2nd time cruising first time on Norwegian. First off let me tell you hands down the most polite, fun and welcoming staff. Norwegian may have some work to do but their staff is top of the notch. We booked a family ocean view room for 5 of us. My kids are older so basically 5 adults in one room and the room was spacious only down fault with the ocean view room the windows are not clean and hard ...

Due to having to use tenders, one port was canceled. At the other two, it took hours to re-board. The cruise director did a TERRIBLE job of communicating in Cozumel. Yes, there were a lot of ships which I understand makes it more congested. However, they refused to communicate over the loudspeakers as to how we were to disembark on the tenders, leading to mass confusion. It took us 4 hours to get ...

We have sailed many cruise lines and this is a one and done for us. Customer service is poor to non existent. Never heard a staff member ever say anything gratuitis. They never greet you nor do they say thank you, have a great day....nothing. Even when they screw up, they dont apologize, they just look at you and insinuate its you problem not theirs. Food was barely ok. Not cruise caliber ...

The room assignment was a bait and switch

The timing worked out for this cruise as we were planning to be in Orlando at this time and this cruise was leaving Port Canaveral. Also, we had never taken an NCL cruise so after over 20 cruises on five other lines we wanted to try this one. We opted for the Sail Away oceanview state room. This allowed NCL to select our room. In spite of the words in their disclaimer we never thought they ...

Not what it's advertised to be. At sea days, very poor shipboard activities. They exist, but are short. When you are so bored you find yourself in the library playing checkers, there is a problem. Although many of the staff members were wonderful, there were also rude, arrogant and outright nasty crew members as well. I have been on three different cruise lines and this one by far was the most ...

The Ship: We got what we expected out of the cruise. There were some things though that stood out that we did not like. Number one, my husband is a recovering alcoholic (22 years) so he did not want to buy the drink package. But since I bought the drink package he was forced to buy it, even though he also bought the soda package. I feel this was unfair and a waste of our money. Number two, the ...

My family has travelled on many cruises (15+) and cannot say we have ever had one bad experience. We have been on Carnival, Princess, Celebrity, and Costa and have never complained or been disappointed with any trip before. We were looking forward to this Norwegian cruise as we had heard that Norwegian cruises had really improved and updated their ships. I can honestly say I was blown away at what ...

We had been planning this as our family Christmas gift for several months. We are a family of 4, husband and wife early 50s, 14 yo son, 17 yo daughter. Cruise started off rocky when we noticed our drink packages missing from our key cards. Who wants to spend the first exciting hours of a cruise in guest services lines. Upside, the problem was easily remedied and that crew member very pleasant. ...

I wanted to visit Costa Costa Maya and Belize. I was looking forward to see the Ruinas Mayas. We had a wonderful cruise and we feel to not enough time to see and enjoyed all the activities that the ship offer to the cruisers. from the weather to the food, drinks, music and service everything was great. The cabin was clean and very comfortable like in my previous cruises. The staff is very ...

Being our first cruise ever, we picked this cruise because of pricing. We were not able to make good connecting flights, so we ended up staying one night on either end of cruise. We found it very expensive staying in Florida, we used air miles to pay for hotel, but between Uber or taxis and eating, we found it to be expensive, especially converting to CAD. Plus the weather was horrible, which ...
