Being my first review I'm a little intimidated. It seems that those who respond to negative reviews often do so by criticizing the author's grammar, sentence structure and overall literacy. I don't claim to be Ernest Hemmingway, but I think this is supposed to be about the cruise isn't it? We were not expecting a high-end cruise experience, just something similar to what we got on our first ...

We have always booked cruises leaving the NYC area since we are not fond of flying. However, this cruise looked very interesting and we couldn't pass it up..So we flew down to Miami the same day as the cruise. It wasn't as bad as we thought it would be but we still don't like flying.Anyway,embarkation was all right especially since we were Latitudes members with a balcony so our line was a lot ...

Norwegian Jewel April 4th, 2010 Please excuse my habit of being ALL OVER THE PLACE with my writing. I will start by mentioning the gathering set up for the folks who were on the CruiseCritic Roll Call for this cruise. It was set up for the first day at sea, 11am, in the Maltings Beer and Whiskey Bar on deck 6. NCL was very nice to work with on setting this gathering up and a class act as ...

We had an awesome cruise! NCL are the best and their employees are fabulous. We went as a group; myself, wife 2 year old son, inlaws. We stayed in adjoining mini suites and loved it. Our room attendant was Edguardo and he was fantastic and very, very kind to our son. He made sure there was a new towel animal on his bed everyday! We love NCL, we would recommend them to anyone ...

This cruise, from April 11th through April 23rd, caught my eye because I liked the idea of starting in one port and ending up in my home port of NYC. I flew home immediately after cruising Alaska and will never do that again; it's too jarring to go from a relaxed state to the levels of anxiety and stress that are the "new normal" of an American airport. Catching a cab home sounded wonderful. I ...

This was our 7Th cruise. We already had been on Carnival 4 times, and once on RC and Princess, all of them very nice.This trip was the longest, 13 nights! Embarkation was fine and quick enough. Once we got on board that is when we started noticing the differences. First of all, service. Not good, room service was often late, we usually left early and came back late and still the room was not done. ...

This was our 14th cruise, 3rd on NCL. We were a group of 6, 4 in our late 50's and 2 "80-ish" aunties. Our overall comment on NCL is that they need to update into the technology age for their web site, their pre-cruise registration and embarkation process, provide the ability to view onboard charges from your cabin, and improve the wi-fi on the ship. That being said, it was a wonderful cruise ...

This was our first cruise with Norwegian having cruise with Carnival twice. And our first 7 day cruise. Embarkation: Embarkation went well. Not to many problems. It was a little warm inside but luckily by the time we we checked in they were allowing people to board. And of course like most people we headed over to the buffet. Which brings us to the next subject. Food: The food was great. Ate ...

Our kids (16, 13, and 11) as well as my husband and I thoroughly enjoyed this trip. There were plenty of teens due to Spring Break and many couples in our age category. The NCL employees were incredibly wonderful, professional, pleasant, and so very very hard working. You would think that 'freestyle' cruising would mean that you would not have the opp to get to have personalized service, but our ...

This is the first time that I have written a review. I have been on about 18 cruises. This was my first experience with NCL. I will share some pros and cons. Pros: Stateroom: We had a nice balcony with great views. The cabin was very clean. The shower area was large. There was constant very hot water ( as hot at you want it)in the shower. There were nice robes. The storage space was adequate. ...
