We found a little gem on Deck 11 in Il Adagio for breakfast. They serve made to order omelets, and waffles. It's quiet and there wasn't much of a line. It was quaint, and not a lot of people went up there to eat. Most people hit the buffet for breakfast.
There is a hot tub at the very front of the ship on level 12 that no one seemed to know about. Perfect for a peaceful night with few people.
We will not recommend this cruise our friends and family. I hope that this was an isolated incident and the service we rec'd was from people who were training and did not perform well. Guest services should field their calls better especially if they have a guest who is off to a bad cruise.
The drinks (water) in the room will be charged, so do not open/drink unless you want to pay for it. The water on the ship (free drinking water) tastes bad, so bring your own because you can not get bottled water with the drink package. Definitely get the drink package it is so worth it!
Be careful with your credit card they like to put holds on your account and the sent in a other charge sure the holds come off but it is almost like double billing
Great Outdoors Café always has shorter lines for food.
Go to the QUEST! There is food in the outdoor buffet late at night. Be prepared for the WHite Hot Party and Afterparty!
Take the stairs. It will help you digest all the good food you eat onboard. Take in all the shows you can. You will be happy you did.
Loved the Bistro for dinner - French Cuisine - great service
Loved the spaghetti, fresh cooked eggs and the crepes made fresh the way you like, also. In general most of the buffet foods on the cruise lines we have been on is pretty basic with a 'speciality' night here and there but on NCL they try harder by cooking a number of things fresh
Don't be afraid to haggle with the jewelers on the price. Everything is negotiable!
Go to the Jacuzzi in the front of the ship, the view is amazing and it is never crowded. Also, you should try the midnight food in the back of the ship, it was so cool having prepared food during the night time! Nassau is nice but the private island is cooler. Pl enjoy a mojito at the Bacardi bar.
Reserve a time for dinner. We did this and switched off with the dining rooms each night. This made our wait for a table very short.
Don't forget to check out the italian restuarant in the morning for breakfast - great waffles and the line is short.
Get back to the ship from your shore excursions around 3:00 so you can relax around the pool before it gets too crowded and noisy and so you can get a good chair.
bring extension cord and powerbar.
Make sure you have steak and lobster the first night at the Palace!
Don't bother eating at the places you have to pay a cover charge for... It's no better than the food you already paid for.
Interior staterooms very small - def need to upgrade if you're sailing on this ship
