Thank you NCL for a fantastic time on our cruise from Barcelona to Venice...with many stops along the way.  The food was great.  We did not need the specialty restaurants although I am sure they were wonderful  too.  There were so many ports to visit and we took advantage of your planned land excursions in almost every port.  The (only) two days at sea were planned and executed by your staff very well. We loved the shows and attended every one. Lars was a masterful captain who took time to tell us when we were passing various land sights along the way.  Unfortunately many were in the middle of the night.  But that cannot be helped.  I have one complaint. To obtain smaller bills for our Euro on the ship NCL charges a $10.00 fee.  We did not try to change our currency into a different form just wanted to change the denominations.  Shame on you for charging such a huge fee.  Otherwise it was beyond our expectations . We will cruise with NCL again.
