We started in Rome & ended in Dubai. Boarding in Rome was very easy. I’m a platinum plus, so zipped right thru. Only one complaint. For some reason, every one of our umbrellas were taken out of our luggage when we boarded. ??? 3 of them? Every port was easy on & off. Oman & Fujairah were shipping ports, so not designed for ships yet. But transportation were brought to ship. Food in buffet was great for breakfast. Same old complaints.. people would eat & then just sit. This made it difficult to find seats. We just went by pool. Beautiful & not crowded. Never ate buffet for dinner. Had 2 free upgraded. Loved Cagney’s. The Brazilian steak house was just too much meat. The Main dining room was fantastic. Even had my waitress from my trip on the Jewel from the year before. Always plenty of pool seats. Shows were great. Plenty of seats. Didn’t do casino. Staff was great as always. The Captain was absolutely fantastic. He got on the air every morning. Gave us cheery information about the days events. His humor was so uplifting. The meet & greets with the top staff members were a blast. All questions were quickly answered. Only one person made it a complaint session. They immediately took her aside & got the her information to see if they could help. She apparently bought some jewelry at a store the NCL tour guide recommended and it was fake. They said the guides are independent, but would help if possible. The port information was almost correct. Some were said to have shuttles, but then, the transportation cane right to ship. The worst port for unorganized tours was in Egypt. It was a mad house to get the taxis. Going back to the ship, it was one if my best cruises ever!!!
