I was curious to experience the "free style" dining that Norgewian has been promoting so we book a week cruise on one of their new ship. Turned out that out of 27 restaurants only 5 were included and didn't required an upcharge furthermore out of the 5 that were available 3 shared the same menu every day making it a very limited choice of food. The quality of the food was acceptable but nothing specials and most restaurant closed at 9:30 making it hard to go to shows. One evening I had a cup of "Boullaibaise" however the chef left the parts of the mussle's shell so I cut my lips. other than the food the cruise was fine but hard to get over the food issues.
