We decided to take a family cruise, and planned this for almost a year. The excitement quickly turned to disappointment, as each day there were little things that just added to the aggravation. There wasn't any place on the ship except ... Read more

I don't know where to begin! This was my first cruise experience, so I was very skeptical, especially since the pictures posted of the Jade were prior to the renovation (we were second cruise subsequent to renovation) - needless to say, on ... Read more

This was my first Norwegian cruise. I was advised by a friend and my travel agent to choose a different line. However, I read about The Haven and wanted to try it. There was only one Courtyard penthouse suite left, so my TA grabbed it ... Read more

Embarkation was a long, slow process even though we were there an hour early. Waited in line almost three hours. Definitely bring food, water, etc. and maybe something that you can sit on while you wait. Departure was delayed due to ... Read more

SHIP: The ship was in pretty good condition considering that this is the last cruise before it goes to dry dock. I won't go into much detail on the decor, public spaces, etc., as it will all be different for the next cruise anyways. I ... Read more

We were part of Rock Boat XVII and it was amazing !! As our first cruise we couldn't have picked better. That said I doubt we will do a "regular" cruise after The Rock Boat experience. As it was so different, and so good. I don't ... Read more

We wanted to try a "themed" cruise. This was #8 for us. We LOVED the music onboard. The ship left much to be desired. As it was a 5 day/one day in port cruise it was a very long week on a very small OLD IN NEED OF REFURB ship. ... Read more

My son recommended this cruise, because he'd been sent the info by our local Travel Agent. So we went to see them. They were excellent in sorting out all the details. We cruised around the Caribbean from Jan 25th to Feb 6th 2017. This was ... Read more

We enjoyed our first cruise on the Jade. The crew was great and the concierge was the best I have ever encountered. He made 3 visits to the suite and greeted us daily. His name was O'mar. Specialty dinners in Cagneys were good. I wish ... Read more

Cruised with another couple. Both couples have travelled a lot on NCL. Both couples felt from the beginning that something was missing. The ship felt "dead". Didn't help that we couldn't have a sail-away party due to 10pm ... Read more

This was our eighth cruise with NCL, several of which have been in the Caribbean. We chose this cruise because it offered a different itinerary than most available on NCL. We had already been to many of the usual ports that NCL stops at ... Read more

Love to get out of New Jersey in January-February. Our dream cruise would take us to sunny, warm waters all of February. NCL fits us so well as we really like the free style dining and generally casual atmosphere. The Grand Pacific ... Read more

We just returned from the 12 Day NCL Caribbean January25-Feb 6th cruise. After a dozen cruises on Celebrity, we found this itinerary and decided to give NCL a try. We have always chosen the longer itineraries and this one seemed perfect ... Read more

We had a great time in all the ports on this cruise and liked the size of this ship and all the different dining options. The food was satisfactory, but the deserts were a little lacking except for Cagney's. The steaks and sides were ... Read more

Cruising is going downhill; too many specialty restaurants that you have to pay extra to get into & then pay for your dinner. The price of "Adult beverages" has gone through the roof. Because of these 2 things NCL is now ... Read more

Having cruised out of Tampa before, we decided that the 10 day E. Caribbean was a great deal through Casinos At Sea(NCL). We chose the UBP for $14 a day and it worked out splendidly! Check in only took 2 minutes in the CAS line. There was ... Read more

This was our 8th cruise with NCL over the past 12 years. It was the first time that we have cruised out of Tampa and embarkation wasn't a great experience. There seemed to be limited organisation around the exercise. For example, ... Read more

We like to take longer nights on a cruise so ten nights was just fantastic and a bonus our home port. We like NCL but will try any lines if going to the right places, this cruise went to all our favorite ports and the weather was perfect ... Read more

This itinerary and ship were new for us, and drive to the port not terribly bad. Embarkation and disembarkation were a breeze, especially since we carried our own luge on and off. We headed right to our cabin to drop off our luggage, ... Read more
