Seems like NCL is cutting corners!

Review for a Arctic Cruise on Norwegian Star

- Itinerary changed shortly after booking without any explanations - Embarkation was fair but disorganized as was everything on this cruise - food was laughably bad. I ordered the Scallops entree one night and when it was presented to me, all six of us busted out laughing! 8-9 tiny Bay scallops smaller than the diameter of a dime that were overcooked to the point of rubber. - Specialty ...

This is my third NCL cruise in the last eighteen months, and I moved up to Platinum on this cruise. Sadly, I’m not sure I will take advantage of the perks that come with this level. I have also cruised on Royal Caribbean, Celebrity, Holland America, and Princess. Problems started even before final payment and went downhill from there. First Stavenger, Norway and the beautiful sail in among ...

Poor service, poor ship

Review for a Arctic Cruise on Trollfjord

When reading the Hurtigruten publicity for the refitted Trollfjord you would expect to find an exquisite small cruise ship, what you get is an overcrowded cheaply converted coastal ferry. The standard cabins are small with low cost fittings. Our bathroom cabinet didn’t close and the shower fitting fell to bits. The bed was uncomfortable. Dinning was not the highlight one would hope for. ...

Poor management - understaffed.

10+ Cruises • Age 60s

This was our fourth NCL cruise, but the first for quite a while preferring Celebrity and RCL but this itinerary included many of our “bucket list” ports, including Reykjavik and Lerwick (Shetland). It is very obvious that they are understaffed, and undertrained. The front-line help is courteous enough but not prepared or allowed to problem solve. There is lack of communication between ...

Jewel is Old, Itinerary was Wonderful

10+ Cruises • Age 60s

We booked this 22 months ahead of time. We were unable to get our favorite cabin, JS. We did not like the balcony cabin! Way too small for us. I can't remember how many times we ran into each other between the bed and door. The Jewel of the Seas is old, built in 2004 and updated in 2016. It needs so much work. Paint peeling, titles cracked, Wi-Fi was almost nonexistent. unless you were in the ...

Great itinerary, lovely weather, ship could be better

We chose this cruise because of the itinerary, sailing dates, and to use a 20% discount certificate that was issued by NCL due to canceling the Epic's winter Mediterranean sailings. The terms were rather restrictive and this sailing qualified. We booked about 3 months ahead, so we were within the final payment date and could only use one CruiseNext certificate. NCL would not budge on this, despite ...

Miserable

Loved the destinations but the ship and amenities were terrible. The only great things onboard were the dancers and singer shows. What’s the good thing about using food clips to pickup your food when most people are coughing in their hands? There has to be a better way of serving. The wines were the cheapest I ever had. The package they sell is worthless. NCL has skimped on all their services even ...

Crystal Serenity Solo Experience was excellent.

I just had the time of my life on this cruise. I am a 60-something widow and this is my first cruise sailing solo since my husband passed. He and I had sailed Crystal six times, on all three ships, and loved it. I chose this cruise because I was happy to see Crystal come back, Iceland is on the bucket list, and, well, it was time to get back out there traveling. I flew to Reykjavik two days ...

Disappointment

Review for a Arctic Cruise on Scenic Eclipse

6-10 Cruises • Age 60s

The service, food, cabins were all great. Totally disappointed in communication. Never received the next days schedule until 8-9 the night before. Even the next morning crew were not versed as to what the schedule would be. Totally unacceptable was our return flights. 1 1/2 days before departure we were told that our ship would dock at 9:00 and couldn't leave the ship until at least 9:30. We ...

Such a shame

10+ Cruises • Age 60s

We chose this cruise because I’d always wanted to go to Iceland, also another chance for celebrity to redeem itself after a very disappointing cruise round the Caribbean in February. We have been loyal cruisers with Celebrity for years attaining Elite Plus status, sadly it’s time to say goodbye. It started with our balcony cabin, items from the previous occupants were left in the wardrobe. No ...
