Great relaxing transatlantic cruise by EbonyCruiser

Sail date: / Traveled as: Singles/Friends
Ship: Allure of the Seas / Destination: Transatlantic

The Allure was scheduled to go into dry dock in Cadiz for a major makeover. Once returned to fleet, new and improved public areas. I enjoyed this 12-night TA cruise that had only one port of call—Malaga. What I did not like was moving clocks up 1-hour at noon on day 3, 4, 6, 7, 9 and 10. No need for breakfast...went straight for lunch. Go to the 15-minute fountain show and Johnny Rockets for breakfast at least once if you do this cruise. Blue Planet was excellent! You gotta see the tree!!! Suggest seeing Mama Mia during early evening because of its runtime (147 mins.) excluding the time to get to the theater and obtain a seat. Leaves the rest of the evening for dinner and/or other evening events.

Great Transatlantic by dhamel

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Allure of the Seas / Destination: Transatlantic

This was a great transatlantic cruise. Fortunately, this mega ship was 50% occupancy giving us the opportunity to have deck chairs at will and extra space everywhere on the ship.

It was a real thrill of being on the inaugural voyage of the Splendor. by HSM

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Seven Seas Splendor / Destination: Transatlantic

The ship is beautiful. The staff was the best we've ever experienced. The calm seas, we were told, was the best the captain had experience in her 10 years of Atlantic crossings. The weather was perfect. This trip was so good we booked another transatlantic crossing while on the ship.

Fantastic small ship by TShea

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Pacific Princess / Destination: Transatlantic

Great experience with this small ship, only 600+ passengers. Allows you to meet more passengers and the crew to know you.

Meh Transatlantic by bonfamily

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Norwegian Star / Destination: Transatlantic

Relaxing 14 day crossing. Lecturer, a forensic geologist, made the trip for us. There are very few children on a crossing, yet most of the television and theater movies are children's movies, which makes no sense.

TransAtlantic on MegaShip with nice itinerary...but coordination sometimes problematic by davidleehall

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Norwegian Epic / Destination: Transatlantic

We enjoyed the ship itinerary and all the onboard activities and shows very much. Also the personnel generally do a good job of handling so many many people. Expecially the dining room staff were very nice, attentive and professional. We enjoyed those aspects of the cruise. The cabin small but the bed very comfortable. And a really nice balcony. On the other hand, It was very slow coming onto and getting off the ship (mostly Embarkation/Disembarkation.....not so much in the ports of call). Very little communication on the Embarcation and Disembarkation process. Guest Services was nice but uncoordinated with some of our issues (with the squeeling noise). We've only been on one other smaller NCL Jade, which we did enjoy a lot. I'm not sure if this ship is just too big. Or we had some bad luck. We like NCL but would have to think twice before going on a similar ship.

The worst experience of my life on vacation ... by misquerubines

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Norwegian Epic / Destination: Transatlantic

The worst experience of my life on vacation ... First time using this cruise line and the experience was shocking ... never in my life had I had to make so many lines ... disastrous activities or would have to be paid ... disastrous television ... they charge you up to the movies. If you are going to play billiards, bowling and other activities you have to pay them extra ... they charged me tips twice on the bill and there daily. They never send a statement. They never send instructions for the process of taking bags last night (or even a regular customer), luggage tags have to go to pick them up for customer service (and guess that; because nobody told me). Many arrogant employees and show performers do not even say ... anyway ... I will never use this line again ... The only good thing is meals, cleanliness and hygiene ...

2019 Transatlantic by Cathybranch

Sail date: / Traveled as: Singles/Friends
Ship: Norwegian Star / Destination: Transatlantic

Very disappointing experience this year ... ship resources felt lacking and cruise director staff and entertainment felt second class. While we prefer to sail on smaller ships, it appears NCL is putting all resources to larger and newer ships and that feels very wrong

Beyond expectations. With a packed list of activities, there was never a dull moment even with 9 days at sea. by evibat10

Sail date: / Traveled as: Family (older children)
Ship: Norwegian Star / Destination: Transatlantic

As a mother-daughter cruise, this was a perfect setting. We had plenty of time together while we were able to do separate activities. Then we joined again at the pool and the buffets gave us the freedom to pack everything in a day that we wanted. Our highlight were the fantastic shows in the evening. My daughter was able to sing in the talent show the last night and she was thrilled about this unforgettable opportunity and experience to sing live with an 8 man professional orchestra.
