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

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

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

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

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
