I don't know if this question has already been posted, but I'm taking a chance and hoping I won't bother anyone.
My mom and I are cruising every year and we usually choose Holland America for the food and older crown(easier access to lounger on sun deck and really quiet ships). I am a student and I need peace and quiet because, yes, I do study on the sun deck
However, itineraries for 2015 aren't as interesting for us.
We usually choose a cruise leaving from somewhere in Florida but we thought we could try New Orleans.
We saw that Carnival and Norwegian both offer a cruise from that port. My main concern is the noise level. I know Carnival is known to be family friendly. I don't know how it is for NCL though.
so that is it for the introduction, now the questions
-How is the food on NCL
-Is is easy to have access to chairs on sun decks? we do not mind being far from the pools)
- Is the ship invaded with kids?( I do love kids, I just don't want them to consist of all the "clients" on the ship)
-How is the service?
-is Norwegian Dawn clean? (I saw it is an older ship)
-Do they offer service in other languages than English?(that is only out of curiosity)
-Do they offer a good wine list and a good wine package?
Thank you very much for answering those questions. I just want to make sure my mom and I both enjoy our cruise and we are so used to HAL.
