Review summary

First time on a Norwegian cruse and was a bit disappointing...I'm disabled and was not warned when I booked that there was going to be a lot of walking to get to elevators. I was using a walker and could not use the stairs. Felt there were not enough daytime activities as other cruse lines and the evening entertainment was good but not enough. Also I have to add, it was worst drink service in public areas I've ever experienced on a cruise!

Service and Staff

3 out of 5
Bar Service was very poor...not enough waiters...waited 45 min in casino to get a drink..since most cruse deals include free drinks, they differently need more wait staff

Ship Quality

4 out of 5
Very modern and clean. Did not like that there were only two elevator banks ( at each end of ship, non in middle) which made a midship room not so cool...lots of walking. Also the bathrooms were located by the elevators so again there was alot of walking.
