My girlfriend and I had a good time, but we had a major complaint and two minor ones. The noise factor on the ship is a continual irritation. Even if you don't choose to participate in the games, the blasts of sound forced you to be in it, whether it was in the area for future cruises or dinner. Same with the shows. The philosophy is increased volume means more enjoyment. I'm 72 with decreased hearing, but Norwegian made me glad I brought Tylenol.

I understand that equipment breaks; none of the bikes or treadmills were working properly. I suggested they put a sign up indicating that because I went to several stations to find one that worked. It was a simple request, but they didn't. The real problem was their inflexibility

Bring your own lanyard and holder so you don't have to buy a Norwegian flimsy one (ours broke).

Cabin Review

Cabin was very nice.
