I should start out by saying that this was my first NCL cruise. I have cruised three times prior on Carnival and loved it. My parents took this same cruise and they loved it. My husband and I took this cruise for our honeymoon, as we ... Read more

Sailed November 2015
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

From the time we checked in to the time we were on the ship the whole time, the experience on NCL this time around has deteriorated for sure. When we first sailed with them, the whole process was great, the customer service as amazing, ... Read more

I have returned from the inaugural sailing of NCL's newest ship, Escape. I was very much surprised at the changes to the layouts and formats from the 2 previous ships - NCL Breakaway and Getaway. Different classes. Different experience. ... Read more

My reason for choosing cruising over other forms of travel is for the personalized service. On many ships you can feel like you are staying in a 5 star hotel for very little money. Whether in an interior or the captains suite- you are made ... 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

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

Amazing cruise... 14 days ONE way Barcelona to Venice. You can not beat the itinerary - it is very cool and a very good value for how many stops. Not many cruise ships go to France, Italy, 2 stops in Greece, 2 stops in Turkey, Croatia ... Read more
