Not for non-smokers

NCL was our go-to cruise line for several years. My son wanted to try a larger ship so we took an Eastern Caribbean cruise on Breakaway. Been there, done that. Too many people for the size of the amenities. Tiny ...

An Average Experience

My father in law booked a cruise for 6 to make it a family vacation. We had a balcony, free at sea package, etc. It was OK. The food was good to average, bars were always full and usually had to wait. Seemed ...

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 ...

I have sailed on Norwegian four or five times, so I had a pretty good idea what to expect this time and, indeed, this cruise conformed to my expectations. Basically, this is a medium giant ship with lots and lots ...

We chose this cruise specifically for the ship, Harmony of the Seas. We made the mistake of choosing a cabin that was on the 14th deck, in the very back, just 4 cabins from the very aft end. The closest elevator ...
