Too much secrecy about issues

We wanted a warm getaway in winter and Panama canal transit sounded great. Lots was available to do on the ship, but nearly every activity required extra $$$. In addition, there were several issues that either no crew working directly with passengers had info about, OR they had been instructed to say nothing to passengers. It started with the Norwegian-provided transportation from LAX airport ...

I have always cruised with NCL and have had great experiences! So was looking forward to this cruise as it was a late birthday present to celebrate my 50th! My last cruise I had gone on celebrity and that was just as horrible! Thank goodness no Norovirus! We were able to get free flights and it was with United Airlines ! Oh my goodness worst airline ever! Had a layover in SAN Francisco. ...

I chose this cruise because it was a free cruise offered from the local casino. The room I was provided was the farther possible walk from any elevator. Because of the location, the noise level was intolerable. I was unable to sleep most nights because of loud banging metal noises throughout the night. We could also hear the loud toilets flushing all around us. The ship was overcrowded and ...

We felt like family when we went there. Very ...

2-5 Cruises • Age 60s

We decided to cruise for our 40th. wedding anniversary. We elected an Alaskan cruise on the Norwegian Joy. This was the worst mistake we have ever made making vacation plans. Prior to boarding we were advised to select our shows and to book our three (3) speciality restaurants. We did all of this months prior to sailing. We boarded the ship and after a few hours were told we could go to our ...

10+ Cruises • Age 70s

We chose this particular cruise to try out the bigger ships (had to try the go Karts) The embarkation out of Seattle was not a good experience, not even taking the construction into account. Of course there were huge lineups, but only The Haven and the regular line was available. What happened to Platinum and suite lines? There also seemed to be 2 levels and one Haven couple was sent from ...
