The best part of our cruise was watching the evening shows. They were excellent except for the country show which was too modern for my taste. The worst? A tie between the horrendous embarkation process - 3 hours in the heat with surly workers and distraught parents - and suffering from the Norwalk Virus I am still recovering from. I started feeling sick on day 7 but thought it was due to heavy seas. I have been home 4 days now and still can't eat anything.
20 percent of the staff were excellent. Most did not smile. Some were downright rude. If you are planning on the excursion to fishing town of Livingston be prepared to be in a small boat for an hour in heavy swells if the wind is blowing that day. Food in the dining room ranged from excellent small portions to cold huge portions. There was no consistency. Buffet dining was not well staffed and the food was not memorable. We will not be travelling on Norwegian again.

You have paid your money so make use of the dining room. MEN - No need for jacket and tie but bring a pair of long pants and closed toe shoes. WOMEN - no shorts but any smart casual outfit will do.
