Not what it's advertised to be. At sea days, very poor shipboard activities. They exist, but are short. When you are so bored you find yourself in the library playing checkers, there is a problem. Although many of ...

Worst customer service all around!

This was our 4th cruise with Norwegian first on the Breakaway. I have never experienced a more reluctant crew to provide service. Many staff members were too busy talking/visiting with each other or cell phones. ...

Just Finished my 2nd and Last Cruise on the EPIC - Poor Customer Service !!!!

I am a Platinum Member with NCL and am struggling with what is wrong with them. I hope it was just the Epic, but I am not really sure as it may be fleet wide. This was the worst cruise I have ever experienced and it ...

Too Many People For the Facilities On The Ship

We sail on Norwegian out of Manhattan because it is very convenient. However, The Bliss seemed to have too many people for the facilities on the ship. The main areas were always crowded with people. There was ...

My least favorite NCL ship

I have cruised with NCL a handful of times, and have always been satisfied with the value for your money. This would be my first trip where I don’t feel that way. To be fair, the weather can never be predicted ...

Disappointment

I chose NCL Bliss because I cruised with NCL in the past and had a great time. The last cruise I took was earlier this year on the Royal Caribbean. So, I thought I would give NCL another shot. We were going to hold ...
