We bought this cruise as a package deal having seen it advertised in a newspaper and seemingly a good buy. We had never been on a cruise before and were going to celebrate a significant birthday with close friends. So a little bit ... Read more

This was our second cruise aboard an NCL vessel, second of the "jewel' class of ships & the first post revamp. We found the boat to be in great condition, compared to the Pearl this looked much more updated and ... Read more

We chose to get married in Bermuda, and sailing on the Dawn to get there seemed convenient and cost effective for us. We ended up bringing over 60 of our friends and family aboard with us. In a word it was AMAZING!!!!! This was for me, and ... Read more

All in all for the price the cruise was really good! I didn't pay too much at all so the things that might have bothered me otherwise didn't. I was in the Solo Cabin so I also believe my experience was different from the non solo. ... Read more

Never again. Let me state I'm a very fluid go-with-the-flow kind of person, late 40s. I like to have a good time and my sense of entitlement begins and ends with what I pay for; no more, no less. That being said: 1. Room was dirty ... Read more

Mine and my cousins first time cruising! We flew from Birmingham to Barcelona (a city we have had the pleasure of a 3 day city break so didn't explore further, we wanted to see our Epic ship!) on Ryanair- not an ounce of turbulence and ... Read more

I had always wanted to do the Alaska cruise and so we decided to go with NCL. This was a 7 night cruise starting from and terminating at Seattle. The embarkation was pretty smooth and the ship was sparkling, it is 10 years old but ... Read more

The ship was gorgeous, the food was awesome (at the specialty restaurants) and the service was excellent, with some pretty good entertainment. Which is everything to expect in a 5 star cruise. Special thanks to the assistant ... Read more

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

Is not just a metaphor is a reality. I just come back from a 17 days “back to back” cruise on Norwegian EPIC and I realised, once again, that EPIC and in general Norwegian Cruise Line is like marmite for breakfast: you love ... 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

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

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
