A Very Disappointing Cruise
Destination: Western Caribbean
My husband and I attended one of the Dance Parties and one of the entertainment staff made what I called a rude and offensive gesture towards me. I was appalled and we went back to our stateroom. If you want to watch the same T.V. shows and movies over and over, turn on Channel 29 and 30. I think I can recited some of the scenes by heart.
The excursions were O.K. The excursion that we took on St. Thomas was great. Zip Lining was fun. Our excursion in Atlantis was poor. Not worth the money and not well planned out.
The highlights of the cruise was the Cruise Director Julie and Assistant Cruise Director Joel. Their high energy and professionalism was a breath of fresh air. The High Ropes Course was a great experience. The Climbing Wall and Zip Line on the ship was never opened. Not sure if they were open while we were in port but never while sailing. The ship has a pool area for children and an area for adults. There were children in the adult pool and hot tubs making it difficult for adults to use. The lounge chairs were packed in a line so tightly that we felt like sardines.
If I had to give the cruise a grade, it would be "D" for Don't Sail. I filled out the post cruise survey and expressed my disappointment and I have yet 3 weeks later have heard back from them. Bad customer service from start to finish.
The State Room was small but good enough for the time I thought I was going to spend in it.
Port and Shore Excursions
Not worth the money. Would have done better going off on our own.
Awesome week on the Norwegian ...
Crowded and noisy!
Very nice 5 day cruise
