Nothing Norwegian about it, and nickle & dimed to death.
Destination: Western Caribbean
There was very More little to do that did not entail extra fees, indicated by the many asterisks on the daily schedule. Bingo cards were sold for $40 each session, gambling involved charging your cc - no stopping in and playing the slots for awhile, it was charge your card in advance, so we didn't do those normal cruising things. I had to use the internet in an emergency so because it was once I didn't buy $100 worth, and it was 75 cents a minute (slower than glaciers) and a $3.75 charge to log in. Even soft drinks were extra. Lotteries! Raffles! Anything to separate you from your money.
Port excursions in Belize, Roatan & Cozumel were great! There were scores of choices and we enjoyed ours very much. But the port talks only involved buying diamonds and tanzanite, nothing about the places. The entertainment was OK. Tim Kaminski, the comic, was hilarious, and Chicago's Second City group tried hard with what suggestions they were given for impromptu comedy but they didn't have much to work with. The dancers & singers were fine. But it's a cheap cruise and you get what you pay for. Less
The best thing about our cabin was the thermostat, which enabled us to warm up after being frozen to death in the public areas. Our cabin was relatively spacious for the 2 of us, beds comfortable and I was able to get a soft pillow the third night out, which helped a lot. Service and cleanliness were top-notch, and the bathroom was more than adequate for a ship.
