This is our 5th cruise with NCL and not the greatest. The weather was wonderful, the locations were fabulous, the ship and staff, not so much. Food was adequate, service average, only two stellar employees. Entertainment was good, enjoyed Murray the magician, The Second City and Romano Frangipani the juggler. We upgraded to a balcony cabin this trip and didn't feel it was that much better. One great sunset, floorplan was not great, too much furniture in the room to move around. We put tables and a chair on the balcony.
