We took a short cruise on the Sky last year and loved it, so we decided to try a longer cruise on a bigger ship. This cruise was perfect. There were a lot of people on board, but the ship never felt crowded. There was plenty to do, ... Read more

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

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

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
