Won't be taking the Bliss again

Review for a Mexican Riviera Cruise on Norwegian Bliss

CruizerSandi
10+ Cruises • Age 70s

The Bliss had the itinerary we were interested in. Wasn't a good experience. At embarkation there was standing room only in the terminal, I get that. But the lady escorting Haven guests yelled (yes, yelled) at us every time she walked by to move out of the way. She said we couldn't stand in the side aisle. There was no where to go, the terminal was packed. The food in the main dining ...

Disappointed

Review for a Caribbean - Western Cruise on Norwegian Prima

Montov
2-5 Cruises • Age 30s

Booked a cruise with stops to Caribbean: Harvest Caye, Cozumel & Roatan. Liked the fact that this was a fairly new liner. I had bight expectations, but was disappointed. There is no luxury on Prima, it is indeed very minimalistic even down to the essentials store. I was hoping to find some t-shirts and goodies, and was left with zero options. They had a few shirts but sizing was for small ...

Mostly hits but some misses

Review for a Bahamas Cruise on Norwegian Gem

adidreh1234
6-10 Cruises • Age 40s

We sailed on the NCL Gem from 2/16-2/19. It was just hubby and I, we’re experienced cruisers with NCL and Royal Caribbean. For starters, I love the size of the Gem. I have been on the Getaway few years ago which at the time was one of the biggest, and since then only sailed on medium-sized ships. THE POSITIVES FIRST The Embarkation process - we embarked in Miami, and it was a breeze. ...

NCL let us down in Africa and Madagascar

Review for a Africa Cruise on Norwegian Dawn

RogersCruising
First Time Cruiser • Age 50s

We've used Norwegian for all our cruises and after this one we hit the Platinum level Latitudes. We've experienced some amazing things cruising with NCL, but this cruise has been awful. Only two redeeming things we've had in 12 days. The first was a dinner at their new Mexican restaurant Los Lobos Cantina. The food was excellent, the service was exceptional. We also always book the Mandara Spa ...

Organised chaos

Review for a Africa Cruise on Norwegian Dawn

Norwegian Dawn review
6-10 Cruises • Age 60s

Chose this cruise because of the itinerary ie. South Africa and Namibia. From day 1 the writing was on the wall. I will start with the good points and there aren’t many. Food-In general this was very good. Good quality and good selection. Food in Aqua and the Venetian was as good if not better than we have had on other cruises. Staff-In line with all other cruise lines stewards, waiters, bar ...

Half the service twice the gratuities

Review for a Caribbean - Eastern Cruise on Norwegian Joy

foyspa
10+ Cruises • Age 80s

This was our 2nd time on the Joy the first time in Haven this time balcony plus. Which is bigger bathroom. Overall the ship was clean after the 3 week drydock. Due to weather and rough seas we spent most of our time inside. The activities were very limited and usually basic bean bag toss, language lessons and trivia in the atrium. Then there were the usual art, bingo, and other extra charge games. ...

Cruising is not what it used to be

Review for a Caribbean - Western Cruise on Norwegian Breakaway

1gemini
10+ Cruises • Age 60s

We chose the NCL Breakaway because we were in New Orleans for Mardi Gras and have sailed NCL many times before. It’s a beautiful ship but the venues are not capable of handling the number of passengers on board. The showroom is smaller than those on smaller ships and required reservations on the only floor show twice on two days during the week. The show BURN THE FLOOR was good but it was ...

Review for a Mexican Riviera Cruise on Norwegian Bliss

jcauthen78
2-5 Cruises • Age 40s

This was my second cruise, the first was with Princess, this one was on the Norwegian Bliss. The Bliss was a pretty ship, decently clean and spacious, although there were spots that definitely showed the ships age - peeling paint in spots, chairs in restaurants with cracked seating pads (in one restaurant every single seat was beyond worn, and the majority were cracked and split). The rooms: ...

DO NOT GO ON NORWEGIAN EPIC!

Review for a Caribbean - Eastern Cruise on Norwegian Epic

Keegan Noverio
First Time Cruiser • Age 20s

This has to be the worst cruise I have ever been on in my life! First of all it is very dirty like some of the areas wasn’t clean at all and has dirt on them or stains and in our cabin room there was a straight up cockroach we found, only one luckily and we called guest services but they did nothing to help us. Another thing is that some of the workers on there are rude, specifically one bartender ...

Don't spend you money on this.

Review for a Caribbean - Western Cruise on Norwegian Epic

LBK2
2-5 Cruises • Age 50s

As others have said, lines, lines, and more lines. Want a drink - long line (average 20 minutes). Want to eat - good luck getting in any of the sit down restaurants - 45 minute wait the one time we went, 40 minute wait the second time. The app was about useless - not rhyme or reason to what you are "allowed to book" and what you aren't. You have to show up at least 30-40 minute before a show to ...
