Being pretty avid cruisers, we chose our cruise for the ship rather than the ports. We travel on all the "mid-scale" cruise lines (Carnival, Royal Caribbean, Norwegian) and I have personally been on most of the "next step ... Read more

This New ship is ok for first timers.  I have not talked to many people who are repeat cruisers on this ship.  Way too crowded.  Get used to walking lots and use the stairs.  Elevator lines are disgraceful ...... too ... Read more

The reception desk clerk was rude when we complained about the cabin during embarkation,she stated that it's only for sleeping and the other clerk said that's what you paid for, $5,300 including taxes for an inside quad cabin with 3 beds ... Read more

All in all for the price the cruise was really good! I didn't pay too much at all so the things that might have bothered me otherwise didn't. I was in the Solo Cabin so I also believe my experience was different from the non solo. ... Read more

This was our 5th cruise on NCL, Boston to Bermuda. We live in the city so it doesn't get much more convenient, 20 minutes to the terminal, drop your bags, check in and you're on vacation. This was last minute, booked 10 days before ... Read more

This is the third time on the Breakaway and my fourth time to Bermuda. I have been on 13 cruises with seven of them on NCL. I like NCL even with their problems. This trip was different though. I had a major medical emergency last ... Read more

Sailed July 2016
Being our first cruise as a family I was very reluctant to go on the Norwegian Epic due to the low rating I noticed on different sites but that was too late as I had already paid the full trip amount and wasn't ready to bare the ... Read more

We loved our experience! The ship, and service, and food, and destinations were all great. Be warned - Norwegian is completely aggressive in trying to empty your wallet before the cruise is over. We made a game out of resisting the ... Read more

We chose this cruise because of the ports and the July sailing. It was a wonderful cruise and we were very pleased with NCL, not having ever sailed with them. Have been on three Princess cruises prior. We loved Copenhagen and the people ... Read more

This was my first cruise so will perhaps mostly be of use to those who have not cruised before. First the company, NCL, Norwegian Cruise Lines. My impression of certain level of corporate sloppiness. On the website, and emails, some ... Read more

Picked up this cruise as a fantastic late bargain and were thoroughly pleased with our choice. Our first cruise was taken on the Spirit 10 years ago, so it had a little significance for us. That said the experience of those ten years did ... Read more

Chose this cruise mainly because of itinerary, price and timing. Had been in Med before & toured Rome, Athens, Sorento & Pompeii - but this time took professional tour of Rome so saw more sites. Went to some countries we probably ... Read more

My wife had had breast surgery 3 weeks before the cruise and we wanted to get away from home and just relax. We had been to Alaska before and enjoyed ourselves. This time, we just wanted to relax and not feel any pressure to sight-see ... Read more

Mine and my cousins first time cruising! We flew from Birmingham to Barcelona (a city we have had the pleasure of a 3 day city break so didn't explore further, we wanted to see our Epic ship!) on Ryanair- not an ounce of turbulence and ... Read more

This was our 2nd Alaska cruise on the Jewel. We weren't able to cruise through Tracy Arm, so the sights were not quite as spectacular. We did pass a pod of whales and that was great! Ketchikan and Skaggway are always great for shopping. ... Read more

I had always wanted to do the Alaska cruise and so we decided to go with NCL. This was a 7 night cruise starting from and terminating at Seattle. The embarkation was pretty smooth and the ship was sparkling, it is 10 years old but ... Read more

We chose this cruise because this was our first trip to Hawaii and we wanted to experience as much as we could in 7 days. We had done a 12-night Mediterranean cruise with NCL a couple years ago, and found it to be a great way to see a lot ... Read more

We chose this cruise because two couples in our party had never cruised before. We were able to keep the expenses lower without having to add air. Our embarkation experiences went as we expected and our sail away was entertaining. ... Read more

Great value for the drinkers. When I booked I did not know it was all inclusive. Mostly, people were responsible but there are always a few. We kept running into these two drunks who insulted just about everybody (including my wife twice) ... Read more
