Chose this cruise to visit Quebec and see the fall foliage. They had to cut the time down in each port because we could not sail faster than 10 knots in the St Lawrence due to Whale migration. This was our 6th cruise with NCL and our last. 27 cruises total on all different lines. So I have some experience, and this was one the cheapest quality cruises we have ever been on. I have never complained about a cruise ever. I don't mind paying for something but I do expect some value for what I pay for. NCL is now the the #1 nickel and dime cruise line. They put there hand in your pocket from the time you step on the ship till you get off. For instance if you go to the Dining room and not a "Specialty Restaurant" the only fish you will see is the fake fish Tilapea. There is no shrimp no lobster no nothing from the Ocean. There are pot pies and goulash though on the menu and rotisserie chicken. I thought that was novel. You always had to wait a 1/2 hour to get a table in the dining room, and if you tried to go to a Specialty Restaurant you could't as they were all booked, everyday. A Newcastle beer was 10 dollars, why???. A pina colada is now in the neighborhood of 12 dollars, and it's a mix. If you cruised in the 70s and 80s you would know everything was fresh made. There are no midnight buffets and O'Sheehans on the Jade has a very small menu. The entertainment on the other hand was very very good and varied. The crew was especially nice, always helpful, always a hello. Weather was great. NCL hasn't started charging for nice weather yet. All in all you make your own good time, but it will be on another cruise line for sure.

Cabin Review

Obstructed Oceanview

Cabin OK

Handicap room was small. Door on handicap room is for a weightlifter not a person with physical difficulties. The head was a good size but very difficult to enter. Never saw the cabin steward, but he or she did a a good job.
