Ship was clean and staff friendly. Activities were sufficient for a long cruise. We made good use of the gym facilities. The highlight was the music and entertainment -- best we have ever seen on a ship!

The ports were interesting and loads of tours were available.

The only negatives were the very disorderly disembarkation process -- needs significant improvement -- and the fact that we picked up a respiratory bug for the second time on Norwegian. Could it be the air filtration equipment? We certainly washed our hands frequently enough!

Food and Dining

3 out of 5
Specialty restaurants and Garden Restaurant were superior to the main dining rooms in food selection and quality. Portion sizes were good -- not too large.
