We took this same cruise last year on a very tired ship. We were told she was scheduled for a refit and figured it would be nice to see the changes. The ship was very nicely updated BUT was staffed with a new crew! The boarding process in ... Read more

This was our third cruise on NCL and our seventh overall. We are both early 50's. I think this was our best cruise ever. Everything was really nice. Flew in to Vancouver the morning of the cruise and had an NCL bus transfer to the ... Read more

We were given a "free" cruise and had always wanted to see Alaska. The cabin was very nice. The steward was barely adequate. The ship was comfortable with lots of options for things to do and see. The shows we saw were ... Read more

With one minor, yet considerable, drawback this was a great experience! So let's get rid of the bad news first. Whether it was because we are at Gold Latitudes level, or just plain luck, we got speedy prime location in the dining rooms ... Read more

We picked this cruise for a second time for the fun and for not having to fly to Miami. The Horseshoe Bay pink sand beach is by far the best our family has experienced anywhere, better than Hawaii, Australia, US, Bahamas or even the ... Read more

We actually did a back 2 back cruise with 9 days Baltic area and then 14 days Norway's North Cape. It was our first back to back and by far, our longest cruise. We chose NCL and the Star in particular because we had recently sailed on ... Read more

Went to the Baltics 2 years ago and loved it so wanted to go back. The NCL Star is a lovely ship . Couldn't fault it at all. We had an overnight stay in Copenhagen before embarkation. Copenhagen is a beautiful city and very easy to get ... Read more

This was our 3rd time on the Epic and due to my wifes 70th birthday we decided to try the Haven suites. The cruise itself was very enjoyable and up to the usual Epic standards, however the "Haven Experience" is not worth the ... Read more

I chose this cruise because I had $250 deposit from a previous cruise to spend. I should have let it go because this cruiseline has changed its entertainment, food, and game policies. We were charged $24.99 each if we wanted lobster, ... Read more

1. We are not new to cursing, so we are familiar with cruise enbarkation; the embarkation on the NCL Breakaway was a fiasco. Luckily we booked a semi-suite or (what ever they call it on NCL) this is an up grade. They said we could bring ... Read more

This is the first time out of 45 cruises that we took a May cruise. We needed the rest and relaxation and felt attracted to the two days at sea at the beginning and end of the cruise. As well, we know that Norwegian shows are superbly ... Read more

The Norwegian Peal has very small rooms and the ship needs to be refurbished badly. The bath sinks are cracked and equipped with kitchen faucets. Large paint chips were sheering off the pipes into the floor on the balcony, and it was ... Read more

This was our first time on NCL, and sadly, is definately our last. It is the first cruise out of six that I was happy to see the end of the cruise. The embarkation and debarkation was much faster than we were used to. Also, the UBP ... Read more

We were a group of seven retired relatives and chose the Epic for our cruise. Of course, we had the UBP and all were excited about the journey. My wife and I had cruised more than eight weeks on other lines so one can say we are not ... Read more

I chose this cruise for several reasons. It was a multigenerational trip which included my 87 year old mom, my brother and my 20 year old daughter. The trip was a Mother's Day gift to my mom. The destination was not important to her as ... Read more

This is a great way to see and get an overview of the Hawaiian Islands. Overall cruise was great and we saw a lot! Service as has been reported was mixed. We were exposed to a lot of "new" service crew members and some tried ... Read more
