The good….Cruise director, senior staff and entertainment were excellent. We especially liked the cruise director Jamie, as well as the comedian, Simon Cotter. Jamie kept everyone engaged in activities, and Simon kept everyone laughing throughout the ship non stop. Simon was very personable and engaged in conversation everywhere we ran into him. The bar tenders were always hustling and made some good tasting cocktails..

The not so good….. Norwegian seems to nickel and dime you with additional expenses, however, maybe all cruise lines have begun doing that. For 2023, prices appeared to have jumped significantly for drinks, as well as behind the scenes. Our main hangout at night was Gatsbys, which had limited seating and was right next to the smoking section, so when the doors opened, we were all blasted with smoke. The food was decent but half way through the cruise, I was tired of the variety.
