Itinerary changes and some NCL personnel spoiled the trip

Sail Date: Sep 2019
Cabin: Family Inside

We selected this cruise for the ports and ended up missing Montenegro and Argostoli. Montenegro was missed due to changes by the Port Authority in Venice. Venice now staggers the coming and going of all cruise ship. NCL was given the LAST leaving time out of Venice so this meant we had to miss Montenegro. Argostoli was missed (we were told) due to the weather however we never experienced any bad weather on the ship. We must have been far from the bad weather in Argostoli? We were cut short on our last stop in Dubrovnik and had to get back on board earlier than originally planned. Why? We were told because NCL was given the FIRST time to be back in port by the Venice Port Authority. Does this make sense? Give the ship with the LAST leaving time the EARLIEST time to be back???

The ship was fine. Clean and well maintained.

The food was average. The menu is so boring. We don't do buffets and the service is very slow in all of the sit down restaurants. Be prepared to be ignored.
