Good but not good enough

Sail Date: August 01, 2016

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Oceanview

The staff was the most friendly I've ever sailed with. The rooms, ship and eating areas were all nice and clean. This was my fourth cruise and all before had been on Carnival. We wanted to try something different so we tried Norwegian. The entertainment was very lacking in the amount but was good quality. Carnival has something going all the time and Norwegian didn't. Carnival is very informative with the passengers and Norwegian just excepted you to know what was going on. The free or included restaurants on Norwegian gave you an up-charge on things that you just get with Carnival such as lobster and steak. If you want a cruise to lay around and read or sleep or lay out by the pool then Norwegian has you covered. If you want to be entertained then go with Carnival.    

Cabin / Stateroom
Very nice for a cruise ship.
Embarkation and Disembarkation
Getting on was easy but no info on what to do or when to do it getting off the boat.
Ship Quality
Onboard Activities
Not enough
Good quality entertainment but not enough.
Service and Staff
Food and Dining
Too many up-charges for food that should be included.
