Norwegian Rome (Civitavecchia) Cruise Reviews

US Coast Guard cutter making darkened ship/nighttime transit through canal.  Wonder why?
Evening conclusion of entire canal transit on Panama City/Pacific side.
Panama Canal transit.  New canal uses tugs vs tracked mules to keep vessels centered in the lock.
Beautiful ship.

Beautiful places with, at times, a struggling ship

We consider ourselves as easily pleased and fair - so here goes The boarding at Civitavecchia (Rome) was seamless at our allocated time. We had all our paper work ready and check-in complete, with COVID test etc, which I think helped as there were plenty of folk sitting around waiting. If you do decide to get a test there, yes, as advertised, it will cost $65. There were places apparently in ...

It's probably going to be difficult to describe the full extend of our disappointment with this cruise, but I'll give it my best try, with as much detail as possible so that you can appreciate why we were so disappointed. Embarkation Got on after spending an endless time waiting for an antigen test (which later showed up on the invoice as a $65 pp charge, when it doesn't even cost half ...

I have never been on a trans-Atlantic cruise before or on NCL. NCL overall 5 stars for the ship’s crew. They were always polite and helpful. The food was great and the entertainment good. The specialized dining was very good especially enjoyed LeBistro and LaCucina. Portugal shoreline is amazing—definitely worth getting up to watch as ship ports. Malaga, Spain was a favorite for us very pretty ...

We did a 17 day cruise with a pre cruise land tour. We were on the Getaway in December from 5-22, 2021 in a mid ship balcony out of Italy. We chose this cruise to replace our canceled cruise to Tahiti from the beginning of Covid. We were excited about Europe. We stayed two days in Rome prior to the cruise and loved Vatican City. The testing prior to boarding at the terminal was confusing. They ...

I waited to write this trying to be fair and take the Covid protocols into account but even without Covid this ship is like a mish/mash of other ships. Bits of this and that...you soon start feeling you've been on the ship before. Deck, two tiny pools and massive slides etc. for kids. Naturally Cagney's, La Bistro, La Cuchina, were at their best as always. O'Sheehans was the only place with ...

Our Princess TA from Rome was cancelled. The price and itinerary worked for us so we booked our first NCL cruise. We have been on 38 cruises, mostly Princess tho we have tried Cunard, Disney, MSC, Carnival Bottom line? I would never take this ship if fully booked. Even at 40% capacity there were some long lines. I will give NCL a try again—and bought two Future cruise certificates. Also, ...

After months of being unable to cruise due to the moratorium, I was eager to resume sailing. I had booked one NCL cruise but that was canceled. I then booked NCL Epic`s sailing from Rome on 20 Nov 2022. There were several alterations to the cruise identified shortly before I boarded the ship (but subsequent to the cut-off date for canceling with no financial penalty). First, the production of ...

Worst cruise & cruise company ever… Perfect storm of incompetence, misinformation and outright false information. • Knocked out ½ the itinerary of each 10-day cruise without reasonable compensation or chance to cancel. • Horrid customer relations for problems due to tendering, itinerary changes, cabin assignment, covid testing • Misleading to false descriptions of ...

We booked this cruise around late August, having seen a good deal on the NCL website which included the premium beverage package, 250 minutes of wifi and the prepaid service charges. As per the title, this is my first cruise in a decade (last being on Independence of the Seas on Royal Caribbean), and my first ever with Norwegian. The cruise began in Rome, so we grabbed the earliest flight from ...
