Although the cruise after the one we took will be the Sea's last I am sure NCL will replace it with an even better ship and crew if that is even possible. I must address one review I read from 12.25.2004. This person must have been on a completely different ship that I was!

I found the crew to be cheerful at all times and the food was first rate. The rooms were small, but I expected that. I couldn't help but notice that this ship was constantly being polished and preened by an apparently happy crew.

The food was excellent as was the service. I don't recall standing in line for more than a few minutes, and once seated our group was treated with as professional wait staff as I have ever had the pleasure to be served by.

The few complaints I might have are not worth mentioning, but in the interest of fairness I will:
There was a lot of merchandising going on at times and I found this tiring after awhile.
The tendered excursions left a little to be desired.

I am not a fan of the mandatory 10%"Gratuity". If you HAVE to pay it, then it is a FEE.

We did the Express Disembarkation which had us in our car and on the road by 8:06am!!!
My wife and I will definitely do a return cruise with NCL in the near future!!!
