View from our balcony in the morning sun.
The free shuttle to St. George operate by NCL.
The best entertainment on board, in my humble opinion. The Beatle Story, one of the best Beatles Tribute band around and we have seen Let It Be and Rain on Broadway.

We did this cruise because we wanted to try a new ship and a new location. We stayed at the Hampton Inn in New Jersey for the park and sail. It was a short ride to the pier. The process to board the ship was very easy. Of course, it helped that we were in the Haven. The room was fine but we really hated the tub/shower combo. We had to get a step stool to get into the shower. In the end, my wife ...

EMBARKATION NYC: This will require a lot of patience on the part of the passenger. If you have any leg, hip, or back problems it can become a nightmare. First of all we signed up for the 9:00-9:30 arrival time. This is a misnomer. They did not even begin security check in until 9:30 or later. We arrived at 8:50 and waited in an already decent size line of people until they opened up ...

I am a loyal Norwegian cruiser and Norwegian Cruise Line Holdings shareholder. I've enjoyed vacations on 4 of their ships before this one. I love the Breakaway/Breakaway+ class of ships. This was my first cruise back since the pandemic. I need to start by stating that the crew have been marvelous. The room: I booked a Club Balcony Minisuite as a way to celebrate my return to cruising. I ...

I chose Norwegian Joy because of the itinerary to Bermuda which was my first time visiting there. Bermudas beaches are the clearest most beautiful beaches I've experienced. Great for snorkeling and water activities. I will definitely come back. I did several excursions with the cruise since it was my first time there. Next time I will explore on my own. We did the Caves and Waves excursion which ...

We booked a 7 day cruise for 5 people in a 2-bedroom villa in the Haven. Cruise destination was to Norfolk, VA and Bermuda. We had not been to Bermuda before, so we were only interested in the Bermuda port. What a great place! We rarely saw our butler, and never really asked him to do much for us. He did bring snacks every afternoon and put them in the room, however, most of the time we ...

If you like to wait in line take this cruise. Bermuda now requires a travel authorization to be filled out pay 40.00 per person. Then when you get to the pier wait in line to get this document APPROVED by the bermuda government. Norwegian does not tell you about this before you book only after they have your money. Stay away and go somewhere elsewhere Like I said you will wait in line all day ...

I sailed on the Norwegian Joy to Bermuda from NY on May 1. 2022 and paid a substantial amount to stay in a Haven Courtyard Suite with large balcony. The room and the room steward were excellent, but that's where the superlatives end. I stayed in the Haven on the NCL Getaway recently and was very pleased. However, I was extremely disappointed with the Haven experience on the NCL Joy. To begin ...

We have been waiting to rebook the 2 Bedroom Haven since Covid. I choose the Joy because of the length (5 nights)was a perfect length to travel w/our special needs son. Husband wasn't able to accompany us because he not vaccinated. We came home positive, glad now he stayed home. The ship was absolutely beautiful!! I can't say enough about the Heaven, the staff, food and service was amazing! I ...

We had a magnificent time aboard this beautiful and majestic ship from the minute we stepped on until we were back home in Miami! I cannot commend the crew enough on how well they took care of everyone and what attention to detail was given to every part of the cruise experience. The entertainment was top quality, the food was exquisite no matter whether you were at the buffet or in a specialty ...
