Great itinerary, amazing crew

As a first time on a transatlantic, we chose NCL and Pearl based on the itinerary and were not disappointed. The food was good, we did not use the speciality restaurants as we found the MDR o’Sheehans, and buffet met our expectations. We were disappointed in the small number of production shows but found enough on the ship to be entertained. The crew are exceptional, a special thank you to ...

This was a birthday gift from me to me with Love. October 26th I was in beautiful Bermuda! I chose this cruise because the price was right, the itinerary Was great. I wanted to see as many places as possible My criticism is about the food. I had an expectation of wonderful fresh ingredients from Italy being served since that is where we were leaving from. The food tasted frozen, stale, ...

Great ports, terrible food

Chose this Oct 14-30 transatlantic cruise because of all the great ports. The itinerary and $6,000 price did not make up for the terrible food regardless of where you ate, small, poorly cleaned cabins, insufficient and poor gym equipment, disorganized disembarkation, ridiculous unnecessary extra charges, and practically non-existent quality entertainment. Other than 2 decent meals and 2 nights of ...

We were 4 people in 3 balcony cabins on Deck 10. The cruise was chosen principally for the fantastic ports, other than Port Canaveral, which was added so they could load on all of the equipment for the Kiss cruise charter immediately following ours. By doing so they had to adjust our times in Bermuda making it very difficult to actually tour the island. Embarkation was very fast and ...

This cruise was a wonderful way to see European cities, Azores and Bermuda. Also it was fun to not have to fly back from Europe to the U.S. The ship is older but in great shape and the crew and all staff seemed to be very experienced and friendly. The cruise line excursions were well done and had a nice range of prices. Freestyle dinning worked out well. The ship also had a crepe making ...

Wanted to do a Transatlantic and the ports of call were great! The staff was friendly enough but the ship was a complete let down! Dirty smelly cabin and everywhere I sat the seats were dirty and very uncomfortable! Food was just ok never really hot. Bedspread was torn and had seen better days! Throw pillows in our cabin smelled and were stained as well as the throw they put at the bottom of the ...

The Cruise itinerary was fantastic. We stopped at ports in Italy, France, Spain, Portugal, and Bermuda. Our visits to all were very good. San Miguel island in the Azores especially was terrific. We also like that NCL allows travelers to bring wine on board with a $15 per bottle corkage fee. This was a big factor for us because the allegedly free liquor package in our program was not free. ...

What a total disaster of a ship. I can’t say one good thing about it. The staff was uninformed, food was horrible, excursions horrible, entertainment horrible. There’s just not one good thing I can say. NCL owes everyone on that ship a refund. They totally failed on everything including how the virus epidemic was handled. Up until this cruise I had become a NCL fan. Enjoyed my last 3 ...

I was told by many people Norwegian was an upscale cruise line. DON’T BELIEVE IT. No one knows what is going on and they seem not to care. The employees don’t go out of their way an inch. The famous work Is “no”. There are a few crew members that actually will get you information but they are the minority. Not many crew members smile and if you have a question or ask “why” for any reason ...
