Great cruise, excellent value and I would love to cruise with Norwegian again. The food was delicious! Overall the crowd was pretty mellow. It was nice for couples, families and singles. There was a good mix of everything.

Felt like we needed more time in each port, except Naples. Always felt rushed. The price of your bottled water is ridiculous!! $5 per bottle or $53 for a case...come on that alone leaves a bad taste in your mouth. Then to add insult to injury it said if you purchase the water before the cruise it would be cheaper....NOT TRUE!! You were discounting the water for a case to $49 plus adding a bottle holder at a nominal price. No one would even address that situation with me. So although the steward, and wait staff is excellent...your customer service is poor. I know that isn't much of a difference...it is just the point of it all. You can't say one thing and then do another. Or show one photo and have it not be the same. Loved Italy and Greece, NCL not so much!! That is the only reason overall rating is 2.8 because of the Ports of Call.

Great first cruise with beautiful ports, plus we enjoyed Rome before and after the cruise. We learned a lot of little things that will make any future cruise experiences even more enjoyable.

Hit the Windows restaurant right when they open at 5:30pm and you can get a seat right by the windows.

Bring a good pair of binoculars for the great views you will see.

Eat at one of two main dining rooms as much as possible for exceptional steak, seafood, etc. If you do that most of the time (rather than the buffet), no need to pay for premium dining. Also, a great 24 hour diner on board has amazing chicken wings and fish n' chips... beats the buffet!
