Nickel and diming

We have cruises with Royal Caribbean, but it was 10+ years ago and more recently cruised with Princess. We wanted to try another company because the crowd on the Princess was quite a bit older and even in our mid ...

Could be WAY better

The overall experience on the Norwegian Bliss was just alright. One of the things you need to be prepared for is the constant service fees, 20% gratuity charges (which is already paid for ahead of time, so you ...

First the ship,is typical of trying to add more decks and rooms without any more elevators, dining or show room.With 4000 people it could be elbow-to-elbow. Folks were not rude, just TOO MANY! Ship was too long. We ...

Nickel & dimed, classism

We were excited when we heard about the new Norwegian encore boat and received a fair price for a 7-day cruise. We were disappointed to find out that almost everything on the boat was at an upcharge. When we pulled ...

Did not get the R&R we were hoping for. 1 pool very crowded with young adults.

Disappointed. We sailed in the NCL Breakaway in the Caribbean the week before Christmas 2019, and were hoping to have a relaxing time, but couldn't during the day. The one pool is small and very crowded with young ...

The Good: Food was excellent. Footloose was excellent. The Beatles revolution was great but make sure you show up an hour early if you want a seat at the cavern. Magic Show was okay. Elements was great! Go ...

You will spend more than you plan.

If you want to do anything fun and enjoyable on this ship, you have to pay extra for it. The complimentary dining options were poor. However, the specialty restaurants were great. A lot of people make dinner ...
