Wow! And not a good wow. We took our kids on this cruise to celebrate their graduations. We've all cruised extensively - 60+ cruises each, and cruised extensively with NCL - Sapphire level - including the Breakaway.

If this had been our first cruise we likely wouldn't cruise again. To say that NCL has "economized" since Covid is an understatement. Almost no entertainment on board at all. Two shows - SIX and Burn the Floor - were all that was offered on a 9 night cruise. Neither show had a full band but instead a backing track with a couple of instrumentalists playing along. The smaller venues like Headliners had Howl at the Moon dueling pianos. No comedy shows, no magicians. One vocalist from the UK with a so so performance.

You are charged for everything now and even the loyalty perks have a long list of clauses and exclusions.
