We arrived at the pier at Noon and went through customs with passport. Went to see the mini suite and it was that small and since I am handicapped the doorway just barely fit through the door. We went to the desk for some off ship ... Read more

This was our eighth cruise on Norwegian. We chose this one because it was the right length, time of year, and departure port of New York meaning we would not have to fly somewhere. We opted for the Haven penthouse 12706, forward and ... Read more

I cannot recommend the Norwegian Gem! The ship is recently refurbished but HVAC brought on asthma/bronchitis. Maybe mold circulating? We expected an inclusive experience, instead we felt extra costs were at every turn. We had ... Read more

This itinerary and ship were new for us, and drive to the port not terribly bad. Embarkation and disembarkation were a breeze, especially since we carried our own luge on and off. We headed right to our cabin to drop off our luggage, ... Read more

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

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
