This was our first Norwegian cruise.  We had a wonderful time!  The staff treated us great.  There was plenty of food but we thought the food wasn't quite as good as the other cruise line we've been on.  We chose an outside room and chose the cheaper price where the cruise line picks the room for you.  It was great with a large picture window.  Our bed was very comfortable.  Every evening there was a great show in the theater.  We love trivia activities and wished they had scheduled a few more.  We booked our excursions through the cruise line and loved each one!  They probably would have been less expensive to book independently but we had no worries with the bookings and they took very good care of us.  This was a great cruise and we have many wonderful memories!

Wondered why they had so many specialty restaurants where you would have to pay extra when you are already paying for food included in the cruise cost.
