The ports and weather were great.

Unfortunately NCL is no longer our favorite cruise line.

They are allowing smoking on both sides of the deck 7 so we could not enjoy a stroll on the deck. Smoking is still allowed in the casino while most other cruise lines have stopped that practice.

The guest services staff were unfriendly and unhelpful.

The ship is in poor shape with many malfunctions. 

Food variety and quality is not as it was on other NCL ships.

TV programing is poor and the same movies were played for 28 days.

Very small with little storage. Noisy from above.

Ship Tip

Check the phone system right away. The message center works only sporadically.
Allow extra time in the dinning rooms. Some days it took way too long to finish dinner.

do not book the tour that does not enter the Ephesis ruins. You cannot see anything from the lower gate so it is a waste of time.
