Overall NCL is a great value cruise line.  Service is great, it's clean and their general food is good.  Their entertainment needs some improvement - same comedian performed multiple nights and wasn't very funny, many singers are no better than karaoke and some events haven't changed in years, which gets old.  The food was mostly good, but my worst meal came from a specialty restaurant. My advise is not to waste your money one their speciality Resturants - they are not worth it.

Cabin / Stateroom
Embarkation and Disembarkation
Really great except at one port it took almost an hour to get back onboard.
Ship Quality
Destinations and Excursions
Onboard Activities
They really need new activities. I've been cruising for 20+ years and some things never change and really need to.
Needs an overhaul and improvements.
Service and Staff
Food and Dining
Specialty isn't as good as the main dining room.
