We were a bit nervous before sailing as the early reviews for this new ship were not spectacular. All in all we did enjoy this cruise very much. In the past we had cruised on Royal Caribbean's Oasis and the Allure, so my comparison is ... Read more

While there are nice features of this boat, the ship is unpleasantly overcrowded and under staffed. Norwegian seems to have stuffed too many (small) cabins onto the boat at the expense of public spaces and too few crew. We sailed with ... Read more

This was not only my first cruise with NCL, but the 3 other passengers I brought with me. The impression was that the cruise was geared more towards an older crowd. We are in the range of 28-38 years of age. I didn't mind that it was not a ... Read more

This is what I liked about the cruise; the food was available throughout the day and the sweets had real sugar. The ship was clean except the bathrooms. I have to say I was impress with the ease check-in and out system, I give them a 5 ... Read more

I have cruised many lines - mostly Royal Caribbean, and Princess and once on Cunard. This cruise on NCL was my second attempt and while it was fine, I probably will stick with other cruise lines. High points - I went on this cruise for ... Read more

From this point forward, I've decided I will write a review for every cruise that I take because I don't normally, and if you report the bad, then I will need to make it a point to report the good. I've taken two in the past...1998 when ... Read more

For months we looked at reviews and wondered what our experience with NCL would be. There is something I saw a while back that summed it all up: There is no such thing as a bad cruise. Catastrophes aside, this is true. No matter the ... Read more

Being this my first cruise, I couldn't ask for a better 7 day vacation where everything is done for you. I think that from the moment I boarded the ship it felt like 100,000 pounds was taken off of me. From the food to the entertainment I ... Read more

This is my 4th cruise and 4th cruise line. It was my first time with NCL. We headed out on Aug 29th, 2015 doing the inside passage of Alaska on the Norwegian Jewel. The ship was very average in every way. The food was pretty poor - ... Read more

I think the ship itself was wonderful. So clean and well maintained. All the staff were very responsive to our needs. The entertainment was spot on. The pool was smaller than I imagined and very salty - sometime too salty to bare. ... Read more
