Getting on and off the boat was a breeze as was the shore trips. Way too much smoke in the casino, none smokers were out of luck to play any games unless you wanted to smell like an ashtray after.The staff were all friendly and we felt like they were really glad to help not just getting paid to do so.Maybe a little more variety in the onboard activities on the sea days. The buffet was terrible! Not one item of food from soup to nuts was hot, ever! We ended up having to skip the buffet all together and just go with the restaurants and when we went to the top of the line French restaurant there was a used rubber glove in our food. How bad is that!!!!. Will not use NCL ever again, no matter how many "Free at Seas" they have! Thank you very much Daniel Frederick Strano
