My 25th cruise... and the worst to date

We have just disembarked from the Norwegian Getaway after our cruise from Venice to Athens. It was my husband and I sailing and our 2 and 5 year old daughters. We started off the holiday with a wonderful few days in Venice and then on the final day we caught the train from Trieste down to Venice with many other NCL passengers. When we arrived we very quickly realised that there were very few ...

We chose this cruise because of the variety of locations that the ship was going to be visiting. We booked our holiday, but with days to go, the itinerary changed.... drastically. Almost every day the time in port was shortened by 2 hrs or more. This left us with no chance to spend any quality time in port. They cancelled our stop in mykanos altogether because of choppy waves, yet 2 other ...

We chose this cruise for the ports of call. To begin, they cancelled our overnight in Istanbul before departing. The time in the ports were cut short because the cruise excursions never left on time. There was always and hour or two hour delay to get off the ship due to the unorganized shore excursion personnel. It was a joke. So instead of adding time to our excursions we were just short ...

Well, I believed Norweigen is a reputable cruise line, but not this time. I knew the crew did their best. They were polite. Hard working and offered free entertainment. Service Dept was always short staff. Ogot my specialty dinner back. Food was okay but housekeeping can be better as we had to pay $20. per day mandatory. Sometimes it was done before dinner time. What upset me most the ...

Poor NCL Customer Service-Missed Port & Shortened Port Stays.

I want to bring to your attention the disappointing experience my family and I encountered during our recent NCL Getaway cruise departing on July 12, 2023. Despite having high expectations based on the itinerary, our journey was marred by missed ports, shortened port stays, and subpar customer service. I feel compelled to share these grievances in order to shed light on NCL's ...

I chose this itinerary from Athens to Rome because there were so many cancellations in 2021 due to COVID, but I had an inkling that this might be a "go" because Greece was one of the first countries in Europe to open to tourists due to its dependency on the tourism industry. Although we did not get to go to some of the ports that were originally planned, including Israel, I had no real ...

My husband and I have taken several cruises on NCL and were really becoming fans. However our most recent cruise did not at all turn out as we had hoped and paid and the customer service we received was absolutely abhorrent. We are completely done with NCL and recommend you should be too, unless you like to be belittled if you ever have an issue. We will be selling all of our stock, which we now ...

Some Hits and Misses, but a glorious Haven!

My husband and I chose this cruise because we wanted to travel when international travel opened and wanted to hit some warmer countries. While we have tried other cruise lines, we continually come back to NCL, especially for the Haven. The pre-cruise communication was a miss as only some people were informed that we would not be going to Turkey. I found out through social media, and even then, ...

Brilliant Greek Islands and Cyprus cruise despite a completely new itinerary from one booked originally!

We booked the cruise about a month before directly via NCL. Booked the whole package including flights and transfers which is the best way to book in the current covid climate. Got the cruise at a really good price and the original itinerary was to start from Athens, go to Cyprus, Israel, Turkey, few Greek islands and return back to Athens. The main reason for booking the cruise was to spend 2 ...
