This is our second cruise with NCL because the first one pre-pandemic was great. WOW were we in for a shock! The food was cold and tasteless. Some of the supposedly free specialty dining was closed the entire time. No reservations available for the ones that were open, even though we did it a month in advance of the cruise. There was only one sit down dining room that was open and only for dinner (good luck getting a table). The buffet was only open for short hours, so if you wanted to sleep in or see a show, forget about eating. The food was bad anyways. The frozen pizza and the beef hot dogs were good.

I think the stabilizers on the ship were broken. We rocked so hard people were tripping over their own feet and we heard about all the people in their cabins because of the seasickness. They even canceled a port of call because the little ship couldn’t make it in the waves.

The entertainment was lacking. There was one good show, Icons. It was very well done. Other than that, it was the same bad shows and boring activities.

Cabin Review

The cabin was nice. We had a two bedroom suite.
