Where should I start.  Food in the Garden resturant was usually cold by the time we found a table and treked back to get our beverages.  When we checked into our room we went to make coffee and our coffee pot was filled with old water and t bags from previous cruisers, not very inviting.  The extra expenses on everything and continually watching our money just dwindle away...was not what we expected when we signed up for this "Vacation".  We felt the shore excursions were very expensive and it is easy to see that Norwegian does not pay the tour people  much for their services...again more money needed to pay them as well. The constant selling reminded us both of "Timeshare" companies chasing us around to buy buy buy.  We had to really just entertain ourselves.  My husband had a breathing problem right after boarding the ship.  This continued until we got off.  Is there a problem with your air conditioning?  We were told by other cruisers there are better cruises we should investigate in the future.  We really looked forward to this holiday and hope our next one will be better.  With regret we would not reccommend Norwegian Cruice Lines.
