Nice ship for a first time cruiser, but not for those who know better...

Sail Date: September 18, 2016

Reviewed: 8 months ago

Traveled As: Large Group

Room Type: Balcony

Argumentative staff, constant nickel & dime-ing, and par food at best. We went on NCL because it was a great line for "foodies" like me. I couldn't be more wrong. There were highlights, but they were few & far between.


The embarkation/disembarkation was a NIGHTMARE. The rooms had little a/c and took 2 1/2 hours from our arrival time to set foot on the ship. Very disorganized.


We were spoiled by Disney Cruise Line, so any future cruises will be through them. This is our first and last cruise through NCL.

Cabin / Stateroom
Small for a "Mini-Suite", no bells & whistles that warranted the extra money.

Food and Dining


Stick with the Specialty Dining as much as possible. Run far, far away from the main dining rooms.
