This was the worst cruise we have been on, will never travel Norwegian again. Up until Cork Ireland it was good from then on it just got worse. Went through hurricane Pablo and subtropical storm Rebeka, missed a port hence instead of two days at sea a day in port that we missed then four days at sea it became seven days at sea. They took this large ship and made everything in it smaller from rooms to finding a quiet place to read, library is a joke no space to sit to read. People went to margarita ville the service was so terrible it ended up to be complimentary because orders were all wrong coming from the kitchen. The stop in Miami was a joke spent all our time in immigration, some people sat in terminal for five hours before being allowed to go back on ship. We ran out of some food before and after picking up supplies, some of the waiters etc did not know what they were to do as if they had never done this before. While dining in the main dining room the music for dinner was so loud you couldn’t hear what the person across the table was saying so we don’t call this dinner music. Captain kept apologizing for the cruise all the way up to when we disembarked in New Orleans. On disembarkment people were looking for their suitcases come to find out they were still on board ship and had never been taken off which made for huge delays leaving.
