Fabulous Trip

This was our first cruise on NCL. We booked this cruise almost a year and half before the sail date. We had not been on a cruise in approximately 10 years, the last cruise being on a different cruise line on a ship ...

Fun ship with lots to do

This was our first time cruising with NCL. Embarkation and disembarkation went smoothly from the ship. The terminal was another story. The ship was big, beautiful and clean. All of the staff (except one) we ...

Lots of Ups and Downs but overall a positive experience.

The trip was definitely uneven starting with the loading process. We waited online for about 1.5 hours to get on the ship and found that most of the employees were not helpful at this point until someone complained ...

Good but could have been better!

Too crowded at times, not personalized, nothing out of the ordinary. We normally have at least have one night where lobster is offered in general dining on cruises with other carriers and it was not offered on NCL. ...

Much to like and dislike on this ship

We chose this cruise because we wanted to go to Bar Harbor Maine. We like sailing out of New York City. We were on the ship by 11:45 am. The ship was completely full and many times this presented a problem. There ...

Great New England Cruise

We went on this cruise for my in-laws 60th wedding Anniversary, we anticipated it would an older crowd and we weren't wrong. The cruise staff was fantastic, the passengers weren’t your typical rowdy pool crowds. ...

Excellent Escape Voyage

We came in on Thursday from PDX and stayed in Newark at the ex-Hilton (now Doubletree) Newark Penn Station as we needed two hotel rooms and NYC at this time was bit too expensive. The hotel needs some work even for ...

Excellent service on a ship that felt very spacious

I chose this cruise to do something "different" than the warm weather carribean. I personally loved this cruise, it was relaxing and laid back. We had perfect weather, so this was a huge bonus I wasnt expecting ...

Try Another Cruise Line

Returned yesterday from New England 8 Day Cruise. Where to begin with issues. First, our Mini-suite is more like a coffin with a bath, not nearly as nice as RC Jr. Suites. Day 2, locked out of cabin (as were several ...

Mediocre cruise for an above-average price

This was an extremely average cruise, and by the time we were done, I felt like our "good deal" had become "a little too expensive." I have written a very detailed review below, but if you want a TL;DR here you go: ...

Several issues before, during and after the cruise, but overall very good

First real time issue we had was boarding. Our cruise ship pulled in late, due to bad weather from a hurricane brewing off the coast so they apparently went around it. We knew about the late arrival because our ...

Worst ever at NCL

After 18 NCL cruises we decided this was the worst one! The problem of being on so many cruises with NCL creates an automatic comparison on overall and on particular events. Lets face it the cruise director and ...

Haven on NCL Escape

We have been on many NCL cruises usually in a balcony cabin. NCL tends to nickel and dime its passengers on most items. Free perks are not really free as you are required to pay a 20% gratuity unlike Celebrity ...
