Great ship very modern and energy efficient. They stress free style experience but don't tell you reservations are required for many events and if you book early you miss them. Although you have 3 free restaurants too chose from daily (all same menu) the food was OK. We went to an upgraded (fee) restaurant and the food quality was much better but prices range from $15 to $30 pp and this can get expensive. Service was very good, ship kept very clean. Staff interacts with guest and are seen all over the ship. They have singles only section as well as private area for suites. Rooms were spacious and I liked the glass door in the shower. Turn down service is ok, other cruise lines do more, some night treat. Shopping on board was disappointing. I have multiple cruises with RC, Disney and Carnival and would probable go back to one of those, free style is not for me but would recommend the experience with Norwegian.
