Overall, very good transatlantic cruise, seas were light to moderate and the weather was generally in the 70s. Embarkation and debarking were both quick and smooth. Would like to congratulate NCL for providing a bridge instructor and director for the sea days, Cheryl was excellent. Also NCL provided a pickle ball court for two hours on most sea days, good fun, thanks to Lisa and Mark. Entertainment was generally very good, the broadway shows were professionally done and very good. The duelling pianos were good as were several of the bands. Food was good for dinner at the main restaurants, however lunch at the buffet did not get any praise as was generally lukewarm at best and too salty and not tasty. The one major problem at the buffet was a lack of seating especially if the weather was not good enough to eat outside.Speciality restaurants were generally excellent, Cagney’s and Bistro were our best. We had the beverage package and always had excellent service, although the pool bar got very busy mid afternoons. Our room steward, Joel, was excellent and very responsive. Cabin layout was poor and this has been commented on many times. We have booked this cruise again for next year.
