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

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

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

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

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
