Just a few comments...


Ship was full but rarely seemed crowded. 

Food was good and ample...well presented and

tasty for the most part...but not outstanding.

Ship was very clean...and our cabin steward pleasant and competent.

Rooms are typically small...furniture is dated but adequate.

NCL tends to charge for everything ...not just excursions, which is fair..

but for bottled water..and many programs.

Good entertainment...varied and talented.

Pool area and sports areas are OK but nothing special..and not enuf

for the crowds involved .

Loud speaker for announcements are difficult to hear in the cabins

Toilet paper is thin and flimsy...and toilet seats are for infants~

Showers were fine and plenty of hot water...and towels.

Soap only in dispensers.
