Just So-So

This was first time on Norwegian, maybe 9th cruise all in all. We had a 7 day cruise stopping in Great Stirrup Cay, Jamaica, Grand Cayman, and Cozumel. Sadly, we skipped Great Stirrup Cay, which I found out happens ...

The Highs and Lows of the Sun

We decided on this cruise because of the great price offered by NCL. We had a mid ship balcony and took advantage of the 4 perk deal. I will review the items and places we visited and if not mentioned it's due to ...

Worst customer service all around!

This was our 4th cruise with Norwegian first on the Breakaway. I have never experienced a more reluctant crew to provide service. Many staff members were too busy talking/visiting with each other or cell phones. ...

Great cruise for the money

We went as an extended family, all adults trip. Both embarkation and disembarkation was quick and smooth. Our expectations were pretty low both due to some reviews we had read and experience with similar size ...

The room assignment was a bait and switch

The timing worked out for this cruise as we were planning to be in Orlando at this time and this cruise was leaving Port Canaveral. Also, we had never taken an NCL cruise so after over 20 cruises on five other lines ...

This was supposed to be the Cruise of a Lifetime...

The Ship: We got what we expected out of the cruise. There were some things though that stood out that we did not like. Number one, my husband is a recovering alcoholic (22 years) so he did not want to buy the ...

I traveled with Norwegian several times however, this was the first time with Breakaway. I was very pleased. This time I ordered an inside room as those tend to be quiet. I was decompressing from the holidays!! ...

1st Time Cruisers - Would definitely recommend.

This was our very first cruise - we flew out from Gatwick, UK for a 10 night western Caribbean cruise. The embarkation was excellent - we were on the ship by 11 am although we were told it would be by 1 pm. This ...

Crowded with odd layout

With over 4,000 passengers, you can imagine how cramped it is. There’s limited seating for shows and dining. You have to reserve a seat for the show using the app, tv, hallway touch screen or calling the box ...

Just average in many ways, and below average in others

We chose this cruise because of the ports and shore excursions available. The ship was clean and up to date. Boarding was easy, but disembarking was a strenuous, roundabout, convoluted hike, aft to forward through ...

Great cruise on a budget

I know that my title for the review seems bad but it’s a good thing! Look, there’s no beating around the bush. The Norwegian Sun is an older ship- it’s from 2001 so compared to these new mega ships with water ...

Did not get the R&R we were hoping for. 1 pool very crowded with young adults.

Disappointed. We sailed in the NCL Breakaway in the Caribbean the week before Christmas 2019, and were hoping to have a relaxing time, but couldn't during the day. The one pool is small and very crowded with young ...

I have cruised with NCL a handful of times, and have always been satisfied with the value for your money. This would be my first trip where I don’t feel that way. To be fair, the weather can never be predicted ...

I'm writing from the point of view of someone that has cruised with Disney a few times and loved it (but it was too expensive) and did quite a few Carnival cruises (cheap, but inconsistent quality). We had heard ...
