THIS WAS MY 1ST CRUISE ON NCL. MY 2 PRIOR WERE ON ROYAL. I LIKED THE CASUAL DRESS CODE ON NCL, BUT THE NICER DINING WAS ALL AT ADDL CHARGES. THE SERVICE WAS NOT EVEN CLOSE TO ROYAL. IT TOOK US 3 HOURS TO EAT IN THE STEAKHOUSE AFTER WE SAT DOWN. ALSO, WE TRIED TO SCHEDULE OUR DINNER MEAL AROUND THE PRIMARY SHOW OF THE EVENING, BUT THE 2 SHOWS THAT WERE SCHEDULED WHEN WE MADE OUR RESERVATION WERE CHANGED TO 1 SHOW AND WE MISSED IT DUE TO THE 3 HOURS IT TOOK TO GET OUR FOOD IN THE STEAKHOUSE. THE LACK OF VARIETY IN ENTERTAINMENT IN THE VARIOUS LOUNGES WILL SEND ME BACK TO ROYAL FOR ALL MY FUTURE CRUISES. THE SUITES ON NCL WERE MUCH SMALLER ON NCL AS COMPARED TO ROYAL.

SMALL ISLAND WITH JUST GET IN THE WATER ACTIVITIES. I GOT STUNG BY 2 JELLY FISH. I DIDN'T KNOW THAT WAS A POSSIBLITY IN THOSE WATERS. IT WOULD HAVE BEEN NICE TO BE WARNED BY THE SHIP'S ACTIVITIES DIRECTOR.

Pros: THE CASUAL DRESS AT ALL EVENTS

Cons: FOOD WAS SUB-PAR AND LACK OF ON-SHIP ENTERTAINMENT

Recommends Norwegian Sky? No.
