It is very obvious the second you set foot on this ship that it is not a ship that was actually designed for Norwegian Cruise Lines. A true Norwegian fan we are, but definitely not of this ship or it's less than desirable attitudes of the staff (most specifically our cabin steward and the obnoxiously rude excursion desk staff). It was most definitely a great trip--but after all, we were in Hawaii--having a great trip had nothing to do with this ship or it's staff. A Norwegian ship is normally very grand and very well put together, but this ship is very comparable to the one time that we actually cruised on a Carnival ship--just far less than our expectation--small areas and very chopped up. Please, if you cruise this ship--don't let the attitudes of the staff and the less than grand appearance and feel of the ship sway you away from Norwegian Cruise Lines--as experienced cruisers and huge Norwegian Cruise fans, this was simply a most disappointing experience--actually a joke as we just couldn't believe that we were on a Norwegian Cruise Line ship. Save your money and book on Carnival or another cruise line for this particular itinerary--just simply not worth the money, a true disappointment. Good Luck to Nowegian Cruise Line America--you have a great deal to learn for sure.
