Summary: Let me cut to the chase, by the time we left the ship, we had already booked two more cruises on NCL. However, that is not to say NCL and the Jade is without flaws. But for the money, my DW and I felt our 3/12 NCL Jade cruise ... Read more

Hello All, I've been on 8 cruises before and this was my 9th. I was on the breakaway Dec of 2014 and had a great time. On that cruise I did not experience any of the inconvience as I did on this trip. I got engaged and figured I'd take ... Read more

Recently returned from another cruise on the Gem. We stayed on the 14th floor where we had access to The Haven. The Haven is wonderful, however we had a few rooms occupied by children under 12 and they took over the pool and Jacuzzi area ... Read more

I usually do not bother to write a review, however this trip deserves one. We chose the norweigian escape because it is the newest and one of the largest cruise ships, and it was going to stop in the Bahamas. I was going to Alantis! Yah! ... Read more

First of all this was our first ever cruise experience and we really had no idea if it was for us or not so have absolutely nothing to compare it to. It was also our very first holiday without the kids so 10 days just the two of us could ... Read more

I had the pleasure of sailing with my husband on the Norwegian breakaway for the 2cd time. The ship although HUGE was not as crowded as last year. We just got lucky I guess. Where do I start? Elevators crowded first day so expect ... Read more

Ship looked immaculate, washy washy in abundance so hygiene standards maintained. Easy embarkation and even easier disembarkation, best ever. For such a large ship it seemed crowded indoors which is unusual, space was at a premium, ... Read more
