Our cabin on the 13th deck was wonderful! I couldn't hear our neighbors or anything. I would go for this type of cabin again. When walking past the cabins with a balcony, you could hear them "whistle" and "whine", My ... Read more

Norwegian Pearl is a pearl of a ship, she is clean, friendly and full of really good vibes. We went on a 12 day cruise and just returned today. I have learned that having a good cruise is having a great ship not just the port of calls. ... Read more

This is an average cruise ship with small rooms. (Read my room review) The food was decent and complimentary Juices, lemonade and water when dining. They confiscate your wine at check in (San Pedro) as they have NO SYSTEM for counting and ... Read more

We just returned from our 2nd cruise on the Escape and had a great time! Unique for this ship is the fun water-slide Aqua Racer where you ride on a tube. (Didn't try the drop slides, so will leave those for others to tell you about.) ... Read more

Like Norwegian's freestyle dress code and dinner anytime you want. Shows in the theater at night were great. Get Down Tonite (70's, 80's 90's music) was great. Food was good, hit and miss, sometimes a good meal, then other times not so ... Read more

NCL, long famous for "Nicole and dime" charges has absolutely outdone itself. As veteran cruisers (40+) we can say without a doubt that this is the end for us and NCL. Completely overpriced drinks (Scotch and water $15.00) and ... Read more

This was our first cruise with NCL chosen as it was a 'Cruise with John' cruise. (John Cooper is a presenter of the TV cruise programme Vision Cruise). The Epic had also been recommended to us by fellow passengers on an earlier P&O ... Read more

We chose NCL Epic because of the freestyle way of cruising. This gave us the freedom to do as we liked when we liked and dressing casual while doing it. We found the ship to be very big, with plenty of restaurant's and bars. We had the ... Read more

We booked this cruise almost a year ago for our honeymoon. You would think it was the maiden voyage since this ship is so disorganized. About a few hours after we boarded the ship, Norwegian informed us we couldn't go to Bermuda due to ... Read more

The ship is beautiful however it's so large as to be unmanageable. Too many people, too many lines for everything, for breakfast on the first day we had to wait 20 minutes to get a table. There are too few staff and they are overworked. ... Read more

This cruise was a fantastic value in terms of what we paid for cabin & gratuities. We took Amtrak from Buffalo to Penn Station, which was fun, relaxing and much less expensive than flying. We are 50 & 51 years old, fit, active, ... Read more
