Tired ship

Sail Date: January 2014
Destination: Panama Canal & Central America
Embarkation: Miami
Had to wait several hours to board as ship was being sanitized after voyage where passengers had Norovirus. New passengers were not allowed to touch the food or drinks. Had a terrible cabin with view almost totally obstructed (not partially obstructed) . Theatre seats were awful and left one with a sore tush at end of performance. Food in dining rooms was bland. Several days where the boat rocked excessively. Cabin had a tender outside which blocked view and workmen were constantly passing by our window so we were forced to keep blinds closed. Tender launching on last port visit was really noisy and very early in the a.m. Also light outside lit up the room so sleeping was difficult.

Staff was exceptionally pleasant and very helpful but guests lined up in both directions to get food and drinks.

We took several shore excursions offered by the ship and the last 3 were awful (Huatulco, Puerto Vallarta and Cabo San Lucas). The guides started their description before More everyone arrived, we couldn't hear them, it was difficult to understand them, etc.

No more NCL. Less

Cabin review: 8582

Cabin was quite small and had to remember to duck or hit the hide-a-bed.
