"A beautiful beach day with soft black sand at Chiaiolella Beach Livorno-hired a van again (in advance) the driver met us right as we stepped off the ship and drove us to Porto Venere where we caught the ferry to Manarola-Cinque Terre.We then took the train back to La Spezia and our driver met us right there and took us to Pisa for 30 minutes (so kids could get a pic “holding up the tower”), then back to the ship...."Read More

We are a family of 6, mom, dad, 19, 17, 6, 3. July 24-31 BCN-BCN We had two cabins 10087 and 10088. Booked flights through NCL with one free flight included per cabin. Since we had two cabins, they actually booked flights for each cabin separately and our family was split up 3 and 3 on separate flight itineraries! I was shocked that they would do this, but when I called (on hold for an ...

We just got off a 7 night W Med cruise in and out of Civitavecchia. NCL was less than up-front about the availability of amenities onboard due to maintenance and staff shortages. In hindsight, they were dishonest. 3 days after our trip, the only email from NCL is a copy of our bill, no thank you, no follow-up. During our entire cruise both Spice H2O and the sports complex were closed due to ...

We were planning a family trip to the Mediterranean and booked 2 cabins. We all had issues with the entertainment on the boat. The entertainment included 2 worthy shows. A fabulous Pricilla Queen of the Desert and Burn the floor( dance show). There was a magician who had a kids show for adult entertainment! and that was it. There were bands playing in different clubs that were descent. Other ...

We began our cruise adventure with a wonderful TA she kept us as informed as humanly possible throughout the changes that were taking place. We booked three nights in Rome before the cruise and one night after. NCL put us up at the Golden Tulip it was a lovely old hotel not too far from the train station. Everything was very clean and the staff were great. We also purchased all of our shuttles ...

Simply put, we chose this particular cruise line and itinerary because of the price. It was literally 1/2 the price of Royal Caribbean and about 1/3 less than other cruise lines, along with all of the perks (free premium beverage package, Internet minutes, etc.) and the smaller ship size. Overall, the cruise didn't live up to our expectations. We've cruised RC and Princess in the past with ...

We sailed on Norwegian Epic July3-July10 2022 the ports of call were absolutely amazing and the shore excursions were top notch! The casino staff and the staff in the bar outside Cagney's are great! That is where my praise ends, the ship is gross. We had a mini-suite and our stateroom was dirty when we arrived; unidentified substance on wall in shower. We found a shirt on floor next to bed. Day ...

Cruised out of Rome and my flights and transfers were all organised by my agent with no issues whatsoever, met in Rome and although I thought the transfer was probably too long from being greeted to departing for the port on a shared 50 seater coach. Actual embarkation was straightforward and very quick and I was soon at my cabin. I needed proof of a negative covid test, vaccinations and that ...

I chose this cruise because of its beautiful European destinations and the cruise industry's repeated reassurance that COVID protocols were being successfully followed and transmission rates were low. The countries visited were amazing and had so much history. I truly enjoyed spending time with my family and all the perks that come along with cruising. I had waited 2 years to rebook this cruise ...

The cruise itself was okay. The pools are too small and the adult pool/Spice H2O was closed the last couple of days. We were given a $50 credit for the inconvenience.There are no lounge chairs in that area to lay out & they close early in the evening.The staff was very friendly and our steward was awesome, he was very attentive. As for the excursions, we spent too many hours traveling to each ...

We organised this cruise as a relaxing week in the sun for me and my wife, visiting a couple of new ports (for us) and a few old favourites. The pre-planning by Scotland's Cruise Centre was top notch. We flew from Edinburgh to Barcelona and jumped in a taxi to the port (39 Euros) without a hitch. The process of welcoming us on board was flawless and our luggage arrived at our stateroom within half ...
