Enjoyed all of the music everywhere-nice touch. GREAT comedy shows, top notch stand up professionals, and plenty of performances! Rowan, the washy-washy singer was delightful. Sadly, the quality of the food in the cafe and the main dining rooms really plummeted. We could be wrong, but it sure tastes like many or all of the entree's, especially the FISH was pre-cooked and then re-heated. Very dry and salty, all of it. Not one good fish dish the entire trip and NO lobster ever. The desserts tasted like they were full of preservatives too, like they were also pre-made, frozen, thawed then served. They just didn't have that fresh flavor, more like Jewel bakery quality. We thought that the cruise directors did a great job with all of the activities and everyone around the ship was so nice. Our balcony room felt spacious. The room steward was super. Only thing was that the carpet in our cabin was quite dirty, looked like it hadn't been cleaned in a very long time. Wished that there was options for late night dining. Lots of things still going on late into the eve, but the cafe shuts down on some nights around 11:00 and the only option is O'Sheehans-a sit down place with a long line down the halls, and an extremely long wait, or room service at an extra fee. Come on NCL, if you are going to offer late night entertainment, keep the cafe at least partially open. Embarkation & dis-embarkation were very smooth!

Great staff/service. Extremely LARGE ship Food quality plummeted

Plenty of storage and space. Could use a vanity drawer in/at the desk area to catch odds and ends.
