This was our first cruise with Norwegian.  We have done approximately 21 other cruises with Carnival and Royal Caribbean and wanted to see if Norwegian was any different/better.  We were very disappointed.  The service was just "OK" in the dining rooms.  We did not even get to go to Great Stirrup Cay.  The Captain canceled the trip stating the winds were too high causing "rough seas".  Again, we have been on several other cruises and the seas were no worse than others we have been on.  When the announcement was made there were actually a couple small boats around our ship that were not experiencing any problems.  We feel the decision was not only not warranted but was made too quickly.  Perhaps we could have waited a couple hours to see if the winds died down to what the Captain perceived as appropriate.

Did not get to go....were told that the "small print" in our contract states the Captain can cancel for safety reasons if necessary.
