NCL sail quality has dropped significantly

With the exception of 3 people, it was as if this was a training cruise. Most stood around, and several times we had to go searching for people to help. The tendering process was painful! We stood in the wind and ...

The ship is about to go to dry dock for an overhaul. It needs it. Food was lousy. Buffet was barely edible. Dining room food was usually served lukewarm though some was good. We enjoyed the included Asian ...
