Great entertainment, erratic service, slow chaotic exhausting debarkation

This was my 15th cruise, 3rd with NCL. We chose this particular Spring Break cruise to join family with grandchildren. The shows we saw ("Priscella Queen of the Desert" & "Burn the Floor") were the best I've seen ...

10 day Epic

Price was a deciding factor. We overall did not like this cruise at all. Inside staterooms are awful. No space to put things and lighting was very lacking. NCL has taken lobster, shrimp cocktails and escargot off ...

We were looking forward to another cruise with NCL, since our experience on the Pearl was good. This was awful! *The embarkation was a fiasco, with the problem being more Port Canaveral's. It was a cold ...
