This was my second NCL cruise but this second version of freestyle dining is not a good deal. My main complaint is that the food at the free restaurants is really average, its like going to Bob Evans or something like that, is not cruise quality. They have two free venues but both offer the same menu on the same day. I think they should lower the price of the french and italian restaurant. The food at the italian restaurant was comparable to Olive Graden, but I have to pay, not free. The decor on the italian restaurant was so simple...Crossings restaurant decor and service was awful.
My second biggest complaint is about the kids..I have a 4 & 8 year old and when they saw the kids pool, they wanted to get out of the ship!! The kids program is two little rooms in the corner of the ship with a couple of Wii's (so is called the kids corner) . My kids did not like it...although they like the facilitators and that made the difference. Finally, they do not have kids program during the day, so if you wnat to do an adult excursion you have to pay babysiiting fees, and your kids get stuck in the corner....awful. We tried to make the best out of it, but I will not do it again.
