We spent several days in New Orleans before the cruise because...well...it’s N’awlins! We stayed close enough to the port so walking there was easy. Embarkation was fairly easy; we boarded with our two carry ...

Overall a great experience

We chose this cruise because it ended in New Orleans, right across the lake from our home town of Slidell. We have never been to Europe and thought it would be a good opportunity to see our roots, and loved the idea ...

A first timer's dream and nightmare - It's not a vacation for the faint hearted

We were a group of 10 people (8 adults and 2 children) celebrating my parent's 50 Anniversary and thought the cruise would be the perfect holiday for everyone to bond and spend quality time. We live in Dubai ...

The Baltics on the Norwegian Getaway

I chose it because I wanted something that will include St. Petersburg with it and the Baltics. I thought since the ship was carrying 4500 passengers and 2500 crew members that it will be like lining up for a ...

The service was good. The room was kept clean and orderly on our schedule. The food staff and the bust boys were always courteous. The busy bartenders had kept their smiles up the entire duration. "Neli" rocks. ...
