Weather uncooperative, Crew were awesome!
"If you are looking for higher-end watches, you will need to go at least a mile away from the port terminal or deal with the DI people just outside the terminal.I will say that the ship itself had a nice selection of Hamilton and Tag watches, and hubby found one (OK, 2) he loved on the ship...."Read More

Best cruise and cruise line ever....

Review for Norwegian Escape to Caribbean - Eastern

Over the last 10 years, my husband and I have taken cruises on five different cruise lines. We started with about six or eight cruises on Carnival. We then wanted to try out Royal Caribbean. In our most recent, pre-covid cruises, we cruised on Disney, Princess and Celebrity cruise lines. With the exception of the food, we were pleased with Carnival but after about five different cruises with ...

This was our first cruise with Norwegian and our last. The cabin was super small. This was a common complaint among the passengers we met. With that said, the room was very clean. The food was subpar. The buffet had basically the same items daily. After 7 days, we didn't have much of an appetite. We dined in their seafood restaurant. The main dish was good, but the sides were cold. We ...

We have been cruising for approximately ten years, but more so since we have retired. We have 10 or 11 cruises under our belt and have sailed on Carnival, NCL, RCL and Princess. We originally chose this cruise because of the destination ports and the fact that it sailed out of Port Canaveral which is a days drive from home. It was to go to Amber Cove, Tortola, St. Thomas and Great Stirrup Cay. ...

We bid on and upgrade suite and got it.. it looked the same as a regular suite with double the size balcony and bathroom.. 3 of us in the room so it was comfortable. Mark took care of our room.. he was great and brought us anything we needed right away.. we tipped Mark everyday, which we always do on a cruise, and Mark made sure we were in need of nothing! Great experience.. We were traveling ...

Sailed for the first time on NCL in a Haven Penthouse Balcony room. The NCL embarkation and disembarkation processes need a lot of work. Although we were pretty much escorted through the throngs of people it was still a little bit convoluted. We arrived about 10:15 am and there were already at least a thousand people in various lines waiting to board. I can see why people get upset over the ...

We book a cruise with our adult children and our grandchildren during spring break each year. We choose Norwegian because of the kids sail free offers and the number of activities available for the little ones. This year the cruise was not as worry free as usual because of the virus scares throughout the world. We did not cancel because our cruise was before the Norwegian offers to give passengers ...

Worse cruise ever

I received a really good offer from a travel place and had never sailed Norwegian so thought I would try it. The food and the service were both awful. We tried several restaurants and each time the food was luke warm at best. We actually had to go to the buffet after leaving one restaurant because my husband never got his meal. Our room steward never cleaned our room until late in the afternoon ...

We thought we would try Norwegian Cruises - really liked the route and got a great deal on a mini suite. I had visions of a large cabin and large balcony - not so much. Cabin was well appointed but indistinguishable from balconies on Celebrity or RCC. Service and food were hit and miss. We really enjoyed the Manhattan Dining Room where the service and food quality was better than Taste or ...

Because NCL hasn’t told anyone this, Margaritaville is longer existent on this ship, and we booked in February (it was removed before we even booked). We tried to upgrade rooms and had no help from Norwegian or the website although we kept getting emails to upgrade. Our cruise rep, Brandon, was supposed to call us the day before and did not. So we made attempts the day before sailing and the ...

The Cruise of Disappointments

Plain and simple - disappointing. To say the least we were very mislead. This was not a cheap vacation and we didn’t expect it to be, but we also expected it to be at least worth what we paid. We chose this cruise because it matched our travel dates, budgets, and it had a great itinerary. We loved the idea of freestyle dining. No set times, no dress codes, and we didn’t have to eat at tables with ...
