Additional details

Sail Date: Jan 2017
Cabin: Mid-Ship Balcony

We chose this cruise because of the itinerary. Vietnam, Thailand, Indonesia, and Australia were areas we were very interested in seeing. NCL had problems early December but would not cancel cruises in order to fix the problem instead they failed to notify passengers of loss of ports before we entered the terminal to board ship. Problems increased as we sailed. After only 3 ports they had additional problems with ship and they canceled 3 more ports. So they had canceled 5 of 10 ports. Their compensation was $500 per person for up to 2 people in a cabin and 1/2 next cruise within 12 months. This was wrong.

Dining was okay but have had better. Crew and staff did their best considering the angry passengers. Entertainment was okay. Our cabin, balcony on deck 10 was smallest we have had in quite a while.

Did not trust the ships seaworthiness.
