Haven Spa Suite and Norwegian ruined my vacation
"This is long review but I am trying to be as honest as possible. I thought about this for months and felt I needed to let others hear about the way I was treated by the cruise line. Horrible for the most part...."Read More

Not Vegan Friendly, Terrible Service

First Time Cruiser

Age 50s

This was my second cruise experience. My review of this ship will be in comparison with our prior cruise with Royal Caribbean. First, the ship was overrun with children. Children at bars, shows, pools, just about everywhere. The adult pool was supposed to be kid free until about 5 pm, and the staff did a good job enforcing it. However, some of the hot tubs around the pool were family friendly ...

This was my first cruise with Norweigan, and I am never going back. Starting with embarkation, the process was painful and confusing. It took several hours longer than expected and when we got on, every part of the ship was already packed with people. During the safety briefing, we were screamed at to shut up and there was broken glass on the floor. There was also broken glass on my parents deck ...

OVERCROWDED! (7 days, including Halloween)

We selected this cruise without realizing it was going to be a Halloween cruise. Big mistake. We’ve been on the NCL Getaway before and loved it - great layout, lovely “waterfront” options.... a very nice, well-designed ship. Well, for this cruise, many groups (of all ages) happily used the “Free 3rd & 4th guests” promo to pack their cabins with 4 people - it was like a spring break cruise ...

I have been on 20 cruises not a novice. I was a big fan of NCL. My last 5 cruises were wit them. I must say there were no surprises, nothing out of the box and the cruise was boring I am no prude but I must sat The cruise staff over did the adult humor. passengers were spurred on by staff to the point their were videos of them having simulated sex. it became very ugly and vulgar. ...

Pros - LeBristo is excellent, ship sailed extremely smoothly thru the ocean, shows were excellent. Cons - Bands & Music were over the top loud. The White Hot Party (now called Neon Party) is for kids (facepaints, glow sticks, techno music, super loud, lots of chidren). Italian restaurant is extremely poor in every category. Pool area is terrible (super loud, sunning area in the pool, can't ...

NCL Getaway? Never Again

Never again. This cruise was only redeemed by some really great shore excursions. We were very excited to head to the eastern Caribbean on this trip. Sadly, the ship was a disappointment. A little about us. This is our third cruise. Our first two were with RC on Liberty and Freedom of the Seas, both also Eastern Caribbean ports. Unfortunately the Getaway did not compare favorably with the RC ...

We paid for a cruise expecting to have a fun week, what we found was that if you want to have good food you have to pay for it, most of the restaurant are specialties, the complimentary restaurants 3 of them had the same menu: taste, savor and tropicana, another was too small " the flamingo" with too little food to choose and the other two one is chinesse right in front of the casino with all ...

I have cruised many times on other lines and was hopeful my first experience on NCL would be a good one. The ship itself was beautiful but I think they have tried to cram way too much into the space. Sometimes less is more. I was extremely disappointed with the level of customer service we received from everyone with the exception of the teams in Cagney's and Moderno. There was never enough ...

This ship can't handle 4000+ guest - it's impossible! The adult pool is tiny and very deep. Bartenders are rude and cheat you on the alcoholic beverages. Most of the staff you run into don't look happy. Buffet food is very repetitive. If you want to eat at a specialty restaurant good luck -- reservations are very limited. Floors are super slippery. You will never find available lounge ...

Worst Cruise Ever; First Time on NCL, Not a Fan

Room too small, balcony is a joke. Food was not great either. The unlimited beverage and children cruising free is a bad mix. Parents get drunk and children run wild. Terrible mix worst time ever. I have cruised fourteen time with carnival cruise line and decided to upgrade but that was a bad mistake. Not a fan of the ship either decor was so bland. my luggage was torn and damaged. Online the ...
