This was a surprise birthday cruise for a friend and we were part of the surprise Itinerary was terrific- Greek isles, Malta and two stops in Italy What we didn’t like: Nickel and dime u for everything and NOT eco friendly. Make a big deal that they have eliminated use of straws to limit plastics use, but forced u to buy their bottled water. Signs everywhere not to use your own water bottles. Despicable. Don’t patronize us by suggesting it’s for health reasons. Cash grab was all it was and environmentally irresponsible Staff tired looking. When we boarded the ship they were less than enthusiastic to have us come aboard. Turns out they don’t get days off, just a few hours at a time. It shows Food good. Not spectacular Gym v v v small. Some equipment not functioning. Little space to do free weights. V limited classes and at awkward times Handrails dirty and sticky. Leave u with icky feeling Loved our room steward and select staff At ports very minimalistic in any amenities. Ie zero. One of the ports had a welcome, water, towels, near the end of cruise. Might have been nice to be consistent On board stores v limited and uninteresting Liked sushi restaurant, Italian restauurant - staff great there Washy washy lady was awesome - unstoppably cheery and upbeat Room was OK. Only one outlet Hair dryer from the previous century Would think carefully whether to do Norwegian again. Not impressed

Great itinerary, ship disappointing

This was a surprise birthday cruise for a friend and we were part of the surprise

Itinerary was terrific- Greek isles, Malta and two stops in Italy

What we didn’t like:

Nickel and dime u for everything and NOT eco friendly. Make a big deal that they have eliminated use of straws to limit plastics use, but forced u to buy their bottled water. Signs everywhere not to use your own water bottles. Despicable. Don’t patronize us by suggesting it’s for health reasons. Cash grab was all it was and environmentally irresponsible
