This was our first re-positioning cruise and we weren't expecting the majority of guests to be a part of the over 60 crowd, as we are both under 30. This is one of Norwegian's older ships and while it was clear they tried to update ... Read more

We had been on the Dawn last year so we knew a bit about the ship. It is a nice size ship, plenty of activities and there is a lot of variety for food. We had the dining package so we got to eat it all the specialty restaurants. Our ... Read more

The crew were very good, cabin OK and the food satisfactory. The entertainment and shows excellent. The ship usage of space and some NCL policies created problems. The space usage on the ship was something of a mystery with ... Read more

This was our second time on the Dawn, we were not overly impressed 2years ago about the pool layout, and the lack of Great outdoors. However, this trip surpassed my expectations. Embarkation was fast and seamless. We had fantastic ... Read more

As this was the Maiden voyage of Norwegian Escape there were a few, if not many, teething problems. The situation was not helped by poor weather confining 3000plus passengers inside the ship. Public spaces were simply not large enough ... Read more

We were able to board on Jade right away. We went right to our room, to drop off our luggage. The room wasn't ready, but we knew that and wasn't a problem for us. We enjoyed the small size of the ship. However, the ship decor was all ... Read more

Sailed inaugural transatlantic cruise to Miami. Embarkation just OK in Southampton. There was some confusion when calling guests to the counter & then reseating us & calling us again to embark. The ship had been on a short trip ... Read more

It was actually a 16 day cruise when we disembarked in Houston rather than Miami. It was economical, the food was fine and the ship seemed to be an excellent size for my wife and me. Not too big but still big enough to have several music ... Read more

We have cruised 224 days since 2012 and this was our 4th cruise on NCL. Over all a great trip, but it does seem that most of the restaurants are short on bus help. Tables can sit around you most of the time you have dinner waiting to be ... Read more

I'll be quick: This is my 15th cruise and 2nd on NCL... The balcony cabin Deck 11 was what you would expect. Be sure to use the 2 large drawers that are at the base of the sofa for storage. Shower was a just bit larger than other ... Read more

A repositioning cruise, it was our 2nd after a 3-night family cruise last summer on a Disney. We enjoyed the leisurely pace of this adventure, knowing we could have been busy every part of each day. Our port stateroom balcony was somewhat ... Read more

This was our 3rd cruise on NCL. Our first on NCL was dreadful so we did a second in case the first was just bad luck. The second was equally bad – actually it might have been worse – I forget – so an opportunity to try ... Read more

Inside cabin worked better when we asked Chris the cabin attendant to separate the beds, otherwise it's a tight squeeze on either side of the bed. It would be great if you could turn the heat/Ac off completely as the dry air really affects ... Read more

We joined this ship in Southampton, as we did many times on first sailings. No issues with getting on. We found the ship very plain in décor compared to other NCL ships but the eye got used to it. As Platinum members we were ... Read more

This was our third transatlantic and third Norwegian cruise. We had always liked the flexibility of Norwegian in the past and decided to bring the grand kids along this time. Weather was cold for 6 days so we could not use the rope ... Read more

The ship was delayed for delivery, and unfortunately it showed. As with other reports, there were shortages of several things. Provisioning the ship should be a fairly standard practice - and notwithstanding when the ship was delivered, ... Read more
