Sail Date: Nov 2018
Cabin: Balcony

We choose this cruise because the price was cheap (33 % off money on pair ) . When we get on the ship we were terefy about the price of Beer and the wine . They charged us 15 $ for opening my bottle of wine . ( i did not bring it to dinning room ) it was a twist cap and i opened by my self . I try the talk with the Hotel Director but he was too busy whit his family on the ship.

The guest countor doesnt give us service . The meat at the dinningroom was'nt hot . You can buy Bucket of beer only before the cruise otherwise you cant by it on the ship during the cruise .How can we know how many alcool we will drink on the cruise . Everything taste salt . The floor personnal was very great ( may be thats why NCL still in business ) I send a email to NCL service and i never get answer back . People are somking in the casino and on them balcony so you will smell it if you are near them .We did a lot of cruise with the other cie and we will go back whit Princess or Holland America and other one but never go back with NCL

Sorry for my english because i do not speak english as well
