My husband and I just returned from a week on the Norwegian Breakaway (7 days to Bahamas from NYC). We've traveled to all-inclusive resorts or to time share units in the past, but were 1st time cruisers. I think we're hooked! Our ... Read more

Wanted to try ncl. Was told they were good. Found drinks expensive, service slow, dinner service slow in main rooms and overall, really expensive ship. They did give us great service at dinner after getting mad one night because it ... Read more

We had sailed on Regal Princess last year and had a wonderful time. As soon as we returned, we booked a cruise with our kids on Carnival for March 2018. After a few weeks, we decided we didn't want to wait two years before sailing again, ... Read more

The cruise we chose was a 14 day Western & Eastern Caribbean. In fact it was two one week cruises and we had to disembark at the end of the first week and then embark for the second cruise. This process was slow and cumbersome, not ... Read more

This was our 13th cruise with NCL and our 3rd cruise on Epic. The other 2 cruises on Epic were in the Mediterranean, this was our 1st Epic cruise to the Caribbean. We found this cruise to be a quite different. The venues were all a lot ... 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

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
