They charge for everything- including eating in a good restaurant on board ship ! Of course you expect to pay extra for alcohol-- but a diet soda at dinner ?.
The main dining room took for every to get service- one moring it took over 2 hours to get a served/sit down breakfast- and then they didn't bring all of the items that were ordered!
The staff was so- so. Because the Cruise line makes the manditory tip added to your final billing, the staff really didn't try that hard.
The food was really just average. You'd expect more from a cruise ship !
The ship was really poorly laid out (compared to a good ship by other lines) it was very hard to find your way around the narrow hallways !

Never again would I go on this trip with NCL !

Pros: nice state room

Cons: Ship layout confusing, main dining room service slow- after the third day food all tasted the same

Recommends Pride of Aloha (RETIRED) 435? No.
