Ship logistics are disorganized

Logistics getting on and off the cruise, especially debarkation which was the worst of any of the 25 plus times we have cruised. We had the drink package which did not include water in the room or the self service wine bar in the buffet. The lines at the bar discouraged getting a drink. Drinks with meals were no problem. We had specialty dining. However, getting a reservation was difficult or ...

We chose this cruise along with 12 others to celebrate a 50 year birthday, several had not cruised but, I had. We were supposed to get off at a private island but, we did not - said weather was bad and more coming, nothing but sun that day, the bottom line is they hit a reef and then we were penalized. Spoke with several other people on ship one couple had been several times and have failed to ...

Age 50s

Met up with 3 other families and was part of the game convention. The cruise was nothing special, too many people for the staff. Long waits for drinks little or no service from staff and the wait for all restaurants was unacceptable, 30-60 minutes before waiters and then 30-60 minutes before food arrived. On top of that our stop at the cay was canceled due to high waves. You would think a ...

Epic Failure

I bought a full beverage package, but still had to pay for a bottle of water, ridiculous! Also carried on 2 bottles of my own wine, requiring a $15/bottle corkage fee especially when I'm also paying the full beverage package is larceny! Norwegian should be ashamed of this policy. Other cruise lines do not do this. The bars were nice, but overcrowded and understaffed, which made them not as nice as ...

Huge Disappointment

My fiancée (well, as of the last night of the cruise) and I were excited to join fifteen (15) friends on this cruise which was arranged primarily for the 40th Bday celebration of one of our friends. The embarkation process seemed smooth, not knowing what to expect as this was my first cruise, but others in our group, previous cruisers, were not as satisfied. The cabin was pretty much what we ...

We have never cruised before and this looked and sounded amazing. We flew in the morning of and out the afternoon we got back. Embarkation ad disembarkation went smoothly. Much of this ship has been renovated, some they are working on. Our Balcony stateroom was nice but every single time I went to enjoy our balcony, someone was smoking on another balcony. This was a huge disappointment as I ...

I'll start with the things I enjoyed about about the ship. 1) I enjoyed the drink package! But, sometimes the wait at the bars were crazy. It was tolerable but could have been better. 2) The balcony view. It was wonderful sitting out every morning and night. 3) In the beginning, the staff was very nice. 4) The food at the specialty dining restaurants was very good. The buffet was ...

A group of us that are Super fans from NFL teams chose to cruise to the Bahamas, Over all the experience was not great. Food was decent, but service was slow or non existent. Ship was clean but the crew did not seem friendly and seemed disinterested, They did not make you feel welcome. This did not include everyone, just the majority. We did find some that seemed to have fun and made you feel ...

An Epic Fail

Age 50s

We chose this cruise for the 2 ports in 4 days due to time constraints and to try one of NCL "larger ships" unfortunately the layout of the top deck (lido) is crammed, pools are small, the pool in the adult only did not even open on the sea day. Dining was very plain, the food was never changing at main dining and buffet. Both were just acceptable, not notworthy and I find it hard to understand ...

My husband and I decided on a last minute cruise and had never been on NCL before. We were excited to try something besides Disney Cruise Line to compare and contrast. We waited for 45 minutes outside in line before even getting into the terminal. From the beginning to the end of the cruise 4 days later, we waited in long, long lines for everything--even to restaurants that we had reservations ...
