NCL Driven by profit

Sail Date: March 2014
Destination: Mexican Riviera
Embarkation: Los Angeles

Don't go on this ship! Service was super slow. Not enough help. Example: it took 55 minutes to get our appetizer after we were seated. This was in the Italian restaurant that adds a surcharge. Also the appetizer itself was pathetic. I get a much higher quality salad from Wendy's .

Food at the buffet on the 12 th floor didn't change much. Same food every day. Quality was similar to Golden Corral.

The service people worked very hard, but there weren't enough to meet the demand.

Announcements over the ship intercom were many times given by people with heavy accents. It was difficult to understand them.

Two changes for the better:

1. When getting off the ship at a port, the passengers aren't held hostage by ship photographers.

2. In the past, service people would at least three times per minute, ask someone lounging, if they wanted a drink. It got old fast.

This is the first review I have ever written. That tells you how More negative my experience was. Less

Service worker for my cabin did an excellent job. He had sixteen cabins to maintain.
