The ship was huge and VERY crowded. My impression is that they built in as many state rooms as possible and large bars and casinos trying to make the largest profit. Our aft state room was so small and shabby; there was no space to put luggage and belongings. There are 8 elevators on each level, but they were always full. It was always easier to walk on the stairway to get to different decks. The open deck and common areas were also small and shabby. Fortunately we had a room with balcony and good rare view, otherwise, there was very limited areas to view sunrise or sunset.
Food: not good especially the French restaurant which cost $20 extra per person.
The pool: you cannot call it pool. So small and shallow, that one should call it wet area. But there were SO many chairs for sun bathing, and they were always occupied.
As conclusion, I didn't find any pluses for this trip. Felt sick about it!
I have taken Norwegian Wind (an old model ship) to Alaska 10 years ago and loved it. This is why I chose NCL again. But the experiences were day and night different.
