Perfect adult getaway! Not for kids or families though. This is not the biggest, nicest ship I've been on, but great drinks that are part of the cruise price! This is the first time my bar bill didn't exceed the cost of my cruise, lol. ... Read more

We chose to get married in Bermuda, and sailing on the Dawn to get there seemed convenient and cost effective for us. We ended up bringing over 60 of our friends and family aboard with us. In a word it was AMAZING!!!!! This was for me, and ... Read more

We sailed Epic August 10-17, 2016 and this was our second cruise. Choose NCL because of flexible dining and beverage package. Liked the idea of not having to carry our luggage from city to city in Europe - with a cruise you can get off at ... Read more

It was a fully Diamond points funded cruise to a destination we wanted to see. Alaska is an outstanding destination. The excursions were excellent. On board we were treated like royalty and had lovely, comfortable, clean accommodations. ... Read more

I have been on a lot of vacations that are all inclusive. The Norwegian Sky was truly all inclusive. All the liquor was top shelf and the accessibility to all bars was great. The service was fabulous. They made you feel you were paying $15 ... Read more

Do NOT book a cruise through Norwegian. We have cruised several times through various cruise lines and they have the worst customer service we have ever experienced. They canceled our port in Skagway and only let us know two days before ... Read more

I chose the sky for several reasons. We were taking the kids so I wanted fewer sail days and more excursion days. Also they off Butlers if you stay in the Suites! Let me say we have never stayed in a suite so I cannot compare it to other ... Read more

This cruise was for our honeymoon (age 29 and 32). It was our first cruise and far exceeded our expectations. Having read lots of reviews where people talked about the 'dated' ship, we expected it to be pretty bad. However, I really don't ... Read more

All in all for the price the cruise was really good! I didn't pay too much at all so the things that might have bothered me otherwise didn't. I was in the Solo Cabin so I also believe my experience was different from the non solo. ... Read more

We just returned from a 6 night cruise on the Norwegian Escape. This was our first cruise with NCL, and overall was a pretty good experience that had the potential to be a great one if we had been more familiar with their practices. ... Read more

This was our 5th cruise on NCL, Boston to Bermuda. We live in the city so it doesn't get much more convenient, 20 minutes to the terminal, drop your bags, check in and you're on vacation. This was last minute, booked 10 days before ... Read more

The cruise was really nice. We had a great time. The open bar is prefect to have drinks all the time. We hung out in the pool every afternoon and the wait staff would keep coming to fill our orders. Since the drinks are included certain ... Read more

This was our 3rd year in a row on the same boat with the same destinations (Port Canaveral, Great Stirrup Cay and Nassau). We chose the cruise primarily because we like the convenience of leaving and returning to NYC and we like the Gem. ... Read more

Picked up this cruise as a fantastic late bargain and were thoroughly pleased with our choice. Our first cruise was taken on the Spirit 10 years ago, so it had a little significance for us. That said the experience of those ten years did ... Read more

We chose NCL because it has the reputation as one of the higher end cruise lines based on reviews and general information gathering. This vacation was for my husband and I and was our very first cruise. We had enough information on cruises ... Read more
