We are repeat Sixthman cruisers and on this cruise the music did not disappoint, but Norwegian cruise line certainly did! The buffet food would be horrible in a public school cafeteria let alone a cruise ship. It was only a 5 day cruise but there were so many repeated menu items! The specialty dinners were just OK. In the Brazilian restaurant, we were served spoiled filet minon...it smelled like road kill. The pizza at the Italian Restaurant was essentially the same as the buffet but prepared a little more nicely - same ingredients, but better presentation, worth zero markup.

Our room was directly under The Great Outdoors and for some reason every night around 3 am the moved all the furniture around for 20 minutes and then at 6 am moved it back. WHY? The service throughout the ship lacked any warmth. Almost everyone we spoke to was brand new so we ended up being misdirected repeatedly.

From what I saw, NCL has now cut too many corners. I am not signed up to cruise with them in 2024. If they don't step it up, that hiatus might become permanent.

Cabin Review

Garden Villa

It was far from everything, the balcony was too small to enjoy much. We were right below the outdoor dining area so we had a lot of noise. There was always a faint smell of fumes from the smokestack because we were in the very rear of the ship.
