Freestyle cruising does not work for me.

First Time Cruiser • Age 60s

This is a nice ship, with comfortable amenities. The staterooms are ample. Food quality is good, but not excellent. They do have specialty restaurants, but these are had at substantial cost. The shows were good. What I don't care for with this cruise is the Freestyle type cruising, which means no organization as to when you eat or who serves you throughout the ship. I prefer more traditional ...

I think its time to take this Ship out of the cruise business, or use it for some other venue, not seven day cruises! It lacks in to many areas, food, entertainment, recreation. First, the food, the raffles buffet, is nothing more than a place to fill your belly, very mediocre, if not just bad, the breakfast menu was hard to swallow after a couple of days, definitely needs more variety. The ...

Awful experience

Save your money..... Experienced the following on the cruise: 1. On the 1st evening we returned to our room after dinner to find a note stating that contraband had been found in our luggage and we would have to go to theater to meet with security and retrieve our luggage. Immediately I know that it is for the wine that I had brought with me. I had full intentions on paying the corkage fee.... ...

2-5 Cruises • Age 60s

My husband won this cruise and all we had to do was to pay port charges and tax, etc. He was a first time cruiser and I had cruised four times previously. We only had a few choices and elected to leave from New Orleans so that we could experience the city. I was a little hesitating due to the security issues in Mexico and reading some of the reviews. I was pleasantly surprised as the ship and crew ...

1st NCL cruise will be our last

My husband and daughter just returned from our first NCL cruise to Costa Maya, Roatan, Belize, and Cozumel. We have cruised before with Carnival and absolutely loved everything about it. This time, this particular trip was cheaper with Norweigan than with Carnival so we decided to go with Norweigan. What a huge mistake that was. Let me first start out by saying that we did have fun at most of our ...

6-10 Cruises • Age 70s

Embarkation: Boston's new terminal is nice—the problems are before you get into the terminal—traffic flow was very bad with three cruise ships docked—there are no signs to show you where to drop luggage and find a porter---a real issue that needs to be addressed. Once inside everything went well and we were having lunch in Cagney's by noon. We arrived in Boston two days before ...

Getting on and off the ship was smooth, the weather was great, no bad storms. Food is fair. Cabin OK needs a good cleaning and rust in bathroom.TV bad, but being changed out to flat screens this week. Did not like the comps in the casino, NONE. Bought in $1000.00 a day on the crap table but not even a drink was comped. I don't like the prepaid tip, the staff doesn't seem to go the extra ...

First Time Cruiser • Age 70s

Embarkation Day: We flew to NOLA the day of the cruise. Our flight arrived by 12:30. We had prearranged for Airport Shuttle New Orleans to pick us up, and we were transported to the pier quickly and efficiently. Since we had a suite, we had a rapid check-in and our wait to board was nonexistent. In the VIP Lounge, we met Bruce Van Der Boon, our Concierge. He introduced us to our butler, Naveen and ...

Norweigan Spirit Needs a Pep Rally

First Time Cruiser • Age 50s

Let me first say the cruise was a very nice time, (they always are), however I must say Norweigan Cruise Line has finally disappointed me. I have been on many cruises and the last 4 have been on NCL because I love the freestyle cruising. It is beginning to feel more like a carnival herd of cattle mentality instead of a cruise line where the employees actually care about their jobs. I am going to ...

A Great Time, but not Perfect

First Time Cruiser • Age 70s

One day on the elevator, someone got on and said, "if you're not having a good time, you have no one to blame but yourself." He was absolutely right. A perfect cruise? No, and there were some glitches and minor complaints, but we had a great time. This was our 7th cruise, but our first on NCL. Previously we've been on Holland America and Cunard. We booked with a Travel Agent as part of a larger ...
