Sail Date: Dec 2018
Cabin: Balcony Stateroom

The price seemed good and there were three places i had never visited before. The food was cold almost every meal, had to return it many times; same food in all free restaurants (savor/taste/tropicana every day - breakfast, lunch and dinner; in specialty restaurants being presented bills containing everyone meals, except what i had eaten but being asked to give gratuities on food that i did not eat - furthermore when i had paid all gratuities before sailing, it is a real screw up. Also, having paid all taxes before sailing, being charged taxes from embarkment untill 7 o'clock following embarkment is a screw up also. asking for a not too spicy bloody caesars at the bar and being served a vodka and clamato drink and given the worcestershire and tabasco bottles and being told to do it myself and then having to ask for a peace of celery or an olive; at the lost and found counter, being told that the straps which were around my luggage upon boarding had probably been put in the garbage as they could not find it, without even looking for them. Loud music and noise every night until past midnight; being forced to listed to ncl's sales pitch. One pool for over 3900 peoples!

So do not ask me why this was the worst cruise i ever did and why i will never cruise ncl again.

Cabin Review

Balcony Stateroom

Cabin BD

Lack of space between wardrobe and bed; found things under bed that must have been there since before I got on board, therefore, vacuum was not passed under the bed - noise until past midnight every night almost; half size balcony and there is more, but not enough lines to do so.
