Poorly designed ship

The cruise itself was fantastic.  Beautiful islands and a Norwegian staff that really try to make sure that you have the best vacation.  

However... the ship is poorly designed.  The main theater held 850 guests and there were over 4,000 on board.  FREESTYLE went right out the window!  You had to book EVERY show and EVERY dining reservation WAY IN ADVANCE.  Do not even try to board this ship without already planning every detail.  Without reservations you will STAND in the back of theater for EVERY show and NEVER  get into the specialty restaurants.

This is the first time we did not buy the $250 voucher for a future cruise

Thank goodness the main dining hall was good because you cant get into the specialty restaurants


Make sure you book everything way in advance! FREESTYLE is gone!
