This is a cruise for poor folk

|

This cruise was a joke- we had a spa floor room and the spa was closed much of the trip due to "repairs" and the spa level roomed smelled more like chlorine than a spa. We were totally disappointed in what we ...

Somewhat disappointing

This was our fourth NCL Cruise. I have to say when we compared it to our 14 Princess and 10 HAL, if we were to choice same route and dollar for Dollar, NCL would be dead last and have to be significantly cheaper. ...

At Least We Had The Spa Pass

We have always sailed NCL and loved it but it had been a couple of years because of personal issues and it is not the cruise line I remembered. From embarkation forward it was a series of disorganization, poor ...

Dock in Bermuda on Sunday - CLOSED

Average experience overall

For a newer LARGE cruise ship we expected more of a "WOW" factor in the public spaces and different areas of the ship to relax or be entertained in. We found the same basic layout of shops, different dining ...

Amazing!! We can’t wait to cruise with NCL again!

We choose NCL for our first cruise because of their beautiful ships and the free offers. Our embarkation port was Manhattan NY which was only about 2 1/2 hours from our home. The process of parking and checking in ...

Long weekend in Bermuda

This was a short 5 day cruise in November so we did not expect good weather. Bermuda as always was wonderful, even if it was raining one day. The water was too cold for me to go in, but the beach was lovely. The ...

Norwegian Escape Solo Cruise

I chose this cruise because it coincided with a "girls trip" my wife was on. It also had a Solo Cruisers section that I found attractive since I would not have to book a double occupancy room as a solo traveller. ...

"Haven" a Great Time!

What a fantastic trip from embarkation to disembarkation. The Haven truly is worth the upgrade cost. When my family of 4 arrived at the Pier in NYC, we saw a daunting line of people waiting to check in, and luckily, ...

A great ESCAPE from the real world.

We spent the weekend in New York before departing on our cruise and the stark contrast between the hustle and bustle of "the city that doesn't sleep" and our week of relaxation at sea was truly remarkable. As an ...

Great mother/daughter trip but I may be over cruising for awhile

We chose this cruise within one month of sailing because Mom wanted to go back to Bermuda and we were able to take the train so she didn't have to fly. Mom is 88 and I am 65. This was my seventh time on Norwegian, ...
