Fabulous speciality restaurants, great food. My only complaint was the seats in the theater are TERRIBLE, small, bar across the back of seat. Had to slouch and if the show was an hour you are crippled. The volume could have been toned ... Read more

I was just on the 12-day Grand Mediterranean from May 7-19 aboard the Norwegian Spirit. It was a DREAM VACATION. While the ship was relatively older and I did complain about having to pay almost double for my stateroom and port fees... the ... Read more

Before you go: Make your dinner and show reservations as early as possible, up to ninety days in advance. We had gotten the “free” specialty restaurant package; when I tried to make dinner reservations for 5:30 there were none ... Read more

Ship is a bit old but it's serviceable. Service staff is very friendly. Food ranges from "Just OK" to "Good", but skip the Sushi restaurant as they are all their own unique "rolls" and not very good. ... Read more

This was our sixth cruise with NCL but the first on one of the bigger ships. We had wondered if we would enjoy it as much as the smaller ships, but after taking a day or so to get used to the layout we found it easy to find ... Read more

This cruise followed a great 6 day holiday in Niagara Falls and New York, so we had already set some high standards before boarding. We were surprised by the decor in our larger than average cabin and in public areas, as we had expected ... Read more

I chose this cruise as an add on to a 10 day Serenade of the Seas one I'd booked, as I like to make my airfare count! I used Jiffy Jeff to get me from FLL airport to Miami port & he offered great service ($15 shared, $45 alone), ... Read more
