MSC Divina

June 2015 - MSC Divina to Europe - Eastern Mediterranean

"Beautiful ship, easy to get around, staff was great. On board entertainment a little lacking. Shore excurisons were fine, could have used a little more time in port, as well as, a little more time at sea. "

Norwegian Breakaway

November 2014 - Norwegian Breakaway to Caribbean - Bahamas

"Great ship, easy to get around and the speciality resturants were great. Ports of Call were OK, been to them before, used this crusie to just kickback and relax."

Norwegian Epic

June 2010 - Norwegian Epic to Transatlantic

"New Ship - London to New York "

Norwegian gets it right

We have been on several Norwegian cruise ships, this is one of the best. Our balcony cabin was great seemed a little small for 4 people but it worked well, not problem with the bath facilities loved the concept of the shower being separate. The layout of the ship was well suited for getting from the forward theater to the adult pool deck area. Dining was fabulous even in the main dining room, crew were on top of the orders, the only problem we found was the casino was one deck up from the dining room and the smoke and noise got a little heavy. Loved the Jazz club spent almost every night enjoying the music and atmosphere. Great shows Blue Man group were terrific, as well as, the the Circus dinner show. Only problem we had onboard was the area by the water-slides, decks were always wet and slippery, there were a couple of spots were you could bump your head if not careful. So for a new vessel I found it well worth the trip.

gjp's Tips

Bari, Italy - Nice city loved walking around the fort
Dubrovnik, Croatia - Loved this city, we walked the wall, had lunch at a small seaside cafe
Santorini, Greece - Greatest sopt on the planet, love the views of the sea from high up, we had the best Greek salad, winery was a little disapointing
Venice, Italy - Loved walking around the city and taking the water bus or taxis when we went out. PS the food was great.
Piraeus (Athens), Greece - Piraeus to Athens - take my advise and use the train to get into the city - lost a lot of time sitting in traffic.
