Changed Itinerary

|

We chose a cruise to Cozumel/Key West and shortly after booking the itinerary was changed. We ended up going to Key west/Nassau/Coco Cay. We did not want to go to Nassau as we had been there so many times before. ...

Will not sail with them again

Just got back from a 5 day cruise. I have to say I will never go with this cruise line again. The food was absolutely horrible and service was beyond bad. We had a "penthouse" if you want to call it this that was ...

On March 6, 2019, my husband, Bill and I cruised on the NCL Pearl out of Tampa, FL. Joining us on the cruise was my brother-in-law and his new wife. This was to have been a time for the four of us to relax and to ...

Poor Customer Service

This was my first cruise. When it was booked I never would have booked it if I would have been informed that there was a private charter going on this cruise. The people in the charter were rude, obnoxious, and used ...

Quick getaway

We were looking for a relaxing getaway but couldn’t take a whole week off work so this was a good compromise. The check in was great. The agent was friendly and efficient. We bought the beer and wine package. I ...

Short But Sweet!

This was a quick getaway for my husband & I. Having sailed on much larger ships before, we were slightly skeptical about this cruise. But then I read some really great reviews, & decided why not. It turned out to ...

Shared the ship with a charter group.

Disappointed that we didn’t receive any of our Platinum latitudes benefits except priority embarkation and dis embarkation. Would have been nice to get water bottles. The wine is unnecessary. Difficult to get ...

Great Time on the NCL Pearl

This was our 7th cruise (DIsney, Celebrity, Holland, Royal Caribbean), but our first time with NCL. We are a married couple in our late 50s. We enjoyed the more casual, laid - back, freestyle experience. The ...

The Pearl delivers again

This was our third cruise on The Pearl and again the ship and crew hit a home run. Even though this particular cruise was a half charter we didn't run into that group very often. The exception was in the hot tubs ...

Didn't expect the Trailer Park Boys, but still great value

I spent 4 days on the Norwegian Pearl with a group of 11 other college students. We chose this cruise for its price, and because it would allow those in our group who were under 21 to cruise without their parents ...

Wonderful Cruise With Old Friends From Buffalo On Their First Cruise

We chose this cruise because of the convenience of leaving from Tampa (30 minutes from home) and the variety of ports on just a 7 day cruise. To make it even better, we were joined by 2 friends who were EXCITED ...

The cruise was fun from the moment we embarked until we reluctantly walked off the ship. -- We got the $49 Faster To The Fun (FTTF) so embarkation was a breeze and our room was ready. Best $50 ever spent. We went ...

Cabins were small and old in spite of Carnival swearing up and down that the Legend had been completely renovated in 2014. UNTRUE! The food was pathetic - no flavor, soaked in butter, unhealthy menu and cold. Both ...
