We researched several different cruise lines and spoke with many seasoned cruisers before booking our trip on the Escape - and all of that research was well worth it. From the moment we stepped into the cruise terminal until the day we ... Read more

This was our 30th anniversary trip and it was wonderful even if not perfect. We planned this trip with taking "zero excursions" and just enjoying the historic past of each port city - We were not disappointed. NYC is a ... Read more

Norwegian is a terribly inconsistent product. I have been on 3 of their ships, with a different experience each time. The customer service has been consistently poor, however. On the Epic, as with all our cruises, we had a mini suite ... Read more

Took this cruise to use the credit from the last bad NCL cruise. This one was even worse. If you like to get drunk, it may be fine, free liquor. I drink very lightly, so that is not a draw for me. However they don't even have ... Read more

This is our 4th NCL cruise, second on the Breakaway to Bermuda. To be honest we were actually looking at a few other cruise lines but between the price and destinations in October we decided to stick with the devil we knew. After reading ... Read more

We chose this cruise for the ports it was visiting, the inclusions along with the freestyle option. For our honeymoon we wanted to be able to do what we wanted, when we wanted and how we wanted. The freestyle cruising option was great for ... Read more

Arrived a day early in case of flight delays. Stayed in Miami at the Hampton Inn & Suites Miami. Arrived at the cruise port about 10:30 AM. Check-in was easy. Boarding slightly delayed by .5 hour due to a passenger who fell near the ... Read more

This was our 19th cruise and 3rd on NCL. This was the first one on NCL in Europe, however, and on the newly refurbished EPIC. We like freestyle cruising, with open dining, and lots of options to eat. This ship was very well laid ... Read more

Just back from our third cruise, but only now signing up to cruise critic so this is our first review. My wife and I have just returned from a 7 day Mediterranean Cruise on board Norwegian Epic. We are a young married couple in our early ... Read more

My husband and I had a wonderful time on the Gem. We love the intimacy of the smaller ships. I would like to preface this review with the fact that we were staying in The Haven so my review is primarily based on the staff and services we ... Read more

I have sailed with two other cruise ship companies and this by far was the best. Next best was Princess. Stayed in Balcony stateroom that was always clean. Room was smaller than other cruise ships we have been on but had a good size ... Read more

My husband and I decided that for our yearly "Mom and Dad need alone time" trip, we would go on a short cruise WITHOUT the kids (for once). We flew into Vancouver, and stayed at the Pan Pacific Hotel, which was right on top of ... Read more

I thought I would write to let you know how our cruise went for others who might be interested. To put this in context, I'm 55 and my girlfriend is 47, so it's coming from middle-aged people. I know a 25 year old would have a completely ... Read more

This was my 2nd sailing on the NCL Sun. The last was 8 years ago in balcony 9235 and this time just a few doors down in 9244. Surprisingly, the ship is still in pretty good shape. While it does show some age here and there, it's well ... Read more

This was our first cruise. We wanted something different for our 25th anniversary and we chose Norwegian Getaway for its low balcony pricing and ports of call. We decided to rent a car from Tennessee instead of flying down. I prefer ... Read more

Why Norwegian Epic - we chose the Norwegian Epic, as we found a package deal on it with one of the travel agents in Dublin. Both of us have been curious about cruise holidays in recent years, so figured this was a good way time to give it ... Read more

We chose this cruise for the ports of call, and wanted to tray a new line since we have cruised on Carnival, RCCL, Princess and Celebrity for prior vacations. Embarkation and Debarkation were great, probably the only think that was ... Read more

Just back from a 7 night on Breakaway NYC-Bermuda-NYC. We have been on Celebrity cruises eight times now, which we love, but picked NCL because we wanted to go to Bermuda in late September and thought leaving from NYC was a bonus since we ... Read more

I sailed on this cruise as someone who cannot eat gluten or dairy. I was very skeptical that the staff and chefs could accommodate my food issues. I was very pleasantly surprised. I had contacted special needs several months in ... Read more

This was our first time on Norwegian and maybe more importantly our first Caribbean during hurricane season. We stayed in South Beach for 3 days before the cruise began and enjoyed that area very much. While researching various cruises ... Read more

We found this cruise while looking for a trip during the time the golf course my husband works for was closed for repairs. This cruise was the right week at the right price, and all inclusive. I really like the freestyle dining aspect- ... Read more
