The Norwegian cruise we just completed was so-so. We did this as our 40th wedding anniversary cruise. I was expecting it to be exceptional and it was 

pretty basic. The food was below standards. The dinner selections were a rotation of the same items. My wife is vegetarian and there was nothing. If she wanted to each fish each day that was it. At the buffet they had 2 vegitarian dishes each day, both made with the same curry flavoring. Once is ok but for 10 days? 


The staff serving the meals were a mix of very good to totally untrained. Far more uitrained. Nice enough but didn't have a clue.

The entertainment was very good, comedians and jugglers were uninteresting and not good at all.


Theor wifi should not be offered. We paid $75 for 100 miuntes and spent 8 - 10 minutes trying to log on each time. Not got to really use it. they refuese to give a fefund but kept saying they would take care of it. they did not. A supervisor made up stores and never gave a refiund. very poorly managed ship. Will never, ever return to this cruise line.
