A nice transatlantic cruise. I will cut NCL some slack as I know cruising is just resuming and things are still pretty unsettled. Besides we missed a port (Azores) due to bad weather so we had (too) many sea days which became quite monotonous.
We've taken a repositioning cruise on NCL twice before, so I can compare to previous years. My main complaint is that the food was definitely worse than in previous years. There was one bright exception -- the steak in Cagney's was great -- but otherwise the food was meah. No distinction. No taste. Even the Indian food which we have enjoyed on previous sailings was pretty unremarkable (read, awful). And the Executive Chief was from India, go figure!
I got the impression that some of the food had been sitting in the freezer since the C-19 lockdowns and made it to the table just now -- lacking freshness, and often downright stale.
Weird ship design. Rust in our balcony. (Not a good sign.) Our cabin attendant (Jevan from Mauritius) was a delight and very thorough though so that helped make up for the 1980's feeling in the cabin design.
