We had a great time. Cruise ship was clean, service was exceptional, food was very good. Somehow I wish a cruiseline would ban smoking in the casino. I lost $20 in the slot machines and I had to get out of there..the smoke was so thick. Even after you leave, your hair and clothes reak of smoke. Not good when you're living out of a suitcase and re-wearing some items of clothing. In my opinion, keep all smokers outside on the back of the ship, or in special ventilated smoking areas, but don't make us share common areas. Disney does it right by eliminating the casino and making the rooms bigger.
I slipped in the bathroom due to sunscreen on the bottom of my slippers and suffered an unsightly bruise from my shoulder to the backside of my elbow..nice when you plan on wearing bathing suits, tank tops and sundresses (this was my fault..not NCL) The ships medical staff did treat my husband very well when he came down with either Norovirus or food poisoning. After a VERY long night in the restroom, we saw the ships nurse who gave him an injection for the nausea and vomiting, pills for diarrhea, a bottle of Powerade and instructions on diet ( all free of charge) ...he was then quarantined to the room for the remainder of the cruise. Thank goodness it was only our last day at sea! They called every 2 hours to check on him (or to make sure he was in his room?). When you're quarantined to the room, you realize how awful the tv selections really are. A news channel, one old movie channel and reruns of ship infomercials, one commercial about the importance of "wash your hands...wash your hands!" ( ironic with a sick man in the room who washed his hands fastidiously)..and 5 very good channels with American tv shows, but were in Spanish..we don't speak Spanish. Princess Cruises at least had great reruns of "The Love Boat!"
Our room steward was amazing..wait staff at dinner were efficient and entertaining. I love how they remember your name and your drink preferences every night! We had some bad luck on this cruise but we wouldn't hesitate to cruise with RC again!
