while the ship itself and the itinerary were first class, the restaurants were terribly. La Cucina specialty restaurant does not deserve to be called specialty. Menu was very simple and quality of food bad. Had the pork scalloping and was insipid and not properly cook. It tasted as it was from synthetic pork. Another bad experience was the Chef Signature dish at Indigo. Again chicken was not properly cooked and tasted as from synthetic chicken . The Bistro was much better, and the Lotus garden the best. We cruise NCL about 10 years ago, and obviously they have gone downhill since then.



Cabin / Stateroom
The cabin attendant was great.

Children's Programs
NCL should close the children's casino, the arcade. Kids ran quite a bill not knowing there was a charge every time they swiped their room key.
