Never again

We choose this cruise because of Itinerary and value. The food was very bad and specialty restaurants were no better then main dining room. Tendering from the ship was a nightmare we were bearded like cattle. The timing at port of Miami was nothing but a convenience for NCL most passengers had no time to enjoy Miami because of the lack of organization. Disembarking in New Orleans was again poorly ...

Very crowded, lack of attention to basic management

We selected this cruise because I was attending a watercolor workshop. I enjoyed the course thoroughly. However, the location the ship provided was in a dark club painted black with limited lighting, their staff assisted us to have tables under the best lighting fixtures. The ship is very large and lacks good and quiet areas around the ship to just read and relax. In fact, at the last refit a ...

First NCL cruise; First time TA cruise

My husband and I are seasoned travelers but have only taken three cruises all with competitors (Carnival, Princess and Cunard) prior to booking this cruise. We were attracted to this cruise because of our desire to experience a transatlantic cruise, the specific itinerary and the fact that it debarked in New Orleans. Their “free style” sales pitch also seemed to resonate with our travel ...

Going to Normandy and visiting the cemetery was awe inspiring.

We chose this cruise to visit places we had never been. We spent extra time in Copenhagen and enjoyed our visit there. The ship was very nice, clean and well maintained and all of the crew were gracious and helpful. The restaurants on the ship were good but the food in the buffet was so good that we chose to eat in the buffet most of the time. The excursions are not worth the money or ...

Not our best cruise

We chose this cruise because we were excited to go to Europe and see London, Paris, Stonehenge, Ireland, etc. Embarkation and Disembarkation were very smooth as had been our previous cruise with Norwegian. We had sailed on the Breakaway earlier and chose this ship since it was the sister ship and we knew the layout. We had a family midship oceanview cabin. The room was nice. We always ate at ...

10+ Cruises • Age 70s

Chose this cruise because of its itinerary and that the "at sea" portion would be no more than 4 days at a time. Would not accept on-line reservations for complimentary dining rooms. A Maitre'D and Restaurant Hostess were wonderful in helping us with that problem. The tendering process for Great Stirrup Cay was a mess mainly as a result of the Cruise Next Manager who was tasked with informing ...

NCL DOESN'T CARE ABOUT ITS PASSENGERS

Review for Norwegian Getaway to Transatlantic

10+ Cruises • Age 70s

It was obvious that NCL management cares only about how much money they can make. For example, the ship stopped in Miami for only a few hours and took on fuel and provisions there. Every passenger had to go through Customs and Immigration and the line took a minimum of three hours to get off and back on. Then they blamed Customs for the delay when the stop was obviously only to benefit the ...

Would not recommend

2-5 Cruises • Age 80s

19 day re-positioning cruise Copenhagen to New Orleans. Staff, cabin stewards, bar staff all excellent and helpful. Management was terrible from top to bottom. Free Style was a joke as there were lines everywhere and you had to make reservations. Every docking ended with long lines. Unecessary stop in Miami was short and entailed a 4 hour wait in the terminal. Every question to Guest Services ...

Never again - following the Danforth family review

6-10 Cruises • Age 60s

First, read the Danforth family review. No need for me to repeat everything there. It is ALL correct - even a bit mild. Overall, organization was lacking. Processes were disorganized; we heard the word "cluster" quite a few times. The biggest surprise (of many) was the churlish attitude of most of the staff. Few smiles, uncaring (even after pouring coffee on my wife's lap!), angry that ...

Too large

6-10 Cruises • Age 70s

We went with several couples. This ship is too large to be organized. I sensed some of the crew was not trained in their jobs. Have only been on one other NCL cruise. This cruise was the worst of the 10 cruises we have been on. Would not recommend a large ship. Staff was generally good although the Margaritaville restaurant experience was as bad as any restaurant experience ever. Horrible ...
