Nice ship but it’s like being on a week long timeshare information session.

The ship was very clean and the staff were very friendly and helpful overall. The food in the buffet was usually cold and bland, sometimes inedible. It was incredibly busy up there and difficult to find seating. ...

Very enjoyable but with room to improve

I decided to take vacations the last moment (needed a break from a stressful work assignment) so once I decided on the destination, an Alaska cruise, I got what was still available so it wasn't really a thorough ...

We did it our way, and loved it!

This was our second cruise, but it took us over 20 years to try again because our first one wasn't a pleasant experience. So I'll start with why we selected this particular cruise and why it was so much fun for us ...

Bring your ear plugs!

More details later, but a quick explanation of the ear plugs. NCL has the volume turned up WAY TOO LOUD on all speaker systems. Even with my ear plugs in, it hurt my ears. Other than this, we really enjoyed the ...

Cruise was lacking, service poor, food marginal

We chose this ship for its touring of Glacier National Park and for the onboard amenities like race track, laser tag, etc. What strikes me is the utter lack of good service. Every restaurant we went too, the servers ...

Alaska is gorgeous!

We had beautiful weather. No rain at all. In Juneau it was about 78 and Skagway about 72. The ride through Glacier Bay was beautiful. You don’t stop. Book your tours ahead of time through Viatour. So much cheaper ...

Good ship for the Caribbean but NOT good for Alaska

As an experienced cruiser, (this is my 9th cruise) I expected this to be a very relaxing and enjoyable itinerary. Unfortunately, this ship is definitely not designed for Alaska. A tremendous amount of space was ...

Not So Blissfully Simple..Why NCL earned my respect.

I have read a few of the most recent reviews and I feel the need to defend NCL because I am hearing a lot of the same complaints I heard on the ship. Yes, there were multiple medical emergencies, that's what happens ...
