Embarkation My timing was perfect to miss most of the crowd getting on the ship. I was on the ship my noon in time for lunch. Somehow I missed the porters so I took my own suitcase on. Had to drag it around with me as our rooms ... Read more

I was just on the 12-day Grand Mediterranean from May 7-19 aboard the Norwegian Spirit. It was a DREAM VACATION. While the ship was relatively older and I did complain about having to pay almost double for my stateroom and port fees... the ... Read more

The ship was gorgeous, the food was awesome (at the specialty restaurants) and the service was excellent, with some pretty good entertainment. Which is everything to expect in a 5 star cruise. Special thanks to the assistant ... Read more

I have just come back off the Norwegian Epic after taking my elderly father on his first holiday in over 10 years. Disappointed isn't a word I can use strongly enough after the horrendous holiday we have just endured. We were met by ... Read more

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

I boarded on Tuesday, April 19th in Miami. The NCL Jade's transatlantic cruise had originated in Houston a few days earlier. Embarkation was the smoothest and quickest ever. As I understand only some 200 passengers boarded in Miami. ... Read more

I chose this cruise as an add on to a 10 day Serenade of the Seas one I'd booked, as I like to make my airfare count! I used Jiffy Jeff to get me from FLL airport to Miami port & he offered great service ($15 shared, $45 alone), ... 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 chose this holiday as my retirement present and wanted a cruise where I wouldn't be doing a lot but relaxing. Boy was that a mistake, I have never done so much on a cruise. I learnt to play bridge (although it was American rules), how to ... 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

I had never been to South America and the whole programme excited me, so away I went. I flew via Germany from Ireland and landed in Buenos Aires in the morning. A car was waiting for me and took me to my hotel for the night. Due to it ... 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
