I chose this cruise because of the price. It was all inclusive and super cheap. I have heard nothing but positive things about Norwegian from friends. I am so glad that I finally got to experience "the cruise". We were ... Read more

The Forward balcony cabin on 10 10018, was away from ALL traffic and far enough away from elevators so no DING. It was close to the elevators, Convient to pool, and casino. And away from all noise in halls and partying. Also great for ... Read more

This was our first NCL cruise and we didn't choose it; we "crashed" my sister's vacation (she and her husband are awesome to travel with!). We didn't travel with children and we stayed in separate cabins. My sister in an ... Read more

This was my first time cruising with Norwegian and it was a great cruise for the price! I have previously been on two Royal Caribbean cruises and loved them, but my mom is an avid knitter and found a group that was going on this cruise and ... Read more

I choose this cruise as it is a great way to see part of South America in a safe and secure environment. Given the crime levels in South America and not speaking Spanish or Portuguese the cruise is the obvious choice to get a flavour of ... Read more

First off, I may not be as experienced as some of the other reviewers and I wouldn't consider myself high maintenance. I personally believe each cruise line has positives and negatives and that you can have a good time based on your needs ... Read more

The Norwegian Escape is big, bold and beautiful. We enjoyed this cruise immensely Pros: 1. New ship, with more public areas than you can imagine using in 7-nights! 2. Good dining options both free and up-charge. 3. Very ... Read more

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

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
