Disappointed in Norwegian

Sail Date: February 20, 2016

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Balcony

We typically use Royal Caribbean cruise lines but Norwegian had some different port of calls we have not been to. Norwegian was ok but not worth the price. The ship was terrible. We had great weather the whole time bit the ship rocked hard back and forth. Standing up was difficult on the upper decks. We have been in rough weather in Royal Caribbean ships and they were much more stable. The food was ok, most of the dinning staff was rude and would just push their way through you without a word. I guess when you are forced to give them a tip they don't feel like they need to work hard to make you happy. Entertainment was very good but the shipped lacked many things to do. We paid for dinner that was pricey and that food was worse than the included buffet. The buffet food was pretty good though. The evening dinning was ok but the gardens restaurant was slow. Be prepared to stay over an hrs to get all your food. The Windows was much better. Even though the ship was remodeled, it still looked out dated and the work done looked terrible.

Cabin / Stateroom
Cabin was ok. The beds were 2 mattresses butted up to each other. The centers of the mattresses were well worn with large sags. Nothing special at all with the rooms.
