It was a good cruise, restful, NCL is a class act, but they've been doing it a lot longer than the others! HAPPENINGS: We had a few problems on board, a main water line broke above the main dining hall, causing a flood into the stairwells and hallways, it closed the main hall for about 4 days, while they dried it out. We understood a drain line out of the pool in H20 up above the restaurant ruptured... We had a passenger get sick, and we had to leave our course and stop in Bermuda to let him and his family off the ship. The ship was basically empty, only 2000 cruisers, they told us that a large group canceled at last minute, but I do believe it was heavily booked from the beginning. Just the same, we were able to upgrade for $150 to a mini suite. We had some rough weather on the crossing, 37 knot winds and 16 ft. seas, but that can happen on any cruise, we enjoyed the rocking and rolling! FOOD: The food, as always was real good, especially Le-Bistro, just magnifico... Service as usual on NCL was good! ENTERTAINMENT: Slam Allen in FAT CATS LOUNGE, was just fantastic, a really great Jazz Group! We had a real good harmonizing group that sang some MOTOWN, and a group of 4 fiddle players that were just fantastic!
