don't bring wine

Most cruiselines permit one bottle of wine per person to be brought on board free of charge. Apparently Norwegian no longer permits this  without a fee. Based on the size of the confiscation line we were not the only ones to realize this. Also, our cabin steward was the worst we have ever had in our extensive cruise history. The cruise was great as was the food and most of the ships crew. Norwegian has stopped the lobster night unless you pay for one of the upscale restaurants. This is blasphemy in our books, what no lobster??? Just more of the nickel and dime stuff that seems to be creeping into the cruise scene.  $3.00 for a bottle of water I can get at Costco for 10 cents is excessive in my books.

Our cabin was over the stabilizer motor. The whine of the motor was unbearable and they moved us when we complained. Why they assign these rooms to anybody is beyond comprehension. They even said they upgraded me from my original cabin category. I wish we would have been downgraded then. The new cabin 5102 was fine.

Do not take the bath cave tour. The path was terrible and the beach was closed to swimming.

Buffet was great but enjoyed the Summer Palace the best. Not one for standing in lines to touch utensils that have been handles by others.
