We just returned from a 7 Day cruise on the Norwegian Breakaway. The ship was beautiful. We reserved a mini suite. It was adequate space for a cruise ship, probably larger than most, but I think it was a little smaller than the Pride of ... Read more

Took this cruise as a last minute getaway. Embarkation was a breeze (I'm platinum level). Had an inside cabin on deck 5. Cabin was ready when I boarded at noon. Ate in Le Bistro, O'Sheehans, Manhattan, Savor and Taste. Not one bad meal. ... Read more

This was our first cruise on Norwegian after several on Royal Caribbean. I was concerned due to several bad reviews but have to say that we were very pleasantly surprised. It may be that we had the super service of the Haven, but even in ... Read more

As first time cruisers in our early 50's, we thoroughly enjoyed so much about our trip from NYC to Bermuda. We experienced incredible cuisine and desserts in comfy, posh restaurants, and loved the various activities and shows in the ... Read more

Now as far as the rest of the cruise week, it was just subpar. The entertainment was so scarce on this cruise compared to all of our other Norwegian cruises. We had to look to find entertainment that we enjoy. There was a lot of ... Read more

Spent the night before in Atlantic City. Easy 2 hour drive, easy to navigate and find the parking at the cruise terminal, and paid $280 for the week to park. Worth it for proximity and ease to terminal. Got there early, but took hours ... Read more

Our cruise started with a late embarkation due to a transportation issue...our bus broke down on the way to the pier, so we were not actually aboard until just after 3 PM. Made it just in time to find our cabin (Deck 11 Inside) and report ... Read more

We picked this cruise for a second time for the fun and for not having to fly to Miami. The Horseshoe Bay pink sand beach is by far the best our family has experienced anywhere, better than Hawaii, Australia, US, Bahamas or even the ... Read more

I love the Gem but am a little disappointed that the menu was more limited then before when I traveled on the Gem. The service was excellent and our room steward was nice and very clean. He helped us a great deal. The grand Pacific ... Read more

My family and I are avid cruisers (26) total so excuse me if review is lengthy. I am 51, wife in 40's and 2 sons 20 and 17. Let me immediately tell you that this ship was overwhelmed with 20-30 year olds and they could party. So for all ... Read more

We were on the Joannie Madden cruise. First cruise ever. The cruise was great but the Joannie Madden folk & Irish part was the really excellent part. Don't think I will ever do a cruise without the Irish entertainment part. We had ... Read more

Our first Cruise was on the NCL Jade a year ago. We loved it so much we wanted to repeat the experience. We found an exciting cruise starting from New York which meant we could have a 3 night stop in the city first then on to Bermuda. We ... Read more

This trip was the 4th trip my wife and I have taken with NCL and by far our least favorite ship. Had it not been for the destination (Bermuda), the friends we were with, and the fact that we renewed out vows for our 25th anniversary the ... Read more

We had originally booked the NCL Dawn out of Boston but were cancelled due to their extended dry docking. We had gone on the NCL Getaway, last year and were not impressed. So we chose the smaller, Dawn, instead. The Breakaway class ... Read more

This was my second cruise with NCL. I went in May 2015 also. The embarkation took a very long time. My dad is disabled and had to wait over an hour for a wheelchair. When we finally got on the ship, we had a bite to eat and went to our ... Read more
