Think Carefully Before You Book Your Cruise

Review for a World Cruise Cruise on Queen Mary 2 (QM2)

2-5 Cruises • Age 70s

1. The cabin was very small and the balcony disappointing. 2. Beware of infection, avoid public areas and rest rooms and don't touch anything outside your cabin. Noro virus is apparently very common on board cruises and is extremely infectious BUT we were not warned of this beforehand. A number of us contracted it and the medical center was packed. It results in being isolated to your ...

Horrible experience so far. Over crowded everywhere queues for days to do just about anything, including accessing lifts. People are frustrated and impatient and thus pushes in lines and literally fight for space in the pools. Dirty. Cheap food. To top it off our ship is stuck in the Harbour. What a terribly disappointing experience. Stuck for another 3 days hoping to 'cruise to nowhere' instead ...

First Time Cruiser • Age 50s

Horror Cruise! Norwengian is no longer Norwengian! Since COVID, NCL cruises have deteriorated in an inexplicable way. We are on board the Dawn crossing from Africa to Europe. An outbreak of gastroenteritis on board. Hundreds with diarrhea, including crew. The same ship, on the last cruise before this one, had already been quarantined on the Mauritius Coast with cholera suspected. It seems they ...

DO NOT SAIL WITH NORWEGIAN CRUISE LINE

Our worries about this cruise first started when the three ports we most wanted to visit, Cape Verde and Morocco, were dropped the day after full payment was required on the grounds of fuel economy. I looked at the route and thought that poor planning was the more likely cause and this seems to have been an ongoing theme. Things got off to a poor start at our first port of call Walvis bay ...

Worst Cruiseline Ever

10+ Cruises • Age 70s

A tried old ship with the worst captain of any fleet, we never laid eyes on him the whole cruise. The rest of the crew were lovely as usual but an ill trained member of Guest Services gave me bad information that caused me to lose my remaining obc that could have been used in the shops. It was an unorganised cruise where NCL had not put enough work into seeing that things were in place at ...

Trouble on NCL Dawn in Africa

First Time Cruiser • Age 60s

There is something definitely wrong on this ship. I got a stomach virus after 3 days of sailing and was put in isolation. After taking my medicine, I barely are for the subsequent 3 days. And, I got the bug, again. I traced my problem to a common denominator: Caesar Salad. The Captain ordered that crews must serve passengers in the buffet area. We aren't even allowed to get water by ourselves. ...

Did Norwegian know where we going?

I was disappointed with this cruise. I think NCL had a chance to make it something special but chose not to. We had only sailed on Norwegian once before and had not particularly enjoyed it but the itinerary that NCL originally offered with stops in West Africa, Cape Verde and Morocco was so unusual and interesting that we decided to give Norwegian another go. The first disappointment was that ...

After cruising for over 30 years with 37 plus cruises on many different cruise lines, this was the first and most definitely the last with NCL. If there was a tick-box for very poor, instead of just poor it would have been used. Taking a deposit and then cancelling the scheduled ports as listed on the itinerary is nothing short of misrepresentation, especially as it appears that NCL do this ...

On returning from the NCL Dawn cruise from Cape Town to Barcelona I fully intended to give an honest assessment of our time on board but on reading the reviews already on the system I found that my task had already been carried out. It gives me no pleasure than to agree almost 100% with all the adverse comments about this cruise. This was our 50th cruise and apart from a dreadful experience on ...
