Birthday Cake, and it was good !

The food was the worst on any crusie we have ever taken, i.e. Eggs Benedict in Main dining room were hard bolied with no canadian bacon on bread and very little hollandase, plus ti took an hour to be served. Pancakes in the Garden cafe were stone cold, and the scrambled eggs looked like soup. The French Onion soup was slightly colored water with cheese you could not cut or bite, just awful. Now the pan fried flounder and steaks were consistantly good and great ceaser salad. We ate in 4 specialty restaurants, all good, the best being Le Bistro. We chose this cruise because of the ports, and excursions in Quebec City country side and Prince Edward Island were great. Halifax and Sydney NS were a dissapointment ! Halifax stores on the boardwalk were closed up for the season already, and in Sydney not much to see in the City. We were shorted time in Quebec and Prince Edward because the ship had to slow up due to whales in the shipping lanes. Now whales migrate about the same time every year and NCL doesn't know this ??? Come on. After over 60 cruises, this will be rated as one of the worst, and I was the one pushing for NCL over HAL and RCL. The entertainment and bands were really good and NCL always has the best parties, but hard to overcome bad food, shorted time, and not good ports of call.

Cabin Review

Balcony

Cabin BC

Very nice and adequate room and storage, but I hate those hangers on NCL, what a task to hit the little hole to set the hanger.

Port Reviews

Halifax

All the shops and activities were closed already for the season, and thank God the Maritime Museum was open and excellent.

New York (Manhattan)

It took almost 2 hours for the Embarkation process. NCL and/or the port authority need more workers there. Second worst embarkation we have ever had after 60 cruises.

Sydney (Nova Scotia)

There are a few places of interest you may walk to in the city, but overall we were disappointed. The tours offered were limited also.
