The NCL is nickle and diming their cruisers by charging exorbitant prices for their water package.  Since I need to have water by my bedside, I had to buy their water, since they don't allow you to bring it on board.  Other  cruise line don't let you bring water on board, but they don't gouge your pockets with their price.  They charge $3.99 for a 12 pack of 16oz bottles, where as NCL charges $27. for the same amout of water.  They offer OBC, then they don't want to honor it, so I had to fight to get it.  Service in the dining room was slow, and food was cold.  We dined the rest of the week at the buffet, and it was great.

Prettiest port ever, but pier to shore toooo long. They need more shuttle buses to get people to the pool or beach. The majority of cruisers are older adults, many in wheel chairs, walkers, canes, or just too old to walk that far.
