Mediocre

This was a family cruise that had been planned for some time and with much anticipation. When we boarded there was no one to greet us as we entered the ship...again no one. Numerous bars were not open during the ...

Not much to do

The problems started out with Embarkation. As Latitudes members we were supposed to have Priority Check-in. When we got to the terminal, it was only for Gold or higher. So we got in a line that ending up taking 1 ...

First and Last time on Norwegian

While our overall vacation was good, there's too much competition for my cruising dollar to put up with the issues we had on Norwegian. Admittedly, a lot of it is nit-picky, but not when you're going through it. ...

Too crowded

We chose this cruise because it was going out of NY and we wouldn't have to fly. The problem with this ship is the size and amount of people it holds. You could not do anything on this ship without reservations. I ...

Crowded, poor service, awful food

This ship is extremely overcrowded. You will stand in lines, push through crowds, and loose most of your excursion time due to waits related to overcrowding. The cabins are too small and balconies are tiny. Don’t ...

Bored and subpar entertainment, shady NCL practices, but some enjoyment

I was on this cruise for a wedding. I'm not big on cruises at all so perhaps my ratings are a bit pessimistic. I was bored for a large amount of the time, highly annoyed at the lack of internet access that didn't ...
