Just so-so

We have cruised many times (with another cruise line). This was the lowest quality of food, variety of food, lack of customer service, and mediocre entertainment that we have experienced. Our room with a balcony was ...

Customer service not great

The ship itself is beautiful and modern and new and everything you would expect from a brand spanking new cruise ship, however, the customer service was sub par. Some of the people were super nice, however there ...

Great service!

We chose this cruise as it allowed us to go to warm-weather ports in the winter, and we could use 2 Cruise Next certificates. Our last NCL cruise had not been great - especially the service. We'd been on the ...

We booked this cruise last minute (less than 60 days out) as a getaway for the two of us. We wanted to try the Haven on Norwegian as we have heard great things about it and prefer to travel in similar class suites ...

Mixed Review of Sorts

I chose this cruise because I live in Southern California and there was no airfare involved. Also, the fact that it is a brand new ship. Now, that I've had some time to think more clearly I'm going to put some of ...

We opted for the Royal Princess cruise on the Mexican Riviera mainly because it was close to where we live in California and because the ship had been updated recently and looked beautiful. We were not disappointed ...

Just ok

First time on the Norwegian line. We had high hopes since this is a pretty new ship (built in 2017) and then had a major refurbishing in 2019. And while some of those hopes were met, others were not. We had ...

Fun on and off the Carnival Miracle

We chose this cruise for two reasons first because it was departing San Diego (our hometown) and second because it was going to Cabo. We choose a 1:00 pm check in and it was so easy. We did not have to wait in any ...
