I would recommend it because of the value for a 12 day cruise. We had an ocean stateroom and got a very good price from . My personal opinion is NCL is good over all but the excursions are very disappointing. If you are going on this cruise, I would recommend to book your excursions outside of NCL. I had tried to reflect the issues to the excursions desk and I was being ignored. I would definitely travel again with NCL because the value it brings but definitely not the excursion (except for Turkey)

Food and Dining

3 out of 5
The freestyle dining is good, we can eat whenever we feel like to. The free stuff is good enough.

They tried very hard and a couple of the shows was good. The dance sessions was not very long and made my wife very disappointed
