Ship experiences

Food and Dining

4 out of 5
The dining room food was excellent. Lotus Garden was the worst Asian food, tasteless. Le Bistro is an absolute must. Food and service were top notch.

Onboard Activities

Casino wasn’t very generous with the free drinks. I paid for most. Carnival was free after seeing my play.

I won this cabin in the NCL upgrade bid process. It cost $200 more than my guaranteed inside cabin. I love NCL and my balcony

Ship tip

NCL cabin upgrade bid process made my trip! Le Bistro onion soup and rack of lamb
