NCL typical dissapointments

Sail Date: June 25, 2011

Reviewed: 5 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Balcony

The NCL freestyle is not a good fit for everybody. Same menu for lunch and dinner at the Blue Lagoon - one page - had it memorized by day 2 or 3. Same lunch menue everyday in the main dining room - gets real old after day 2 or 3!

Pros: The sightseeing and nature views

Cons: The dining and on board experiences

Recommends Norwegian Star? No.

Food and Dining
Menu selections would be greatly improved with a little variety
Good to excellent evening entertainment
Ship Quality
Cabin / Stateroom
No bad - did not appreciate smell of paint three (3) days out of a seven (7) day cruise
Service and Staff
Team tipping is not as effective as individual motivation
