This was our first experience on NCL. It was a good cruise but I doubt we will visit them again. 

Food was okay, first time at fine dining restaurant took over 2 hours. Regular menus, thin steaks. Just not with it. Shouldn't have to pay extra for a nice meal.

Limited cigar smoking areas, felt like cigar smoking should be allowed on balconies as long as door was shut, they allow cigarette smoking.

Night shows were fantastic and really made the cruise. Best high light of trip.

Staff really made an effort trying to meet expectations of guests.

Excursions too speedy for what is offered.
