This should have been our trip of a lifetime, my retirement gift.
Despite being informed of most port closures, NCL took the decision to set sail. From day 1 the cruise went downhill - despite having just come out of dry dock following a 100million dollar refurbishment, the ship had maintenance issues. Ceilings falling in, public toilets not finished, stateroom bathroom facilities missing to name a few.
This was advertised as a 20 night luxury cruise - what a joke!! The ship was under provisioned from the onset having left full containers in UAE. After day 4 we never set foot on dry ground until we reached Cape Town, 16 days later during which we ran out of vital food and drink.
