First day eating at o'sheehans

I was very reluctant to cruise considering the ongoing pandemic. When I got the invitation from NCL that they are now open for sailing, I was reluctant for my health and the probability of being exposed to Covid.

I am a NCL Latitude Member.I have sailed on several occasions to different places, not to mention, in different Norwegian cruise ships. The one factor that convinced me to go ,was my past experiences with them. I am thankful , I made the choice to go. The covid precautions that were implemented made me feel safe. All the amenities and restaurants were constantly cleaned and monitored. The staff were always wearing their masks and reminding people to sanitize their hands. Aside from keeping up with health codes, the staff were very professional, friendly, and fun as they always have been. The daily events were very inclusive and enjoyable. The shows were entertaining! Everyday there was something to do and my day felt very fulfilling.

I would like to make a special mention that truly made me believe that NCL has the best people working for them. Romnick (employee #4865) my room steward found my engagement ring which I frantically searched for and thought I lost. A few days later my daughter lost her gold earring and again it was found by Romnick. I want to thank him for his honesty. Thank you NCL for another amazing, memory filled, vacation. See you soon!
