Cruising has changed in the last 20 years. My expectations have also changed. Given todays climate the cruise was quite good. Food, fine, excursions good(overpriced, but convenient). Got the dining package and enjoyed the meals. Only irritation was a $15 "corking" fee for the "free wine" delivered to my stateroom. The wine came with strawberries and a cork screw. Ate the berries and took the wine to dinner un-opened. BANG, $15 to open a free bottle! I knew about the "corking" fee and paid it when we boarded because we took our favorite wine on board. This fee seems petty. But as I said, cruising has changed lately. Given these lower expectations, the cruise and excursions were good. Service was very good, Cabin service great. Overall- would use Norwegian again. In fact, we are planning an Alaskan cruise now in May 2017 with several of my brothers. We will use Norwegian for this cruise.
