The best...the staff was superb...happy, helpful, always smiling. I just would hope that on future cruises, (and hopefully the older crowd will read this)....TREAT the staff with respect! TOO many times did we witness some of the elder generation being scornful and down right mean to many of the crew!! It was so sad to watch! They are there to help, and DO try their best! Another suggestion for NCL is to have more midnight buffets. They did have a chocoholic buffet one night and it was fantastically done. The desserts were great, and the presentation was beautiful. However, we did find that we were hungry a few nights, and our only option was a 24 hour lounge that served alot of heavy, fried foods...not so good on the stomach at that hour!
Ports of Call
Pros: New ship, nicely decorated, hand santicizers everywhere
Cons: Freestyle dining isn't so 'freestyle'! A few of the included 'main' dining rooms were booked on the first day which made it impossible to eat at any of them, leaving you stuck with the general, buffet dining room for most nights.
