We chose this cruise only for the ports of calls. We have had less than stellar experience with NCL in the past but thought we would try them again. Only to confirm our thoughts of NCL not the choice of cruise lines we would choose again. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The port of calls were amazing. But the Star ship definitely has been neglected terribly. The food was edible but nothing to write home about. Our cabin was a bit old but clean. Rust spots on outside deck. Room steward was great. The meeting places such as the theater, all seats need to be replaced they were all slanting down towards the floor so you were sliding out of the chair constantly. Very uncomfortable and impossible to sit still for a 45 minute show. Shows were ok... again nothing to write home about. The bar tenders in all bars couldn't mix a drink properly if their life depended on it. We had the drink package for two. What a waste. The only drink your could get properly is if it was a straight shot, wine or beer in a bottle. HORRIBLE! We would not cruise with NCL again unless it was a to die for itinerary, and then we would definitely have to really decide is it worth it.
