Like DJP, my family (4 in a Suite) were on the 12/20 sailing out of Charleston. Time does not permit me to do a full-scale review like DJP did but I will say this. Some people are just hard too please! It is indeed hard to believe that we were on the same ship with the people who were so disappointed. We have only been on 4 cruises but I think that that is enough to base an opinion. NEGATIVES- (If you can call it that) Movement of the ship-I could feel this ship move more than any other cruise ship I have been on. So could most everyone else on board. We never got seasick from it but it was noticeable. Sofa Bed- I described to the cabin steward as 'The Mattress From Hell' and it was. This mattress had a huge indention in the middle. They brought a new mattress which we put on top of the old mattress. Problem solved. Weather-Cooler and windier than expected. I'd like to blame NCL but that would be a stretch. Daughter caught a bad cold on board--Must be NCL's fault somehow, I'm still working on how to blame them. POSTIVES- Everything else! Food was good Best crew and waitstaff of ANY cruise I've taken They went WAAAAAAAAY above the call to help our daughter who was sick. bpear says you get what you pay for. Including everything we spent $7000 on this trip and I received EXACTLY what I paid for. Some people can't seem to have a good time if it snuck up on them and bit them in the backside! Just my thoughts. AM I miss Gilberto my poolside waiter!
