Convenient, reputable and reasonably priced. NCL for the most part delivered on our expectations with only a couple of exceptions. Pools were too small and the adult pool was 5.5 to 6.5 feet which made casual relaxation uncomfortable. We stayed in the over crowded kids pool which was ignored by NCL with no life guard or presence. Most of the NCL staff was pleasant and accommodating however the guest services could use a refresher course on service (there were two individuals who saved the day but unfortunately I can’t remember their names). The entertainment was average with the exception of the finale (Earth) The food was plentiful, chose the dining rooms Venetian and Acqua to make it easier to serve our group of 8 (4 adults and 4 children ages 1 to 9). Getting tables in the main dining area Garden Cafe during the prime time was difficult. La Cucina and Cagney were excellent restaurants as well as Tappneki? The hibachi restaurant. The shore excursions met our expectations. We would highly recommend getting a cabana on Grand Cae. Overall a good experience
