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.
