How to catch Covid!
"Two days later as we got ready to leave Tahiti I tested positive for Covid!12 beautiful days on board the ship, because we were not flying out of Tahiti immediately, we had booked 2 extra days stay there through NCL, we did not get tested before getting off the ship, even though I had symptoms or a "summer cold"...."Read More

Amazing Redo of an Older Ship

Review for Norwegian Spirit to Alaska

10+ Cruises • Age 70s

We just embarked on this ship but I wanted to say it is absolutely beautiful! Being a frequent sailor on NCL I have been on many of the newer ships. The Spirit is modern everywhere and so tastefully decorated everywhere. The rooms have also been redone and offer lots of space for clothing and cosmetics. The staff seems very helpful and so far the food has been good. We haven’t even left the ...

We live about an hour south of Seattle, so Alaska is very accessible as a cruise destination. Embarkation was a dream, about an hour for the whole process. Rooms were ready, clean and well set up. Sanjur did an excellent job as our steward We found food to be a step up, perhaps due to 60% occupancy. Marie had the Windows dining room running smoothly and efficiently as the maitre d. Buffet ...

Second time on this ship. A lot of nice improvements. People at Port were not very helpful and lack customer service skills. Norwegian staff always helpful. Unfortunately seattle port staff make start of cruise bad. Norwegian always provide good value and friendly service. Looking forward to rest of the trip experiencing the same quality of service as other Norwegian cruises. Good ...

Great Crew, NCL was horrible

First Time Cruiser • Age 30s

Pre Cruise - Norwegian was horrible about communication prior to the cruise. When one of our excursions got cancelled they never notified us. Cruise - The food was very bland and unimpressive except for the steakhouse. The night club/disco was shut down because "We couldn't find a DJ", so there was nothing to do late night unless you wanted to sit at the pub. First 2 destinations were ...

We were so excited to go on this cruise as it was our first family vacation in over 4 years. We have cruised several times before and have always had a positive experience. This was the first time we had gone on a cruise with Norwegian, but we had heard so many good things about this cruise line I didn't expect all the issues we had! This was the first time I have travelled internationally ...

We used the NCL Promotional Air - Most everyone had to as there are only two scheduled flights to Tahiti per day. They got us to LAX then had 3 maybe 4 charter flights to Tahiti. Lucky for us we were on one of the latter flights that was maybe 2/3 full so we could spread out. The seats in the economy section of the “Air Tahiti Nui” Airbus A310 were most uncomfortable. We arrived with no ...

First cruise with NCL - not impressed

Excellent service on the ship. Small ship, not too many people, this is good. Too many giant screens, not necessary at all especially when listening to a band playing music. The band Hotwire is excellent, if you want to dance. Disappointed that all communication are in English only. On other companies it is in multiple languages. Food was just ok. Japanese and Italian restaurants ...

Excellent Ports of Call, Mundane Days at Sea

Review for Norwegian Spirit to Hawaii

2-5 Cruises • Age 40s

Chose this cruise for the unique opportunity to see both French Polynesia and Hawaii, and the ports of call did not disappoint. What did disappoint was the lack of effort and variety that comprised activities while at sea. With 4 straight days at sea, we were hoping for a full option of things to do, but the daily itinerary was pretty much recycled from one day to the next. There were not a lot of ...

Bucket-List destinations ! All is GREAT !!! Unless you contacted Covid-19, Then you're a 3rd class citizen. While quarantined service is non-existent and meals delivered to cabins are VERY limited, untimely and unpredictable. Fortunately we had an excellent cabin-steward (who could not enter our cabin) but allowed us to regularly exchange towels and emptying of trash. My ...

Went on what was supposed to be a dream of a lifetime cruise with Norwegian Cruise Lines, 14 day cruise to the Hawaiian Islands and Also Islands in Tahiti. We had a wonderful time with family and friends...until the 12th day when some tested positive for Covid. When this happened the cruise line told us we would be able to stay in our State rooms with balconies. Well, little did we know, they ...
