We cruised last week on the Dawn out of New Orleans. It was my 4th cruise on Norwegian and my husband's 5th. We have never thought the food on Norwegian was outstanding; it is inferior to other cruise lines. This time I think it was even ... Read more

My college age daughter and her friends chose this cruise. They had a wonderful time. The food was good. We were not impressed with Burn the Floor. The Millionaire Quartet was good with the exception of the music was too loud and ... Read more

Just returned to winter from a wonderful cruise on the NCL Getaway. I travelled with two of my best friends, all in our late-30's. We were all seeking a week of pure relaxation - so our primary focus was to read, lay in the sun, and stare ... Read more

My husband and I were in a group of 12,including 4 other couples and 2 teens. We chose Norwegian, for the first time,mainly for the value when we compared a similar Royal Caribbean cruise. The balcony cabin was approx. $1000 cheaper and ... Read more

Our prior cruises were on smaller NCL ships and were thoroughly enjoyable. What we liked on this cruise: Exceptional dining available, in the Taste, Savor, and The Manhattan. And an over-the-top dining experience at Cagney's. For ... Read more

I chose the cruise after reading up on the ship and what was offered, liked the fact that the ship was brought into service about 18 months ago and was a newer ship. Was looking at another cruise line but the dress code on the other line ... Read more

We have always cruised with Princess and enjoyed their ships very much!. Loved trying the Norwegian Escape, but I had/have a couple of complaints; lots of entertainment and games were held in the Atrium instead of smaller venues, such as ... Read more

After much consideration we booked our first non-dcl cruise on the Escape. The price was right, hubby was encouraged by the District brewhouse and DS17 by the all-night wing availability. We were determined to go in with open minds. We ... Read more

After sailing on many cruises, we took our very good friends on their first cruise -- and NCL hit a home run for all four of us. We selected the Norwegian Escape because it has so much to offer both to veteran cruisers and newbies. We ... Read more

March 4th, 2017 Note: there are no bad cruises, they are what you make them and we did enjoy ourselves. A travel agent booked this cruise for one of the people going in our group & we all ended up going on it. Pros: ... Read more

My fiance and I went on this cruise for our spring break and it was just us two which made it easy to get into restaurants and such. We flew into Miami the night before so that we would have time for any hiccups that might occur. This was ... Read more

While my wife and I usually sail with Princess, her sisters planned this getaway so we joined them (10 of us) for this wonderful 'escape' to the warmer weather. The flights into FLL were much cheaper from Toronto so we flew in the Friday ... Read more

First, I must admit that I am partial to freestyle cruising. I love the freedom to do what you want, when you want, dress-up or not; thus, points are auto-added just for that. Getting aboard was quick and easy. We were escorted to ... Read more

The boat was nicely (& newly) remodeled and the ports were amazing. The room steward (Ivana) was amazingly quick, thorough and kind. The rest of the staff that I came into contact with was slightly rude (I didn't hold it against them ... Read more

Getting on the ship and leaving the ship were very quick and easy. Our cabin - oceanview with picture window and large enough and had adequate storage. The shower with sliding glass door was a good size. There were too few public ... Read more

We got this cruise as a promotion for a timeshare purchase we made last year. We had our choice between Carnival, Royal Caribbean and Norwegian, and since we have sailed both Carnival and Royal Caribbean many times, we figured we'd try ... Read more

This was my 2nd cruise with Norwegian (first was on the Jewel) and it was as wonderful as I remembered it was! The Jewel class ships are perfect! I love that passenger list is smaller. My best friend and I decided to take a cruise and ... Read more

We have been NCL Latitudes Platinum level members for years. The benefits offered for this level contribute greatly to our reason for booking with NCL instead of with competing lines. On this cruise, we were amazed to see that our benefits ... Read more

My friend and I chose Norwegian based on our cruise to Alaska last year on the same line. We were very pleasantly surprised by the size of the mini-suite, especially the spacious bathtub and shower. The staff and crew were all wonderful ... Read more

Our experience was not the greatest. Smoking on balconies, in front of entrances so the smell wafted into the main areas and the stench from the casino was appalling. The stench wafted in the theatre on deck six. Gross. We walked out ... Read more

The Gem is our favorite ship! Embarkation went very quickly. A few issues with changing the time of our docking, but it also went smoothly once docked. We hit some rough seas for a bit but that is Mother Nature. The food in the main ... Read more

IMHO, Using The NYC Cruise Terminal is not a pleasant experience. The embarkation was so backed up. Maybe because the TSA was only operating 3 of the 8 check points? Once past this obstacle, NCL did a fine job. Still it took 85 minutes ... Read more
