Great cruise itinerary, just bad weather

This was the second part of our back to back cruise holiday, after doing a nine day Baltic cruise, unfortunately the bad weather continued. Tropical storm Leslie hung around the North Atlantic for over a month, with 40 knot winds and 3 to 5 metre swells making life on board uncomfortable on most days. We did make all of our ports on this cruise and we enjoyed good weather while in each of the ...

Overall, the trip was fine, but I truly object to the mandatory daily "service charge" that supposedly pays gratuities to the people behind the scenes. I did some investigating and found out that the benefit they derive from that is PATHETIC and not nearly enough to tip and compensate the people that we interacted with on a daily basis. Furthermore, I have never been on a ship that had so many ...

Too many people and not enought things to do. The theater is way too small for the 4500 people. At 45 minutes before an open show, all seats are taken. So you miss most of them. You can get seats at the pay for view shows, but who can pay the fees they want to collect for them. It seems that everything inside has an steep added fee. Just like the airlines are now doing. Indoors only three decks ...

We decided to try a transatlantic cruise and we liked the ports. We also like Norwegian. The ship is big so there is a lot of walking, but laid out well. The crew was wonderful and we loved the fellow passengers. There was something for everyone. There were handicap people on the ship who seemed to get around okay. They have studios for singles with a special lounge. We particularly liked ...

Actually it was a YMT offer which they selected NCL not us. However, we chose it for combination of reasons: time of year, price, a cruise with bus trip in U.S. and ports of call were of interest. We were a little disappointed port changed from Amsterdam to Gothenburg but it was a lovely city and we enjoyed ourselves. Let me start with we have cruised 3x before so have a comparison, first time ...

We thought it would be fun. We were not particularly impressed by the Breakaway and would not go on it again. There is not enough spaces available to get away to, because it was cold outside. We heard this from others as well. The best spots were always taken by those who got up very early in the morning and we could never sit by a window. The Atrium was too small to handle everything and ...

We did the Transatlantic Cruise previously on a May sailing and enjoyed it. This cruise was less enjoyable than the previous cruise. Activities were held in the Atrium which did not have room enough for the 3000+ people on the ship. Service in the restaurants has declined. Dinners took 2 hours to complete. Meals that were served in the complementary dining rooms were very basic with no WOW ...

The restaurants were very good especially the speciality group. Service at all venues and bars was friendly, prompt and well done. For port excursions, we were pleased with them all on this cruise and the ports we visited were ones we had not experienced before so that added to our enjoyment. The entertainment was quite good even though one show was not our cup of tea, but for other passengers it ...

This cruise was wonderful! I particularly enjoyed the “Freestyle” format. The venues provided everyone with a variety of options for dining. The Manhattan Room was my personal favorite. The staff was both pleasant and efficient. Entertainment on this beautiful shop was first rate. The “Adele” tribute was incredible. There was something for everyone to enjoy. Port stops, though short, were ...

This was the cruise for us!! Four stops in a transatlantic package!! Ideal! It was our first experience on a larger ship and it was a worthwhile experience. The facilities were luxurious and the ropes course was sprine tingling! Our cabin was perfect for us, not fancy but it had everything we needed including a surprising amount of storage space and the entertainment was outstanding! Totally ...
