Overall I enjoyed the cruise, but not the ship so much. The ship is very large and beautiful, but not setup or staffed properly. The pool area is way too small for that ship size, could hardly get in. Bar at pool and spice h2o hardly ever had enough staff, making it very difficult to get a drink. Karaoke was lame, as the song selection is old and not current. FOD/LGBT was a joke, as it was not reserved and/or no signage, so other guests took over the space and there was no way to really meet. The first 2 port stops was not enjoyable, bad location and not much to do (think NCL should help sponsor rides to good locations while at port, as the local taxies were sketchy and we were not confident of safety). The time to board took forever, cramming many people into the room for a long time before we could board the ship. With my reservation, I had dinner for 2 at the Italian restaurant, but took 4 visits to customer service desk to get the cleared up, as they were trying to charge me.
