Sailed November 2007
We drove to New Orleans a day early and spend the night. I would recommend doing so since there is a lot to do in New Orleans and it gets you in the proper mood for your cruise. We had no trouble finding the terminal and were directed to ... Read more

Sailed November 2007
This was our anniversary cruise and we were not disappointed. Although the embarkation in New Orleans was exceptionally slow (as was the debarkation process) this was the only 'lowpoint" of our entire cruise. Our balcony cabin was very ... Read more

Having been on Celebrity, Disney, RCCL and Carnival, I must say this was the worst cruise line I have ever experienced. Always wanted to try NCL and thought that the one-night might give me a first hand experience before booking a 7 night ... Read more

Just got back from our cruise, 10/7-10/13. I was a little skeptical after reading some of the previous reviews and posts on the message board. I was pleasantly surprised. The ship was very nice and kind of ornate due to the Asian ... Read more

Embarking was a breeze, quickest we've seen yet. Able to board about 1pm for 4 pm departure. We weren't real impressed with most of the food we had on board, most desserts bland and tasteless, dinners were okay, not what we had expected. ... Read more
