For our 10th cruise, we decided to try a different cruise company after previously sailing with P and O, Princess Cruises and Royal Carribean. After reading mixed reviews we were a little hesitant about the booking but we are so glad we booked the cruise. Food - by far the best food we have had on a cruise liner. Plentiful, tasty and amazing service by happy waiters. We loved not having to eat dinner at a certain time as we have had to do with most other liners. There was also no real dress code it was very relaxed but the option was there to where something smarter if you wished. Previously we have often struggled to have a table for 2 but even though the ship was full we had a table each evening for 2 often by the window. We could also use the free at sea drinks package in the dining room which was an added bonus. Drink - we paid very little for the free st sea package which included premium alcoholic drinks. Most was covered by the package which included whiskeys rum barcadi as well as wine and lager. Service- fantastic staff. The overall majority couldnt do enough for you. As the ship is smaller it was lovely to get to know the staff. It added a personal touch. Entertainment- not as much entertainment as other ships but we didnt feel we needed it as we had a stop each day and the drinks package. There were quizzes happening daily and shows in the theatre. Ship - I agree with the comments that some not all areas of the ship are a little dated but it didnt bother us. Cabin - we stayed in an indoor cabin that was larger than most other inside cabins we stayed in previously. Overall.....I'd give this cruise 10 out of 10. Lovely to see the staff so happy, drinks package added bonus at low cost and the best food we have had on a cruise to date. Well done NCL we will be returning.

10th cruise.... by far the best for so many reasons.....
