This was our eighth cruise, and we chose it because it is only and hour away from our home, and we think we got a very good price for a mini suite. Unfortunately, it was our least favorite cruise of all, which include some very small ... Read more

We have taken this Sky cruise several times. We use it as a weekend getaway from the office. The staff is always very courteous and professional; boarding and disembarking has always been painless. We always use the gourmet ... Read more

I'm 73 years old so my better cruising days are behind me. NCL is a good cruise line. We have sailed on several others cruise lines, Celebrity, Princess, Holland America, and NCL is on par with those. We have taken about 14 cruises in the ... Read more

Embarkation for a wheel chaired person was a joke. There were none at the curb, and an elevator ride and a long walk to the check in area was the only way to begin the journey. With an excuse that they were "short of wheel chairs that ... Read more

We picked this line and ship based on other reviews and the fact Norwegian was including alcohol and specialty dining with the package (and based on other cruises, it ended up saving us about $1,200 in the end). Some of the reviews were ... Read more

The NCL staff are great and it is hard work dealing with people who have drinks packages and a sense of entitlement. If you see the photos of the management, there are very few women. I like to spend my money with organisations that ... Read more

We booked two weeks before sailing and got an enclosed balcony cabin for the first time - we loved it! Ultra quiet and quite roomy. Storage space was limited, but okay for a 7 (or 10) day cruise. Our flight was delayed on sail day, so ... Read more

The public needs to know when the advertising is deceptive. We were intrigued and thrilled to see the Four FREE offers made available when we booked our second cruise in the Haven. We still enjoy the Haven level offered on the ... Read more

I chose this cruise for a last-minute escape from NYC; not for the ports or even the vessel itself. That said, this brand new ship is not always a user-friendly experience. I had a guarantee stateroom assigned by the line, so bear that ... Read more

Went to the Eastern Caribbean. Epic was a very large ship with over 4000 guests. For the most part we did enjoy ourselves, but no thanks to the help . The shows were very good. Most bartenders were top notch. The pub service was ... Read more

We are NCL cruisers but have only been on smaller ships. This was our first time to cruise on a massive ship so were excited by the anticipation of it. We cruised a B2B from Barcelona to Port Canaveral, then remained on board for the next ... Read more

This was our first cruise and on it we celebrated our 42nd wedding anniversary. We had a balcony stateroom (10552) and would recommend this as it gave us a little more room, allowed fresh air in the room and was great to view the sights ... Read more

Just arrived from a week at the Epic. First trip out of Canaveral in FL. A big mess boarding due to being the first time out from this port. Don't really blame them for this since the port people were trying to figure out the new software ... Read more

We originately booked Norwegian Spirit for Dec. 3, 2016 and was advised the ship had been chartered and we would have to select another ship that had the same itinerary and chose the Epic. The ship was big with 4100 passengers and we ... Read more

Embarkation and Debarkation went very well. Cruise Critic Meet and Greet was fun and informative. Cabin was smaller than on other ships but comfortable. Our room steward was just ok. No fun animals...just one that she made out of ... Read more

The Norwegian Breakaway 11/6/2016 review Embarkation went smoothly and the sail-away party was too cold for us to be outdoors. Beside we have gone under that bridge many times. We had to take a different ship to go through the canal. ... Read more

Embarkation on the Getaway was rather lengthy, until my roommate noted that I was a gold member/didn't realize that and there was a very short line for those folks. Keep your eyes peeled for your status as it will save you easily 45 ... Read more

Overall this was a good cruise.. I've already made a deposit to take a cruise on Norweigian Escape next year. Still there were several things that could have made it a bad cruise, but none did. One thing is that the theater is at the ... Read more

the cruise comes out of n.y makes it very easy for us. There are things we don't like about N.C.L. One is that each time we go on the cruise we find out that less food items are available either at the complimentary restaurants or on the ... Read more
