It all started when I made reservations with an NCL AGENT for an 11 day cruise in southern Caribbean because we wanted to see St Lucia. . The agent told us that the Norwegian Dawn was a small ship but was remodelled ad looked really nice! He told us the cabin was going to be deluxe and great location ! This info stirred me sexy from getting a balcony cabin.he did not book our cabin but waited for ...

We recently cruised for 11 days to 6 different islands in the Southern Carribean on the Norwegian Pearl. Everything from beginning to end was absolutely wonderful! It was a repositioning cruise starting in Tampa, FL and ending in NYC! We went to the Cayman Islands, Aruba, Bonaire, St. Lucia, St. Kitts, St. Thomas and NYC. We took port exercusions to all these beautiful islands, each being a little ...

The reviews of HAL out here lately have been snarky. We had a lovely time some years back in Canada on the Veendam. For some reason we strayed – but we can’t remember why. I had one open week in March and searched on price and a few of my criteria. The Rotterdam was the cheapest for ocean view- and for Mariner members we got $100 off on HAL.COM. One thing to watch for on OV on some ...

This was my 4th year in a row sailing aboard this ship for a themed cruise run by Norwegians company sixthman. TERRIBLE IS AN UNDERSTATEMENT FOR THIS YEAR! The staff was rude and careless! Sewage issues on decks 4 and 10... lets start there. Plastic bags being suspended from the ceilings filled with human waste!!! Pool towels on the floor to capture any spillage. As if that wasn’t bad enough ...

We chose this cruise for convenience of the port. My husband had a course in Orlando on January 12 and 13, so we quickly drove to Tampa when his class finished and boarded by 2:00. This is the smallest ship that we have been on, but it offered the delicious food that Holland America is known for and that we enjoy. Our ports were Key West, Puerto Rico, St Thomas, Antigua, St Lucia, Curacao, ...

My wife and I have cruised with all the big and not so big cruise lines. As it was our 23rd wedding anniversary, we splashed our on a Neptune level suite (7039). On our arrival at the dock in Tampa for embarkation, the paperwork was dealt with in minutes and very soon we were outside our suite. On entering we were delighted. It was spacious and clean. The veranda was enormous with 2 sun ...

I specifically chose the ports of call, rather than the ship. But the Rotterdam and myself were a perfect fit. I love the smaller ships which do not make one feel like "another head in a bed", or like cattle being herded in or out of the ship. I loved my room near the front of the ship on the Dolphin Deck. The ship was very stable, but I like the bigger waves which I could hear slap the sides ...

we took this for the convenience of the Port of Tampa, having done several HA in the past knew Its reputation for being a stable product. The ship is very nice layed out well with lots of" nooks and crannies" to read in or watch the sea. We liked the feel of the ship and the ease of getting around. The Rotterdam has a lot going for it in its staff and service, it is however, lacking to much for ...

Week long cruise with my mom and niece. Neptune suite 7034 with shower only was perfect for my mom who has trouble getting in and out of a bathtub / shower combo. Enjoyed the piano bar, comedian, and music on board. Ports were good - except we did not do anything in Guatemala. Had rented a wheel chair for my mom in advance through travel agent which was in the cabin when we arrived. ...

We did this same itinerary about 9 months ago on the same ship but decided on this one because we were going with some friends and the price was right. We had not done a 21 day cruise and wanted to see how we handled it as we are looking at a 28 day cruise to the south pacific. Overall, the ship is in pretty good shape considering its over 20 years old. The crew and staff were excellent, as always ...
