Great way to spend Thanksgiving! The snorkeling in Roatan was the best we have ever experienced. Chose the Norwegian snorkelng trip and it was excellent. We had beginners and experienced snorkelers in our family and the crew made sure everyone had a fabulous time. Main dining rooms were adequate but nothing special. The specialty dining venues were great...spent most of our meals in one of ...

My second cruise with Norwegian, I love the freestyle dining idea. The food was very good at the beginning of the trip. Towards the end they changed the menu for the Alaskan run, I did not like that menu much. Seemed to be mostly fish and seafood, very little choice if you are not into things from the sea. I ate mostly in the buffet after that. Cagneys Steak house was excellent, but I thought ...

The Pride of America in Hawaii was so awesome we decided to do the Panama Canal with Norwegian as well. We booked our excursions a through the online selections a long time before sailing, and found this to be a great idea. no last minute choices and the tickets in our cabin ready for us when we embarked. Lots to choose from at different levels of activity preferred. We enjoyed the food, ...

"Another don't-miss is Norwegian's signature Chocoholic's Buffet, held once per cruise on each ship. It's a magnificent sight to behold. " This quote is simply untrue as there was never a chocolate buffet..on two separate occasions we had water pouring from the ceiling in the hallway...4 to 5 buckets were placed on the floor to collect it...and when the weather turned cold our section of the ship ...

NCL standard has gone down.

It has been nearly 10 years since I last cruised on NCL. I found that on this cruise the level of service and quality of food served was considerably less than on my previous NCL cruises. NCL has too many 'specialty restaurants' in which the service level barely comes up to the level that used to be available in the general dining room. General dining room service is slow, inefficient and ...

Last year we both retired and we had a 1st cruise to the Alaska on board Celebrity Century. It was so relaxing trip and we enjoyed our moving hotel and services. This time we chose 19days Panama Canal Cruise by Norwegian Cruise Line. We had a wonderful time on board the Sun. A long 19days cruise, but every fellow passenger on board ship became a like best friend to us to the end. Kids were busy ...

BACKGROUND: My wife and I are both retired and have cruised Princess & Carnival multiple times (Platinum level). We’ve cruised with NCL before and decided to do a B2B with RC Brilliance OTS since it also sails from Tampa. Since I spent 5 years as a teacher, I decided to give letter grades for each component I reviewed. ARRIVAL + TAMPA: We booked our Jet Blue flight from Central New York ...

First Time Cruiser • Age 50s

I'm used to all inclusive vacations so was very skeptical about cruising. This was my first cruise so didn't really know what to expect and was afraid of getting bored and the hidden cost. Check in was as expected, some lines but it really didn't take too long. We took our 2 bottles of wine and were charged the expected "corking fee" of 15$ per bottle but found other couples who took several ...

This cruise is the top of the line when it comes to service= 5star for sure. I liked the emphasis on serving its customer as opposed to pushing their products. Wow what a relief. Made the cruise much more pleasureable. These folks are super friendly and really go out of their way to suit your needs. These folks genuinely care. Family experience! Entertainment was stellar. Laughed my butt off at ...
