the good - service in the dining room and the friendliness of the cabin staff/stewards


the bad - the entertainment - the dancers and singers were not what i consider "family entertainment"  there were many young children in the audience and both shows we went to were more pg-13 than suitable for families.  the comedian that was the entertainment the other two nights made many crude, off color jokes that were not family friendly.  it was disappointing.


i asked to speak to the shore excursion supervisor after an unpleasant encounter with the shore excursion desk staff.  he was dismissive and did not seem concerned about our point of view or how my daughter was treated.


our family will not choose norwegian cruise line again.  the food was just ok, the entertainment desperately needs some review and revision to be appropriate for families.  i'm not a prude but i was embarrassed sitting next to a family with children during the shows i went to.  we chose to go on norwegian thinking this would be a family friendly cruise.  next time we'll choose differently.
