With one minor, yet considerable, drawback this was a great experience! So let's get rid of the bad news first. Whether it was because we are at Gold Latitudes level, or just plain luck, we got speedy prime location in the dining rooms ... Read more

We chose this cruise because it started and ended in Rome, visited ports that we wanted to see on our first Mediterranean cruise, and had good dates and a good price. NCL is not our top choice as a cruise line since we are not much into ... Read more

This was our fourth cruise, all with NCL. Our reasons are good value and freestyle dining. The third passenger in our suite, our adult son, sailed for no fare, except taxes and fees. Embarkation in Civitavecchia was a breeze, as the great ... Read more
