Overall Member Rating
Not worth it...
Embarkation: New York (Manhattan)
The Food: very horrible always hamburger/French fries for lunch. Very medicore buffet. There was no nice dessert buffet or late night buffet. They had the same food with a slight twist everyday. The dining room had the same menu with slight change each day. Dessert was horrible unlike other cruise ships were the have amazing desserts. We ate at the paid teppanyaki restaurant that was good. I tried the bakery from Cake boss they called it a bakery but they only have like 5 items no thrills there. Just too much hype. I hate the Lavazza coffee on Norwegian I wish they can change it. It's watered out which is not my cup of coffee.
The ship: overcrowded, it looks worn out already, too many people the staff look angry and upset as to why should they serve you. They look tired and they don't want to be there unlike other cruise lines they are so nice attentive and go out of there way for you. Ship was disorganized and not enough pools for the amount of people. 4800 people swimming on top of each other in a pool that's smaller then my house pool.
Bermuda was beautiful!!!
I felt like I wasn't on vacation on this ship I left with excitement came back with booooooo for the breakaway!
The entertainment: the cirque show was amazing must see it's the best!!! We tried to see other shows however it was so crowded I felt like I was going to collapse from all that people so we just left. The parties on board was so crowded you couldn't enjoy it. Less
