Extremely Disappointed

|

NCL ruined my honeymoon

When we arrived on board it was complete chaos, I was shocked. There was a lineup wrapping around the main level of the ship interfering with the passages to the gangway, due to all the number of complaints. ...

We are Platinum members on NCL and have cruised on many of their ships. The Star is by far the worst ship I have ever been on. We normally sail in the Haven but this ship does not have a Haven so we booked an Owners ...

WORST Cruise Experience Ever!

We have never sailed on the Norwegian Line before. We stayed in a mini-suite #11160 sailing from the port of Venice on July 1, 2018. As for the positives. The ship itself was fine as far as the decor and ...

Don’t accept a cabin on deck 4

Having cruised with NCL before, we trusted that we would be allocated nice cabins so were disgusted when we arrived in our 4th deck rooms. Realizing that we were in the bowels of the ship, with the engine room just ...

Bad Food, Poop in the Pool and Missed Port!

We've always wanted to visit the Greek Isles and Croatia, so when this cruise came up, we splurged. We thought NCL would be a little higher class and we'd get all we hoped for. We got two penthouse suites, one for ...

A Passenger Ship On A Budget, Not A Cruise Ship

We have cruised 31 times, the last one on NCL Getaway. It was wonderful. That is why we chose NCL this time. The issue is that NCL has been sold (in 2016) to 2 companies and NCL retained only 16%. They are ...
