Not a bad deal for a spur of the moment decision. Our room ended up in the rear of the ship which was great. The balcony was a bit more private than the ones on the sides of the ship. Although we have done the Bahamas' thing too many ... Read more

We chose this cruise because of the itinerary. We had never been to South America or south of the equator. EMBARKATION: Awful No porters to take our bags. We stood in line in the hot sun to check in our bags. Then we were given a ... Read more

Long Review We booked this cruise last minute. Literally within one week of sailing. We live on the West Coast so it took some fancy footwork to get everything arranged. At first we thought we would try an inside cabin guarantee. It ... Read more

This was our sixth cruise, and our 4th on NCL. We have sailed on the Star twice and once on the Jade. After cruising with Carnival and Princess, we discovered freestyle cruising and have not left NCL since. This was our first eastern ... Read more

We are not reviewing every aspect of the cruise. Overall, we had a good time. The positives were the entertainment with easy seating, the pool with ample sun lounges and the ports of call. The embarkation was easy and "The Easy ... Read more

Cruise was chosen because of length and destination. Buffet food was delicious, but ice cream machines were not always functioning. It would have been nice to have an ice cream machine near the pool. Coffee was too strong for our taste. ... Read more

This was our eighth cruise on Norwegian. We chose this one because it was the right length, time of year, and departure port of New York meaning we would not have to fly somewhere. We opted for the Haven penthouse 12706, forward and ... Read more

Went to relax. Note that library/game room is very tiny! Much smaller than any other ship I have been one. Usually there are two rooms, but this is only one and room for only 4 small card tables. Smoke in casino bothersome to ... Read more

Chose this cruise to get a break from our cold local weather. Check in was Quick and easy, as it was almost 4 PM. Had the steward separate the twin beds which opened up the middle of the cabin. First time in a non balcony room, but it ... Read more

We bought this cruise because we wanted to find some warm weather in our winter. I think we were unlucky, the itinery called for two sea days which were both a wash out. Cozumel Mexico was very disappointing as was Ocho Rios. The highlight ... Read more

I cannot recommend the Norwegian Gem! The ship is recently refurbished but HVAC brought on asthma/bronchitis. Maybe mold circulating? We expected an inclusive experience, instead we felt extra costs were at every turn. We had ... Read more

We enjoyed our cruise but see the Norwegian changes as going down hill. We have taken several (probably 5) Norwegian cruises and they just don't offer the service they use to. This was our first time on a larger ship and I think we ... Read more

We are a couple from the Mid-west (age 53 & 62), no kids, retired and Platinum latitude members. When we booked this cruise as our winter getaway, we did not have much knowledge of South America. We arrived in Santiago 2 days ... Read more

This was our first time cruising with NCL. We saw this cruise advertised and though it would be nice to get away from the UK for some winter sun. The package we chose included ultimate drinks package and four dine around options. The ... Read more

Prior cruise on Epic 4 yrs ago was outstanding. On this cruise cabins seemed smaller. Bar staff was missing in action. Often had to search for server or go to bar. In casino server would take order from person next to me, ignore me. I am ... Read more

1st I need to stipulate we're loyal to RCL cruisers (Diamond level), so we gave up lots of perks (get that NCL, free perks) to give NCL a go. We booked last minute to sail with family who are NCL enthusiasts. I kept a running log of ... Read more

First time with NCL, and its more casual style, which generally worked well. One criticism though is the reluctance of NCL to give you any information about the ship! Deck plans are strictly for the website, and almost unprintable, and ... Read more

We chose this cruise because it was convenient to leave and return to NY and it provided the number of days we were looking to "get away". The rooms are very very very small. The TV is the size of my computer monitor ... Read more

Taking a winter cruise in January out of New York is not very smart, but is a getaway from winter in the Midwest. Cabin was good except for noises and smells at night. Entertainment was a disappointment in comparison to previous NCL ... Read more
