Loved Norwegian Airlines! Given the fact that our price was so low everything was excellent.

Apr 18, 2018

Entertainment was great, easy to use also. Ordering food was not great -- they ran out of almost every selection, and it was not clear when we could order things (how to order was pretty easy, though, just not "when.")
