One would think that even if one is staying in a regular stateroom, that NCL would offer at least decent conditions. The hallways on level four always stank of feces, like every toilet on that floor was backing up. Food was fairly ... Read more

Have cruised a moderate number of times on various cruise lines, including NCL. The good news is that the staff and crew were for the most part very friendly and professional. That being said, it was nearly impossible, other than in the ... Read more

So let me start my saying that when I started planning our cruise to Alaska I looked at almost every cruise line available. We settled on NCL because there would be three of us and we didn't want to be sharing a room. Therefore we really ... Read more

I have cruised Norwegian line for the last 8 cruises and have found it a great delight, especially on the Pearl. However this particular cruise felt devoid of the joy and excitement I felt from the crew and the itinerary of the past. We ... Read more

We did our cruise on the last week of the season, from 20-27 Sept, 2015. Although rain was predicted beforehand, it turned out to be almost perfect, even warm enough at one point for me to sunbathe on our balcony. This was after almost 2 ... Read more
