We took a 10 day cruise to the Caribbean on January 15, 2012 which stopped at Samana DR, Tortola,St. Martin, Antigua, Barbados, St, Kitts.
The food was bad. There wasn't much options. Our anniversary cake tasted like refrigerator. The appetizers were the same at both the Venetian and the Aqua Restaurant. Service in the Venetian was bad. It took them forever to get our order, bring our food, refill our water. And the food wasn't great! My husband has never complained of a lobster until this cruise.
Our room was soooo noisy. It literally cracked all night. All my previous cruises have been pretty much quiet but this one was out of control. The bathroom door would open along with the cabinets. One night I woke up from all the noise because there was something banging outside my window. I had to call the front desk to ask what was going on. Someone came to my room to hear what I was complaining about and told me all the cracking was just part of the room! At that moment I thought "I don't know how I am going to survive another 7 days here"! Our room steward was rude. The first day I nicely asked him to change our duvet cause there was a big yellow stain in it, the size of a large plate. Instead of saying, yes or whatever he started making excuses about what the stains were. One day he didn't even do our bed. I spoke to many of the people on our ship and they were all frustrated with the ship. I had heard that NCL was a good line to cruise but then now talking to the many people on the ship they all mentioned that it has deteriorated so much from what it once were.
