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

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

I was on a cruise with 25 friends. As a group vacationing, we had a great time, but honestly that had more to do with being on the ship with lots of friends and the planning that went into our vacation by our 2 friends celebrating their ... 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

About Me: I’m a 33 year old gay male who sailed solo on this cruise. This was the follow-up to a promotion Norwegian Cruise Line ran in early 2014. If you cruised on Norwegian Breakaway or Norwegian Getaway, you would get a FREE ... Read more

My partner and I consulted a Norwegian Cruise Agent about the "Gem." He told us since its a week before Christmas most of the cruisers would fall in our age range (I'm 30 my partner 31). This was not the case, 85% were senior citizens, 10% ... Read more

I would say that overall we had a good cruise, but as a ship, the Sun has some glaring problems. I've been on small ships before, and the size did not bother me. What bothered me was the layout of some of the areas. when the tables were ... Read more

We recently took the June 14th sailing on Norwegian Getaway. We really cannot say enough great things about this ship, its staff, and its amenities. The ship (albeit new) was in pristine condition. Moreover, I feel as though it was one of ... Read more

Boat: How can you go wrong with a new boat? Everything was very nice. Public places were well maintained and ethically pleasing. This is a big boat and therefore you may need a day or two in order to really get a feel for the boat. ... Read more

We chose this cruise for 2 reasons, price and for the port it was leaving from. The price was cheap because it was between college spring break, and April vacation for schools. It left from NYC, so I was able to take a 2 hour drive instead ... Read more

This was the 2nd cruise I took my girlfriend on. We chose to cruise with NCL Sky again. I honestly have no negative reviews here. I guess it's a hit or miss with these cruises as I have read some good and bad reviews for the Sky. We had a ... Read more
