After having cruised with Celebrity, Norwegian just didn't compare. I don't agree with a set tipping method as the cruise employees get the same tip no matter how they serve you. We didn't care for the freestyle method of cruising. On other cruises, we have made friendships that still exist, but on this cruise, this didn't happen as we never dined with the same people nightly sharing our days experiences. We felt that Norwegian was pushing for $$ for everything. My wife attended what she (and everyone else) thought was a fitness seminar, but it was just a push for a $299 spa treatment. The ship was beautiful but we've had better food. If we hadn't cruised on other lines, this cruise would have been fine.
