My wife and I did a trans-Atlintic cruise two years ago and we really enjoyed it. We have never been to the Azores or Ireland before so we decided to do this cruise. We flew from DFW to Tampa a few days early, rented a car and enjoyed ... Read more

We love T/A cruises, lots of sea days, meeting new friends, even playing trivia( we never do this at home!) Jade was good in November when we went to Tampa, but even better in April after her refit. We liked the new O'Sheehans bar on deck ... Read more

We wanted to go to Europe and this cruise offered several destinations that we had not visited previously. The most desirable destination was Bruges, Belgium. Unfortunately, the ship bypassed that port because time did not permit after ... Read more

The cruise was going okay until we attempted to get into the Azores where we didn't dock because we were told the ship couldn't get in because of weather. It was more than likely an electrical issue with the azipods that we found out the ... Read more

We chose this cruise because of the price, destinations, length, and perks. Traveling from Miami to Denmark, with all you can drink and 4 specialty restaurants, for $93 per person per night is incredible! We did miss a port due to ... Read more

I chose this cruise because my husband and I had a lovely experience with a Transatlantic crossing on the NCL Star in 2013. Bad choice! The ship's decor is lovely, not garish and over the top like some cruise lines. The downside is ... Read more

We spent 4 weeks in the USA and choose the relaxing way to get back home. Upon arrival in Europe, we have done away with the time difference and are ready for the everyday life. This was already the 6th time we came home by cruise after ... Read more

This was our 18th cruise, but the first on NCL. The Getaway is a newer beautiful ship that holds 4000 passengers. We booked a mini-suite. Same as a balcony room except a couple of feet longer and had a large bathroom. Unfortunately, the ... Read more

It has been 25 years since we cruised on Norwegian, but this was a special cruise for our 40th wedding anniversary. (We are platinum members on Carnival.) Ship was very elegant, but layout was difficult to grasp. Food was different but ... Read more

The Good: 1. Embarkation and disembarkation were a breeze. We did not bring a lot of luggage, therefore the easy walk off was a great option. We were out on the pier in Southampton within 15 minutes of the clearance for ... Read more

This was our first time on a "Big ship" so we reserved at first when we were considering this cruise but we pick the location not the ship when booking. With that said we read how big ships are like small cities making it ... Read more

Needed a way to get to Europe without flying. Was familiar with Getaway. Like the layout of the ship. Courteous staff. Spa was great. Food was pretty good. Howl at the Moon was terrific as was Million Dollar Quartet and Burn the ... Read more

Firstly, we chose this cruise mainly for rest and "landed" in the UK without the dreaded jetlag! We stayed in the Westin, very close to the port pre-cruise and had a complimentary van transfer which took less than 5 minutes...$20 ... Read more

Average experience. Our reason for choosing was Tampa departure, drink package and gratuities included with our mini-suite selection. The martini bar was very well staffed but nothing special. Celebrity has ice bars. The cigar lounge was ... Read more

We have cruised with a number of lines including NCL before and took this trip partly due to the good deal, (as it was a repositioning trip for the ship to travel to Europe), and partly as we quite like the transatlantic crossings with ... Read more

It has been a long time since we did a long cruise (this one was 14 nights). Overall the cruise was good but we can see where cost cutting has changed the feel of this company's ships. We has a BD class of cabin with a balcony. The cabin ... Read more

I read a lot of reviews with pros and cons about big ships, and then appeared the Harmony with a TA by Nov 2016, but when a couple of weeks later decided to take it, no insides were left, so the bottom price was about $ 2,000. Too much ... Read more

My wife and I are veteran cruisers. We have been cruising since 1984. We have been on many different lines and many different sizes of ships. We have been on mega ships before, such as the Dream, which has about 50% more cruisers than ... Read more

We chose this cruise as it was repositioning across the Atlantic to Barcelona 1/4-14/4/17. When we arrived at Port Canaveral to embark it was chaotic with porters running round like headless chickens. There were badly organised queues ... Read more

As a solo traveler, Atlantic crossings with NCL have always been my favourites and this crossing was no exception. NCL make it so easy for solo travelers to make new friends aboard. The Norwegian Epic is not my favourite NCL ship with its ... Read more

1st Norwegian, 1st Transatlantic! Thoroughly enjoyed this cruise. Seas were very good in my opinion, only 2 days that we could feel the ship wobbling. Even the coolest day, last day I believe, there were still sunbathers out on deck. ... Read more
