The only good thing about Norwegian were the excursions, which you can get through other cruises too. Most of my interactions with staff were unhelpful at best and downright rude at worst. There seems to be a very prevalent "not my job" mentality where staff will go out of their way to avoid helping you or answering your questions. The rare few crew members who are actually pleasant are overworked to the point you'll only see them once or twice on your trip. The rooms are tiny and cramped, and if you're tall forget about taking a decent shower. Rooms are services at least 3 times a day, which can be overwhelming and inconvenient when you're trying to relax or rest up after an excursion. It's also a huge inconvenience to have to use a room key in order to use the lights. The shows on the ship are fantastic, I will give them that. If you're unfortunate enough to be on a Norwegian cruise make sure to check those out! Other than the shows though there isn't much to do on the ship except eat and go to the casino. Save your money, cruise elsewhere.
