NCL disappointed us this time

Sail Date: March 01, 2006

Reviewed: 11 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Balcony

It was our 4th cruise with NCL. It seems like they are understaffed this year. Staff is trying hard, smiling and being freindly, but you can feel that they are overworked. Bar people do not give you a chance to have a conversation with your friends offerring drinks non stop (drinks are extra charge!!!, no lack of staff in this department). If you are not a heavy drinker - bring a sign with you "No drinks needed at this time". No trays in buffet creates a lot of extra traffic and confusion.
Bring your oun pillows, you will not regret that.
A lot of repeatition from previous cruises - they keep using the SAME words over and over in a Lier Club, same comedians (Second City group). Great disco room but DJ plays mostly hip-hop; however, if you make your requests - you will get it.
Overall, If it is your first cruise - you will most likely love it. If you cruised before - you might be disappointed (a lot of people expressed that opinion).

Pros: Freestyle

Cons: Repeated entertainment from previous years

Ship Quality
Food and Dining
Slow service. Food is great but varriety could be bigger, but: If you feel like you are craving a food that is not on a menu - ask, chances are high you will have it!
Cabin / Stateroom
No refrigerator in the room. Horrible pillows. Bathrooms have mold on tiles, sand and hair on the floor. Bring air freashener. Great choice of moves on TV
Service and Staff
Friendly but overworked
Lots of repeatition from previous cruises.
