Great Ship Terrific Captain but Weak Staff

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 ...

Rome to Miami

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 ...

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 ...

A Cruise with Lots of Firsts!

I chose this cruise because it left from New York, a city I love & was going east, one of my firsts, having done 2 TAs from Europe. Another first was the roll call which was quite active but toxic sometimes. ...

Horrible - Don’t book NCL!

I usually do not write reviews but I had to in this case. This trip was just under $7000.00 dollars, not an inexpensive trip! Yet we booked this trip because in our minds this was a trip of a lifetime! As a seasoned ...

Norwegian Pearl was a disaster. Epidemic virus hits the cruise

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 ...

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 ...
