masks not enforced

Review for Norwegian Getaway to Caribbean - All

I chose a Norwegian cruise mainly for the thermal spa area. The cruise was a rowdy one. The quiet zone was not enforced at all. The larger issue for me was the staff not enforcing the wearing of masks. In the buffet was the only time staff actually told people to put on masks. I got up once to get a spoon and was reminded to go back and get my mask. In the spa, the Atrium, the theater, and ...

Frequent NCL cruiser (very disappointed)

Okay, so we all understand this new Covid world we live in and make adjustments accordingly but I think NCL tried to push its luck one to many times with this cruise out of Miami on 12/27. My other Covid era reference was on the NCL Encore out of Seattle on 10/9, which was extremely well done. So what was different here? For my wife and I we noticed immediately at check in at the Port of ...

Overall a great cruise. Pre testing start to finish took about 1hr. In line to go in was packed, (bumper to bumper), inside for tests, stations were extremely tight, then went to waiting area for results, (given card with time on it) to get in final line to get wrist band, then went through security area to boarding area. Our arrival time was between 10:30-11 got to pier at 11on Getaway ...

I have never been on a trans-Atlantic cruise before or on NCL. NCL overall 5 stars for the ship’s crew. They were always polite and helpful. The food was great and the entertainment good. The specialized dining was very good especially enjoyed LeBistro and LaCucina. Portugal shoreline is amazing—definitely worth getting up to watch as ship ports. Malaga, Spain was a favorite for us very pretty ...

2-5 Cruises • Age 60s

I chose this itinerary from Athens to Rome because there were so many cancellations in 2021 due to COVID, but I had an inkling that this might be a "go" because Greece was one of the first countries in Europe to open to tourists due to its dependency on the tourism industry. Although we did not get to go to some of the ports that were originally planned, including Israel, I had no real ...

Terrible customer service- never again

My husband and I have taken several cruises on NCL and were really becoming fans. However our most recent cruise did not at all turn out as we had hoped and paid and the customer service we received was absolutely abhorrent. We are completely done with NCL and recommend you should be too, unless you like to be belittled if you ever have an issue. We will be selling all of our stock, which we now ...

Brilliant Greek Islands and Cyprus cruise despite a completely new itinerary from one booked originally!

Review for Norwegian Getaway to Mediterranean

We booked the cruise about a month before directly via NCL. Booked the whole package including flights and transfers which is the best way to book in the current covid climate. Got the cruise at a really good price and the original itinerary was to start from Athens, go to Cyprus, Israel, Turkey, few Greek islands and return back to Athens. The main reason for booking the cruise was to spend 2 ...

Some Hits and Misses, but a glorious Haven!

10+ Cruises • Age 30s

My husband and I chose this cruise because we wanted to travel when international travel opened and wanted to hit some warmer countries. While we have tried other cruise lines, we continually come back to NCL, especially for the Haven. The pre-cruise communication was a miss as only some people were informed that we would not be going to Turkey. I found out through social media, and even then, ...

We booked this cruise around late August, having seen a good deal on the NCL website which included the premium beverage package, 250 minutes of wifi and the prepaid service charges. As per the title, this is my first cruise in a decade (last being on Independence of the Seas on Royal Caribbean), and my first ever with Norwegian. The cruise began in Rome, so we grabbed the earliest flight from ...
