Review SummaryWe were very dissapointed in the overall cruise. My husband and I bragged up the cruise with my 5 sisters and there husbands being there first cruise. Little did we know there was a convention on board at the same time. 600 doctors which had the rule of the ship. One of the main dinning rooms was closed as well as the main theather and other smaller rooms throughout the ship. Because of one dinning room closed everyone who chose to eat in the other main dinning room had a waiting time of 90 minutes just to get in, then another 30 minutes between courses. Of course there were other places to eat throughout the ship at an extra cost to you. The food was the same everynight with 3 alternate entrees to choose from. Also there was only one buffett which had to accommidate all the people on board. Food was low quality and very dissapointing. Activities on board were also dissapointing. they offered bingo every day but you can only afford one day of that at $50 a game. The activities lacked in substance and entertainment. We thought they would have a nice 4th of july celebration but nothing but a few decorations in the buffett area. Overall a big let down after planning for a year to take this cruise. We will not be doing a Norweigain cruise again.

Don't Miss: White Pass train ride was excellent
Cons: No access to many of the rooms on board because of a convention, including one of the main dinning rooms, the main theather and other small rooms like the card room . The food was not the high quality we had heard about on cruises.
