Should be called the Norwegian "Lineup"
"This ship is setup totally wrong and the way in which Norwegian has utilized the small areas is lacking in customer comfort- I have never had to work harder at everything including the buffet.) Norwegian has more of this class of ship on order and I will never book any of them- they have missed the mark totally with their goal of controlling everything you do...."Read More

A great, but not perfect cruise

We booked this cruise because the itinerary was amazing and we thought it would be fun to try out a new ship. As for the ship, we found it perfectly satisfactory, beautifully decorated, and not as bad to navigate as other reviewers have indicated. Perhaps it is because we had three weeks to make the Viva home but we never had trouble finding our destinations using the menus by the elevators and ...

Norweigan Viva Transatlantic from San Jan to Lisbon April 7th This was our first Transatlantic voyage. My husband Rick 62 and I 54 have 21 prior cruises and this is our second NCL. Our crazy goal was to relax with 14 ports and a ship that offered almost everything. While still recovering from Jet lag, wanted to share our thoughts/experiences from a 19-night Viva sail! This was our second ...

Just got back from the transatlantic on board the brand new VIVA. The ship is beautiful. Cabins: The rooms are much bigger than other ships. Plenty of outlets and a real modern feel. The bathrooms are large with great room in the shower. Food: The food options are virtually unlimited. On an 11 day trip it was hard to eat at the same venue. We really enjoyed the Indulge food hall, ...

Love doing transatlantic cruises and have cruised with RCL, Disney, Norwegian and Princess transatlantics- this was by far the worst cruise in my 20+ yrs of cruising. This ship is setup totally wrong and the way in which Norwegian has utilized the small areas is lacking in customer comfort- I have never had to work harder at everything including the buffet. The seat hunt in the buffet is ...

Navigating the Experience on NCL's Viva: A Comprehensive Review

Sailing on NCL's Viva in November, we embarked on a journey with expectations of a seamless blend of novelty and perfection. However, our experience unveiled a mix of highs and lows. 1. Expectations vs. Reality: The Haven's loungers stained with airborne exhaust soot, leaving black marks on both furniture and clothing, was an unprecedented and unsatisfactory experience. The staff's ...

We are on the Viva after spending 2 weeks on Virgin Voyages. I have the impression that both ships are trying the same thing. However where Virgin dares to be different Viva goes almost there and the bottles out Take the Galley on VV it's great, really nice food made fresh to order. Viva has the same concept but limits the space & choice because it has installed a traditional too small ...

We were on the Epic at O’Sheehan’s a few years ago watching the new ships presentation on the big screen in the atrium and were intrigued by the new Prima class ships coming. It was billed as a smaller class with a premium feel and we looked forward to their launch. While planning this year’s transatlantic crossing I was delighted to see that the Prima and Viva were competitively priced with other ...

My husband and I love NCL and have never been disappointed until now. We chose the NCL Viva because we love cruising in new ships on their first transatlantic crossing. The NCL Viva is visually stunning. The comedians onboard were fantastic. The band in Syd Norman’s Pour House was wonderful. However… The 6-7-8 common areas are no longer the hub of the ship and are too small. On ...
