Overall it was a wonderful experience, special kudos to Mike our great waiter/Asst. Maitre'd (all of us thought before he got his promotion that this man needed to be higher up in the organization)  Two days later he was!  Probably our excellent perception of staff.  He added so much to our trip with his professionalism and humor.  Next kudos to Eugene our room steward, he did an superb job taking care of us.  


Only things that need improving--entertainment, language skills of restaurant staff and a suggestion--could the ladies serving in the restaurants tone down the perfume, it overwhelmed the food experience.


The food was good in all the venues we visited with a weakness in the sushi/oriental area, there seemed to be grit in the veggies, don't know what it was?


Hope to see you on a Norwegian cruise soon!!



Cabin / Stateroom
Very comfortable, bathroom was wonderfully accessible. For some reason the furniture had been rearranged in an illogical fashion, obviously the beds should have been with their headboards to use the reading lights, hop you don't mind that we did a little moving.
Embarkation and Disembarkation
First morning seemed to be total chaos, as a handicapped person it was very difficult to get someone to send us down in an elevator. I would hate to have an emergency disembarcation.

Disembarking and returning were long lines and cumbersome, perhaps Mr. Putin should consider that we are bring in hard currency and we like the Russian people!
