My wife and I were on the Norway this past March. We sailed on her primarily because we wanted to see this classic ship. Although we read several comments expressing concerns about NCL ships, food, etc. , we thoroughly enjoyed the cruise. In fact, we thought it one of the best we had been on. The cruise staff were very friendly and the "atmosphere" was nice. I can't say what the other NCL ships are like (though we will will be on the "Wind" this December- having booked it while on the Norway. That alone should say something about our enjoyment of the cruise), but the Norway certainly was great. It will be interesting to see how the changeover to "freestyle" cruising affects our perceptions of NCL.
