We are mid 50's empty nesters and pretty much just like to 'chill'. We're not partiers and not big drinkers, but enjoy the 2 for 1 martini special. The ship is very well maintained ad totally love the experience. Service this time was the best we've ever seen. On our last NCL cruise we opted a couple of times for the premium restaraunts but I honestly can't justify the extra $ for food that really isn't any better than what is served in the main dining rooms. And the food is excellent! Most of our meals werre eaten in the dining rooms preferring the calm atmosphere to the chaos of the buffet.
With each trip though we are noticing more and more cutbacks. They stopped the welcome aboard champagne last year and this year noticed that they no longer have a live band in the theatre. The shows and music are still the same but always enjoyed the live band. The comedian is still the same guy but unfortunately so is much of his material.
One thing that we really missed this time was no past guest perks at all! No special party, no tacky pins and not even a coupon book. Come on NCL, how about some loyalty rewards? You may have lost us
