Although the ship was a little outdated (but it going through a dry-dock in May 2016), this cruise was by far one of the best cruises I have been on and this was my 6th (3 on Carnival, 2 on Norwegian, 1 on Royal Caribbean). Really ... Read more

My husband, my three year old daughter, and I were on the 4/3 sailing of the Norwegian Dawn from New Orleans through the Western Caribbean. We are both teachers in Georgia and this was our school’s Spring Break. We went on our ... Read more

Honestly this was the best vacation I have ever taken! The ship in general had a great layout and had A LOT of things to do! There were a lot of teens and I was able to make friends very easily. But if you aren't a teen/don't want to be on ... Read more

I was a "solo cruiser" on this particular cruise. Being hesitant to go since I had just been on this ship in October 2015 when the service was horrible, I didn't know what to expect... The port had valet parking, so for an extra ... Read more

So like most of you I read a lot of reviews for the Getaway claiming poor, inattentive service, and at this point I am convinced 90% of those are competing cruise lines trying to sandbag. I am a very picky traveler and have little patience ... Read more

Was a little concerned after reading several reviews leading up to our cruise. Not sure what they were complaining about as the cruise was great. Embarking and disembarking were a breeze. Arrived at port at 10:30, checked in and sat ... Read more

I have been on several cruises across multiple lines. And I can't say enough good things about this cruise! We had a wonderful embarkation even with a member of our party in a scooter. It was quick and efficient. We explored the ship and ... Read more

Hi everyone, I decided to start with all the positives of the cruise, before going on with the fact that this was going to be my last cruise with NCL. Embarkation was a breeze. Maybe 30 minutes from arriving at the port to being on ... Read more

PROS: * Italian and seafood specialty restaurants were EXCELLENT. (an added cost of $17.50pp added to seafood restaurant was a bit of a surprise) * Irish pub where you could get food was a nice touch * Room staff were great * ... Read more

This was our 17th cruise with NCL in less than 5 years, the first 16 were just wonderful so we were really looking forward to this cruise also. After this cruise I can say that the Jade is the worst, and not an NCL standard. Most of the ... Read more

We went on this cruise to surprise friends who were already booked. Unfortunately we were not impressed. This was our 9th cruise (second on Norwegian). Embarkation was smooth for us, not the couple traveling with us. They were held up ... Read more

At the last minute we decided to book a 7 night cruise on NCL out of Houston. I had some time off and the price was fantastic so away we go. We booked an inside room guarantee only 10 days before departure and got it for $299pp with tax ... Read more

We had an awesome time! I can't say that I would feel the same way had we not scored the Vibe Beach Passes. Rowman & Roberto (Vibe bartenders) both contributed to our amazing experience. The food was great at Cagney's, Food Republic, ... Read more

Having been on over 20 cruises with a competing cruise line, I was skeptical about venturing out on an older smaller ship as the Spirit. My first impression of the ship was that even in its old age, the ship is magnificent. Our room was ... Read more

The Escape is a great new ship getting excellent reviews and I agree. There are many pluses and only a very few minuses. We have cruised with NCL a number of times so we know most of the drill. The first and last plus was the timed on ... Read more
