With the exception of the customer service area which was very good, the other service areas had no time for you unless they were taking your money. Sometimes to the point of being rude. The restaurant food was average, they would not ... Read more

First time cruisers, picked the Spirit primarily on price. Was a bit concerned initially by reviewers who wrote off the ship as being old and tired. Although we had an inside family cabin, we were happy with the size and condition of ... Read more

We chose this cruise on the advice of our travel agent, after we decided to go to Hawaii for my 60th birthday, and after Pearl Harbor and not being avid surfers we had no idea what was on offer! We were brilliantly surprised....... the ... Read more

We really enjoyed the cruise. The food was very good. I'm not sure if I'd go back to Cagney's Steakhouse or La Cucina as it seemed to be the same as elsewhere. The service staff were excellent- bright- cherry-helpful & funny! Just ... Read more

Norwegian has got to be the top of the heap for cruises. The Pride of America is just the right size ship. You're fairly near to all dining areas and entertainment venues. Excellent Specialty restaurants, especially Cagney's Steakhouse. ... Read more

My friend and I chose Norwegian based on our cruise to Alaska last year on the same line. We were very pleasantly surprised by the size of the mini-suite, especially the spacious bathtub and shower. The staff and crew were all wonderful ... Read more

Our cruising experience was badly marred by difficulties finding our way around. Our cabin was on deck four and not accessible from all lifts to deck four. We still can't figure out why not. There are 3 lifts. When waiting it is clear what ... Read more

We went with two other couples and we are all over 60. It was nice to find a chilled bottle of champagne in our room because we have reached the silver level after just a handful of NCL cruises. After we boarded, I was delighted to ... 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

I chose this particular cruise because of the itinerary. I had never cruised Norwegian before, although I have been in 45+ cruises. I am spoiled by Celebrity and also like RCCL. This ship, on which Americans were a small minority (not in ... Read more

We wanted to experience a full transit of the canal and booked this trip with friends. We had a great time and the canal experience was unforgettable in every way. The ship is beautiful and the staff was very good. NCL has some ... Read more

We chose this cruise because it was closer to my husband's temporary assignment in New Orleans. We have cruised on several cruise lines, and this was by far one of our favorites. The embarking and dismemberment process went smoothly and ... Read more

We really enjoyed this cruise. It was a great break from winter in New Jersey. The food was great. It fell short on activities while you were on board. Not enough to do. The entertainment was the same. We have been on this cruise ship ... Read more

The food on this cruise was really Epic. The steak was so tender it could be cut with a fork and the flavor was outstanding. The last night of the cruise was prime rib night and the flavor was wonderful and the rib was cooked blood red, ... Read more

Norwegian acknowledges their mistakes in this ship's design. The Epic has no deck for walking or running! I would never sail on this ship again due to it having no place to walk around outside and stretch your legs. Cagney's, ... Read more

We have been on this ship three times and again we were not disappointed. Granted it is in need of refurbishment but this didn't stop our enjoyment. We sailed from Barcelona where we have been many times and know the city well. Embarkation ... 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
