Sail Date: Nov 2018
Cabin: Mid-Ship Balcony

Nothing do do after 11PM. Not sure if it was the itinerary or just the cruise director. Very disappointed, for instance, that the hot tubs all closed at 10. At least three times things that were supposed to be opened were closed.

Piano entertainer Justin Golan was the highlight of the trip as far as entertainment goes.

Food and service at all but one restaurant ranged from excellent (Bistro) to better-than-expected (Grand Pacific Main Dining Room). However, NCL should be embarrassed by how awful the food is at Orchid Garden. A 6 year old with a microwave and an easy bake over could have whipped up a better meal. Great decor, but terrible food.

It was fine, however, we could never get it cool enough for our tastes. Our cabin steward was amazing!
