This was my first time cruising and there was a lot I learned on this cruise. First I learned that you should not fly in a few hours before the cruise. That is a no no since your flight may be delayed on American Airlines might take a ... Read more

This was my 3rd Norwegian Cruise. I've taken the Epic, The Getaway and this year the Escape. For all of the people that have written bad reviews, they probably weren't going to have a good time on any cruise. For the people who complained ... Read more

I sailed the Norwegian Getaway from March 29 - April 3rd. It was my first cruise and I went on my own. I chose the Getaway because they had Studio cabins for solo travelers, which is why I flew to Miami for this trip. Overall, I ... Read more

Cons: This cruise line does not compare to Carnival or Royal Caribbean. We will not sail with Norwegian in the future. First, the ship smells terrible; like a hospital cafeteria. The food is average at best and service is not what we ... Read more

The ship: The ship was impressive, pretty good slides for kids, rock climbing, some sort of zip line contraption which I didn't know what it was until the last day, would have liked to try it. One complaint was the lack of elevators, ... Read more

The Sky is a good short trip for anyone. Our embarkation port was Miami. Embarkation was short and sweet. When we boarded we were able to leave our carry on luggage in a safe place with an attendant while we ate lunch. The food ... Read more

If I didn't know any better, I would not have thought I was on the same ship as the one I travelled on in July. What happened? I'm the mildest, most polite and appreciative person. Yet on 2 occasions I was particularly offended by ... 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

This was my 12th NCL Cruise. (3 SUN, 3 SKY, 2 PEARL, 2 EPIC, 1 DAWN) I was at first overwhelmed by the size, but once I got my bearings I really enjoyed the ship. The embarkation was OK, although I feel that Platinum members should be ... Read more

Had a fabulous time on Epic when I did the 15 night Canary Island and Western Med cruise over Christmas and New Year. The only fault I could find was that the ship was just too big, I'm used to smaller with approx 2000 passengers. ... Read more
