We've been on many cruises, but this was our first on Norwegian. The ship was pretty and well kept, but it was very noisy. It seemed that many families may have taken kids out of school early for this cruise. There were many unsupervised teens and kids on this cruise. I love kids but feel cruise lines that designate certain areas of the ship as adult only for a period of time each day should maintain the rules. There were kids in Spice H2O during the day. There were also kids in swim diapers in the hot tubs. Our cabin steward (Kade) was awesome, as was the staff in Food Republic. We enjoyed our specialty dining experiences and loved Food Republic so much we went back 3 times. Thankfully, we had a balcony and and found the waterfront - there were few quiet areas on this ship. We've been on many large ships and knew it would be noisier than most due to the layout, but the constant high volume noise was overwhelming.
