We chose this cruise because we wanted to get away for a few days and because it was reasonably priced and included the open bar. It was a good time with lots of music and dancing! The ship shows its age but it was very smooth and you ... Read more

This is my 8th cruise, and my 2nd cruise with Norwegian. I was very excited to be going on such a large ship. Unfortunately this was not a great ship due to its layout. Despite being huge, it felt very small. Other than the theater, there ... Read more

Norwegian Breakaway was horrible from start to finish. They nickel and dime you for everything, from service charges to drink taxes etc. that's very annoying. the long insane dysfunction of embarking and disembarking at terminal and at ... Read more

The ship was just so amazing. My cabin was just like was pictured on the website. The dining was pretty good. I was not impressed with the garden dining (buffet). The food was not so great and was the same pretty much meal after meal. ... Read more

This is the first time that we have been Haven (10912) guests on Norwegian. This was a nice cruise but Norwegian needs to fix some things. The cabin boys leave their carts in the hallway, instead of bringing them closer to the room that ... Read more

Took us two hours to check in. True, the New York port is old and you have a big ship. But you can send some people to give us water/snack instead of having us look at people checking into the havens lounge like we are second class ... Read more

Celebrating 48th anniversary and no mention of it in any way on cruise. This was our 38th cruise and the worst of any. No cabin steward or day planner for 2 days and never met cabin steward. Not enough personnel to take care of cabins. ... Read more

This is one of the worst cruises we have gone to. We know that the 3-4 day cruises aren't great but always known for being fun not fancy. Here are a list of experiences we had and you be the judge: The Norwegian Sky does not ... Read more

I wanted a cruise that would be inexpensive and offer bonus things like free drinks. I have been on Sky before it became the open bar ship. Fearing that the drinks would be weak, hard to get, poor service, and all other fears that could ... Read more

I chose this cruise because of the price. It was all inclusive and super cheap. I have heard nothing but positive things about Norwegian from friends. I am so glad that I finally got to experience "the cruise". We were ... Read more

This was our first time cruising Norwegian since our honeymoon 35 years ago. We have cruised Celebrity, Carnival, and RCI. We chose this cruise because of the price. I mean, who can argue with $199 pp for a night cruise? We did upgrade to ... Read more

For their 20th Anniversary my company from New Jersey celebrated this milestone by taking all their employees on the cruise. My first impression of the ship was colorful bright and cheery. Our state rooms were larger than I thought and ... Read more

We chose this cruise as a last minute warm weather destination because it was a GREAT value. We flew from Chicago to Miami and were on the ship by 11:30 a.m. but had to wait for our room to be ready (1:30 p.m.) They served us cocktails ... Read more

The week after Thanksgiving is a great time to cruise as it is inexpensive and uncrowded. There were relatively few families on board, but lots of young singles from South America. We found no lines getting checked in, being seated for ... Read more

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 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
