Oh if you didn't realize the ship was extremely crowded!! It was during kids Spring Break time, so being somewhat crowded was to be expected. That said, the venues such as Headliner's comedy club and the like were ridiculous (had to be there about 30 minutes prior to get a seat). The Ship is starting to show it's age and is certainly not on the same level as some of the other newer NCL ships. Any cruise you will have a good time, and this was no exception-as we all had a very good time. The waterslides (especially the "toilet bowl" slide is great). The comedy shows and Howl at the Moon are very entertaining (if you get a seat). The kids club isn't as good as the other NCL ship we had been on (Escape) and certainly not on par with Disney's kids club. The dining was average at best, which includes the buffet, main dining (Taste) and specialty restaurants (La Cucina was below average, Moderno was very good and Teppanyaki was excellent). The pool was way too warm to be enjoyable and the chairs were hard to come by.

Haven cabin was very nice-however the Haven setup overall isn't as good as the other Haven we had been in (NCL Escape)
