All excellent apart from one major flaw in you like to lounge in the sun.

Love going out of New York City as we hate flying! Staying in Newark night before with private car transport great service though tri ni ty reservation excellent! Little bit of a wait in terminal meeting some nice fellow travelers one who unfortunately got Covid-19 and was in room for duration. We didn’t get sick. Food was adequate not outstanding. Best was Cagney and we went twice ribeye steak ...

Using Trinity reservations again for $423.00 beautiful new hotel at spring hill suites in Newark room parking and breakfast plus a dedicated suv for ...

My family choose this cruise line because it was for 12 days and the 7 ports of calls appealed to us. This was our 7th cruise so we were pretty familiar with how the cruise lines operated in general. The first issue I noticed was the odour in our stateroom the minute we were able to enter. I didn’t think much of it because I have a highly sensitive sense of smell. The odour carried into most ...

I have been on over 20 cruises. I love cruising. I have cruised on Celebrity, NCL, Princess, RCL, Windstar and Carnival. I picked this cruise because of the ports. Puerto Rico, St Thomas, St Kitts, St Lucia (was replaced with Dominica) Antigua, Barbados and Dominican Republic. It was a twelve-day cruise, and I traveled solo in a club balcony room. There was a solo group meet up each night at ...

Friends chose the NCL cruise out of NYC and since I had cruised many times with NCL I was happy to join them. Sadly my experience on this cruise was far below my expectations with NCL. This is what I would consider a no frills cruise. Below is what I experienced on this cruise. 1- Breakfast in the two dining rooms, Savory and Taste were always cold, pancakes, waffles, frenchtoast & coffee. ...

We booked with NCL because we were looking for a family friendly, affordable cruise. We cruised with our just turned 3 year old daughter and were excited that she would be able to take part in the children's programming. We were unfortunately disappointed in the lack of activities she could participate in because she was not completely potty trained, and therefore not allowed to take part in any ...

First off, I would like to say that I cruised NCL Escape in April 2022 which left port in FL. On the Escape, I immediately felt welcomed and the customer service was wonderful! I would not pass by other cruiser or staff on the elevators without everyone saying "Good Morning, Good afternoon, or Good evening.". The buffet was open until 11:30pm which was wonderful for our night owl kids. The ...

Lower your expectations, adapt to conjestion, waiting, and mediocre quality, and you might have a halfway decent cruise

This was a 12 day Caribbean cruise sailing from NYC. We are fairly seasoned cruisers, with this being our 8th or 9th cruise. We have cruised on Princess a bunch and Norwegian once before. This was the worst cruise experience, with the blame split between staffing shortages, an overcrowded ship with obnoxious and loud passengers, a glaring lowering of quality, and poor strategic space decisions on ...

A cruise is oftentimes what you make of it. This is my 8th cruise and 5th solo cruise. I will be honest and say this is the worst cruise I’ve ever taken, however it is as still a very good trip, experience and I had a nice time. The value for the money was still wonderful. Let’s begin. The ship itself is wonderful, however it needs some care. It’s immaculately clean and sanitized, but has ...

We chose this cruise because of convenience and vicinity of port of embarkation since Manhattan cruise terminal is very close to our home. The south Caribbean destinations also attracted us. This was my first cruise with Norwegian but 6th overall. However I was only partially satisfied with their services. I will mention both positive and negative experiences. The positive experiences ...
