My husband and I had Fun, but we would have a nicer cruise if the ship was dispensing straws.

We booked an excursion at every port of call. We enjoyed the places we've visited. However, we wished that we were able to spend some minutes to go shopping for souvenirs in Dubrobnik, Croatia.

Ship experiences

Food and Dining

3 out of 5
Waited too long for dessert at Cagneys. We're just leaving when the sandwich for my husband came but the ice cream was melting. We will not go back to Cagneys Steakhouse again on our future cruises. However, we loved our experience at Le Bistro.

We particularly loved the White Magic show and that of the juggler.

Service and Staff

3 out of 5
We only met our Cabin Attendant on the 3rd day of the cruise. Our bed sheets were very course and pillows very heavy. Our attendant gave us extra sheet (smoother) which I requested and he put over the comforter, per my instruction. The top of the comforter was smoother than the sheet that was placed over the terrible bed. Following morning when I saw the attendant, I told him that I loved our bed now. He smiled.

We're happy that there were enough electrical outlets we're able to use.

Ship tip

Bring your own straws. Norwegian stop providing them. Without straw, it was sometimes hard to drink from the glass of soda or cocktails.
