Sail Date: Nov 2019
Cabin: Mid-Ship Balcony

I have had 110+ nights cruising and this was my first time sailing with NCL and by far the worst experience. Ship was not kept clean, public bathrooms were always filthy. Food was some of the worst I have ever had cruising. Staterooms were lacking in comfort....tiny tv...only a single electrical outlet (in this day and age when we all have smart phones, smart watches, ipads and laptops that need to be recharged, that was really upsetting) will want to bring a power strip. Do not waste your money eating in the a la carte restaurants....over priced, terrible service and poor quality in food. If you are a non smoker, I recommend staying away from Deck 6 all together...between the Cigar smoking room and the casino we could not ever enjoy any of the activities in the Gatsby Lounge. Was surprised to be told there was not at least one hot tub open 24/7....would have enjoyed a soak after dancing at 11:30pm.
