Too LOUD! Too Often! Just plain Rude!

Sail Date: January 24, 2015

Reviewed: 2 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Oceanview

The Good:  Stateroom Attendant - Excellent!  One show - Burn the Floor - Excellent.

The Fair: Savor Restaurant, food good but deserts lacking everywhere on ship.

Bad: Daily announcements and advertising! Volume so loud it hurt our ears. interrupted shows and activities, the crew would stop what they were doing so we could all hear (blasted) the sales pitch and announcements that were in our daily ship paper.  At the Tropicana Restaurant the music was so loud it ruined our dinner! Island stop - Nassau, waste of time to walk thru dirty city! We attempted early walk off to catch our airport shuttle.  We were forced to stand in line for 30 minutes and look out the open door with gang plank and everything ready for us to leave. We asked why we couldn't leave and were never given an answer.  We almost missed our shuttle! I had to run to it shouting and bang on side of bus!  We will not sail NCL again.  Our experience on Princess was much better!

Ship Quality
Very nice ship, 1 year old.
Food and Dining
Food Ok, desserts were lacking everywhere. Believe lack of quality ingredients.
Cabin / Stateroom
Attendant very good. Also very creative in folding towels. Looked forward to what we would see everyday.
Service and Staff
All ship personel were vey friendly and curtious.
Only one excellant show, Burn the Floor. The rest was fair or you had to pay to see!
Children's Programs Did not watch
Onboard Activities
Trivia, etc was good but always interuppted by extremely loud announcements over P.A. Very Rude!
Destinations and Excursions
Nassau, waste of time to walk thru dirty city.
Miami, Florida Did not spend any time there.
Philipsburg, St. Maarten
Nice clean town, relaxing time.
Charlotte Amalie, St. Thomas
Did not see city, went snorkeling. Had a great time! Great crew and Great rum punch!
Nassau, Bahamas
Excursion cancceled due to mechanical problems. Dirty city with nothing to see or do.


Dine early for good seating. Do not go to Tropicana unless you are deaf or would like to be deaf! The ship has "Early Easy Walk Off" for departure if you have an early flight home. We arrived at exit door before 8 am and had to stand in line for 30 minutes and look thru open door to gang plank!
