More sure charges

This cruise was chosen for its itinerary. The ship is a fancy barge where you pay extra for anything you may need. We were expected to pay for a glass of tap water in the formal restaurant. They do not provided any ...

It's an ok ferry but would make a terrible cruise ship.

We are two NCL Platinum members, tempted to try MSC by their status match program, in which we were enrolled as 'Black'. Until this trip, we have only ever cruised on Norwegian, so we were very much expecting a very ...
