I have sailed with two other cruise ship companies and this by far was the best. Next best was Princess. Stayed in Balcony stateroom that was always clean. Room was smaller than other cruise ships we have been on but had a good size ... Read more

We decided to celebrate our 50th anniversary by taking a cruise. Since this was our first cruise, I did a lot of research and Norwegian seemed the best fit because it provided options. The overall cruise exceeded our expectations. The ... Read more

We chose this cruise because of prior great experiences on NCL cruises and we wanted to experience the "fall colors cruise" of New England. The ship has been recently refurbished and is great (except the Venetian dining room ... Read more

We did BTB cruises, Canada, then Bermuda. We had sailed on the Dawn before she was refurbished, and she's definitely been spruced up! They've added a Mexican restaurant that opened July 1, and it's gaining in popularity. We ate there ... Read more

We are a group of friends who travel together every year. We thought a cruise to see fall in Canada and New England would be fun. We chose between Norweigan and Cunard based on price. We should have chosen differently. Everything costs ... Read more

We cruised aboard the GEM Sept 24 - Oct 1 and we had a fabulous time. We found the crew to be very helpful and the food was great. Now to be fair we were suite passengers in Cabin 15500 so we did get treated very special. The Haven lap ... Read more

We have been on this itinerary and ship several times and have always enjoyed it. The recent refurbishment of public areas give the ship a more tasteful decor, however the "spinner" chairs in the Spinaker Lounge and other ... Read more

Had an enjoyable time on the cruise. Everything on the ship was extremely clean and neat. No trash left anywhere. Staff was awesome. The weather was chilly windy and overcast most of the time so outdoor activities such as the pool ... Read more

I chose this cruise as part of a casino junket. Rooms and bathrooms are very small. Food at buffet was terrible every day. Tried to order their specialty dining program in advance and they did not honor their advertisement because they ... Read more

My wife and I have travelled this itinerary for the past 7 years. Our trip this year was somewhat disheartening. The balcony cabin and cabin steward were good, although the steward was fully aware of the free laundry services we were ... Read more

There was no middle ground, things we're really good or really bad-bordering on deplorable. The really bad was the customer service. We had a reservation to board the ship in Quebec City at 10am. However they didn't even open the doors ... Read more

I spent pre-cruise nights in Boston, and post-cruise nights in Quebec City, on this Canada/New England cruise. The independent stays really enhanced my cruise experience as i was able to explore the two cities in depth rather than spend ... Read more

Was not impressed overall. The staff always seemed unimpressed at their choice of employment and even were as candid as stating since Oceania took over things have been on the decline. The bartenders were probably the least friendly staff ... Read more

We wanted to visit Eastern Canada and New England in the fall. We chose this cruise to avoid a lot of driving between the Maritime Provinces and for the fact that it cruised from Boston which eliminated the need to fly. From the Midwest, ... Read more

We've used NCL three times in the past 10 years & have been very happy with them. That is until they started their FREE choice program (I.e. Unlimited beverages, specialty dining, Internet or excursion discounts). It's my opinion ... Read more

I had hoped to pick the time the leaves would be colorful; however, New England/Canada leaves don't appear to start changing colors until early October. We also chose this cruise because getting to and from New York City is a non-stop ... Read more
