"Vacation Cruise was for a group of 6 couples, celebrating multiple birthdays. Cruise was far from all inclusive as our bill at the end of the week was almost $700 and this was with the beverage package thrown into..."Read More

My husband and I got married in the courthouse swearing we would have a wedding eventually! Wellllll 3 years later we decided to use the money we were saving to go on a trip! We chose this journey across the atlantic and we are so happy we did we absolutely loved it! the only small negative is that the water was too rough to pull into ponta del gata so we were at sea for like 7 days straight. Not ...

We have sailed with NCL before and feel that they give fair value for the money. They have always treated us with respect, and we find their food and entertainment to our satisfaction. We missed a port in the Azores due to weather conditions, but nobody other than God is to blame for that. It was more important to maintain the safety of those on board than cater to our desires. The transferring ...

The NCL free promotions for dining and beverages etc is a real differentiator. I have noticed that in the last few years the cruise lines are now up charging for everything and it is very annoying. I would rather pay a little more and not have to be nickel and dimed. At RC (Royal Carribbien) and Princess you now have many items on the menu which are at additional cost. Seriously - it just ...

We were slightly apprehensive going on our first NCL cruise on a large ship like the Getaway given some of the negative reviews. However, we had a great time and can’t believe why some people are so critical. There are, to be fair a few areas that could be improved but overall a lovely ship with pleasant, helpful staff. We had a balcony cabin which was very spacious with a lovely shower (glass ...

Booked this cruse at the last minute because the price, $306.00 for an interior room. Ended up getting upgraded to a midship balcony through the Upgrade Andvantage program. Had read a lot of horror stories about embarking from NOLA but overall it wasn't too bad, the line was long but it moved at a steady rate. Disembarking went very smooth, found our luggage immediately. We spent a day and a half ...

My wife and I were celebrating our 20th anniversary so we decided we'd try NCL booking the Haven. Well worth it at the price point we got. Service was great...priority embarkation/debarkation was terrific! Made the whole thing worth it right there! The entertainment was great. We really enjoyed The Million Dollar Quartet, the actors were excellent. Burn the Floor was quite a show, too. We did pay ...

We booked this cruise only a couple of months in advance to get out of town at Mardi Gras. We usually do go somewhere Mardi Gras week because school is out for the week. Although we had just cruised on the Getaway at Thanksgiving 2019, we figured why not? Because we are local to the New Orleans area, it is not necessary to fly to cruise for us, and that’s convenient. We love cruising. We already ...

We choose this cruise because we had not been to most of the stops nor traveled with Norwegian and wanted to give it a try. Aside from the embarkation which was a NIGHTMARE because we waited in lines for over 3 hours with absolutely no communication from anyone regarding what was going on! People were lined up on the street for what seemed like miles. We heard rumor the ship was 3 hours late ...

My wife and I chose this cruise mainly based on price. We traveled on our own to New Orleans and spent two nights there before the cruise. We enjoyed Bourbon Street, a ride on the streetcars, and the World War 2 Museum. The museum was awesome. We stayed at the Lafayette Hotel and were able to walk to the ship. If you don't have a lot of heavy luggage, and are staying the the ...

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 ones, headed for O’Sheehan’s and waited for cabins to be available. The biggest drawback to our cabin location is that it overlooked the bow. Great view, but a challenging obstacle course ...
