India to Dubai Experience on NCL

We chose this cruise only for the ports of calls. We have had less than stellar experience with NCL in the past but thought we would try them again. Only to confirm our thoughts of NCL not the choice of cruise lines ...

NCL sails a broken ship until it finally died

We planned this cruise for over a year. We saved so we could afford it and enjoy seeing the Far East side of the World and we booked back to back cruises to continue on the ship for the Australia/New Zealand ...

STRANDED ON THE SOUTH CHINA SEA

We flew all the way from New York for this cruise, which was supposed to take us from Singapore to Hong Kong, via numerous stops in Thailand and Vietnam. Instead, the ship lost an azipod as we were pulling out of ...

Have cruised NCL several times before with few problems. Wanted to see Australia and New Zealand. The ship lost one of its two engines in early December. NCL never informed us of this. I found out from on line ...

Slow Boat From China - NCL Star - HK to Sydney - 1/16/17

We chose this cruise for the new and exciting ports of call on the original itinerary. However, in Dec 2016, the NCL Star had one engine problem forcing them to drop Ho Chi Min City and Bangkok from the itinerary. ...

Disappointing Golden Anniversary Cruise

We joined the ship in Hong Kong having selected this cruise as a special holiday to celebrate our golden wedding anniversary. We had already been advised that two ports of call were cancelled because of an Azipod ...

Pluses and Minuses

We had experienced one cruise previously, on the Jewel, so that is all I can compare to. Despite several itinerary changes due to a failed azipod drive, more days at sea, no Thai stop and no website excursions, ...

NCL Lies and Miscommunication

We have cruised aboard the NCL Star before and this cruise had the usual friendly yet often terrible service. Even in the specialty restaurants NCL expected one server to serve our party of ten along with another ...

Cruise ruined despite best efforts of crew.

We chose this cruise based solely on itinerary. We have a dozen cruises on NCL which we prefer because of its informality and its short, port heavy itineraries. And the food quality, presentation and choices have ...
