This was our first cruise with Norwegian Cruise lines, and it was also the last. We have done several cruises with Celebrity and Royal Caribbean. This cruise line does not measure up for us. We paid $4,000 to upgrade from an inside ... Read more

As this was our first cruise, I did some research and had some concern; hidden charges, draconian rules that some lines impose, and being swamped with thousands of people on the ship and ashore None of these turned out to be a problem on ... Read more
