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 ...

Good cruise, a few small niggles, nothing major

Embarkation was great, we were on the ship 5 minutes after entering the terminal. The refurbished part of the ship is great, it’s a shame they didn’t update the staterooms. Ours was quite shabby with stained ...
