5-day Sun

Point off for this eval format, the smell in the room, and the room steward. Is this what Norwegian is doing now instead of a REAL eval of your cruise paid for by your hard-earned money?? That's so cheap, and very ...

Bliss- Too big of a ship

So I was told after the fact that this was the first re positioning cruise for this ship. I think the ship is to big for me. There was not enough seats in the atrium. Guests were pushing people to get to seats. ...

Mediocre experience

I had traveled with NCL 10 years before with a lackluster experience and decided to give them a second chance. As a dedicated Royal cruiser my expectations were high but once again NCL didn’t even come close. ...

MSC Economizes by not providing kleenex

The ship is gorgeous and easy to get around but there were several things wrong, First, the cabin was tiny, the bed so narrow that I was seriously worried about falling out (and I am a relatively small person) and ...

Not the Best but Not the Worst

First of all, this certainly was not our best cruise experience; however some things were in my opinion unavoidable, but RCI still could have done better in their response. To start, prior to the voyage, RCI sent ...

A little disappointing

This was our first cruise with Carnival, so I don't know if our experience was typical of Carnival or just this ship. We had heard that the Carnival line caters to a younger crowd than other lines we sail on, and we ...

1st Cruise

This was my husband's and my first cruise and we enjoyed it. Norwegian offered a great deal on the cruise with many added perks. Expect to spend an additional $200-300 each in other charges and on board purchases. ...

Great for first timers...

we chose this cruise because of the duration/ports/and the fact it went under a refurbishment. So here is my two cents---I'm a pretty easy going passenger and pretty much goes with the flow...so upon reading ...

Even a mediocre cruise is great when compared to being at work, that said we have had better times the last two summers on NCL. Overall we had a good time, but I dont think anything stood out as much better than ...
