We chose this cruise because we were able to visit some places we had never been to before, A beach in Honduras, river tubing in Belize, Mayan Pyramids in Costa Maya, Mexico, and Cozumel, Mexico. We were involved in Wine Tasting, ...
Having been on the Getaway, we decided to go on NCL again. Big Mistake. They must have been offering cheap deals because the majority of passengers were beer guzzling trash.Pool not big enough, not enough quiet shaded areas, which forced ...
Family voted for cold and boy they got it! Only 2 days of sunshine with lots of rocking, rolling and raining. Great views, fun excursions, seafood galore and time to relax were on our agenda. Ships decor is more suited to the Caribbean but ...
We have always wanted to see Alaska and this was a great way to do it. We had great weather, better than even we had hoped for, so it did add to the experience.
This is 5th cruise and 3rd on NCL. We had a balcony, cannot imagine this ...
This was the first time cruising with NCL. We had only cruised once previously with Carnival. Well NCL kicked butt on all levels.
Embarkation: Their process in procedures in Venice were hands down the most organised, The process was ...
The Norwegian staff go out of their way to make the cruise as pleasurable as possible, from your dining, entertainment, room and excursion experiences. Bermuda was an absolute paradise.
My husband and I felt most comfortable eating at ...
The cruise was very good - excellent food, entertainment and staff, we were well looked after. The choice of food in the complimentary restaurants was very varied and all well cooked/presented.
Evening shows/entertainment was very good ...
I should start this review by stating that I have cruised on Royal Caribbean and Carnival but do most of my cruising with Viking. That being said, I am used to a much older crowd, so I did not enjoy the company on my cruise. ...

We booked the NCL Epic as it was a fantastic price, all inclusive!! UBP unlimited beverage pkg, all service charges and taxes. It was so pleased to get my bill on last day with a zero balance. I booked dining rooms in advance online, wait ...
We have cruised with Norwegian before and have found they cater to everything we like. The option of the Beverage Package and dining or shore credits, makes it a very good deal. The food in all the restaurants was top rate, and the ...
I recently sailed the Gem from New York to the Bahamas for 7 days. Price per person was actually great at only $499 per person, after tax and the mandatory gratuity total came out to roughly $1,600 for two people. This was my first cruise ...
Wonderful cruise, fantastic staff, good food, clean ship.
We chose Norwegian for their freestyle dining, that was great, we could eat when we wanted at 6 restaurants, so we didn't purchase a dining plan, however we did spend extra to ...
This cruise served its purpose that was to see Hawaii and be in port everyday. This ship does give you the advantage of not having to sail 4 days out at sea till you get to Hawaii. NCL has a nice business for themselves with this ship. ...
I really loved this Cruise. It was our honeymoon and we picked this trip because we met 3 years ago on a Norwegian Cruise, from Miami, to the East Caribbean.
The Guest Service gave us a wine and chocolates in the room and a botte of ...
We chose this cruise because of the itinerary and the time frame. The main dining room's poor service and cold un-appetizing entrees were only overshadowed by the excruciating lack of wine service protocol and knowledge of basic salad ...
Embarkation in Copenhagen was the easiest I have ever done in any country. Everyone working that day was friendly, efficient and fantastic. We were on the boat before 12pm, which was surprising.
Boat overall was very clean, and upon ...
We chose a cruise in the Mediterranean as we both like history and culture a lot.
My boyfriend as a passion for the roman empire and I love seeing new places and people and learning about them.
It was our first cruise and we were ...
This was our sixth cruise and the third on the Jade. We have always enjoyed the Jade and really like the upgrades in appearence and facilities that have occurred on the Jade since we last sailed.
We had always wanted to see Ireland ...
This was my 3rd NCL cruise (previous on the Spirit in 2004 and then the Gem in 2013). Went with Sister in law and Brother in law and was afraid it was going to be terrible. Read reviews the week before on how bad the service and food was, ...
We had an amazing time! We had never cruised before but found it a great way to see a lot of things and have loads of fun in a floating resort. The staff were great and the whole experience was enjoyable. We liked our time both on and off ...
LOVED the freestyle version of cruising. So much less stressful! We spent a few days in Honolulu prior to embarkation, so we go to see Diamond Head, Pearl Harbor, lots of shopping, the Zoo, the Aquarium, and the beaches. That was a ...
Hi All! We were on the Gem the week before Memorial Day. The following is my review of the Gem and our experience:
Travel from PA to NY with no issues; parking coupon still works and saved us $70 - whoo hoo!!
Check in was a breeze ...
We chose this cruise because of three things, price, Origination port(Miami), and ports to be visited(We love the Virgin Islands). We had not traveled on NCL for sometime, we had been traveling on Royal Caribbean, We were impressed, and ...
My girlfriend did for the following reasons; ease of entry being in NYC, Length of cruise and destinations, introduce me to cruising, reviews of the Gem.
Trip was great, weather was okay overall, staff was great, restaurants; Italian, ...
