Your Comments & Observations (OPTIONAL QUESTION)
1.Cabin stewards should change the sheets more often. On a 10 day cruise, the sheets were only changed once and we had to ask him to do it. 2. Soap dispensers need to be filled more often. I asked 3 separate stewards to fill the soap dispenser and none of them came through. Each one said they would tell our steward, but we never got any soap in the dispenser over the sink. I finally called room service for soap and did they bring it quickly. 3. Carpets in the common areas were new and clean, however, the carpets in the cabin are in desperate need of replacing. It made the whole room feel scuzzy, especially walking barefoot. 4. Couch was stained. Felt dirty. 5. Toilet seat missing one of the rubbery silencers under the seat. There was only one when there should have been 2. When you sat on the seat it was crooked and the toilet was not cleaned regularly. We had to do it ourselves. 6. Mattresses a bit worn. Can see the indentations of previous guests in the mattress. 7. NCL cabins are too small. Carnival ships have better sized cabins- much more comfortable. 8. Food was great, fantastic variety for every ethnic group. Loved all the daily fresh baked breads. It's apparent that the chefs took a lot of time preparing the menu and took pride meals. The variety was AMAZING! I would never have imagined a whole pig! Not too keen on the Indian food, though. It was served every day at the buffet; would rather have seen more Asian appetizers like dim sim or pork buns. One of the main reasons we travel with NCL. 9. Entertainment - so, so. Personally, I would dispense with the NCL singer/dancers. Rather see a variety of different performers. 10. Specialty restaurants, did not enjoy, especially the Japanese restaurant. Big disappointment. Best out of all the options was the Brazilian meat restaurant, although, the meat was a bit tough. Needs to be more tender.
