Great cruise!

Embarkation was a nightmare due to the computer system crashing but overall was a great cruise. It was our first NCL cruise but would definitely cruise with them again.

We were very pleased with our experience. I had several cruises prior, it was my companion first cruise, he was very happy and content with the trip. We will do other cruises and hope to have the same excellent experience.

Not family friendly

Nov 6th, 2019

We will never cruise with Norwegian again. We cruised as a family with our 20, 16, and 14 year old. Not much for them to do especially with water activities. All of the hot tubs were adult only. Of the 2 pools, 1 was adult only and the other was basically a kiddie pool. We paid for 2 cabins and Norwegian didn’t even make an attempt at locating them near each other. Each was on the extreme opposite ends of the ship and on different floors. So not family friendly. When I kindly mentioned it the didn’t seem to care and then they blamed the travel agent. Our precious cruise which was on Royal Caribbean was exactly the opposite as they were super family friendly and placed our rooms next to each other. Anyhow, if looking for a more family friendly cruise line with kind and accommodating staff, I would look to Royal Caribbean and not Norwegian.

First Cruise Experience

Nov 5th, 2019

This was our first cruise, and it was a good experience. Embarkation was the rockiest part of the whole week - it got better once we got on the ship! Our favorite parts were the excursions - we were not sure if we should have booked one at each port, but as it turned out, we were glad we did (although some seemed fairly pricey). Great selection of food and entertainment.

Amazing Caribbean Cruise

Nov 5th, 2019

This was my first cruise on Norwegian and I will be back . I already bought a package. My only complaint is the smell of smoke .. There should only be inclosed smoking area and none in the casino you could smell it thru that floor..

For the most part this was a great cruise with so many memories made! The bartenders in O'sheens could have been better. Probably could have used more staff behind the bar. The pool staff did a great job keeping up!! Our room steward Paul was awesome! He made towel animals for our son who looked forward to going to bed just to see his surprise! He even made my husband and I a cake towel with heart swans on top with a special note for our anniversary!! Weather was fantastic every day! Can't wait to cruise next year!!!
