Not enough time in port

Dec 10th, 2018

In at 8:00 out before dinner. I wanted to see the islands not the ship. It's nice to have a meal onshore. It's getting harder to get away from the port area without being rude, and the touts are getting more aggressive. I was jealous of the folks that sailed their own hull as we all paraded back to the mothership. Other than the inescapable number of people that come ashore, not only from our ship, but the other two or three at the pier, it was a decent experience. Patience is rewarded, a lot of our fellows are older, and need extra time, and priority on the elevators. The boats motion is so smooth I was surprised to look out and see we were well out to sea a number of times. Even in high winds, moderate seas it was smooth and comfortable.

The ship was clean. The food was so so not the best. I had a bad experience with the duty free store, but that's okay they pick and choose who they wanted to help. Inspight of my negative vibes with my experience on this ship I have to say my stewardess was thee best from day one till the end thank you Chona for all that you did. I've been a loyal customer with Ncl think it's time to switch up.

Awesome Southern Caribbean Cruise

Dec 7th, 2018

The cruise was amazing. The couple of issues we had with our room were taken care of immediately (safe batteries were low and the closet door hinges came off. All of the ports had good excursions available but I was very disappointed in St Lucia because they canceled my snorkeling excursion (they said due to lack of participation). How does not enough people want to snorkel? All in all, it was wonderful!

Nice ship a bit small but wonderful. Great staff and nice onboard shopping. The only thing I did not like was the Tropical Four band they were ok with Spanish music but TERRIBLE with Caribbean music. The cruise line could do much better in terms of Caribbean entertainment to give the cruisers a true sense of the Caribbean on and off the ship.

FAIR- Compared to other cruise lines Norwegian has ranked fair.

Nov 27th, 2018

The two serious negative experiences that I describe in this review the Medical Clinic, Guest Services, and Security left me a bad impression about Norwegian. I have taken cruises with several other cruise lines (Celebrity, Royal Caribbean, Carnival, Crystal) and have never had such negative experiences. I will recommend against Norwegian in the future in favor of the competition. Please feel free to contact me for further information if you truly wish to correct these wrongs.
