Review summaryNot much more to add. Incredibly disappointing. I am saddened I have such a bad view of the ship and NCL, as a result of this trip. I feel we wasted our time and money and unfortunately still feel we need a vacation.
Food and Dining
Sugarcane Mojito Bar
Great service and drinks here
Syd Norman's Pour House
Great music and events. Doors open during day and becomes one of the few quiet places to gather.
Mediocre food and same selections daily.
Shanghai's Noodle Bar
Delicious, especially the spicy seafood soup
Waves Pool Bar
Slow service and bar staff just walking through the motions. Many complaints overheard here.
O'Sheehan's Neighborhood Bar and Grille
Good food and fun games
Very small, more kid friendly
great experience. Must wear completely enclosed shoes.
Payouts limited. Frequent announcements you may only smoke if actively playing. Some staff a bit rude in requesting you move over 2 feet to the "smoking side". Not your typical comps for free cruise vouchers as seen with competitor cruise lines.
Burn the Floor
Cirque Dreams & Steam
Great experience and most definitely worth it. Not to be missed. Meal was steak, shrimp and veggies with odd pairing of french fries. Lovely salad and dessert. The performance was exceptional!!
Nice adult area
Headliners Comedy Club
Fun times with good comics. Limited seating so arrive early.
Service and Staff
Cabin / Stateroom
Think twice. I know I sound like a complainer but I really want to save anyone else the dissatisfaction we experienced. We are avid, frequent cruisers and have never had a single bad experience with RC, Princess, or other NCL ships. This has sworn me off NCL completely. Such a shame as it was a trip we purchased for our family of eight. We will stick with RC for future travel.
