Embarkation: New York (Manhattan)
Check in not bad less than 45 minutes. Got to our cabin inside fwd good size and very clean lots of towels and pillows. Food we avoid the buffet like the plague went to the 3 free dining room menu between all 3 are almost the same. Food quality was very good and well presented service in all 3 restaurant was excellent. Snacks available 24 hrs a day also you can eat at the pub good selection and every night they have a special item like prime rib and ribs also available at an extra cost is specialty ice cream tried a milked shake it was ok.Bars are well stocked and have excellent service. We got the wine package 8 btls for $200.00 great deal you can redeem the coupons at any bar or dining room. Lots of kids on board they promote kids cruise free. Pools and activity are adequate. We saw 3 shows Rock of ages twice the dance show and the comedian/magic show all very good. Did not see the cirque du soleil type show at $50.00 a pop.Also did not do the ice bar we have seen ice hotel twice. More
Casino was good but to much smoke. Would of like doing the specialty restaurant all their menu looked great. EXCURSION DESK did not booked any with them lived in Bermuda for 3 years best way to see the island is the bus. Also all excursion available a shore at 50% off. We were interested in the behind the scene tour to my surprize the cost of the tour was $79.00 un real. At all corner of the ship and every hour of the day they tried to sell you something from bingo to art and watches.
One extra service we tried was the gelato and Carlos bakery stay away very adictive and very good best value on board.
Be on time when they say the ships leaves at 5 in does and you are flying home like some passenger on our cruise.
Front desk and security
WE AD AN INCIDENT WHERE A GOLF BALL WAS DROP FROM ONE OF THE BALCONY AND HIT MY WIFE ON THE LEG CREATING A DECENT SIZE BRUISE ONE OF THE PASSENGER SAID IT WAS THE SECOND TIME IN 30 MINUTES THAT A BALL WAS DROP. REPORTED IT TO THE CUSTOMER SERVICE DESK WITH THE BALL AND LOCATION NOTHING HAPPEN REPORTED AGAIN AT DINNER TO AN OFFICER GOT A CALL SAYING THAT SECURITY WAS GOING TO INVESTIGATE THE DAY BEFORE WE GOT HOME GOT A PHONE MESSAGE THAT IT WAS AN ACCIDENT END OF STORY. ONCE MAYBE BUT TWICE I DO NOT THINK SO. FOR THIS REASON ALONG WE WILL NOT CRUSE NCL AGAIN AND GO BACK TO CARNIVAL . Less
