NCL is cutting too many corners

My husband and I took a 28 day cruise in September-October 2018. We chose this to see the British Isles and Iceland...a few items on our bucket lists. We flew directly from Denver to Gatwick on Norwegian Air Shuttle. The flight was fine (exit row seats!), but they demolished my husbands' suitcase. They say they've made a direct payment to my bank for the suitcase and lost items, but it ...

Great Itinerary!

We choose our cruises based on itinerary and price. We have focused on seeing Europe the past few years and have always wanted to do a British Isles cruise but the cost was substantially more than the Mediterranean cruises. The opportunity to grab a “sail-away inside’ cabin at a bargain rate was all that was needed to convince us. As a DIY cruiser the idea of cruising an English-speaking area also ...

Excellent Itinerary, Very Nice Ship, The Positives Outweigh The Negatives

My group of 5 chose this cruise because of the itinerary - seeing many ports around the UK, and only two days at sea. Thoughts: Boarding: Very good, very fast. I thought Norwegian did a very good job of getting us onboard with minimum fuss and hassle. Room: 5526. We thought is was a very good outside cabin. Forward, Port, far enough from the elevators that we didn't get any ...

Overall the experience was positive. The main dining room was good but not great. The Garden Café (buffet) was also good but not great. The Garden Café was open for longer hours than on our last cruise on Royal Caribbean. The condition of the ship was good, some worn carpet in a few areas but very clean. The shore excursions was all good except for last one on the disembarkation day. We took ...

I chose this cruise for the wonderful itinerary as well as the “Jewel class” series which is my favorite. I also cruised on the NCL Pearl in Dec. 2017. I am a Platinum latitudes member and have been on over 10 NCL cruises. And even though I still feel that they are a great cruise line; I have been very disappointed in the decline in the service as well as the decrease in the number of ...

The Jade: OK but not Wow

We just completed a British Isle cruise on the Jade and were really looking forward to the newly renovated ship. However, though the décor colours were updated to be more classic and subdued there was really no other wow factor that we noticed having sailed on the Jade previously. Our cabin on the 11 deck was fine for an inside cabin, however the toilet was poorly placed in the bathroom and ...

I chose this cruise because it had the destinations I was looking for. The British Isles. I didn't care which cruise line it was, the destination was the purpose of the trip. We got on and off the ship very easily. Didn't like giving up our passports right off the bat, but they did return them as promised. We did not travel with children. Our cabin was a standard inside room. Clean and ...

Stick with the Ocean Pacific Dining Room and Speciality Restaurants

We chose this cruise to check off the British Isles from our bucket list and found it to be in our price range. Overall, the cruise was wonderful, the ports of call were perfect however there were a few downfalls on the part of NCL: 1- the main dining room (Alizar) had sub par service and the food was only 2-3 star. 2- The Specialty Restaurants were 5 star and well worth the price to add ...

Changes in NCL policies

There were a few changes in NCL policies on the ship that we were not aware of at the beginning of our trip. The policy on straws was a little bit of an issue. We could have brought our own had we known about the change. Also, the policy on taking food to your room or ordering at a restaurant and being able to take it back to your room. We were informed it was a health issue, but yet you could ...

Just returned from our first cruise on the Norwegian Jade. The staff were so welcoming, polite and friendly. The service the staff offered was exceptional in all areas, from house keeping, restaurants and bar staff. We expect less but got more . The entertainment was the finest we have watched from the Stardust theatre with an excellent magician, acrobats, singers and dancers, all put together ...
