The Panama Canal was the highlight of the tour. Other than that, everything was average. The food was the same every day....boring and mundane. The onshore excursions offered by NCL were pricey and not interesting. The worst part is ... Read more

We booked this cruise to celebrate a friend's 60th birthday. Having been on this ship just 2 years ago helped to make this a good choice, especially since they now include alcoholic beverages in the price. Prices have gone up about $100/pp ... Read more

This was a last-minute cruise for us. Suddenly it was October and our long discussed trip to the Bahamas was never accomplished but suddenly fit our availability. The convincing factors were the reasonable price for an inside cabin and ... Read more

I love cruising and heard a lot about the Getaway. I had gone to the Eastern Caribbean previously and wanted to explore The Western Caribbean this time. I liked what I read about the ports. I had very high hopes for this cruise and was ... Read more

We had a very nice week, part of it was of course due to the fantastic late summer weather that we had. The ship has just the right size for us, not too big but not small either. Our roll call meet and greet was great fun, not only for us ... Read more

This was our 1st cruise with NCL. I think we will likely be cruising with another line in the future. Before I go blasting away, I do want to say that for the most part, this is a nice ship with a great crew. Before we even got on the ... Read more

We chose this cruise because of prior great experiences on NCL cruises and we wanted to experience the "fall colors cruise" of New England. The ship has been recently refurbished and is great (except the Venetian dining room ... Read more

We did BTB cruises, Canada, then Bermuda. We had sailed on the Dawn before she was refurbished, and she's definitely been spruced up! They've added a Mexican restaurant that opened July 1, and it's gaining in popularity. We ate there ... Read more

We aren't super experienced cruisers...one previous cruise on Carnival and two previous of Disney. So, when we booked the value priced cruise of the Western Med. we had low expectations. We were very pleasantly surprised. We found the ... Read more

I chose this cruise as an easy port of departure to visit Bermuda. The international crew is friendly. While the ship is well laid out, they have made it a "smoker friendly" environment with indoor smoking in the casino and ... Read more

I sailed on this cruise as someone who cannot eat gluten or dairy. I was very skeptical that the staff and chefs could accommodate my food issues. I was very pleasantly surprised. I had contacted special needs several months in ... Read more

Just returned from my Sept 24 to Oct 1, 2016 Eastern Caribbean cruise. I must say that I was super impressed with how organized this ship is (when compared with other smaller NCL ships I have been on). Very few lines, getting on the ship ... Read more

We wanted to visit Eastern Canada and New England in the fall. We chose this cruise to avoid a lot of driving between the Maritime Provinces and for the fact that it cruised from Boston which eliminated the need to fly. From the Midwest, ... Read more

The main dining rooms and the French restaurant were excellent. The buffet (Raffles) was unremarkable at best. In particular, the pancakes were tough and over-cooked, the “crispy” bacon wasn’t, the oatmeal was runny and ... Read more

Having cruised with NCL 21 times, we LOVE the Freestyle. We did the Escape back to back, as we had some on board credit money, plus the unlimited beverage package. Plus, they offered a $50. credit per shore excursion, if you wished to use ... Read more
