I received a phone call from NCL 3 days before the ship sailed offering me a cabin for a very good price especially because I sail alone and most times must pay for 2 people. The cabin was very comfortable for one person so I was happy. ... Read more

I noticed this short cruise offered not long ago, and jumped at the chance to check out a newer NCL ship. My husband didn't want to go, and my kids just started school, so I called a girlfriend and off we went. Getting there turned out ... Read more

This was our first cruise. The embarkation was very fast and we could start very fast with our cruise. The luggage was concerned to the cabine. From the beginning the crew was very friendly and helpful. The cabin was clean and there was ... Read more

This was our 3rd cruise with NCL (we were on the Dawn out of Boston twice. We've been on 6 cruises overall). Out of the 6th cruises we've taken, this one was rated the lowest. First of all, the intinnary changed. About 5 or so months ... Read more

This was my first time on NCL Cruise line and it certainly won't be my last! The Cruise Director Alvin was amazing and I really thought he must have a twin because he was everywhere! The personality of Alvin and Zach the Assistant was ... Read more

I chose this cruise because it was promotional deal. I am glad I went on this ship - the food, staff, rooms, and entertainment were all stellar. Maintenance was constant but unobtrusive. There were a lot of activities to chose from on ... Read more

This is a quick and inexpensive getaway. The food was the best I've had in all the ships I have been on and they did not skimp on the alcoholic beverages, considering it was an "all-inclusive" package. The Sky is visibly dated ... Read more

Basically this was a quickie 4 day "booze" cruise. The ship was in great shape, clean and shinny. Embarkation check-in took forever. I finally took out my book and read so then it went a little faster. To me the great plus ... Read more

Me: fifty-something single woman, somewhat experienced cruiser, on my first solo cruise. I enjoyed the Norwegian Sky as a good weekend-getaway ship. The Sky, with its short itineraries and open bars, has a reputation as a "party ... Read more

Perfect adult getaway! Not for kids or families though. This is not the biggest, nicest ship I've been on, but great drinks that are part of the cruise price! This is the first time my bar bill didn't exceed the cost of my cruise, lol. ... Read more

We chose this cruise for the dates, amount of time actually sailing and price point. As someone who had only been on Carnival in the past, my expectations were low as well as enthusiasm. I personally was going because my partner really ... Read more

Birthday cruise. Perfect getaway just 4 nights. The service and food and amenities I have to consider all excellent. Shows were great with all the energy from the performers coming right out to the audience. Drinks not watered down.. ... Read more

This was my first-ever cruise. We were on a family reunion with 13 people and seven rooms. To put it simply, I have become a cruiser for life. Embarkation was a nightmare. The process seemed to last for hours and it did. I have had ... Read more

We chose to go on a cruise last minute and we ended up on the Norwegian Gem. We embarked from the port in NYC and commuted there from CT. It was easy to find right off the Hudson parkway and we drove up and parked without any trouble. I ... Read more

This was our 4th cruise on Norwegian in the past year. The other 3 were on the Breakaway. The Gem is a smaller ship with nice amenities. The Cabin was small, the bathroom was unmanagable. Shower was fine but zero room to use the toilet. ... Read more

New crew with a lot of training needed. Ship itself nothing special with a nice mid sized ship feel. Food quality seems to keep going down. Hall and room phones often did not work. Cruise director and specialty coordinators not very good ... Read more

Perhaps I have sailed Norwegian one too many times. The evening shows were stale for lack of a better term and the daily 'entertainment' was virtually nonexistent. The few events during the day that looked interesting had an additional fee ... Read more

I have been on a lot of vacations that are all inclusive. The Norwegian Sky was truly all inclusive. All the liquor was top shelf and the accessibility to all bars was great. The service was fabulous. They made you feel you were paying $15 ... Read more
