This was our 4th sailing on the Sky and I have to say we were a little disappointed. We've always enjoyed the short weekend trips, and the ability to just get away from everything, but it feels like the ship has gone downhill. The rugs on ... Read more

We have taken this Sky cruise several times. We use it as a weekend getaway from the office. The staff is always very courteous and professional; boarding and disembarking has always been painless. We always use the gourmet ... Read more

We had not been on a cruise for about 13 yrs....3 nights was a little too short. Have been on about 8 cruises so not sure if "cruising" is not the same in general or if a 3 night cruise is not the best way to experience a ... Read more

Our first cruise as a family during the Thanksgiving week exceeded our expectations. If you like a relaxed atmosphere without having to dress in a tux for dinner then this might meet your needs. We had some concerns about the open bar but ... Read more

My wife and I were offered a free inside cabin by Casino At Seas for this cruise. We accepted and upgraded to an Ocean View Family Cabin. This was our first time sailing during a holiday. The itinerary included stops at Port Canaveral ... Read more

Birthday celebration / Thanksgiving holiday cruise to the Bahamas from Manhattan. We had a group of 18 people and booked 8 cabins for this 7-night cruise. The ship itself is beautiful and clean. The cabins were very nice. Our cabin ... Read more

First time on Norwegian. NEVER again. Check in was a nightmare. We reserved a large group thru Norwegian. I was never told by the less than helpful agent that since my under 18 son had a different last name, I would need to show a birth ... Read more

I'm 73 years old so my better cruising days are behind me. NCL is a good cruise line. We have sailed on several others cruise lines, Celebrity, Princess, Holland America, and NCL is on par with those. We have taken about 14 cruises in the ... Read more

The Breakaway is a beautiful ship. The variety of activities is great, but for us... there are too many people aboard to really enjoy them and it has a few basic design flaws as well. The main one is having a smoking casino wide open into ... Read more

This cruise was a warm weather getaway for us and the first on a ship of this size. We went into it knowing that NCL charges extra for access to certain areas of the ship. We decided to not take part in those areas. Overall, we had a great ... Read more

I went on the Breakaway on the 11-13 to 11-20 cruise. I went in with low expectations based off the reviews. I actually enjoyed it a lot--and while there are some warts, overall I felt the cruise was well worth the money, and as I live on ... Read more

I was traveling with a group (14) of adults with special needs. The Breakaway staff were great when it came to accommodating our needs and generally were helpful. They went above and beyond to included the members of my group in all the ... Read more

The public needs to know when the advertising is deceptive. We were intrigued and thrilled to see the Four FREE offers made available when we booked our second cruise in the Haven. We still enjoy the Haven level offered on the ... Read more

We chose this cruise because it's close to home so convenient to get to the port but mostly because we find NCL does a great job managing so many people on this big ship. Is everything perfect at all times - no, but when you do have a ... Read more

I chose this cruise for a last-minute escape from NYC; not for the ports or even the vessel itself. That said, this brand new ship is not always a user-friendly experience. I had a guarantee stateroom assigned by the line, so bear that ... Read more

Second time on BA. We had a great time but not because of the ship. Although it is a maintained well, it is starting to show wear and tear. Staff are not as friendly as expected, seem over worked. Ship design is extremely poor, ... Read more

We were very excited to cruise NCL for the first time. We've cruised Celebrity, Carnival and Royal Caribbean in the past, and wanted to see how NCL stacked up. Unfortunately, up until this cruise Carnival had been our least favorite. Now ... Read more

Our NCL cruise started off well. Embarkation was smooth and efficient. We found the Norwegian Sky public areas clean but showing signs of wear. It appears like it’s time for a dry dock refresh. Our oceanview cabin was mostly as ... Read more
