The ship - beautiful, crew and service - great. We had a group of 24 adults. Our 10th NCL cruise. 13 smokers. 2 outside bar areas at which to smoke, one was closed for several nights for private affairs and the other ran out of our scotch for 4 days. Our room was on the 15 deck under one of the dinning rooms and at night the above noise was very bothersome. The two "individual" tube slides were found to be very "DANGEROUS". Two of our group were stuck in the tube at the same time and incurred injuries. One person was wheel chair bound for the remaining cruise while the other had back,shoulder and arm injuries. The water had stopped running and the green light indicated ok to send the next person down into the tube. With no-one at the exit to signal the operator that they came out, with the green light back on, the third person was getting into the tube to be sent when WE told the operator no one had exited, please stop, he finally heard their screams. 11th NCL cruise???????

Our 4th ship at Moderno's was a big food disappointment. No free lobster tails in the main dinning rooms. I must say the service and personnel - excellent.

Very nice layout in the cabin and attendants were great.

Karaoke one hour / night for 4,000 passengers - really ! Water slides need someone at the exit to indicate that it's clear to send the next person. The shows were very entertaining, " the Million Dollar Quartet" great. The casino - filthy , need more cleaning people. Need more out-side smoking areas. The small jogging track - a joke. Daily games and activities - very good.

Good but not exciting excursions. A tubing excursion is always enjoyable.

We're platinum ncl members - not feeling the love anymore. The Caribbean Itineraries are very repetitive,my group (24),are repeating cruisers getting bigger every cruise, give us something new for our next cruise. The new photo gallery design is commendable. The free drink package - great, great addition. Can not beat the free style dinning.
