NCL Dawn Review December 30 - January 8, 2017 Wow, What a great cruise. I have been on numerous cruises on Princess, Holland America, Celebrity and Carnival. Do not ever book a suite as you will never be able to go back to a ... Read more

Sharing New Years Eve with family, friends and past cruise mates on a cruise itinerary from New Orleans to the western Caribbean was our initial reason for booking this cruise. We love New Orleans as a destination in and of itself and ... Read more

I love Norwegian! I traveled with my aunt who is disabled and I was also on crutches. I love the ship, the people, the ports, the length of cruise! We were given a free upgrade to balcony, but this moved us from mid-ship to all the way ... Read more

This was our first NCL cruise and I would compare the service and food with the more expensive Celebrity. Two members of our party required wheelchair assistance to embark & disembark and the process was the smoothest ever. Service ... Read more

My disabled husband and I took our annual cruise. Since he can't fly, we are fortunate to have options in Florida to drive to. Wanting to take a bigger ship, so the Norwegian Epic out of Canaveral was a good pick. Parking, Embarking, and ... Read more

This is the first time that we have been Haven (10912) guests on Norwegian. This was a nice cruise but Norwegian needs to fix some things. The cabin boys leave their carts in the hallway, instead of bringing them closer to the room that ... Read more

I was in a large group with special needs such as wheelchair/scooter users. It is difficult to accommodate our group on excursions, but our travel agent, who happens to be a double leg amputee scooter user, was able to work with NCL and ... Read more

We chose to cruise on the Norwegian Jade out of Tampa as we have friends in that area who were traveling with us. Embarkation and disembarkation went fine. The ship was somewhat out of date but was not an issue for us. Our cabin was ... Read more

This was my third time on the Jade and it has become a bit outdated on decor and layout. The layout I will admit is one of the most awkward of any ship in their fleet. Le Bistro is tucked away and can be easily missed just walking by it. ... Read more

The NCL staff are great and it is hard work dealing with people who have drinks packages and a sense of entitlement. If you see the photos of the management, there are very few women. I like to spend my money with organisations that ... Read more

I chose this cruise for a last-minute escape from NYC; not for the ports or even the vessel itself. That said, this brand new ship is not always a user-friendly experience. I had a guarantee stateroom assigned by the line, so bear that ... Read more

The Norwegian Breakaway 11/6/2016 review Embarkation went smoothly and the sail-away party was too cold for us to be outdoors. Beside we have gone under that bridge many times. We had to take a different ship to go through the canal. ... Read more

We chose this itinerary as we were looking for one that offered my father ports to which he hadn't traveled. Beginning in Rome, and visiting Naples, Messina, Olympia, Athens, Limassol, (not really) Cairo, Haifa, Aqaba, Safaga, Salalah, ... Read more

This was my first NCL cruise and not sure of what to expect. The ship was very dated and is going in for a refurb in March so that is a good thing because I am booked on it again in September 2017. Embarkation was good, Disembarkation a ... Read more

Norwegian Pearl is a pearl of a ship, she is clean, friendly and full of really good vibes. We went on a 12 day cruise and just returned today. I have learned that having a good cruise is having a great ship not just the port of calls. ... Read more

This is an average cruise ship with small rooms. (Read my room review) The food was decent and complimentary Juices, lemonade and water when dining. They confiscate your wine at check in (San Pedro) as they have NO SYSTEM for counting and ... Read more
