Review summary

We had a terrible experience with the food on the ship it was cold all the time and when asked to please bring food hot personnel were rude . They had the same exact food for 7 days  changed the menu but same food  especially mostly was Indian spicy food.  Also getting off the ship for Handicap wheelchair accessibility no one there to help my mother get off the ship so was not able to go for excursions.  There was a personnel Mr. Luis Ramos gust services that was rude towards me on the ship which I will report to Norwegian corporate offices.He almost made us loose our short excursions.  I will never recommend this ship to anyone. 

Sincerely, Ms. Aleman

Cabin Stewart Marck was great!!! But Mr. Luis Ramos - Guest Services on the ship was rude to me because of my pet. Then i had to report him to his supervisor. Also we bought an excursions and he directed us the wrong way and we almost lost the group and made it difficult for us to find the group with my Handicap mother. He was terrible also in organizing the excursion for the handicapped.
