This was our 3rd NCL cruise, but the 1st on a boat with nearly 4,000 passengers. This is a lengthy and hopefully an informative review. Executive Summary - It’s in the title of the review, NCL Stayaway or as ...

Let's rename it the Norwegian 'Go Away'

Pros: Nice balcony room Great entertainment Cons: Embarkation was a disorganized mess. Told there would be a 'casino at sea' line but never saw it. Took one hour and fifteen minutes to check in. ...

Norwegian Getaway

So before I start this is my first review I have ever done. This alone should show my dissatisfaction with this cruise line. After being on multiple cruises we decided to book a Norwegian Cruise, as we had not ...

Hectic and poorly run

We've done many cruises (Royal Caribbean, Disney, etc.) so this review is written based on careful and objective comparison. Too many bad experiences on Getaway, it's hard to start. Our bottom-line: we'll avoid ...

Worst Cruise Ever

The boat itself was beautiful and well kept. However, the service is one of the worst. The staff all seemed new and unfamiliar with the boat. They were not very attentive. The bartenders took forever to get drinks ...

Terrible lines, noise and crowds.

The lines, noise and crowds were terrible. For example, the organization of the immigration clearance in Miami was terrible and unforgivable. We shuffled in line for an hour and a half, for no reason, to get to ...

NCL DOESN'T CARE ABOUT ITS PASSENGERS

It was obvious that NCL management cares only about how much money they can make. For example, the ship stopped in Miami for only a few hours and took on fuel and provisions there. Every passenger had to go ...

First, read the Danforth family review. No need for me to repeat everything there. It is ALL correct - even a bit mild. Overall, organization was lacking. Processes were disorganized; we heard the word ...

Pretty awful, still have PTSD from the experience!

I would just concur with the poster who wrote "Marginal and Loud" as their headline. If you like really big, really loud, really overcrowded, and really under-serviced ships, then this ones for you. Otherwise I ...
