Excellent with a couple of downsides

Sail Date: July 2012
Destination: Europe - Western Mediterranean
Embarkation: Venice
The staff were attentive, food superb, being able to sit at the back of the ship and watch the sunset every night was amazing, the live music was fantastic, stopped to listen to jazz, big band night..those boys certainly know how to play and clearly love what they do. Thoroughly recommend this cruise, however a couple of notes of caution:

NCL need to consider that there are adults WITHOUT children and it would be nice to occasionally attend a late night evening party without kids and teens running around. There is a family white hot party and then one that starts at 10.30 in the Spinnaker Lounge. This was totally ruined for us with kids on the dance floor and teens clearly drunk and out of control with no parental control. We did complain, along with several others who all had the same idea.

Sun beds - fortunately for me by husband gets up at 8.00am no matter what so this was never a problem but for others who didn't get up til say 10.00am on a sea day they More struggled. Don't know what the answer is but it got a bit fraught At times!!

The singer by the pool, 2 hours of sheer misery!! So loud and out of tune at times!!

Venice airport is a total nightmare - it took us 2 hours to get from checking in to the plane, that's 2 hours of queuing and then straight to the gate. The plan was delayed by an hour because people couldn't get through.

These are minor gripes, overal it was a brilliant holiday and I would thoroughly recommend. Less
