I had always thought bigger was better, however this was not the case. with 4000 guest on board the elevator situation on board is dreadful. Since the ship onl;y has a 2 elevator banks and upwards of 18 floors, you are always stuck waiting for an elevator you can sqeeze into. As for activities we were only able to catch 2 shows and one of which cost an additinal 29.95 per person for and we had to sit in folding chairs...great show but i didn't think i paid to sit in a folding chair. almost everything on the boat needs to have a reseravtion, over a 7 day trip i was unable to reserve any other dinding options then what i had setup about 4 weeks prior to sailing, and was unable to get a spot to race the go karts. We love the comedy shows and once again we were unable to see any of there shows besides the one held in the large theater due to having to make a reservation. Also we had no idea that there was a reservation system from boat tenders in cabo as well. lastly my big concern, i didnt know it was ok to smoke marijuana on the ship, there had been multiple people smoking in the smoking section and my wife had discovered used aluminum foil that had been burnt and there were signs a "substance" had been smoked off of the foil. this was reported to security and im not sure if anything had ever been done about it.... But as a person who normal takes my child with, this was a little uneasy feeling, however after seeing how easy security seemed to be, i wasnt shocked by this. after multiple sailings with ncl this has by far been the worst, and i may cruise with them again, but for now i will be looking into a diffrent cruise line.

Just an OK cruise with a little drug use?
