Review summary

This was my 6th cruise, but the first time on Norwegian Cruise Line.

We found that toilet flushes in our stateroom were queued with flushes from other staterooms.  Sometimes, there was no noticeable delay between a button push and an actual flush.  More often, there was a 20~30 second delay.  In quite a few instances (around 8 a.m. or before we were about to disembark for shore excursions), there was a 5-minute delay (I actually timed this delay several times)!  This was embarrassing.  I have not experienced this phenomenon (i.e., queuing toilet flushes) in other cruise ships.

The destinations (port calls) and shore excursions were good.  It could have been quite good with a better ship, better food and better entertainment program.
