Horrible Experience

|

The ship was very compartmentalized. No large open area atrium to enjoy. The food was absolutely horrible. We have traveled NCL and other cruise lines in the past and have never experienced such a bad experience ...

STAY AWAY FROM NORWEGIAN CRUISELINE

I have been on 5 cruises previously with 4 different cruiselines (including Disney, Princess, and Royal Carribean). My experience on Norwegian Gem was by far the worst. 1. The stateroom is poorly designed, with ...

Do not celebrate your special occasions here!

When I made the reservation for my friend and I and our husbands, I mentioned to NCL agent that we are celebrating my 44 year anniversary. Big year right? Who can say that these days! The agent told me they will ...

Too small, too cheaply done, terrible, terrible!

This ship went to the towns that I wanted to visit and ended up in Quebec City, Canada, which was important to me. The rooms were itty-bitty. The bath had doors to toilet, etc. but no more than 1/2 of a ...

My 20th cruise, and the WORST ever

This was the MOST boring cruise of my life. That would have been a minor complaint had Norwegian not completely dropped the ball on every single aspect of the cruise. Our dinner at the Steakhouse was average at ...

Don't be Disabled!

Absolutely every time I go on NCL I notice more and more staffing cuts which are severely affecting the overall quality of cruising taking it down to an all time low. No service on the pool deck for drinks (have to ...

YOU CANNOT MAKE THIS UP

We choose this cruise because we wanted to see the fall colors and this seemed like a good way to do it. WRONG, of the four ports to visit, Bar Harbor was cancelled due to fog. We later learned it was because the ...

Never Again

We chose this cruise because my friend uses a wheelchair and assumed, after many calls, that the answers she received would be accurate. They were not, so much was not accessible to her. Our handicapped ...

Cruising New England

NCL has always been good to us. No exceptions this time around. We expected the same great experience and got it. We had an inside cabin, small but cozy. Had a great time enjoying all the venues. Did the ...

Average Service, Bad Internet Connection, and No Responsibility by NCL

Internet connection for the length of cruise is a scam. It is slower than dial-up. Its down most of the time. It can be used only for emails and text via IP. NCL will not take any responsibility because they have ...

Finished with NCL

We sailed on the Jewel to Alaska in July and were disappointed in the ship and food, but gave NCL one more try. We were so excited about the ports for the Northeast Canada sailing, but we missed two ports - and ...

Never again will I travel with Norwegian Cruise Line

We chose this cruise to see the Fall colours in Canada. This was our first cruise with NCL and we had no reason to be biased. We travelled with 3 other couple, one of whom had traveled on a NCL ship before and told ...
