Review summary

NCL has really lowed their standards - Wow - food was okay - bad service and lukewarm food and same food over and over again and lack of entertainment great if ya 90 years old - was very bored - and the fact that we never got to spend time on the ports because of ship being so late - I look elsewhere

Nice but hard to find a chair on sea days and watch the legs of chairs when you walk - pee were tripping over

Public Sundeck

4 out of 5

But watch your step - everyone walking was tripping over legs of lounge chairs - get there early to get a chair especially on sea days - they packed
