This sailing on the Dawn was our 11th cruise and the 3rd out of New Orleans with this itinerary. This was just a "get away for a week" cruise. We did not go to do things at each port, but instead we got off the ship and shopped. ... Read more

First let me say, this was not our first cruise. My wife and I have been cruising since moving to Florida in 1982. We have sailed from Tampa, Miami, Port Canaveral, and West Palm Beach, but we prefer Tampa because the terminal is only a ... Read more

This was my 2nd cruise ever. Chose this cruise because of the departure location and time of the year. Wanted something warm. The ship was confusing to me even though it was smaller. Had to go up and down stairs too often and this is ... Read more

We had a group of 8 people from our church on this cruise and all but 1 had cruised before. We had more than 12 cruises as a couple and we were not impressed with this cruise and line. This was our first Norwegian and don't plan to take ... Read more

We struggled at first with the size of the ship but after a couple of days we had acclimatized to it. When everyone was on the top deck it was crowded. However, the food was excellent, we dined in the Chinese restaurant, O'Sheen's bar and ... Read more

I will start with dining first. If you like to eat really great food, I suggest you get the (dining package) so as to not be disappointed. Lunch meals were only fair in the dining rooms however if you feel you would like better (in my ... Read more

First time cruising with Norwegian; leery of all the negative reviews. After a few months the crew and staff seem to have found their routine. Found it to be in between Holland America and Carnival in terms of clientele, food, and ... Read more

Overall I had a wonderful cruise. Shame the weather for the first 2 sea days wasn't great! Loved the ship in general. Very contemporary feel, and obviously is brand new. My studio cabin for a solo traveller was a great idea, beautifully ... Read more

First, we started at the beginning of a huge storm, which was no fault of NCL. Seasick despite meds - also not NCL's fault. The cruise critic meet and greet was the best ever! The grab bag was fun. But, as seasoned NCL cruisers, the ... Read more

We will always refer to this as the eating cruise. The ship has 17 different eateries, but over 7 days we only tried 15, missing two extra-cost dining rooms. Best food ever on a ship. Everything else was up to cruise ship standards, ... Read more

We received good service on an old ship that needs refurbishing. There are visible signs of ageing, some rust, dirty carpets, old and simple furniture. This ship lacks the elegance I saw on other cruises. The room service was ... Read more

Just returned from a 7 day cruise on the ESCAPE. I do not understand the constant complaining about "nickel and diming you " on this ship. Much of what you pay xtra for was not even available to you 10 yrs ago. Remember, that ... Read more

My 50th birthday was in September, and for years I have wanted to go to Hawaii. I should also mention that I have been to the other 49 states, so getting to Hawaii was big deal. After taking a cruise to Alaska 15 years ago, I swore I'd ... Read more

This was our eighth cruise and second with Norwegian. However, we will cruise on the smaller ships in future. The Epic advertises lots to see and do, however, to try out the speciality restaurants there is a cover charge plus 18% ... Read more

I think it was a "good" cruise. The service was friendly, the steward very helpful. I enjoyed walking around the 360 degree promenade on Deck 7. It was a small ship so, this cut down on the on board window shopping and ... Read more

After hearing many good comments about a cruise, me and my husband decide to go for the first on a cruise, the Norwegian Pearl. The ship is beautiful, outside and inside, big enough for the amount of people travelling on it. The ... Read more

As a power wheelchair user, there are always challenges. True to form, NCL met them all. I am temporarily unable to put any weight on one foot, so before the end of the first day, we had a ramp to our balcony. The check-in process was ... Read more
