We just completed a 15 day cruise in South America from Buenos Aires to Valparaiso. We were two couples; my wife and I had an Owners Suite and our friends were in a Penthouse Suite. These suites not only come with a list of perks such as ... Read more

I have read and noted other comments, both before we sailed and since we arrived home; from other travellers on the Norwegian Spirit. I am not able to comment whether RCI is better, or bigger ships are more spectacular; this review is for ... Read more

Fantastic entertainment! From comedians to singing and dancing throughout the ship in various venues. Their main stage productions (Million Dollar Quartet and Burn the floor) were as close to Broadway as you can get. And as an added bonus ... Read more

We are latitude members and had purchased a future. Since we were familiar with the NCL itinerary and had been with NCL on another ship less than a year before, we felt comfortable scheduling the cruise on the Epic. Boy were we amazed at ... Read more

Excellent cruise on a big ship! Disembarkation was a pain. It took a long time. Mainly because of the port being closed so possibly not the cruiselines fault! I felt they put the safety of guests first. Would recommend this cruiseline for ... Read more

Not a bad deal for a spur of the moment decision. Our room ended up in the rear of the ship which was great. The balcony was a bit more private than the ones on the sides of the ship. Although we have done the Bahamas' thing too many ... Read more

This was the fourth cruise we have taken, and would rate this cruise quite low, in comparison. We had cruised on 3000+ passenger ships, previously, but that should not account for the difference in experience! 1) The ship is not well ... Read more

This was my 8th cruise, first on NCL. The Good: Love freestyle dining, that is a huge win. Will totally go on NCL for that alone. This ship was a beauty, my stateroom and balcony was lovely. Outside areas were great, loved the quiet ... Read more

If you like rush hour traffic and gridlock, you will get a taste of it on the Breakaway. There are many good things about this ship, which I will detail below, but the long lines and waits put a damper on some of the trip. We have always ... Read more

Long Review We booked this cruise last minute. Literally within one week of sailing. We live on the West Coast so it took some fancy footwork to get everything arranged. At first we thought we would try an inside cabin guarantee. It ... Read more

This was our third cruise (my wife's fourth) on NCL, and we are great fans of the freestyle approach that offers flexibility and convenience in dining selections. For us, the larger the ship the better! Not that we enjoy crowds, but we ... Read more

We chose this cruise because of the convenience of Port Canaveral and the ports of call. The Epic, while not the most beautiful ship, offered lots of dining and entertainment options. I think it is better suited for couples. The best ... Read more

This was our sixth cruise, and our 4th on NCL. We have sailed on the Star twice and once on the Jade. After cruising with Carnival and Princess, we discovered freestyle cruising and have not left NCL since. This was our first eastern ... Read more

Overall it was a great cruise with the exception of the 2 storms we hit. The pool was closed for 2 days (again due to the weather). Overall the service was great. We were in a forward Suite and were treated wonderfully! We had a large ... Read more

We flew to Miami a day before embarkation to be safe and because we are complete newbies at cruising and even flying commercial airlines. Our hotel was near the Miami elevated train, and passes were only $5 or so for a day, so we explored ... Read more

Norwegian Sky is a great ship: old & outdated - yes, but having been a Hawaiian ship refurbished and re-assigned to the Caribbean it has a much different character than the newer NCL ships. The staff was friendly, & the food was ... Read more

Just the wife and I on this one, we have no interest in New Orleans itself. Its just a very convenient hour and a half away. Getting on and off the ship is a breeze here with very easy going customs people and lots of helpful porters. ... Read more
