Review summary

They have VERY boring entertainment. To save money. They fill their auditorium during bingo and take in tons of money...then pay out $164 for a bingo blackout. Word to the wise....keep your money!!. I played in a blackjack tournament and on other ships is you get to final game you at least get a free t-shirt and payout is ALWAYS $500 if you win. This ship paid around $100....Pathetic! Scam!. They had to have made at least $5000 in entries each bingo game or blackjack tournament yet pay out $164 and $100. One way give money and they take that money!! Please don't be scammed by them. Food was ALWAYS the same. Very boring foods especially a 2 week cruise.NO food anywhere past 10pm. Seating for meals at buffet VERY crammed! People fighting with one another trying to snag a seat to be able to eat. Poor accommodations for elderly or disabled! Poor cheap entertainment. Repeat acts! They are in the news for stocks improving and NCL making the customers expense!!
