Norwegian Boston Cruise Reviews

US Coast Guard cutter making darkened ship/nighttime transit through canal.  Wonder why?
Evening conclusion of entire canal transit on Panama City/Pacific side.
Panama Canal transit.  New canal uses tugs vs tracked mules to keep vessels centered in the lock.
Beautiful ship.

This was my 5th cruise, first with norwegian. I thought we were getting a step above the usual. We were wrong. The staff are always fun and accommodating. Ship is clean and maintained beautifully. The ships band was fantastic, best entertainment on ship, we enjoyed them alone one night. We found the food disappointing, especially the buffet Cafe. The entertainment was poor. Only 2 good ...

First Time Cruiser • Age 40s

This was our 1st cruise. Our 17 year old boys turned 18 while on the ship. The beginning of the cruise was great. Seeing all decor was spectacular. Food was good and staff was great. We got to Bermuda and spent 2 days there. Was supposed to be 3 days but the cruise line changed the itinerary 1 week before we left and took one day away from 70's in Bermuda to 1 day in bar harbor Maine that was 38 ...

i have nothing but negative words to say about the norwegian cruise line. we had problems since walking on the ship. we came with 7 people sharing three rooms. getting on we were each given key cards to get into our rooms. which one after another didn’t work. we had to contact guest services several times to have them fixed yet they could not figure it out for us. one of the members we came with ...

Norwegian Cruise Did Not Live Up To Previous Standards

We chose this cruise because it departed from Boston near our home, so no need for airline travel. Also, it was during school vacation week so we could take our kids and grandkids with us. There were 10 of us with all cabins close to one another. The boarding process was difficult because the lines were horrendous and we had one person who uses a walker. We later learned that there was a ...

My wife and I have cruised before, but this was our first time on Norwegian. The ship was very clean and the service overall was very good (wait staff and room steward). We were pleased with our cabin (an interior stateroom). The food was better than we expected (given the many negative reviews we had previously read about the food). We especially enjoyed the fish entrees on the dinner menu, and ...

We chose this cruise because it was out of Boston so we did not have to fly to get to the ship., We had sailed on the Gem last year and enjoyed the ship so we figured we would do it again. We enjoy all the different places to eat on the ship, your are not limited to the dining room or the buffet or the specialty restaurants. The money we saved on airfare we put into a better cabin, the suite ...

2-5 Cruises • Age 60s

I love to cruise, have always gone on NCL, they leave out of Boston, which is great, but my complaints are always the same: cabins too small, bad poop odor in halls. Breakfast ends too early, all day breakfast not available. Music, singers, theater shows, MC's, games, singers, DJ's, and band around pool, way TOO LOUD!!! It drove us out of many activities. Movies in atrium would have been fun ...

We live just outside Boston and this was a 13 day round trip cruise from Boston which was perfect. I had recently been put on a restricted sodium diet and did worry about how that would work out over a 13 day cruise. I need not have worried as I had a woman meet with me every night to preorder my meal for the next night at whatever dining room we planned to eat. Including the specialty ...

I chose this cruise because it departed close to home and is an easy drive to the port . Once at the port and rounded like cattle and every one boarded . As the day went on I figure i would take a shower . The drain in my mini suit backed up and flooded my bathroom with all kinds of waste coming up from the floor drain . it took almost four hours for the plumber to even get there to look at it. ...
