We were the last cruise before the COVID started. This was my 6th cruise (2nd on Norwegian). First I must say the cruise line did an exceptional job of keeping the ship clear & cruisers safe. (All public restroom ...

Not as good as I remember

Embarkation in NOLA was fast. I estimate that we were onboard within 15 minutes from the time we got in line. They said our room would be ready around 1:30 pm and it was. The Free Dining rooms food was not as ...

Disappointed

I chose this cruise due to NCL's private island and the stop at Costa Maya. Usually, we prefer Eastern or Southern Caribbean, but change it up sometimes. Our last NCL cruise was the same itinerary but on the Dawn, ...

Food not as good

Carnival crew members are always polite and almost always happy and friendly. That’s a big plus, of course. The food wasn’t as good on this cruise, IMO. My husband used to really enjoy the filet and lobster ...

Nickel and diming

We have cruises with Royal Caribbean, but it was 10+ years ago and more recently cruised with Princess. We wanted to try another company because the crowd on the Princess was quite a bit older and even in our mid ...

Less Than Average Trying to Outdo the Worst?

First the ship,is typical of trying to add more decks and rooms without any more elevators, dining or show room.With 4000 people it could be elbow-to-elbow. Folks were not rude, just TOO MANY! Ship was too long. We ...

Cramped quarters, amazing entertainment

Overall, I'd say this was a pretty average experience. I am used to cruising on RC and I found Norwegian a little subpar on just about everything...except the price of course. You get what you pay for I guess. ...

Decent first time cruise

Starting off on a positive note, it is evident the culture on this ship is focused around excellent service. Somewhere between 95-99% of the staff is incredible at their job. The cabin I stayed in seemed very ...
