Sounds like my Norwegian Majesty cruise! And the mystery meat they served on Thanksgiving day must have been one of those "seagulls"! Mgram

There's a Beater, in the front of the Show Lounge, banging a drum and saying, "Stroke....stroke....stroke...."

The maitre d' is 6'4" and weighs about 110 pounds....

The only two songs the band plays are "My Heart Will Go On," and "There's Got To be A Morning After."

The Captain's morning announcements begin, "Good morning, and welcome aboard the Andrea Doria...I mean the s/s.................."

At the napkin folding demonstration, they show you how to fold a triangle...

I want to appologize for not using good judgement in my post above. I should not have been so specific as to the ship....I did not stop to think that it would alarm someone that has already booked or was thinking about booking....as has been pointed out to me (very nicely) in an email. I certainly did not mean to cause concern...just an attempt at humor...a failed attempt.

I will say that the food was not up to our expectations from the great things that we heard about NCL and we were disappointed. It could have been a bad week...other lines have bad weeks, too. I will give them high marks for veal preparation....not an easy task...so it was hard to understand why the rest of the food was only mediocre.

This did not ruin our cruise...it was just a pothole in the road. Mgram

The captain announces, "I have some bad news and some really bad news.."

Movies shown continuously are Titanic, Jaws, Moby Dick and other similar movies.

Crew have life jackets on, "just in case."

Towel animals all look like whales and sharks.

Your seat cushion at the dining room table also serves as your personal flotation device.........
