Ship Experiences

Food and Dining

Buffets we're very good\, lots of choices. Main dining room food seemed as cost was the over-riding determination for NCL rather than customer satisfaction. I felt the chefs did the best they could do within strict cost guidelines. Unfortunately\, there is a limited number of ways to present basics like chicken and NY strips. Fish and lobster were dry\, and one time we sent back under-cooked chicken.

Mostly comedians. One ventrilaquist\, Several singers\, flyers\, etc. Only one big show on a 14 day cruise seems strange
