not what we expected from NCL

Sail Date: May 13, 2013

Traveled As: Large Group

Room Type: Inside

We have cruised the last 3 years on 3 different cruise lines, Royal, Carnival, and Norwegian. We heard and read that NCL was one of the best cruise lines and we were very disappointed on our cruise with them this year. The ship was about the same size as the last 2 we were on but the lay out wasn't very good. Small atrium, small buffet area with kinda poor seating and one of the rooms they used for shows was very cluttery and the seating was terrible. The food was average, and there was a decent amount of things to do but overall fun entertainment like comedians and fun shows really lacked compared to the other cruise lines. I guess im mostly dissapointed because I really expected alot more out of NCL from what I was told and what I experienced on other cruise lines. I would have a hard time booking again anytime soon with NCL, im sure their bigger ships are nicer but im not willing to book and findout.

not impressed by any means...
Nassau, Bahamas
plenty to do, very close to Atlantis. What a GREAT place to visit for a day of fun.
Great Stirrup Cay (Cruiseline Private Island), Bahamas
still under some construction, not as nice as other private islands we been to. prices way to high for some rentals and the beach was full of big rocks going into water ( wear beach shoes)


for breakfast the outside buffet was easy to get in and out of line. and out riggers lounge was a very neat place to hang out in the evening.
