Even with the Carona scare the embarkation was quick. And debarkation even quicker.
The food was good overall, my only negative would be the buffet. They have super reduced the variety at the buffet. The food at the buffet was ok, but not something that I would get excited about. The main dining rooms were good. I like the European speed of eating a meal (one and a half to two hours). It encourages conversation and a relaxed meal. So if you are looking for something faster you are going to be disappointed. The specialty restaurants are good. They are not going to be the best food you have ever eaten, but you will leave satisfied.
The cruise director, Richard, is one of the best that I have experienced. He is funny, engaging, and highly entertaining. I especially like the Cake Bake Off. The service all over the ship was great. With the exception of the bar staff. I assume that since so many people are on the drinks package that Norwegian under staffs the bars to slow the pace down.
The entertainment was good. Liked the magician and the comedian. The dance troop are standard across most cruise lines.
Cabins were smallish but good.
Loved the redesigned public rooms. They did a good job during the last dry dock.
I would recommend this cruise to most people. Drinks package tends to attract a more social crowd.
Small but very quiet. You have to use the stairs so there was not a lot of foot traffic past the room (and so the quietness).
