First time on NCL. If not for the staff and food this would have been a two star review. First - shout out to the friendly and professional bartenders. Dr. Lawrence at the Pour House and pool bar - world class! Christian at the Whiskey Bar and all the other bartenders are top shelf. The “coffee with love women” in the breakfast buffet area were awesome as were the “washy washy“ folks. Fun breakfast experience. Food not bad overall - really really good in specialty dining restaurants. Otherwise disorganized cruise, nothing special about the ship, on line services lacking, after hours food non-existent. The passengers were diverse but there were a lot who just drank from early AM until late night, sloppy and some angry drunks who just ruined the cruise vibe for me. I am sad that I won’t be seeing the crew again but would not consider a second cruise on this ship. The cost was really very high in relation to other better overall cruises we’ve been on.

Also forgot a shout out to Benedict at the Whiskey Bar for keeping my Old Fashioned not too sweet and for the entertainment with the drinks!
