This ship is just not comfortable. Firstly our outside cabin was very small and required the double bed to be separated to have any room at all. Also there was no comfortable lounge in the cabin as there usually is, instead there was a hard backed vinyl chair. You had to be quite agile to manage the constricted toilet. In summary too small and uncomfortable. Secondly the ship has no inside lounge areas to sit in comfort and just read a book. Such areas were ripped out and replaced with specialty restaurants and super expensive accommodation. Result is a very crowded feeling in the ship whenever the weather drives people indoors. The entertainment overall was second rate and front desk service indifferent. The only real positive on this ship was the food and restaurants, especially the Aqua and O'Sheehans bar. Finally they made a mistake with our final account which we are now told will take at least 6 weeks to coorect. We would not go with NCL again.

Very disappointed with this ship
