I had my first cruise with NCL on the Sun back in November and loved it. Some of their excursions leave something to be desired, but other than that, I loved everything else. I think some people just appreciate what some lines have better than others and perhaps should stick to those lines. It's not really a bad reflection of the cruise line... it just does not fit your needs. I like your attitude about things and I hope you'll have a better time next cruise.
