DO NOT EVER BOOK THROUGH EXPEDIA!!!!!!

The NCL free promotions for dining and beverages etc is a real differentiator. I have noticed that in the last few years the cruise lines are now up charging for everything and it is very annoying. I would rather ...

Just to forewarn this is mainly all a negative comment Lol. This ship is the 3rd smallest in the fleet, and built in the 90s. Boarding was not very smooth for us. Royal Caribbean never sent me any emails or a ...

Got Away on the Getaway February 7-16 2020

We initially chose this cruise because a rum cake went terribly wrong! I made a rum cake using my husband’s prized rum from Grand Cayman. Learning that this was no ordinary rum and it was impossible to replace ...

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 ...
