NCL staff and management have no clue how to travel with 4,000 passengers. We are still trying to decide if the ports just are not ready for the mega ships - or if NCL just doesn't care whether they get repeat ...

We are Platinum Plus (30+ cruises) and consider ourselves "loyalists." Unfortunately, our experience on the Bliss in September pushed us to look elsewhere. We'd also had a not so great experience on the Bliss in ...

Great except for NCL corporate

We have taken several Pacific Coastal cruises. We really like the itinerary since we live in the LA area. The embarkation is the worst I have ever seen. We spent several hours in the Canada Place terminal. We ...

This itinerary was a mess

We are frequent cruisers. We got together with two other couples on this cruise - just to enjoy a new ship. We had all been to all the ports so we figured we would just enjoy each other's company. When we booked the ...

Not even the happiest place on earth!

My husband purchased this cruise for me as a holiday gift - we love cruising, and have cruised several times with NCL. The fact that Jersey Boys (one of my favorite musicals) was on-board was the proverbial icing on ...

The Good, the Bad and the Ugly NCL drops the ball. A long review

We booked this cruise only 30 days before sailing. Reading the reviews, many people had booked this 6 day cruise well over a year ago. This was billed as a 6 day cruise, and everyone paid tips for a 6 day cruise. ...

The embarkation was quick, partly because we were there early. Too bad it rained all day in Vancouver, so we were not able to enjoy Vancouver before we sail out in the middle of the night. We had a balcony on ...

Being big fans of NCL's Breakaway and its Haven, we were really excited to try the Bliss. The short-ish (5 night) southbound West Coast itinerary was intriguing, too; as experienced cruisers, we've done the ...
