Sail Date: August 02, 2013
Ship: Norwegian Sky
Cabin Type: Inside

First cruise I have been on or heard of with no captain's night, no late night exhibits like the fruit sculptures, no ice sculpture show, no chocolate display sculptures and all of these in the past were displays as well as taste stations. Things once experienced is amazing and expected. No mid-night events that was inviting. Very disappointed. Also, in my son's room he received no towel displays at all....not a one. Some things that you just expect on a cruise was not there. I will not travel Norwegian cruise line again and would recommend my family and friends to go either Royal or Carnival. More inclusive activities. Also, the buffet food was great, however the restaurant food was not as good, the steak tasted boiled not much flavor. The bread pudding tasted like custard not bread pudding, the restaurant was very disappointing. The atmosphere great the food as well as the waiter we had was very non-attentive.
