After cruising about 6 cruises with Carnival, we decided to try NCL. First of all, let me say how CLEAN this ship is, they strive to keep it that way by encouraging everyone to wash their hands before eating and they remind you on your ... Read more

My husband and I have always enjoyed cruising and just being on the boat but NCL Getaway was the worst boat we have ever been on. The Getaway is one of NCL's mega ships and it is ALL about money. The crew is constantly trying to sell ... Read more

The NCL Star is a beautiful ship and big. My husband and I still did not know our way around after a week. The stateroom, a picture window room, was nicer in person than in pictures. Our stateroom attendant, Victorio, kept it clean and ... Read more

I do not understand why all the bad reviews on this ship. This is my first NCL after many Carnivals. This was so far the best cruise I have ever taken and I have been on many Carnival cruises with no issues. I also was on the Allure right ... Read more

Let me start off by stating that my wife and I have never cruised before and we are both in our 50s. We weren't quite sure what to expect. I value others opinions but also want to make my own decisions, so I sort of take reviews like ... Read more

The Getaway is a good ship and we had a great time. The staff was friendly, the food was delicious and the comedians were great. We went to their house magic show and it was not for us (beware, there is a pre-set dinner menu) but I can ... Read more

Disapointing 50th anniversary cruise. It started when they tore 2 handles off my suite case. Went to guest services and was told they might be able to fix it but didn't,t know. I took pics and took it down that same night and ask if they ... Read more

We had an awesome time! I can't say that I would feel the same way had we not scored the Vibe Beach Passes. Rowman & Roberto (Vibe bartenders) both contributed to our amazing experience. The food was great at Cagney's, Food Republic, ... Read more

Having been on over 20 cruises with a competing cruise line, I was skeptical about venturing out on an older smaller ship as the Spirit. My first impression of the ship was that even in its old age, the ship is magnificent. Our room was ... Read more
