A beautiful ship, crew members were great!

Our trip started with a bang... we won an upgrade to The Haven! The suite was perfectly sized, bigger than our last regular spa suite, but not too big with wasted space. We had a lot of storage, and I loved the ...

Not Impressed At All

I've been on several cruises, Norwegian and Carnival - the staff on this ship was horrible. Our room steward and the dining room staff were the only friendly staff on the ship. There was rarely any staff available ...

**Warning, warning, warning - - Norwegian Cruise Line**

The embarkation and disembarkation went very smoothly at each point. However, when a new person enters the ship initially, there is no assistance as to what you should do or where you should go. There is no ...

First time on NCL, already going back

This cruise was my 5th, two on Royal, two on Carnival. Leaving out of Miami was great, definitely the type of city you want to spend an extra night or so. Embarkation was ok, but could have been faster. Booked ...

Grumpy service staff, depressed atmosphere

When I did my research, Norwegian Getaway seemed to meet our expectations: relaxed atmosphere, fun activities for kids. What a disappointment it turned out to be. Most of its service staff wore a sad face. They ...

Nice Ship but Too Crowded

We’ve been on other NCL cruises but this was the first on such a large ship. 4000 people made the ship feel crowded and understaffed. We had a balcony room and it felt small. The closet was next to the bed and ...
