We chose this cruise because of the NCL reputation and the ports and scheduling. We had been on the Sky last year and while we did not have a great experience were encouraged to try a larger and newer ship. In many ways we were quite ... Read more

Absolutely awful. The food was mostly awful. We sent more than one meal back - something we never do - it was that bad. The "Broadway" shows are NOWHERE NEAR bradway quality. You reserve a seat - means nothing - its all first ... Read more

Never again. Let me state I'm a very fluid go-with-the-flow kind of person, late 40s. I like to have a good time and my sense of entitlement begins and ends with what I pay for; no more, no less. That being said: 1. Room was dirty ... Read more

We chose the Alaskan Jewel for the Northwest Passage for our 40th wedding Anniversary. We had a great time. However I want to point out that we would have given a rating of excellent but we were unhappy with a few things. 1. Not ... Read more

What a great cruise. Ship was in excellent/clean condition, service was great, good selection of shore excursions. I think we picked the perfect combination of shore excursions - 3 active (2 snorkel and 1 kayak) and 2 sightseeing. ... Read more

All the countries and cities visited were very nice. Food was good except terrible choices of bread. The Spirit is a nice ship that needs a bit of care - which it will have later this year. Air con cannot be turned off in the cabin ... Read more

We chose Norwegian because of the limited choices of ships going our direction in our time limit in Alaska, offer of premium food/drink package, and opportunity for excursions. However, we will NEVER RECOMMEND THEM AS A VACATION CRUISE ... Read more

Mine and my cousins first time cruising! We flew from Birmingham to Barcelona (a city we have had the pleasure of a 3 day city break so didn't explore further, we wanted to see our Epic ship!) on Ryanair- not an ounce of turbulence and ... Read more

Good cruise. Very small balcony - but good enough. Very narrow hallways - but good enough. Food was great. Second night at sea was seafood at the buffet - don't miss it, the shrimp was great and plentiful. The Tropicana dining room ... Read more

The 7 Day Western Caribbean Cruise from Norwegian was my first ever cruise. I traveled with my husband and several of my in-laws. My husband actually paid for the cruise and all the excursions we had, so I'm not exactly familiar with how ... Read more

Not a big fan of Norwegian Cruise Lines. This is our second cruise with Norwegian. The Getaway is a fairly new and absolutely beautiful ship, but as with my previous experience with Norwegian, the service is horrendous (with exception of ... Read more

Well, I have wanted to do the Western Caribbean trip for a while. Got on the Getaway, but ended up with mixed feelings. Room safety: Don't assume or take it for granted that your belongings are safe, even inside the safe. It is a big ... Read more

Just fabulous!!!!!! My husband and I have been on 5 different cruise lines and for some reason, I was hesitant to try NCL. I booked the cruise on The Getaway and the minute we got on board I knew it would be amazing. Embarkation ... Read more

First time on Norwegian and certainly the last. We strayed from RCCL and learned out lesson. We had a lovely time as ANY cruise is a good cruise; however, NCL can't hold a candle to RCCL!! The food was mediocre at best, the choices in the ... Read more

We chose this cruise because this was our first trip to Hawaii and we wanted to experience as much as we could in 7 days. We had done a 12-night Mediterranean cruise with NCL a couple years ago, and found it to be a great way to see a lot ... Read more

This cruise was relatively disappointing in terms of the ship and the staff, because we had been on NCL's Breakaway and Getaway before. Pride of America can't hold a candle to the newer ships Breakaway and Getaway, and yet Pride of America ... Read more
