Review summary

Norwegian is quite satisfactory; we are pleased with the cleaning, the somewhat comfort of the staterooms, most of the food; most of the workers and certainly most of the shows and the band. We were disappointed with the casino, not with most of the friendly workers like Sasa and Belina, but with the amazing never winning there. Food was improved from other cruises and for us, not wanting to spend a long time eating, the buffet was fantastic - there were some excellent helpers: the guy omelet maker, the helpers: Rade, the Colombia lady, etc. The specialty restaurants now with a la carte shows the NCL CEO greed. You should remember that if people are eating at the specialty restaurants, you are saving their meals in the other dining rooms.

suggestions: 1. during the cocktail for latitude, some of the crew should stick around longer - it's a god marketing time. Not just be introduced and leave especially because food and drinks don't last long. Most of the shows (especially the Norwegian band/ dancers/ singers and Aaron Shaw) were excellent.

2. Sea days are nice but you should have some interesting stops as well. (We like your new cruises to So America; Australia and Asia)

We hope you try to always improve so cruising will be in our agenda.

Cabin / Stateroom

After asking the cabin Stewart to do something about the mattress it became a lot better. The little seat however was awkward and not comfortable. All in all these simple problems did not interfere with our enjoyment of the cruise.

Ship tip

Don't use the casino; the gambling hardly ever give you anything back. The wheel in the black jack is weird, only stops in $11. If you are impatient with eating, use the buffet. The quality of food in it has improved considerably.
