Trip Report NCL - No quality for money

Jump to last reply

On a recent 9 day cruise - Southern Carribean March 09 - I found the food quality equal to hospital or nursing home fare bland with no flavor and not much variety. The shows needed refreshing were stale. The wait staff and the room stewards were not friendly and working on autopilot. Don't ask for anything, you will get the deer in the headlight response. The ship itself was tired, carpet pulling apart at the seams, the hull need painting.
I believe the auto-tip requirement has led to staff that have no reason to respond to guest.
Also had to dodge cleaning carts in the hall at all times of the day and night. Had to always walk past dirty linen and dirty dishes in the halls. The carts were never put away!
