The ports were wonderful and excursions well-planned. On-board speaker system was WAY too loud just for the captain to tell us we were still on the Atlantic and headed to Miami ...... for 6 days straight. Entertainment was excellent. Tsar Restaurant had very slow service but Azures was prompt and virtual no wait time for a table or service. Excellent fitness center. Interior staterooms were very dimly lit and very hard to read by. Room steward was a country singer wanna-be which was highly entertaining. Disbarkment was a fiasco at the pier. I have certainly had better with NCL. Luggage and people everywhere tripping over each other. I was disappointed that the excellent service ended the moment we left the gangway.
