Sailed November 2016
I chose this cruise for the itinerary. I had not been to 6 of the 8 islands. The balcony room was a little cramped and I did not like that there were no drawers in the room for clothing - just shelves. The crew was hit or miss for service ... Read more

I should have taken a cue from the long lines we stood in to even get checked in and onto the ship. My 2 daughters and I had a mini balcony suite (with emphasis on mini). It was tiny. I cannot imagine what the interior staterooms ... Read more

The NCL staff are great and it is hard work dealing with people who have drinks packages and a sense of entitlement. If you see the photos of the management, there are very few women. I like to spend my money with organisations that ... Read more

The cruise is a standard South/West Caribbean-bound one week and we embarked in Miami on Nov 13. Ship is full, if just before the peak season. I arrived the cruise terminal at 1pm, a busy time, and yet I was already in my cabin in a mere ... Read more

My husband surprised me for my 50th birthday with this cruise combined with 2 nights in Hollywood Beach. We arrived at the port around 11:30 am and checked in with no wait. We waiting about 20 minutes before they started boarding ... Read more

First time on NCL and was with a single's group of 420. The ship is huge! I have been on Princess and could find my way around, but this was over the top huge. Ship was nice and I had the Specialty dining and alcohol package, so that ... Read more

I love the Halloween cruise and this is the first time I cruised on Norwegian ever. I must said I found this Halloween cruise to be the best. The theme parties were so much fun. The fun was great and the best of all was the Tropicana ... Read more

I chose this cruise because of the convenience of sailing from a local port of call (NYC) on one of NCL's newest, largest, and most amenable to a single cruiser (with their Studio rooms). Although I was unable to secure a Studio room ... Read more

Embarkation on the Getaway was rather lengthy, until my roommate noted that I was a gold member/didn't realize that and there was a very short line for those folks. Keep your eyes peeled for your status as it will save you easily 45 ... Read more

We chose this cruise to travel to Cabo, Mazatlan, and Puerto Vallarta with our niece and her husband as well as our adult daughter. The Le Cirque Bijou show was the BEST show I have seen on ANY cruise. The comedian and magician shows ... Read more

Norwegian Pearl is a pearl of a ship, she is clean, friendly and full of really good vibes. We went on a 12 day cruise and just returned today. I have learned that having a good cruise is having a great ship not just the port of calls. ... Read more

I wanted to cruise the Mediterranean as a solo passenger. I am very thankful that Norwegian sees that market and provides studios. The cost was $899 for 7 nights (NO ridiculous single supplement charge like other cruise lines!). The ... Read more

Well I am a foodie plus I am single. I did not want to Shack up with a stranger the Breakaway has studio cabins. I thought I was getting a good deal but it ended up being more than if I would have paid double for a regular cabin. The ship ... Read more

My wife spotted this deal on one of the major cruise TV shows and the price was good considering it included flights and transfers, but what really swung it was the inclusion of NCL's extremely expensive Ultimate Beverage Package as a ... Read more
