I've sailed NCL before and this by far was the worst ship encounter. The Embarkation was a fiasco.
The staterooms are fine, they vary by decor ship to ship.
The entertainment shows were great. The Magician and Comedian were the best part of the entertainment.
The food was acceptable.
The best part of our trip was the helicopter flight and trek to Mendenhall Glacier. Which I highly recommend. be prepared for high cost excursion.

Have patience when eating in the Garden Cafe. The menu does not change much. the Azure & Tsar restaurant were our best meals throughout the cruise.
Be prepared for expensive excursions. Book your excursion early.
