old ship, nasty food

this cruise was a disappointing experience, starting with the reservation mess up that didnt put our party of four with adjoining rooms. we booked 10months in advance and neither cheap cruises or NCL would take any responsibility for the error. the food was substandard and the ship was old and small. the only thi g we enjoyed was the entertainment crew and the bartending staff.
