Mixed Feelings

Sail Date: November 2013
Destination: Bahamas
Embarkation: New York (Manhattan)

This was my 34th cruise and my 6th with NCL...will simply list positives and negatives..

Positives:

Beautiful ship with a lovely promenade deck

Large screen in atrium which was great for football games and movies

O'Sheehan's pub a nice (free) additional option for meals

Fire and Ice ( a performing couple) were excellent

Great Stirrup Cay has really been built up over the years...makes for a really nice stop

Negatives:

Embarkation was very slow and the "priority" I was supposed to get never materialized as I was rudely herded into a lineup

Pool is very deep and way too small for size of ship

Food is so-so, especially desserts

Booked a studio room ( and paid a lot) expecting the much touted "hostess" to organize dinners etc. but she did absolutely nothing all week...also paid $12.50 for a drink in the studio lounge which was a rip off..NCL doesn't really seem very committed to making More cruising better for their solo passengers

Thought Rock of Ages was very disappointing...more like a high school production

TV options in room are terrible

Room service slow and, at least in my case, got order completely wrong even after the girl on the phone had repeated it carefully to me...go figure... Less

Cabin review:

Studio cabins are really well planned though small...plenty of storage space...bed was really comfortable. Cleanliness could certainly have been better as I found junk on the carpet that had not been vacuumed up when I arrived....
