CONS

Ship design

The go karts laser tag and the Haven take up to much space on the ship

The burger diner under the track was empty every time we walked by

Not enough pools and deck space

The lawn chairs are set up so tight it’s hard to get on them

1 small adult pool for everyone

Tiny hot tubs

People were crammed around the pool like sardines the music was so loud you couldn’t have a conversation

The cabin was the smallest we’ve had on any cruise ship

PLUS’S

Food was great lots to choose from and good quality

Service was good

We liked the observation lounge lots of places to sit and read or just relax and look outside

Choir of Men and Kinky Boots were great

comedian was funny

Beatles cover band was good

We will definitely cruise on Norwegian again

But won’t recommend the Encore

The pool areas are the dealbreaker for us

Way to crowded
