NCL needs a lot of work

This was not my first cruise, but it was my first cruise on NCL. It will also be my last. I will start with what was good about the cruise. The breakfast and dinner was very good. We did not eat in the buffet. We ate breakfast at Savor or Taste each morning and for dinner ate there as well or at the Tropicana. Lunch in the buffet was gross. Our room was also a good size. We were in a mid ship ...

I planned the cruise 3 weeks ahead of time for spring break with my husband. We both have never been on a cruise. We disembarked from our port hours later than expected but we didn’t care exploring the ship was fun. The cruise went from NY to Port Carnaval FL, great stirrup cay and Nassau Bahamas. Total of 7 nights. We arrived late for every port, coming back home we were early. Here’s some ...

My Mother and I booked this cruise just two weeks prior to sailing and the timing was perfect. My Mother will turn 90 in July and has limited mobility, I purchased a light weight transport wheelchair and that made the cruise so much easier for my Mother to enjoy the cruise. We booked a "Sail a Way" Mini Suite, which meant that we did not choose the cabin location, however received a very ...

The problems started out with Embarkation. As Latitudes members we were supposed to have Priority Check-in. When we got to the terminal, it was only for Gold or higher. So we got in a line that ending up taking 1 1/2 hours to check in. Next we were supposed to sail at 3..didn;t leave dock til 5:10. Docked in first port over 2 hours late so shore excursions were shortened (or cancelled). Our bus to ...

We chose this cruise as we traveled with our son's family with grandkids ages 8, 5. and 2 and didn't want to fly. It was Easter week so we knew there would be lots of kids. My husband and I are seasoned cruisers having cruised over 40 times with carnival, celebrity, holland america, royal caribbean, princess and cunard. Embarkation - Horror show - We arrived at the port at 11;30am and it took ...

10+ Cruises • Age 70s

This was a family cruise that had been planned for some time and with much anticipation. When we boarded there was no one to greet us as we entered the ship...again no one. Numerous bars were not open during the daytime and then could not prepare your cocktail of choice. Our meals were mediocre at best, dress codes were ambiguous and not adhered to. Service was exceptionally slow regardless of ...

First Time Cruiser • Age 30s

The cruise was good, however there were some things that were very lacking 1) The complimentary dining room foods was ok, but did not taste fresh. For the price paid, I would expect more quality food. Lots of options though. 2) not enough bartenders, there was always a wait for drinks and most of the bartenders were not friendly and seemed bothered to serve you 3) NOT ENOUGH 21+ ...

It was first time cruising with my granddaughter and husband, it was my gift for her 12th birthday,and of course spring break and Easter holidays. So we took a cruise to Bahamas on Norwegian Getaway. My granddaughter was very excited, happy, got a wonderful time especially she was happy with Garden Cafe where she could pick up any food and ice cream any time she was craving for it. She liked ...

6-10 Cruises • Age 50s

We chose this cruise based upon the week we were traveling and the NY location These are a list of things you should be made aware of: ~ As we boarded the ship we witnessed an entire crate holding luggage fall into The Hudson River. The fork lift operator did not secure the cart before lowering it. We believe this was the cause of us being a few hours late to depart and cannot even imagine ...

I travel often and have cruised numerous times! This past week we cruised NCL Getaway! and I counted the hours until we returned. The ship and staff are completely unorganized!! You do not get the sense that anybody has a true understanding of what is going on. - The buffet breakfast HORRIBLE like a mob of people eating for the first time! Yes they offer sit down breakfast but they end by ...
