Worst experience of 3 with NCL

Negatives: Spring break cruise, my MISTAKE. Screaming, drinking, banging on doors in the middle of the night, singing " coronavirus in the hallways" at 3am. Watched a couple of spring breakers who coughed ...

Bliss Ended My Love of Cruising

I've been on a ton of cruises in my life, but this was my first NCL experience (Feb. 23 out of NYC.) Due to the hype of the Bliss, I had high expectations - perhaps that was my problem, but honestly, shouldn't they ...

Not for couples in their 20-30s

Just to forewarn this is mainly all a negative comment Lol. This ship is the 3rd smallest in the fleet, and built in the 90s. Boarding was not very smooth for us. Royal Caribbean never sent me any emails or a ...

Overpriced Carnival cruise for children

My 3 year old had the time of her life, but I was disappointed. The Disney Oceaneer club for kids was fantastic and the nursery was also good. The adult entertainment and activities were awful. The buffet was better ...

Disappointment

I chose NCL Bliss because I cruised with NCL in the past and had a great time. The last cruise I took was earlier this year on the Royal Caribbean. So, I thought I would give NCL another shot. We were going to hold ...

OVERPRICED TERRIBLE EXPERIENCE.

The boarding process was a bit more tedious than TSA at the airport. We have a small toddler and wanted to relax and welcome the new year doing something fun and new. This was our very first cruise and certainly the ...

Good food & beverage do not mask problems with staff training, ship limitations

I waffled a bit between a 'poor' and an 'average' review, but ultimately chose 'poor' because there were just too many things that we found annoying for our family of four. First, the pluses. The cabins are ...

So much excitement. Then so much mediocrity, with a splash of disappointment.

My wife and I went into this cruise with such excitement - our first completely solo cruise without our (now adult) children who have accompanied us on every one of our past cruises. A new class of ship (and just ...

Not good for [stereotypical] boys

We went on this cruise with my then 5 year old and 3 year old sons. Although they aren't that into Disney specifically, we figured they'd enjoy the kids activities and we'd get some much needed adult time away. ...
