Good Cruise on a Petty NCL Cruise Line
"Hi everyone, I decided to start with all the positives of the cruise, before going on with the fact that this was going to be my last cruise with NCL. Embarkation was a breeze. Maybe 30 minutes from arriving..."Read More

Great staff working a ship with a poor layout and audio problems

Staff was great...hands down. All of our interactions were wonderful and the other passengers had great stories to tell. The food was decent to good and we only ate in the main dining room and the buffet. I personally was caught off guard because the main dining room was actually enforcing the dress code. I've been on about 15 cruises and was pleasantly surprised by this, even though it affected ...

In general, we had a great time but the staff put a damper on our experience. The ship was nice, our room was clean. We did Excursions at all three stops and had a great time at all the stops. Now the Staff. Our steward barely talks to us and never ask if we need anything or how was the room. Most of our dining experience was poor except at the Japanese restaurant. The waiters and waitress seem ...

The itinerary was nice. The ship layout was very nice. The services... well.... here's my cruise... My flight down to FL was cancelled due to weather. yea, stuff happens. No problem, I purchased NCL travel insurance that included travel interruption protection. Or so I thought. Since I didn't purchase my flight through NCL, as far as their insurance is concerned (or as far as that agent ...

We chose this cruise because we thought that it would be a nice relaxing cruise on a smaller ship. My wife and I have been on over twenty cruises, and are platinum members on NCL. We have previously sailed on NCL Epic, Escape, Bliss, and Getaway. We have also sailed on Princess, Royal Caribbean, Holland America, Carnival and Celebrity. I get so much information from all the people on Cruise ...

*Embarkation* We sailed from Miami, but first we got to sit on the floor at the cruise terminal for 2 hours. We knew there was a bit of a delay, so we made sure not to get there too early. Why aren't there enough seats for everyone? There was nowhere to stand b/c you were constantly in someone's way, but there was also nowhere to sit. Once we got onboard, a little after 2:30pm, we rushed to the ...

We chose this cruise for the itinerary. It was an 11 day cruise going to Jamaica, Aruba, Curaçao, St Maarten and St Thomas. The ports are great except for Ocho Rios, Jamaica. Nothing to see there if you don’t buy an excursion. Embarkation was a nightmare! Waited over 2 hours to board. Was informed before the cruise that the ship was coming in from Europe and would be a longer wait to board ...

Embarkation went fairly smooth. Our cabin and cabin attendant were very nice for an obstructed Oceanview cabin. The ship was small and comfortable. Entertainment on the ship was okay nothing really spectacular except for one singer rest of it was average. I have nothing to good to say about the main dining room except the desserts were good. Our disembarkation went very smoothly got off ...

First time on Norwegian. We were not impressed with the food. Although the crew were very friendly- we had to walk into the hall to request towels or face clothes as we were about to shower. The entertainment we felt was above average with a variety of shows, magician, contortionist, Russian circus experts and the dancers. The cruise activities were plentiful and well organized. We enjoyed ...

Confused Boarding and Bad Food

This cruise was a Thanksgiving outing with my wife, sister and brother-in-law. The itinerary was great, with ports of call at Aruba and Curacao, two of my favorite Caribbean islands. But the vacation was marred by the most confused boarding I have ever seen in my 23 cruises and by mediocre food. The last night's dinner was particularly bad, with all of us complaining about our meals in the dining ...

Loved NCL cruising. The crew and staff on board have always been friendly and attentive. Not this time. None were rude, but few spoke. Service overall in the the restaurants was s-l-o-w. And heaven help you if you were in a group. Expect to spend 2-3 hours for dinner. If we wanted to to see the early show, we had to eat at the Garden Cafe to insure getting done in time to get to the theater. Some ...
