I think more needs to be made on how NCL is compaired to Royal Caribbean. There are less fees on RCCL and their intertainment is outstanding! The are Ice shows, a Royal Promenade, with Royal Mardi Gras Parades, Great shows, etc., etc. Overal for the money, I think RCCL is a great value over NCL; plus on the whole it's ships far outshine (hear that Epic!!) anything in NCL's fleet.
