The best part of cruise was the easy check in process but later learned it was because the ship was empty and sailed from Baltimore. Now for the bad, the food is absolutely terrible! The pizza only available for 3 hours each day (12pm-3pm) The buffet choices were few and slacking. The best meal we had was at Cagney's Steakhouse. Bill was $202 but luckily we had 2 free meals with cruise package. We would have paid for additional nights but there were no reservations available. We were to have 7 different ports and supposedly due to weather, we had 4 ports. We didn't go to St John, Antigua, St Maarten or Great Stirrup Cay. Instead we circled out at sea ( that's what Guest Services told us) and docked in Nassau for 2 days. I understand you can't predict the weather but at least offer something besides being stuck on a boat longer than destinations! Very few shows, mostly lounge singers. The Shore Excursions worker was not knowledgeable when trying to book a beach excursion. After asking for a BEACH excursion, we got a walking tour of the city for 3 hours and then one hour beach time. After the first 15 minutes of realizing this, we left the excursion and walked back to the ship. Went to Guest Services and told them our experience and the lady didn't seem to care. A few days later, I noticed bleach on my swimsuit. I went to Guest Services again and they wanted my swimsuit to send to laundry to remove white spots since they don't use Clorox. A few hours later, the Laundry supervisor brought back my swimsuit and said they couldn't remove the white spots so I needed to go to Guest Services and sign paperwork. They did credit my account $30. We paid LOTS of money for this cruise because of the different ports and not Nassau (funny that's where we were stuck for 2 days). When it was time disembark, we stood outside and waited over an hour for our bus transportation to airport. The bus driver said Norwegian was to blame for delay and some on the bus barely made their flights. We paid Norwegian for this transportation! I do not recommend Norwegian- they are very lack luster, unfriendly and way overpriced! I have been on several different cruise lines and this was definitely bottom of list. Not exactly how I imagined celebrating a 25th Anniversary cruise. I will be booking another cruise soon but not a Norwegian cruise
