My friends were going on this cruise and had been on Norwegian before, my family and I had not. This ship had the worst service in history, my family and I were SHOCKED. We bought the ultimate drink package and thought we'd get a chance to use it but that was just a dream, unfortunately. The bars were completely understaffed. We had to wait 30 minutes each time we wanted a drink from the bar ...

Bed was horrible, not enough things to do on the ship, Velvet show distasteful and horrible we left early and we complained and got our money back. Food was so so. Two waiters were rude but the rest of the staff was excellent. I’ve been on many cruises with other cruise lines but this was my worst experience. I got the exact link of the night pizza rolls from waffle sorrow for what my way to work ...

I was invited by friends to join them on this cruise. The ship was beyond impeccable! The staff were all so happy and friendly and really seem to enjoy making the guests happy! I only encountered 1 staff person at the excursion desk who was a little snappy and condescending with me...didn't catch her name. Our cabin attendant, Ulysses, was awesome! So attentive and friendly! Daylin (not sure if ...

I am not new at cruising and have taken 9 cruises prior to this one. I have sailed with Norwegian in the past and had a blast. I have never left a negative review about a cruise because I have never had an experience this bad. This time it was different. I hate leaving critical reviews because how much harm they can cause but this cruise was just really, really bad. Passengers all over the ...

I noticed a marked decline in service and attention compared to previous cruises. Always liked NCL for their service and never had any complaints. This cruise on the Breakaway was a bit disappointing. We met some wonderful friends, and that is always a great and positive experience. First night's dinner at the "Manhattan" was chaotic. There seemed to be a lot of confusion on the part of ...

I go on a cruise once a year - to relax and enjoy excellent views, amenities and service - in short - to be pampered. I'm willing to pay for that luxury and do so willingly. What I don't do is pay good money to stand in lines for 20 minutes to get a beverage, to have waiters totally ignore 90% of the people on the decks and to have bartenders be rude. Embarkation started out good - I'm Platinum ...

This horrible experience started with boarding the ship. It took 3 hours to board the ship because Norwegian claimed their system was having technical issues. Once on the ship the hungry guests were immediately ushered to the muster station for the emergency briefing that appeared rushed and unorganized. In the muster station some Norwegian employees were yelling at customers about cell phone ...

This wasn't at all what we expected as our first cruise. Embarkation was a nightmare. After receiving our cabin keys we were herded to a large room with hundreds of people. We waited there for 4 hours with nothing to drink and lots of standing room only with all the people. There was a network problem of some sort that stopped anyone from getting on the ship. After finally getting on we ...

We embarked on a week long cruise with NCL on the beautiful Breakaway last month. Positives The ship was beautiful, clean, well appointed and all the public areas were well laid out with adequate seating The food in the garden cafe (buffet) was lovely. Constantly refreshed and made fresh each time, we never had any problems with this food at all. The drinks package (as part of free ...

We did. not choose this cruise. Our daughter chose it and asked us to come with them. There was a major issue on embarkation, NCL computers were down and boarding took hours.Once that was fixed things went pretty good. We did have to move cabins due to crew noise above ours. They were great and moved us no problem. We ate is some specialty restaurants and Savor main dine room as well as buffet. ...
