Horror cruise

Review for a Africa Cruise on Norwegian Dawn

First Time Cruiser • Age 50s

Horror Cruise! Norwengian is no longer Norwengian! Since COVID, NCL cruises have deteriorated in an inexplicable way. We are on board the Dawn crossing from Africa to Europe. An outbreak of gastroenteritis on board. Hundreds with diarrhea, including crew. The same ship, on the last cruise before this one, had already been quarantined on the Mauritius Coast with cholera suspected. It seems they ...

Fascinating itinerary, but flawed execution

First Time Cruiser • Age 70s

There are going to be a lot of very negative reviews for this cruise, and there were many problems with it. There were four missed ports, an itinerary change after final deposits were made, and a lot of difficulties with ports that were visited. Additionally, the passengers on this cruise were exceptionally savvy travelers, and exceptionally sophisticated and experienced frequent cruisers with ...

I was disappointed with this cruise. I think NCL had a chance to make it something special but chose not to. We had only sailed on Norwegian once before and had not particularly enjoyed it but the itinerary that NCL originally offered with stops in West Africa, Cape Verde and Morocco was so unusual and interesting that we decided to give Norwegian another go. The first disappointment was that ...

Trouble on NCL Dawn in Africa

There is something definitely wrong on this ship. I got a stomach virus after 3 days of sailing and was put in isolation. After taking my medicine, I barely are for the subsequent 3 days. And, I got the bug, again. I traced my problem to a common denominator: Caesar Salad. The Captain ordered that crews must serve passengers in the buffet area. We aren't even allowed to get water by ourselves. ...

I wish I would’ve googled this ship before we booked, but I guess I gotta learn somehow. This was our first cruise with Norwegian and everyone was ranting and raving about how great everything is. The only thing they had going for them was embarkment and disembarking, that was super easy as long as you know what you are doing. Our room had a hull balcony, which is fine because I knew what those ...

I went on this cruise with relatives who were celebrating a big anniversary and I was in a solo studio. This was my first time on the Epic and I had a great cruise but my experience was likely very different from others who sailed on this ship recently. Reasons for this may be because this cruise had fewer people on it than others recently and it seemed as though there was a lot of new staff. I ...

Review for a Caribbean - Eastern Cruise on Norwegian Joy

This was our 2nd time on the Joy the first time in Haven this time balcony plus. Which is bigger bathroom. Overall the ship was clean after the 3 week drydock. Due to weather and rough seas we spent most of our time inside. The activities were very limited and usually basic bean bag toss, language lessons and trivia in the atrium. Then there were the usual art, bingo, and other extra charge games. ...

Review for a Transatlantic Cruise on Norwegian Joy

My wife and I sailed a Transatlantic cruise after the Joy came out of a 3-week dry dock. We have sailed 30-35 times, mostly on Celebrity and Azamara. Last NCL sailing was 2016. This specific crossing was 60% of capacity. The ship was clean and well maintained. Crew is ever present. The only location showing a bit of on-going construction was the area of the 24 newly-installed cabins where a ...

First Time Cruiser • Age 60s

Had a Balcony room on the 14th floor The Balcony had some serious rust issues to make it quite unappealing to sit outside. But when you get to a port and look at the rest of the ship, it's understood why, there is quite a bit of Rust showing thru..... while other cruise lines do painting maintenance while in port, never saw any NCL personnel with even a paint rush. It needs some serious ...

I travel on NCL quite a bit but the Epic was horrific. Did a B2B cruise Jan-28-2024 through 3-11-2024. LONG LONG LINES everywhere, whether dining, bars, venues. I've been on many NCL ships and other cruise lines, but nothing like this. The first leg of the trip, they ran out of lite beers on 5th day, and I'm not a beer drinker but EVERYONE was complaining. You had to wait 45 mins for a drink ...
