Chose this cruise because of the places visited

Found the food and service on the ship to be poor the only "wow " meal we had was a paid meal in the French Bistro , even then this must be the only french bistro that did not have French wine available !!!

Disembarking at ports was a shambles in particular in Hong Kong where hours were spent waiting to go ashore only to find only one half hourly shuttle bus ( to a shopping centre ) was available.

Very little information was given as to transport etc on shore .

The balcony cabin was excellent on deck 9

The nightly entertainment was also excellent

the drinks prices would have been reasonable if not for the 20% surcharge on every drink

The drinks packages were far too expensive considering how much time was spent onshore

It was a pity that the ship overall wasn't as good

Front of house staff seemed disinterested and were little help once you got to the front of the incessant queues

Perhaps others will sail with NCL again but not me
