This was our third NCL cruise. We were extremely disappointed in the ship. It is huge and you walk forever. Mind you, if you are young and adventurous this is great, but older seniors need to be aware. The elevators cannot maintain the 4000 people on board, and people push and shove to get off and on.
Unruly children run around all hours of the night, without parental supervision. Parents expect the staff to babysit.
Jersey boys was amazing, but the other adult entertainment had a cover charge.
Dining package- cover charge at every restaurant in addition
Drink package- covers anything under $10, additional tax added when in Seattle port
Margaritaville- cover charge to eat there
Garden cafe buffet- never had enough seating available. Same food every day for breakfast and lunch
Cabin steward- greeted us on arrival and we never saw him again. We had to ask to have our room done about 3 times. Never left ice at night, but always made a "towel animal"
Elevators- not enough to handle the amount of people. Mass chaos during safety drill, port excursions, and disembarkation. No handicap accessible elevator for the scooters, wheelchairs, etc.
Plenty for the young generation of cruisers to do, however they neglected the seniors.
Investigate this. Raise before you sign on, Sometimes "bigger isn't always better"!
