Ship is very well maintained and spotless. We thought buffet had wasted space using large booths instead of more tables and chairs.

I went on a zip lining excursion from Norwegian. After the practice run something went wrong and after 2 hours trip was cancelled because they couldn’t fix the problem. I was very disappointed.
