This was our 21st cruise but the first time in 20 years that we were on NCL. The food was awesome. Entertainment was great. Especially the comedian and the comedian magician. Loved the washy washy guy that sang for you when you entered the buffet. Trujillo left a lot to be desired. Very poverished and nothing there to do. The bathrooms in the room were extremely small. This was our first time at free-style dining. We were leary about not getting the personalized service like when you have assigned dining. There was no personalized service at all. Waiters just brought your food and never spoke to you. Luckily the food was very good. If you like to eat and drink, go to Mr. Sanchos all inclusive resort in Cozumel. Fifty dollars if you book on line. The ship never felt crowded. There was always room wherever we went. We enjoyed the Beatles tribute that was in one of the lounges. Houston port is very nice We parked about 50 feet from the terminal. We did not go on any excursions booked through NCL
