The Fun went from "Maybe" to "Scabies"

I chose this cruise for my boyfriend and I because it seemed like a good bang for your buck at the time. Plus, I'm not a huge fan of flying and thought this could be a fun alternative. The cruise itself was super ...

I'm a Latitudes Gold member and I will never cruise NCL again.

We just completed the Boston to Bermuda cruise (10/20 - 10/27) on the NCL Dawn and I was never so happy to be home. Our cabin (8157) was located directly above the Bliss nightclub and when I tell you that music was ...

Cheaters

NCL is its worst enemy. The corporation makes terrible decisions and expects the crew to take the heat. The new latitude program is a perfect example. The loyalty was paid off by taking our earned rewards away. ...

Had sailed on NCL 10 or 11 times but never again. Cruiser beware.

The staff was horrible, the food was horrendous and the entertainment was almost non existent. You can no longer bring water or soda on board but you can bring wine probably because they charge a corkage fee. Don't ...
