Took this trip with 10 other people, including one 12 year old. Embarkation and Disembarkation went well but was slightly confusing as there appeared to be both cruisers coming and going in the same area in Seattle especially upon arriving ... Read more

We really enjoyed the freestyle cruising. We liked being able to change things up each night. The specialty restaurants were fantastic. We really enjoyed the steakhouse Cagneys. There was lots to do and my young adult children loved ... Read more

We went for a friend's 50th Birthday. I had special food needs and requested it from the cruise line over a month before the cruise. It was poorly planned by the cruise line and poorly executed. The wait staff never asked if anyone had ... Read more

Having 3 children aged 6,9 and 12, we had been looking for a cruise for a few years that was affordable for the 5 of us. We booked well in advance and managed a good deal aboard NCL with 2 cabins next door to one another. The whole ... Read more

We chose this cruise from Hamburg to Southampton mainly for the price in high season as the next cruise return to Southampton seemed to double in price. We also liked the idea of taking in the sights of Hamburg pre cruise as this was ... Read more

We have given Norwegian Cruise Line several tries. Our first experience was with the Gem, we felt it was dirty and run down. Chefs and waiters were rude. The employees seemed to hate their jobs. The second time we heard the Gem had some ... Read more

This was our second time cruising with NCL. Our first cruise was on the Spirit many years ago (NY - Cape Canaveral - Nassau - Great Stirrup Cay). We had an amazing time on that cruise and knew if we were to cruise again, it would be with ... Read more

We are confirmed Celebrity and Royal Carribean cruisers. We have gone on 15 cruises. I booked the cruise because of 2 grand children and the conversion rate of Marriott Destination Points into NCL. We took the cruise concerned with the ... Read more

I loved my experience on this cruise. Several things made it above and beyond the three other cruise lines I have experienced: 1. My child's peanut allergy was put into the system and every restaurant proactively took precautions to ... Read more

Our Alaskan cruise was a great trip for our family of 12 of all ages. 8 of us also went on the land tour to Denali in advance of the cruise. There was enough to do on the ship for the littlest (ages 5 and 9), the teens/young adults, and ... Read more

Grandson chose this ship because of the waterslides, as good a reason as any! He was right, excellent facilities for children of all ages. If so inclined parents could "dump" their children in Kids Club from 9/10am to 1.30am next ... Read more

We chose the Pride of America because of the destination and not the ship. For all practical purposes, it's the only game in town and a relative value if you wish to see several locations in 7 days. Nothing about this ship would compel us ... Read more
