We chose this cruise because neither of us had been to Bermuda and it was a good deal within driving distance from home... The good: No lines for anything, 3 minutes for check-in! I suspect this ship was less than half full because, ... Read more

This cruise was a great experience. The ship was very clean, service was outstanding - especially the bar staff and cabin stewards. Offers a wide variety of food options and the beverage package is a plus. Getting on and off the ship ... Read more

We have only travelled with Celebrity before so were quite anxious about the standards we might find. Overall, the cleanliness was impeccable, but the ship could do with a bit of a makeover as it looks a teeny bit date in some parts, in ... Read more

Being a Latitudes Rewards member embarkation was rather easy. My son and his family were in the Haven and tried to have us (myself and his mother in law) board with them because they did not want to leave us alone. We are old enough to ... Read more

We have cruised with other cruise lines and wanted to experience NCL. The ship is huge but has organization issues. The main pool is a disaster. It is too small for a ship of this size. Lack of space for chairs around pool is ... Read more

My 85-year-old mother-in-law is finally getting to her bucket list and took my husband and me on this cruise. Her money. She is not wealthy. She has never led an extravagent life-style, so this was a huge deal for her. I helped make the ... Read more

Spent two days in Venice prior to embarkation, then 7 days on Norwegian Star. Speedy check in and boarding, luggage delivery to cabin was a bit slow. The overall impression of the ship was positive, main dining room food was excellent ... Read more

I will start with the good, which isn't a whole lot. Good cabin steward and the ships show band was excellent. Now for the bad! Was greeted by a plumbing problem being worked on a couple of doors down from our cabin when we got ... Read more

My wife and I are Platinum Latitudes members. Most of our cruises have been with NCL. First time on the Gem, a very clean and well run ship. Boarding and disembark from NYC needs some attention. We enjoyed 5 nights in the specialty ... Read more

Chose this cruise for the 2 day stop in Havana. Must have been a beautiful place at one time. 40% of structures unsalvageable , 2 collapse each day . 60+ years of communism has taken its toll on a onetime gem. Average wage $18-25 per ... Read more

First we got a great deal. But also we really enjoy Norwegian. Enjoy the "freestyle" environment. Part of that is eating on your own schedule, sitting where you want to. And no formal night; unless you want to. Staff were ... Read more

This was our first cruise with Norwegian Cruise lines, and it was also the last. We have done several cruises with Celebrity and Royal Caribbean. This cruise line does not measure up for us. We paid $4,000 to upgrade from an inside ... Read more

This was my 4th NCL cruise but first time on the Epic and first time not sailing to/from the continental US. Unfortunately the ship and staff did not live up to the hype. My mother and I were on a Western Mediterranean cruise from Rome in ... Read more

Having cruised in the Med aboard Spirit a year ago we were sure we were on to a winner. We were on two back to back cruises departing June 8 and 18, but as far as we were concerned it was all one long cruise, sure to serve up a great deal ... Read more
