There was some apprehension on both my and my wife's part before we boarded this ship because of some of the reviews we read. But not only did we not experience anything close to some of the horrors people described, we were actually ... Read more

The best shows! The food was great,and the entertainment was good! A lot to do on the ship. We were exhausted by the evening. Most of the crew were very friendly especially the men. They had a different buffet theme every night. The dining ... Read more

To start, I traveled with my husband and two children ( 3 and 5 years old ) So this critic is mainly for those looking to cruise with small children. After reading reviews and Norwegian's website, the Gem appeared to be a family friendly ... Read more

Arrived at the port at 1130. Easily boarded at 1200 ish. Have your paperwork in order and it will always go fast. The ship is older as I had known. It was clean, rooms were smaller but for a 4 nighter I had no problem with that. The ... Read more

The cabin met expectations, quite honestly nothing to complain there.. we had some noisy neighbors one night which is expected from a these 'all you can drink' weekend cruises, so that wasn't too bad. We were expecting a lot more from ... Read more

My girlfriend and I took this cruise because her cousin got married on the ship. This was my fifth cruise overall and her first. It was my second time on NCL, the first one being NCL Majesty back in 2002. I've also been on Royal ... Read more

I chose this cruise as an add on to a 10 day Serenade of the Seas one I'd booked, as I like to make my airfare count! I used Jiffy Jeff to get me from FLL airport to Miami port & he offered great service ($15 shared, $45 alone), ... Read more

What can I say the Haven is a ship within a ship. Service, food, extras all excellent and was more than my wife and I expected. Embarkation seamless on ship and in our cabin in less than 45 minutes. We were in cabin 15102 H4 2 bedroom ... Read more

“Hey, let’s take our next vacation in a high school hallway.” “Sounds good, but can there also be small children running around and wandering about with no supervision whatsoever? I’d hate to have one moment ... Read more

We went on the Breakaway with friends for a cruise to the Bahamas. While we have already been to the destinations(which are so so) on previous cruises we decide to go again because we like the Breakaway. We like the freestyle dining in ... Read more

This was a smooth sailing cruise. It's a great ship with wonderful amenities. The shows were top-notch. We saw as many as we could and ate at many of the restaurants. The food had such flavor and free style eating is the way to go. No ... Read more

Well, after deciding to take our first vacation by ourselves (without the kids), my wife and I started looking into either a Cruise, or an All-inclusive resort. We booked pretty last minute, so after finding out we needed to spend nearly ... Read more

If you are looking for a great "bang for your buck," this is your cruise. This is mostly due to the all-inclusive beverages... juices, sodas, wines, beers, missed drinks, etc. With drinks on ships costing about $10, you can ... Read more

This was a girls week away- no hubbies or kids. It was a nice little break. Great weather for a short trip to the Bahamas! Overall, I enjoyed my time on the ship. I had been on her before, so I knew what to expect. My companion is ... Read more

I picked this cruise because it was leaving when I wanted from NYC. I booked at the last minute, the day before. Yes, you can still do that if there are cabins left. I also booked because they were not charging too much extra for a ... Read more

Cruised from 4/10-4/17. Made our selection based upon the "freestyle" option. We probably will not take a traditional cruise again. Loved not being locked in to a dining time or table with people we didn't know. Loved having the ... Read more
