I have gone on several cruises before and my newlywed husband had been on one before. This was both of our first on a Norweigan cruise ship. I had heard many positive things about Norweigan before\, which makes us both question if the negative aspects of the cruise were because it is a short cruise and so maybe Norweigan does not try to make it as high quality as the longer cruises\, but having never been on any other Norweigan ones we're really not sure... The food on all of the other cruises I have been on has always been amazing and the food on this cruise was really not good; for example\, one night we both got steaks and neither of us (who are both big eaters) could not finish them because they were just not appetizing. The staff on the ship were also much less friendly\, we even had a staff member write a note on top of a room service pizza box saying \"this is trash\" rather than throwing it away (they would have had easier access to a large trash can). The room was quite a bit smaller than other ships we've been on. We also did not like that people were able to smoke wherever they wanted outside on the ship as it makes it unpleasant to walk across the deck and most cruise ships confine smoking to certain areas for this reason.
