The cruise was ok. We had a great time with friends. I feel that Norwegian has gone down hill some in their service in the restaurants and the food itself was not what it used to be. We had a great cabin and Steward. I loved the flexibility of getting on and off of the ship at any time while in Bermuda as I am a runner and went running very early in the mornings. Easy on and off. The shows were just o.k. Bermuda is absolutely beautiful. Embarkation and debarkation were very easy on this ship. I found it was generally an older crowd of people which was fine with us, and was probably due to the fact that schools in the Northeast were not out for the summer yet. Getting dinner reservations was terrible. We tried numerous times to get reservations for 9 of us at a certain time and were told no reservations were taken, only to find out on the last night when we went to dinner and asked for a table for 9 that there were reservations for the larger tables. We had to tell the hostess that we were denied reservations the whole week and that we couldn't get a table because of reservations was just uncalled for. Finally, a "cancellation" jut happened to come in while we were standing there. Very frustrating. One of the nights we were told no was our friend's birthday we just all wanted to be together. Oh well live and learn
