I chose the cruise because of the itinerary, which was very good. The food was horrible. I mean, the specialty restaurants were good, but you should not have to pay more to get a decent meal. In O'Sheenans, they can't make a good hot dog, a hot dog, not joking. The bar staff was good, Emerson and Danno espeically, Also, KK was very nice. The ship was okay, simlar to others. I thought the ...

Small ship, terrible guest services

I chose this cruise because it knocked out many places in a short amount of time. We had never been to europe and were eager to use the help of a cruise to get us to various places. However, the ship was small, overcrowded, and the guest services team was terrible. The food was decent, the pool was terrible, salt water and freezing, hot tubs were closed one of the days for unknown reasons. The ...

We recently cruised from Venice to Rome via the med. The ship was clean which was great, we were also the only ship to visit Mykonos and Santorini, it was extremely windy and 3 others ships chose not to go there. Santorini is such a flying visit that’s it hardly worth it, also it was busy with just our ship, I’d hate to be there when there are others ships too. The biggest disappointment ...

We always wanted to do a cruise to Venice and the Greek Islands. Norwegian offered this cruise which suited us perfectly. The ship and crew were great. Great food lots of restaurants to choose from. Cabins 9076 was great with a great guy who cleaned up our room every day. Lots of bars to choose from. Also great entertainment in the Stardust Theatre. Shore excursions were great but found ...

I'm surprised there were so many poor reviews of this cruise-ship as my husband and I thought it was amazing! Perhaps b/c the cruise contains primarily older people (>50years) they are less impressed or adaptable? My husband and I are in our 30's, we stayed in a room with a port window on the bottom deck but still found this trip amazing. The ship was very clean including our staterooms.. The ...

We took the 11-day cruise in the Mediterranean to fantastic ports of call. We did excursions most days, which is the best way to do it as the ports can be busy with limited transportation for people without excursions booked. The customer service is over the top! The associates really cared about your experience and did everything to ensure it was a great one. The food and specialty dining ...

I booked this cruise because of the itinerary ( which was great). That being said I was very dissapoinedwithe the food and the entertainment I’ve been on many cruises and have never experienced such a poor choice of options in the dining room as well as the buffet. I only ate in the dining room 2 times for dinner and the buffet options did not suit my taste at all. The shows were ...

My husband and I have cruised on RCL and HAL many times, first time picking NCL which we did because of the itinerary! (We wanted to start in Venice !) This was our 3rd time cruising to the Mediterranean, first time on NCL. Went with friends who were first time cruisers to celebrate our 60th birthdays. I was a bit worried after reading the terrible reviews, and hearing about the ships mechanical ...

I liked the itinerary of this cruise and it did prove to be wonderful. However, our experience on board was less then stellar! Service was downright bad! Everyone already has their tips so why bother giving us a great experience. Nobody on this ship is putting in any effort. Restaurants in particular had horrible food and horrible service! I did not have a hot meal in 11 days. It came to the ...
