Beautiful Ports, Cheesy Ship
The cruise director and staff were great but the entertainment was a complete joke unless you LOVE the circus. There was a "Russian" juggling act that performed two nights and an Illusionist named Cripton who was just as cheeseball as the ship. All he did was make his "beautiful" More wife "disappear" over and over and over again and each time it was grossly obvious where she "went." It was painful to watch and I was actually embarrassed for them, not to mention over how dramatic the presentation was.
If you want to relax by the pool, get up on deck by 7 am and throw down some towels on the beds and chairs otherwise forget it. No one comes around and monitors how long towels have been laying there without a person and everyone does it. I hate it, but you have to play the game if you want some pool time.
The food I found to be decent with a ton of options. Do not try the eggs Benedict. They are absolutely
disgusting and do read the newsletter that is delivered regarding special culinary evenings because the lobster pasta was delicious.
The ports we visited, Corfu, Santorini, Mykonos and Katakolon were absolutely breathtaking and they made everything about this cruise magical. All in all, I'll do a NCL cruise again, but I want a more "hip" and classier ship next go around. Less
Cabin review: 9065
The cabin was fine, nothing wrong with it at all. Interestingly it was more expensive than my parents balcony cabin because I was traveling with my 15 and 11 year old and my parents only had 2 in a cabin. Seems a bit backward, but whatever. My 11 year old hardly eats anything so I'm sure I didn't get my moneys worth with him.
