First and last cruise with NCL

My family choose this cruise line because it was for 12 days and the 7 ports of calls appealed to us. This was our 7th cruise so we were pretty familiar with how the cruise lines operated in general. The first issue I noticed was the odour in our stateroom the minute we were able to enter. I didn’t think much of it because I have a highly sensitive sense of smell. The odour carried into most ...

This was our first cruise and we booked it sort of at the last minute because it was cheap and some friends were going. We were told it was a weird itinerary - NYC to Bermuda, just a half day in Bermuda, then on to Nassau, Great Stirrup Cay and a long day in Port Canaveral (7 am to 1 am). We were also told it would be cold in Bermuda and the seas would be rough in January. But everything turned ...

The Good This was my first solo cruise as a fairly recent widow. The cruise met almost all my expectations with amazing New Year’s Eve revelry, thermal spa experience, and most importantly the Solo Cruise Coordinator, Lucas. It was wonderful to meet daily with other solo’s to plan activities and meals. Lucas did a marvelous job making our dinner and show reservations, providing fun daily ...

We went on this cruise due to its location and its destination. Our son and his girlfriend joined us for this 8-night cruise out of NYC Manhattan terminal. We left on NYE and was hoping to enjoy the harbor as we left NYC, but unfortunately it was foggy out and we didn't see anything but a few lights through the fog. It was also cold outside, so didn't really want to be on the outside deck ...

We just returned from a fabulous cruise on the Norwegian Getaway after several years since our last one. This will go down as one of our favorite cruises! Yes the itinerary changed on day two - which saw our stops in Bermuda replaced with an additional day at Port Canaveral and a day in Nassau - but at least for my wife and I we had selected the vacation because of the ship and the dates, so this ...

This cruise was an absolute nightmare from start to finish. NCL has clearly reduced its staff and offerings and is in line with Carnival or lower cruises. We have been on at least 5 NCL cruises in the past (and Around 20 overall) and this 8 night trip was far and away the worst ever. The food was so bad that we ate dinner at the Irish Pub 3x. Shore excursions were cancelled with little or no ...

Sailed Holiday cruise, which was impacted by winter storm Elliott, no fault of NCL. Smartly, NY closed the harbor so the Ship could not sail until the next morning, and it was a good thing! Embarkation process was easy. However please read, and take your chances if you book: Very Understaffed ship, yet the ship sailed full, possibly over booked. The ship was unbelievably crowded. NCL did not have ...

Wow, where do I even start. This was a trip for my father in-laws birthday celebration. We get there it's delayed 12 hours due to the inclement weather (totally understandable). First night my inlaws have absolutely no HEAT (mind you NYC was at 15 degrees) they were freezing, and of course my father in law got sick. Day 2 room still freezing, vents blowing cold air, and we are all wondering ...

Do you know what you get when you go on a ship with a capacity of 3,963 and there are 5900 people on board, the Worst Cruise Ever. I sailed on the Getaway out of NYC on 12/23/22. The weather was horrible (which I know was not NCLs fault) so we were stuck in port until 12/24. This resulted in a tax on every drink that we ordered for the time we were in port. The excursion to the private island ...
