Review Summary

Overall we had a good time on this cruise.   The crew members were fun and very accommodating for the most part. The room and balcony were extremely small - hardly enough room for clothing.  Our Dining Room experiences were disappointing; very poor service. NCL wants people to use the pay dining room rather than the Dining Room available for no fee.  We felt like we were being nickleld and dimed to death. . .even the evening shows cost $39.00/person. 
Since we did not pay for the "Havens" we were treated as 2nd class citizens.  The pool was very small and crowded, there was no place to sit.  People hoarded pool chairs and did not sit in them for the entire day keeping others form enjoying the area.  We never laid eyes on the Cruise Director.
