We chose Norwegian because it was only one of two cruise lines that leave from Manhattan. We wanted a quick seven day get away and wanted to leave from Manhattan where we live. Problems started on day one before we even got under way ... Read more

We got this cruise through our Wyndham ownership. It was the first cruise for both of us, so we were looking forward to it. The process of getting from the pier to the ship was smooth and easy, but once on board we didn't know what to do ... Read more

We chose this cruise because my husband wanted to try out a cruise and I wanted to see Cuba. We loved the cruise, the food was amazing, drinks unlimited, and service was great, with the exception of one rude security guard. We went to the ... Read more

We chose this trip because we wanted to see Cuba before it "changed." We have never cruised with NCL before and never will again. Except for a very few exceptions, the staff were rude and didn't care about the guests. I don't ... Read more

The itinerary for this cruise is perfect. An overnight in Cuba and then a stop at their lovely private island. Being the lst cruise, we expected that there would be some issues with disembarkation, immigration, excursions but there were no ... Read more

We love NCL and this cruise did not disappoint. Embarkation is never fun but we love the advantage of being at the gold level. The embarkation staff were great. We do walk off disembarkation and our only suggestion there is that we ... Read more

First time cruising, had an amazing week. The food was delicious (especially Le Bistro and Cagneys). The drinks were great (especially mudslides) and the bartenders at the Pub and Whiskey Bar are the best. We already planning for another ... Read more

Mini suite 11042 and 11034: I liked a curtain separating the cabin in our mini suite. I loved that there was no upper bed and everyone (4) slept comfortably. The balcony roof is full of pipes, and also comes out because the pool ... Read more

Embark and disembark the easiest Cruise we have taken. NCL Sky ship was small but intimate. Cabins were small but great for a cruise. Service was wonderful. Dining gave you a variety. Port excursion to Beach was great, food wonderful. ... Read more

I really enjoyed my cruise, and I would definitely go again. The NCL Sky is older and smaller, but my room and all the public areas were clean and fresh. We had a good week, and a decent mix of people (old, young, etc.), but very few ... Read more

We have been on 20 cruises on 4 different cruise lines and this ship is one of the worst we have been on. We did not expect it to be the best cruise by any means when we booked it, but we got even less than expected. Getting onboard the ... Read more

Embarkation was quick and simple, disembarkation was disorderly, missing communication, and EXTREMELY long! We had one good meal on board. All other meals were were mediocre at best. The same food was served at most meals and wasn't good. ... Read more

SUMMARY: This was a wkend getaway for me and my sister in law. The embarkation was smooth and hardly any line. The disembarkation was organized as well. There was a line in customs but that has nothing to do with the ship. That is the Port ... Read more

We wanted a weekend cruise for a low stress family vacation where it was warm. This was perfect for me, my husband and my mom-in-law. The staff was wonderful to my mother-in-law, who is nearly 88. They made sure she could embark and ... Read more

Reviews from other family and friends had told us that this was one of the best cruise ships. And my husband found it to be very nice so much so we are sorry that we did not take advantage of the promotion where you pay $250. and Norwegian ... Read more

We chose this cruise because we could leave out of New York and not waste any vacation time. I only had a week vacation and wanted to spend each day relaxing. We had a balcony room, which was wonderful. Never been away in such a ... Read more

4000 people with over 1600 of them being kids - not my type of vacation. Rooms were kept clean - never told we would be charged $13 for a bottle of water that was in the room (thought we had unlimited water?). We were on 8th floor ... Read more

I've been on four NCL cruises. They were on smaller ships. I chose this particular cruise ship because I was excited to try one of their larger ships. However, to my dismay the service and warmth I felt on their large ship was night and ... Read more

This was our 2nd Breakaway Spring Break Cruise with our teens (14 & 16). We sailed last year around this time as well. Both times were wonderful... Highlights this time around... Getting on the ship and getting off were much ... Read more

We choose this cruise as it sails out of NYC and saves us airfare as we live in NYS. It was fun because we were with family and friends with no time restraints. Food and drink and sun were plentiful. Our only concern was the lack of ... Read more

We were invited on this cruise by another couple. I had never been on a cruise before, but my boyfriend had been on one over 10 years ago. Having nothing to compare it to, I thought this cruise was great! The ship was smaller than others ... Read more

Chose due to itinerary and length of trip. Ship is pretty outdated and has lots of creaks and banging noises when moving. Bed was hard as a rock, lumpy and tilted toward the head, pillows are no better. Bathroom was TINY. Shower about ... Read more

Embarkation was quick. We arrived at the port a little after noon, and were on the ship before 12:30. We immediately went to Crossings Main Dining Room and had a great first meal. Our room was ready right on time, and was clean and ... Read more
