We stayed three days (4 nights) in Barcelona prior to starting our cruise and really loved the experience. It meant we had chance to see something of a fantastic city before boarding the ship and had no pressures or worries about getting ... Read more

Was a little concerned after reading several reviews leading up to our cruise. Not sure what they were complaining about as the cruise was great. Embarking and disembarking were a breeze. Arrived at port at 10:30, checked in and sat ... Read more

This is not our first cruise and we would have given an excellent except for the fact that the ship was not really 100% ready for people to cruise on after being in dry dock. I AM glad our trip did not get postponed as a result because ... Read more

We have cruised on Holland America (not happy with them), Royal Caribbean (good, except for embarkation and debarkation nightmares in Port Everglades, Fl.), Carnival (good value), Disney (excellent, but too expensive), Celebrity (good ... Read more

Let me preface this with this is NOT our 1st, 2nd, 3rd, or even our 5th cruise. Norwegian is by far the least customer service orientated cruise line. Our main complaint with Norwegian ....DINNER ! Virtually every night except 1 ... Read more

This was my first cruise, so I do not have anything to compare it to, but we enjoyed this trip and I will do my best to review without having a comparison. We just traveled on the Norwegian Star, it left from Tampa and went ... Read more

As the title states, we sailed each ship during it's inaugural season, and enjoyed each one to differing degrees. Norwegian is renewing it's fleet, which is great, but there appears to be a slight shift in their policies as well, so this ... Read more

The cruise on the Norwegian Jade was the best cruise I have taken so far. I was slightly skeptical before boarding the ship because some of the reviews were shaky. The embarkation process was very smooth, and very fast. We boarded the ... Read more

A huge ship with LOTS of passengers. The room was good and our room steward was great. We did not like to have to get tickets for all of the shows. The theatre could not hold even half of the passengers. The casino took up almost ... Read more

Cons: This cruise line does not compare to Carnival or Royal Caribbean. We will not sail with Norwegian in the future. First, the ship smells terrible; like a hospital cafeteria. The food is average at best and service is not what we ... Read more

In cruising, as in life, some things you like, some you don`t and the NCL Epic is no exception, but the good far outweigh the bad. So, let`s get rid of the negatives straight away. The design is odd; from the well documented ... Read more
