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

As this was our first cruise, I did some research and had some concern; hidden charges, draconian rules that some lines impose, and being swamped with thousands of people on the ship and ashore None of these turned out to be a problem on ... Read more

We chose the Norweigan Getaway because it was going to the Baltic Capitals. We are a 65 year old couple and we walked a LOT but loved every minute. The cities were beautiful and the tours were great. We used an outside tour company than ... Read more

We wanted to experience NCL because of the ship not the itinerary. We enjoyed the whole experience. My granddaughter got me up to sing karaoke with her. I don't know what I sang, just followed the words on the screen. The shows were ... Read more

Needed to use up timeshare points and needed to use NCL. The embarkation process was smooth. The dining options were excellent. The itinerary was good but be aware that some towns are very small with little internet options. Also you might ... Read more

Love Alaska cruising. Convenient departure from Vancouver. Bright clean ship (although some threadbare carpet) with friendly, happy staff. Food was as good as on any of the 20 ships be have sailed, but the entertainment was abysmal. No ... Read more

We chose this ship because of previous Norwegian cruise line experience and that it was leaving out of Seattle. However, we felt the Jewel fell short in the dining experience. The food at the Buffet and the dessert area were disappointing. ... Read more
