We chose Norwegian Cruise Lines because of the huge party we saw going on at a specific port to welcome guests back to the ship. We wanted to be a part of that party!!! The embarkation process was 20 minutes from door to ship. We ... Read more

Would have been 4.5 but that isn't an option. NCL has definitely upped it's game. Thankfully, the old NCL is dead and gone. The entire cruise staff was the friendliest and most helpful that we have ever encountered. The cruise ... Read more

Overall, a great experience and I would not hesitate to do it again. Getaway is a beautiful ship. The main indoor atrium is called 678 Ocean Place and this is where you will find a lot of the entertainment as well as the nicer ... Read more

I've read a lot of reviews before this trip. Some of them had me very concerned about this trip. Turned out to be a really great trip! Everything on the ship was great. Nassau was not that great. Also keep in mind NONE of the shops open ... Read more

The Getaway was our 3rd cruise this year and by far our favorite!! The service was fantastic and our cabin steward, Rhey made us happy everyday with our adorable towel animals and clean room (balcony room, mid-ship room #14782). We only ... 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

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

At the end of April, 2016 we took a Western Caribbean cruise on the Norwegian Getaway, booked a Mini Suite, and had so much fun that we wanted to cruise again. We originally booked a Mini Suite on the Norwegian Escape, Norwegian's newest ... Read more

I cruise for the first time with NCL after being on Carnival twice previously. The Ship is gorgeous as its pretty new to the sea. The adult pool felt a little small for the size of the ship. The cabins were decent sized. (I had a balcony). ... Read more

We had a wonderful trip on the Norwegian Star to the Baltic capitals. We went for our honeymoon and everything was top notch. We have cruised before and found that this crowd of older adults and very few children was the best. Ports: ... Read more

We booked the 12 day Denali Rail explorer. The cruise part of our trip was great. We picked up the ship in Vancouver and disembarked in Seward Alaska. The ship was small but offered up everything you would need. Nightly entertainment was ... Read more

As first time cruisers we were recommended to the Epic by a friend. We didn't know what to expect but can honestly sum the experience up in one word "WOW". The moment we arrived for boarding we were overwhelmed by the size ... Read more

This was our 3rd time on the Epic and due to my wifes 70th birthday we decided to try the Haven suites. The cruise itself was very enjoyable and up to the usual Epic standards, however the "Haven Experience" is not worth the ... 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

We chose this cruise for our anniversary. I have taken 8 cruises before. 1 on Carnival and 7 on RC the last one being Freedom of the seas. It took way to long to embark the ship. One hour and a half. Once on board it was very unorganized. ... Read more

I don't know how anyone could give this cruise a bad review. Yes, be prepared to spend some money, but it's a once in a lifetime trip (may be twice). We were on our honeymoon (2nd marriage at 53). We were in cabin 9094 (mid ship balcony). ... Read more

This cruise was taken in conjunction with my wedding. We were married prior to the ship departing Miami aboard the NCL Escape. It was a small wedding with 19 guests (no children) and it was amazing. The staff at NCL took very good care of ... 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

We absolutely loved our time on the Breakaway! Embarkation: We are from Syracuse NY - took Yankee Trials from the Albany area directly to the ship. The luggage went on the bus and we next saw it in our cabin. We were directed to ... Read more
