Boarding was a nightmare. The line to enter the registration process was very long and most people were standing in the hot sun for hours. We were given a number of excuses for why the boarding was so delayed and jammed up, but not sure ... Read more

I selected this cruise and this cruise line for one, because it was New Orleans, the closest port too me, and two, the western Caribbean itinerary. The embarkation was smooth and couldn't have asked for better. We selected a 1030 ... Read more

I have cruised on NCL before and this might be the last time. The quality of NCL service and the overall of the cruise itself is getting poorer and poorer as the years go by. They keep on cutting services and value that I will start ... Read more

This cruise was recommended by a friend; we thought the new ship would be great, but none of our group had ever sailed with Norwegian before. We managed to have some fun in spite of Norwegian. There were too many unpleasant surprises. ... Read more
