NCL is my go to cruise line when travelling solo. The studios are not large but perfectly adequate. The room was kept spotlessly clean and there were walkways supplies of hot and cold drinks and snacks in the lounge area. Our solo host for ... Read more

The last time we went on a cruise was over 30 years ago. It was one of those weekend trips to Nassau and it was a nightmare. It felt overcrowded and the room was dirty. We thought we would never go on a cruise again. However, we are ... Read more

We (husband and myself) flew in late the night before and stayed at the Intercontinental in Miami (very close to the port- only a $5 uber away). The hotel was very nice. I recommend paying to get breakfast included with your room as it ... Read more
