Review summary

THIS NCL SHIP PROVIDED THE LOWEST QUALITY FOOD AND SERVICE IN MAIN DINING ROOMS AND BUFFET. STAFF WERE UNIFORMED AND INFLEXILE (THEY NEVER COMPENSATED FOR POOR WEATHER CONDITIONS). SHIP'S LOUNGES ARE UNCOMFORTABLE. MUSIC AT PUBLIC AREA LIKE POOL WAS INAPPROPIATE FOR AGE OF PASSENGERS.
