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 ... Read more

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 ... Read more

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 ... Read more

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 ... Read more

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. ... Read more

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 ... Read more

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 ... Read more

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 ... Read more

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. ... Read more

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 ... Read more

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 ... Read more

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, ... Read more

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 ... Read more
