So glad we decided to take a last minute cruise. Very good deal that we could not pass up. Stayed at the Embassy Suites the night before the cruise. My husband dropped me and the luggage off and then went and parked the car at the Fulton ... Read more

We booked this cruise because we needed some rest and relaxation. We selected NCL based on the itinerary offered (Cozumel, Roatan, Belize, and Costa Maya) and for the embarkation port (New Orleans). We had cruised previously on the ... Read more

My husband and I have only been on one cruise prior to this and had decided that cruising was not for us, as the experience was less than pleasant. Our children, ages 9 and 10, have begged us to take them on a "big ship", so I ... Read more

The NCL Star is a beautiful ship and big. My husband and I still did not know our way around after a week. The stateroom, a picture window room, was nicer in person than in pictures. Our stateroom attendant, Victorio, kept it clean and ... Read more

Let me start off by stating that my wife and I have never cruised before and we are both in our 50s. We weren't quite sure what to expect. I value others opinions but also want to make my own decisions, so I sort of take reviews like ... Read more

My wife and I did a Caribbean cruise on the Norwegian Escape and it was very good overall. We cruised with a group of friends, which two of them got married on the ship. I was skeptical from the previous reviews but they must have finally ... Read more

This was my 3rd Norwegian Cruise. I've taken the Epic, The Getaway and this year the Escape. For all of the people that have written bad reviews, they probably weren't going to have a good time on any cruise. For the people who complained ... Read more
