We got a great deal on the cruise and stayed in a mini suite, which was a good size with a huge bed and even had a bath in the bathroom. Plenty of wardrobe space which was a bonus. The ship was refurbished in 2015 and you can really see ... Read more

My first cruise, I was a solo traveller. Unsure what to expect, although could not rate highly enough how fantastic the whole experience had been. Food, entertainment, cabin, and the staff were so friendly and welcoming, could not fault ... Read more

Quite disappointed and not as expected, having sailed on the Norwegian Sun previously. I felt that there were too many people for the size of the ship. Cabins quite cramped. Main market café - the worst. Couldn't get a seat, ... Read more

We chose this cruise because the ports were interesting and places we had never visited. We have sailed with NCL several times and basically knew what to expect on board ship. The ports were very interesting so we were not disappointed. ... Read more

I have been on many cruises, but had not been on NCL in many years before deciding to give them another try because I liked the itinerary. I wasn’t crazy about the ship, which was very smoky, and the food wasn’t very good. ... Read more

I set up some specifics for the agent and what I got was this trip. I guess everything was based on selling as much as possible. What I missed most onboard was a small armchair in my room. There were no chair onboard where you could just ... Read more

Cruise was taken on the recommendation of the travel agent. He said it wasn't in Fred Olsen or P&O class - at least he got that one right. It was terrible!! We arrived at Copenhagen and had to wait more than 2 hours for other flights. ... Read more
