I have been on cruises before with Carnival Cruise Lines. This was the first NCL. All I have to say is it was the worst vacation experience I have ever had and to date, I have discouraged 18 people that I know from ever going on a Norwegian Cruise. I will continue to discourage everyone I know from cruising with NCL. Do not waste your money with a company that could care less if you have a clean room, if your excursions are on time, or if you have something edible to eat.
