This was my 2nd sailing on the NCL Sun. The last was 8 years ago in balcony 9235 and this time just a few doors down in 9244. Surprisingly, the ship is still in pretty good shape. While it does show some age here and there, it's well ... Read more

I loved my 10-day Alaska Jewel cruise in September, weather was really nice for being late in the season, we even were lucky to have sun at Glacier Bay, it was the highlight of the cruise, the Captain brought the ship for a close-up ... Read more

Mattress was very hard, I complained , cabin steward came in , I showed him it was ripped. For a year old ship I would not expect this. I had to complain to his boss to get it replaced, it took hours for them to find a bed, what a joke. ... Read more

Very good cruise. We had cruised on the Breakaway in 2013, and were interested to see what we thought of the smaller ship. Honestly don't have a preference. Food was great, service was great, entertainment was great. Ship was in great ... Read more

A brief background on this cruise is in order before commencing the review. The NCL Sun was originally scheduled for a two week drydock in San Francisco. For reasons known only to NCL, that drydock was shortened to one week. This led to ... Read more

This was our first time cruising with Norwegian. We've been on a few other cruise lines before (Royal Caribbean and Disney Cruise lines) Initially we chose Norwegian due to the low cost, and as it was a repositioning cruise, it was the ... Read more

We upgraded to the Haven.Upon arrival we realized there really was no Haven. We met a butler, but after the initial meeting he was non-existant. We had no orientation to our room or the ship. No rules were presented although the ... Read more

This was my 3rd sailing on the Pearl (chosen only for the stop in San Francisco) and 7th overall on NCL. Pre-cruise customer service was disappointing and left me not wanting to sail. I called multiple times pre-cruise to request a ... Read more

Travel for relaxation was the main reason for this particular cruise. MISSON ACCOMPLISHED! The ship is smallish and very easy to navigate. We had a balcony room on the 10 deck which was perfect. Large enough for 2 people to easily ... Read more

Embarcation was a breeze as we had elected to arrive close to the time we could board and were able to leave our carry on bags in our cabin, which was already prepared. Spirit is a relatively small and older ship so if you are looking ... Read more

Fine transatlantic cruise with a few blips along the way. Spirit is an older smaller ship which suits me fine and has many features fast disappearing on larger newer ships such as a wide teak wraparound promenade deck and a forward ... Read more

This NCL Spirit Cruise was chosen as our first cruise. We wanted to get from Guadalajara Mexico to Paris France without any prolonged flights. Based upon cost, convenience and enjoyment, a cruise seemed to be the best way to get to ... Read more

Had a great time on this cruise. The ship was only 1/2 full so the service was much better than the usual great service. Only 2 days of rough weather but everything was fine. Food was great, only ate in the dining rooms. We followed ... Read more

Embarkation was one of the easiest yet. We walked directly in to the terminal, check in, and walked onboard the ship. Head directly to O'Sheehan's for lunch and wait for rooms to open. Once the rooms were opened we had a BA midship, ... Read more

We had a blast on this cruise, before and after. Yes, the Jade is dated, but she is also do for a retrofit shortly. That said, we did not have any trouble with any systems in our cabin (5601), just things looking a bit worse for the ... Read more
