The trip was intended as a simple family getaway with minimal additional travel beyond the cruise itself since we live within an hour of the Boston port. Overall, the trip was good. Food was very acceptable in quality and of course ... Read more

We've experienced many cruise lines and looked forward to trying NCL. The Escape is a beautiful ship, however it does not have any quiet adult place to sun and escape except my stateroom balcony. The pool areas are not equipped to handle ... Read more

We love the included packages like unlimited adult beverages and so on. That is what initially made me try it plus good reviews. The Gem is smaller and the cruise was a lot more expensive than Caribbean ones but that is because it was ... Read more

We did a Bermuda cruise out of Boston on June 9-16. We liked the Friday departure and the price was much better out of Boston. This cruise spent almost 3 days in Bermuda. We arrived in the afternoon on Sunday and stayed through 5:00 PM ... Read more

Reviews from other family and friends had told us that this was one of the best cruise ships. And my husband found it to be very nice so much so we are sorry that we did not take advantage of the promotion where you pay $250. and Norwegian ... Read more

This was our second cruise on the Spirit and it's showing its age. The staff works hard to make it look fresh but the decor needs updating and some maintenance is required to meet the standard of other ships in the NCL fleet. Interesting ... Read more

This was my first Norwegian cruise. I was advised by a friend and my travel agent to choose a different line. However, I read about The Haven and wanted to try it. There was only one Courtyard penthouse suite left, so my TA grabbed it ... Read more

The cruise we chose was a 14 day Western & Eastern Caribbean. In fact it was two one week cruises and we had to disembark at the end of the first week and then embark for the second cruise. This process was slow and cumbersome, not ... Read more

Long Review We booked this cruise last minute. Literally within one week of sailing. We live on the West Coast so it took some fancy footwork to get everything arranged. At first we thought we would try an inside cabin guarantee. It ... Read more

The cruise was recommended by another NCL ship person. This ship was designed differently from other NCL ships. Someone on the ship said it was made in France and was the only NCL ship from there. If you want any bathroom privacy this is ... Read more

It seemed at every turn, this cruise was perfect. The staff- from the Hotel Director, Sean and his Assistant Errol, to our cabin steward, Christopher- were on top of everything. We had a Mini-Suite w/ Balcony- our room was always clean and ... Read more

I decided this cruise because it fit our schedule (my wife and I) to get away with my wife and enjoy the warm weathers (for a bit). To disconnect from the busy world we live and get some alone time. To contextualize our trip: 1) We ... Read more
