This cruise leaves from New York City...I live in Pennsylvania so no flying! I took my husband, our daughter, our son, his wife and our two grandsons. The mini-suites were not as large as on a Princess ship but we did not spend much ... Read more

I wanted to start off by saying my family loves Royal Caribbean and though they're top rated, their recent price hikes cause me to look else ware when searching a cruise vacation. With the help of Costco Travel, we got a great deal on our ... Read more

We chose this cruise because of past experience on the Breakaway. The Gem is a smaller and older vessel, but we did not feel rushed or had to stand in long lines for the buffet, main dining rooms, bars, etc. We traveled with with kids ... Read more

We had a travel agent, but found out more information on our own. We flew into Miami a few days early to dive in the keys so the airport transfers that were arranged by our agent weren't needed. She wasn't clear as to "how" we ... Read more

We choose this cruise because it was our first cruise experience and we wanted to "get our feet wet" with a short one. The fact that it was to Cuba convinced us to try one. Voyage was very calm, unlimited drinks a plus! ... Read more

I am not one for those huge mega ships. The Jewel was perfect, sailed on it twice! The Sky was definitely much smaller, a lot of pros to it, along with a lot of cons. PROS: Alcoholic beverages were included. Lots of elevators, and ... Read more

Over all good cruise. I was skeptical about the all inclusive alcohol but there were no issues with drunk people. Drinks per day were not counted, no cards required. Boarding was delayed by several hours and we were herded aboard like ... Read more

We always cruise Norwegian. My only issue was the shore excursions. I didn't care for the Stirrup Cay shore excursion. People were leaving dirty plates everywhere and the birds were circling around pecking at plates left on tables. ... Read more

We have cruised with other cruise lines and wanted to experience NCL. The ship is huge but has organization issues. The main pool is a disaster. It is too small for a ship of this size. Lack of space for chairs around pool is ... Read more

We will strongly consider Norwegian for our next cruise. Here's why... Flexible dining was great. Specialty dining options were excellent, especially Cagney's. O'Sheahan's Irish Pub was great -- open 24 hours! Leaving from our home ... Read more
