"Horrible, Horrible, Horrible"

Sail Date: August 01, 2006

Reviewed: 10 years ago

Traveled As: Family (young children)

Room Type: Oceanview

What was suppose to be a "Dream vacation", turned out to be the "Vacation from you know where".
We cruised Aug. 13, 2006 round trip from Honolulu. There were 11 adults and 1 toddler in our group. The worse trip I have ever been on. We paid extra for a mini-suite ( there were 3 adults and the toddler in our room) and we got a regular oceanview room; so small we could not all stay in the room at the same time. Sat on the pool deck for over 5 hrs. and not once was approached by anyone to see if I would care for a beverage. This happened more than once. Food lines extremely long at the buffet, restaurants worse, waiting over 2 1/2 hrs. to be served and then the food was cold. $10 per person, per day service charge is a joke. They even charged us the service charge for the toddler in our group.
NCL should be ashamed of this tub!! Maybe they should make an artificial reef out of it. Perhaps the sea life would enjoy it more.
Never again will we sail on NCL. Could write alot more, but I don't think there would be enough space
