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

This was our second time on the POA as Hawaii is a favorite destination for us. It offers the best itinerary and is the most relaxing way to see all the islands, offering overnights in Maui and Kauai, two ports on Hawaii, and an hours ... Read more

We chose this cruise for the itinerary. First time with NCL. Website not very informative for planning ahead, apart from full info on the (very expensive) excursions. No prices for the spa, bar. Stateroom was roomy and bathroom was ... 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

You've read the mixed reviews good and bad so here's mine. Whatever issues the Jade had, yes they were admittedly real according to the staff, those issues are long gone. This is a great cruise, well done by a hard working crew. Do ... Read more

The Sky is a good short trip for anyone. Our embarkation port was Miami. Embarkation was short and sweet. When we boarded we were able to leave our carry on luggage in a safe place with an attendant while we ate lunch. The food ... Read more

This is the second time that we have had aggravation before we started the cruise. We feel that NCL cheated us because of their pricing policy. Even though we are “gold” Latitude members, it means absolutely nothing. NCL should ... Read more
