1st Norwegian Cruise, we weren’t impressed. I felt the communication was vague on port days and disembark. The beds were SO stiff, I slept horribly for 7 nights, never felt this miserable on my previous cruises. Took me a while to figure out the lighting

Never trying Norwegian again, paid over 2k for a 7 night cruise and it was way overpriced! Food was boring and limited, entertainment overbooked and small pool hardly happening at late afternoon, kids over run the main pool and hot tubs!

Spring Break Cruise 2020

Mar 21st, 2020

We had a great cruise. It was the last cruise before the COVID-19 pandemic caused NCL to cancel all itineraries. They took many extra precautions to prevent anyone from getting sick. They did a great job taking care of everyone and were working extra hard to keep everything clean. We were very impressed and had a great time. The weather was excellent except one day where it rained for a few hours at port. Lots of kids and young adults - as expected for a spring break cruise. Great entertainment, great food and drinks, casino was nice, and lots of variety in activities throughout the day.

Amazing First Cruise

Mar 19th, 2020

We had a great time for our first cruise. We “over packed” as we were told would happen. We loved the excursions and all the activities that were offered. Looking forward to our next cruise!

Enjoyable cruise on a fabulous ship with excellent crew members

Mar 18th, 2020

Our cruise was relaxing, even with high winds, and churning waters (at times). The staff was always polite, and even happy to work with us. Our food in any given eatery was to our taste. This itinerary made us realize we can do different things to improve our experience (such as plan an excursion, or sail a different time of year). The Waterfront on deck 8 was a treasure!

Great trip with family but not so much with Norwegian

Overall, me and the kids had a blast. Several complaints about the ship that needs correcting such as embarkation, food quality, and disembarking.

Very nice cruise, TV needs more show options. Sometimes you just want to relax and watch tv in your cabin.

Crowded, but a fun getaway

Ports were great, but would definitely choose different ship next cruise. Vibe took up space with not much use. Pool was super small for a warm weather cruise!

It was OK, but I would look for better

First time cruiser. While I had a lot of good times, there was a lot I didn't care for. It seemed like most of the cruise was about drinking. And while I do not mind cutting back and enjoying myself, I don't drink like many seemed to be. I wanted more from a cruise than that. There was a number of shows, but many cost extra to see, and I would have hoped entertainment would be included. There is a lot of up charges I wasn't aware of. For example a can of soda costs, a soda fountain drinks do not with the drink package. The drink package did not include the drinks in the room. And there was a number of up charges for the drinks I ordered. So I guess if they used some more expensive booze it cost extra. We spend an extra $200 in room charges for this and that.
