Overall, it was a great cruise. The ship is clean and well maintained. The crew was very good. The food was just so-so. The Cadillac Diner was horrible. Cagney's was very good. La Cucina was OK. Teppanyaki was very good. ... Read more

When I boarded the ship on Sat., 8/8, I immediately noticed the lack of enthusiasm on the part of the employees. In the past, even if they had to "fake it to make it," there was a level of excitement about being boarding the ... 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

My partner and I booked our 3rd Norwegian Cruise (but our first on the Epic) out of Barcelona in July 2015. I had heard about the EPIC since 2009 and was excited to be booked on that ship. Within minutes of stepping on board, we smelled ... 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

I flew into Anchorage 2 days early to sightsee. I then traveled to Seward via bus from Anchorage to embark on the Sun. I did back to back cruises for 14 nights. I loved Alaska and it was a once in my lifetime trip. I did not like the ... Read more

Having sailed 3 other lines, I was anxious to give NCL a try. Alaska was a perfect itinerary to do so,as we took the train up to Seattle from Portland and got to save some money for the excursions and a sweet upgrade. We upgraded into ... Read more

Lets start off with the ship. This was one of the best kept and most clean that I have seen cruise ship in years. I think the Captain has a lot to do with this. Second is the crew. I felt as welcomed and had fun each and every day with ... Read more

Let me begin by saying this was my first cruise so I have no point of reference. These are merely my observations as a first-time cruiser of what worked and didn’t work for me on this ship. Take it for what it is. We have no ... Read more

This hands down was the greatest vacation I have taken. It was our 6th cruise and we have stayed at all inclusive resorts and other vacations as well. Definitely the best way to see the Hawaiian islands. You hit Oahu, Maui, Hilo, Kona, and ... Read more

We chose to cruise on the Norwegian Breakaway from New York to Bermuda as it enabled us to visit friends in New York and to spend time in Bermuda, an Island I know well. As a first timer I was also unsure of whether I would enjoy the ... Read more

I was first on the Epic in February of 2014. We loved the "new" NCL so much we went on the Getaway in October of 2014 and we are booked on the Escape in 2015. Needless to say I am saying goodbye to my old friend Princess ... Read more

Sailing on the Norwegian Sun was a truly extraordinary experience! There's really no comparison to other cruise lines like Carnival or Royal Caribbean. Norwegian is insanely superior: it's the difference between kinda-having-fun-on-a-boat ... Read more

Booked the NCL Sky for a quick getaway from Miami. We have been on ship twice before for 15 days in 2000 (Panama Canal) and 11/2013 for a Thanksgiving Day weekend getaway. Our experience in 2013 was just "ok" . We are Latiitudes Platinum ... Read more
