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. ...

Not a Greek Isle Cruise!

We chose this cruise because it was scheduled to go to Mykonos and Santorini and had no at sea days. This " Greek Isle" cruise did not go to either of these islands due to mechanical problems with ship - which we ...

Overall Disappointing, with some Excellent areas

We arrived at the day of embarkation to find that the itinerary had changed. Apparently, this had been known at least a day before. We were to miss 3 (Kotor, Santorini, and Mykonos) of our 6 ports and they added ...

NCL doesn’t disappoint!

The NCL experience is why we keep coming back. The Greek Isles Cruise out of Venice did not disappoint. Although we had to skip the Montenegro port (due to the changes in Venice port), the remainder of the ports ...

Awesome itinerary, typically good cruise service

Chose this cruise because of the killer itinerary - Dubrovnik, Montenegro, four Greek Isles, plus no days as sea. (We have cruised many times, so we pick cruises for the ports; at-sea days are boring for us.) ...

Food and service at the Le Bistro was very poor. So much so that we complained and were offered a free return visit, but we chose to not even waste an evening trying again. On the other hand, Cagney's was excellent ...
