Review for a Caribbean - All Cruise on Norwegian Prima

10+ Cruises • Age 80s

For perspective, over the past 20+ years, my wife and I have now been on 13 NCL cruises, each of 11-30 days length; we have also been on 17 Celebrity/RCCL cruises, also of the same duration. We were very much looking forward to our first cruise on the Prima because it is relatively new, and for the several positive reviews of its cabins, and of the Indulge Food Court experience, among others. In ...

We chose this cruise because of its duration and destinations. Be aware, if you book air (bogo) through NCL and your cruise price drops, you will not get any redress for this issue, you must book your air independently. Most cruisers on this cruise received a $500 cruise credit because prices dropped. We were booked on a red eye both ways, dropped at airport 7 hrs before flight, unable to even ...

The ship is new, beautiful, greatly designed and built. The bad is that NCL did offer incredible low prices in the last 3 or 4 weeks, after we had booked and overfilled the ship. It was very unconfortable not been able to get a seat at any bar, the shows, rock place, etc. I have cruised for more than 160 days with NCL, but my previous trips were before Covid 19, I am dissapointed with many things ...

NCL is definitely shifting the business model.. this ship was league's below in quality of spaces and services over previous NCL experiences (bliss, breakaway, spirit etc). Generally, the uplifts are extreme now.. general "complimentary" dining is much smaller and somewhat lowered quality. Perhaps 1/3 of ship is dedicated to Haven now and they visibly are dumbing down the included options in ...

We picked this thinking it would be a good adventure. NYC cruise port,problem long lines waiting, hard on elderly, when a women asked for a seat,quote you can sit on the floor. Staff delivered food , drinks,none for passengers. Shame Ncl cruise good food variety, nice theater shows very professional. Clean ship pleasant staff. Downside lines at every venue. No seats on deck,or towel taken. Try ...

The comment from a dining room supervisor on our last morning sums up how Norwegian see their customers. “We need you to move on so we can get ready for the next batch of people”. It wasn’t even 9am and we hadn’t finished breakfast. We have previously sailed with Norwegian on two smaller ships (Spirit and Pearl) and thoroughly enjoyed it. After sailing on the Epic and now the Breakaway we will ...

First Time Cruiser • Age 40s

We had to line up for hours outside the terminal in NYC in freezing temps, I saw an ambulance take away an elderly man who collapsed. The food in the main dining areas was sub-standard, we paid the excess to eat at the better quality restaurants, and there was a massive difference in quality. We booked a stateroom with a balcony when we arrived it wasn't cleaned, there was dust and human ...

14-n-cruise from New-York to New Orleans. Loved the itinerary and the value for money. Got a big deal including drink package, 3 specialty restaurants, 300 minutes internet and gratuities. Staff was friendly and helpful. Food was tasty, but unspectacular. Would I sail NCL again? No!!! In many aspects we had the impression that the ship was not ableto handle the number of guests it was ...

I cruised with my husband; this was our 9th cruise with NCL and our 16th overall. We like leaving from NYC because we live in NJ and prefer not having to fly to disembarkation port. We chose this cruise because we haven’t been to the southern Caribbean and we were especially interested in a Panama Canal visit. Getting onto the ship from the Manhattan Cruise Port was delayed due to “Coast ...

It has been just over a year since our cruise on the Prima and our first ever on Norwegian, at the end of February 2023. I have now fully processed our experience and can give an honest review, instead of an emotional one. Let me preface my evaluation by again reminding myself, and anyone reading, that we are beyond fortunate to even have the ability to sail to beautiful locations and our ...
