This was my first Norwegian cruise. I was advised by a friend and my travel agent to choose a different line. However, I read about The Haven and wanted to try it. There was only one Courtyard penthouse suite left, so my TA grabbed it ... Read more

The cruise we chose was a 14 day Western & Eastern Caribbean. In fact it was two one week cruises and we had to disembark at the end of the first week and then embark for the second cruise. This process was slow and cumbersome, not ... Read more

Norwegian Escape My lady (Linda) and I (Scott) are a couple in their 60’s and late 50’s. She is retired, and I am still working. We chose the Escape because it visited Tortola, an island we had not visited before, as ... Read more

I have been on 5 cruises with NCL ( always pleased ) and been on the Dawn once before, prior to recent renovation. Very nice redo and ship looks great, however that does not make up for lack of service- 24 hours before my steward showed ... Read more

Long Review We booked this cruise last minute. Literally within one week of sailing. We live on the West Coast so it took some fancy footwork to get everything arranged. At first we thought we would try an inside cabin guarantee. It ... Read more

The cruise was recommended by another NCL ship person. This ship was designed differently from other NCL ships. Someone on the ship said it was made in France and was the only NCL ship from there. If you want any bathroom privacy this is ... Read more

It seemed at every turn, this cruise was perfect. The staff- from the Hotel Director, Sean and his Assistant Errol, to our cabin steward, Christopher- were on top of everything. We had a Mini-Suite w/ Balcony- our room was always clean and ... Read more

Truthfully, I chose this cruise because the dates worked perfectly with my grad-student daughter's schedule. When I told my travel agent that I was an older parent who wanted her creature comforts and yet wanted for my daughter ... Read more

I decided this cruise because it fit our schedule (my wife and I) to get away with my wife and enjoy the warm weathers (for a bit). To disconnect from the busy world we live and get some alone time. To contextualize our trip: 1) We ... Read more

Service was awful from the moment we checked in at Port Canaveral to the last day. Most of the staff was unfriendly, lacked a smile and just rude. We had bad weather day 2, yet Norwegian shut down all outdoor activities, including pools ... Read more

First off, I may not be as experienced as some of the other reviewers and I wouldn't consider myself high maintenance. I personally believe each cruise line has positives and negatives and that you can have a good time based on your needs ... Read more

The Norwegian Escape is big, bold and beautiful. We enjoyed this cruise immensely Pros: 1. New ship, with more public areas than you can imagine using in 7-nights! 2. Good dining options both free and up-charge. 3. Very ... Read more

We booked two weeks before sailing and got an enclosed balcony cabin for the first time - we loved it! Ultra quiet and quite roomy. Storage space was limited, but okay for a 7 (or 10) day cruise. Our flight was delayed on sail day, so ... Read more

I chose this cruise because of the convenience of sailing from a local port of call (NYC) on one of NCL's newest, largest, and most amenable to a single cruiser (with their Studio rooms). Although I was unable to secure a Studio room ... 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

Overall - The appearance of the ship, the comfort of the cabin and the quality of the food were improved tremendously from my last NCL cruise. The itinerary was good and the ports (not Costa Maya - a waste) left us with incredible ... Read more
