Nobody comes on here to write intentional negative reviews ( I hope) . As a cruiser of 30 vacations with different companies I feel I must comment on the short comings of the Prima. Beautiful new ship , great cabins, really good food, ( post covid this is not true of all cruise lines!) But the design of the ship is extremely poor, from the lack of seating on all public decks - observation lounge, atrium, buffet. The atrium has no dance floor, the live music is under the 7th floor balcony, so impossible to see from higher decks and the bar is next to live music! It would appear that NCL are employing less staff , hardly any bar waiter service, the bars with one member of staff before 6.00pm. NCL cut out all the silly gimmicks re go cart track, electric dart boards and digital putting.

The theatre was under used, other NCL ships had great shows every night, infact the best night was when all the musicians/singers from around the ship got together in the theatre, what a blast, more of that please.

Cabin Review
