Review for Norwegian Gem to Bahamas

I thought this was gonna be the funnest experience ever since this was my birthday cruise… but because they don’t social distance or anything, especially on the COVID pre board testing, I ended up catching the flu and had to stay in my room the remainder of the cruise!! Not cool! And I told them can I at least get some type of credit for my next trip and they said no that they don’t do that. This ...

My girlfriend and I were dying to get back on the ocean after the Pandemic. We had already had two cruises cancelled and this one was one of those, "let's just put a fall cruise on the books" type arrangements. Little did we know at the time, it would be our first cruise back. NCL is operating at reduced capacity with fully vaccinated crews and guests. This means, all the cruises right now ...

I decided to write this review during some downtime on the last day of our 7-day cruise to Bermuda, so that I wouldn't forget to do it upon returning home tomorrow. :) What a wonderful experience this first cruise post-COVID has been!! NCL really had everything covered to ensure a safe trip, with minimal difficulty at the terminal in NYC. The worst part was pre-trip, as we tried to interpret the ...

Let me start by saying that there was a lot of Good about this cruise. Just not enough. Had a nice time in Miami prior to my cruise. Embarkation went very smoothly (except they need to put a sign or arrow outside of the COVID Testing room or have an employee standing outside waving people in). Once I found my way into the testing area the process was simple and took about 15-20 ...

A fantastic return to NCL - NCL Breakaway.

It was exciting news when NCL announced a return to New York with weekly trips to Bermuda. They mentioned limited capacity, COVID vaccinated crews and passengers, and COVID testing prior to boarding. I was confident of their safe approach regarding COVID, and I could not be more impressed with the process and my cruise experience. The process of booking the cabin the NCL site was business ...

Cruising is back (who-hoo!) and no one should have any hesitation about booking a cruise on the Breakaway. My wife and I (both of us avid cruisers) were on the October 3rd sailing to Bermuda. It looks like NCL solved the boarding logistics issues they had with their prior cruise. Average time from arrival at the pier at 10:07 to boarding the ship, including COVID testing, was 1 hour 40 minutes - ...

Testing before: a lot! I also wasn’t impressed that I had to pay for additional testing and $150 to Bermuda tourism since this should’ve been, in my eyes, negotiated by Norwegian. I have a multi port trip next year and am ready to cancel—too expensive with this! The process when boarding was simple enough but a LOT of walking for older passengers with no assistance which worried me for them. ...

We took our last cruise on NCL Escape in August 2019 and absolutely LOVED it. We had planned on sailing on the Encore last year and then...well of course that didn't happen. As soon as we learned that NCL was resuming NYC to Bermuda cruises, we booked a Haven Spa Suite because we wanted to try the Haven and we loved the Thermal Suite on the Escape. Thermal Suite access comes with a Haven Spa ...

Uber dropped us off at the ship at 10:15. We walked a short distance to the right to another terminal, to have our Covid testing. We showed our passport, Eurofin email and Bermuda TA paperwork ( strongly suggest to have a hard paper copy). Proceeded to desk to “check in ” with Eurofins. Next step was the testing, no waiting. The technician takes 2 samples then you wait for results. Received ...

Worst communications and boarding process ever

We purchased an upgrade to the Haven, NCL's exclusive "ship-within-a-ship" experience. The lack of signage at the not-port-terminal that they used for pre-boarding covid testing had no signage directing people how and where to proceed. The pre-cruise email communications that most folks received regarding the Bermuda Travel Authorities requirements didn't arrive until the day prior to departure. ...
