Norwegian Star

February 2017 - Norwegian Star to Australasia

Despite some challenges, cruise was awesome

The itinerary for this cruise was amazing. We really enjoyed all of the ports as well as the sea days. One of my favorite things about this cruise was the captain who gave us daily reports of the waterways, the ports, the weather and some of the history of the area we were in. 

The downside to this cruise was that there were several changes in the itinerary and NCL was not good about keeping us informed of the changes. Despite this we would definately do this cruise again. It was well worth the money.

Norwegian Jade

October 2016 - Norwegian Jade to Transatlantic

Super, relaxing cruise

Being on our first TransAtlantic cruise was exciting. We spent the first few days in ports in Spain and then Portugal, followed by a long series of sea days. The sea days actually went longer than planned due to the storm in Bermuda. The captain wisely decided to go around the storm and stay in calmer waters.

for the most part we loved the cruise. What we didn't like we're some of the changes to NCL's programs and benefits. If you are a latitude person you know that gold and platinum have, in the past, had preference embarkation. This perk has been removed by NCL. Also, the dining package has now been changed to 3 dinners for up to 9 nights at sea and 4 dinners for anything beyond that.  Also you are only allowed certain items in the ala carte restaurants. 

We would definately recommend this cruise to everyone. It's just nice to know the NCL "cuts" in advance. Wonder what will go away next.

Norwegian Sun

August 2015 - Norwegian Sun to Alaska - Gulf of Alaska

Excellent scenery; amazing crew

This was a great cruise.  Being on the Sun which is one of the smaller ships in the fleet we were especially happy with the service. 

The itinerary was great. Being able to see both Hubbard Bay and Glacier Bay was exciting. The were both breathtaking.

Norwegian Jewel

April 2015 - Norwegian Jewel to Panama Canal, Central America

Great Itinerary

The itinerary on this cruise was awesome. The Panama Canal should be on everyone's must do list. Also all of the ports we visited were full of adventures. I would not recommend this cruise for small children since the average age of the passengers was 66. The one issue that we had was with some of the service. While all of our problems were taken care of it was unfortunate that we had to complain since service is one of the main reasons we cruise. The food was excellent. We ate at the buffet for breakfast and lunch and the specialty restaurants for dinner. We enjoyed each of the different options.

BoulderCruisers's Tips

Port Kelang - This was a new port for cruise ships and it was awesome. The people went out of their way to make us feel welcome.
Astoria, Oregon - Walked the town, tried some beer and promised ourselves we would come back.
Acapulco, Mexico - Great feeling of security. It was nice to be one of the first cruise ships to come back.
Norwegian Jewel Norwegian Jewel - Watch the carpet in the hallways to find which way is forward. The fish always swim to the bow.
