the trip was average, the food below average except in the specialty dining rooms which were very good.
the Suite. Was the best I have ever had and the highlight of my trip. The only issue with it was that for suites NCL charges additional $2 pp on the tip. $31 per day for tipping seemed a bit much. The Concierge was very good and efficient and probably worth the additional tip, but it seemed odd.
the activities were fair, the prices on drinks quite high, the shops were priced higher than Princess, the shows fair. The tours extremely expensive and mostly sold out before I boarded.
Boarding the ship in Valparaiso and Puert Madryn was a series of upwards ramps which I had only seen in amusement parks! Not good for pax with canes and disabilities.

Fantastic, it had all we needed and the bathroom with separate shower, toilet and a huge tub was the best I ever had
Bistro, Cagneys, Moderno were outstanding restaurants. La Cuccina was quite good but the location is a bit odd. The food in the free of charge restaurants was average, served warm and very repetitious. One day there was shrimp at the buffet which was served by the waitress 6-8 tiny shrimp pp?
