Worst cruise we've ever been on!

Due to having to use tenders, one port was canceled. At the other two, it took hours to re-board. The cruise director did a TERRIBLE job of communicating in Cozumel. Yes, there were a lot of ships which I understand ...

The room assignment was a bait and switch

The timing worked out for this cruise as we were planning to be in Orlando at this time and this cruise was leaving Port Canaveral. Also, we had never taken an NCL cruise so after over 20 cruises on five other lines ...

Waste of money

The ship was clean the cabins were nice but limited storage for your clothes. The food was sub par and you were served the same thing everyday unless you paid extra in the specialty restaurants. I couldn't wait ...

Constantly bombarded by salespeople & no compensation

While I understand why we missed Cozumel (and agree with the decision the weather was dangerous) absolutely NOTHING was done to make up for this fact. The "additional activities" were the same from the day before ...
