Trip Details
  • Sail Date: Oct 2018
  • Destination: the Eastern Caribbean
  • Cabin Type: Inside Stateroom

I have been on 20 cruises not a novice. I was a big fan of NCL. My last 5 cruises were wit them. I must say there were no surprises, nothing out of the box and the cruise was boring

I am no prude but I must sat The cruise staff over did the adult humor. passengers were spurred on by staff to the point their were videos of them having simulated sex. it became very ugly and vulgar.


The shows were average. Why they continue to hire such poor lead singers is beyond ,me.


The inclusive sit down restaurants did not vary their menus the entire week

This pushes you into eating at the buffet or a cover charge venue. (all about the $)

Food at the buffet was tasteless and dry

DRINKS: Over charged $12 a drink with tip. They barely fill your glass. every thin is measured to a science.

GRATUITIES : No $14.50 a day and for these charges their staff does not deserve it. Rude and Surly is the best description

STAFF: Were surly and not at all engaging. I fact some of them were downright rude. My room steward did not even clean or make my bed that last 2 days of the cruise. He simply seemed to not be bothered by such. As if it was my job not his.

Not going on any cruise anytime soon again. Used to be lots a bang for your buck but now it appears it is a poor quality for the cost.
