Way overcrowded, bad use of space on the ship. You have to be on the sun deck by 7am to maybe get a chair, 2 very small pools, 1 kids, 1 adult.. 4 very tiny hot tubs. Way too many children, 1 hour wait for water slides most of the time. The gym is way, way too small and lacks equipment. Room, food, restaurants, entertainment were all good. Make any RSVPs for spa, excursions, go kart etc before you get on the ship. It will be sold out by the time you get on the ship. Watch out for the drink package, be sure to ask when getting a drink if what you want is extra charge or not. They don't let you know then it's on your bill. Starbucks on board and good service. NCL blew it on this ship, bad design/layout, not such a stable ride either due what I am told is a German built ship that lacks the stabllizers on other ships.

No pool, hot tub, sundeck, gym space
