Review summary

Carnival Cruise Lines are the only way I’ll sail. I’ve had 4 great cruises and the first time I tried another company I felt robbed of my time and insulted. Norwegian could have cared less too. I’ll make sure anyone I hear mention a cruise hears about the rip off that is Norwegian

Great food options. Every restaurant was great and so many options to choose from that’s included in cruise fare already unlike Norwegian

Onboard Activities

5 out of 5
I took the exact cruise a month ago with Norwegian and yes Norwegian May have had more outdoor activities but they were barely open. I noticed carnival vista next to us with plenty of outdoor activities that were open at port. Norwegians was closed at port and when sailing only open for 2-3 hours a day.

Also unlike Norwegian there were plenty of outdoor parties. The one interesting party Norwegian had outdoors I missed bc I couldn’t get an itinerary although asking all day. Then the party started at 11 and was over by 12:30.

Ship tip

I felt so robbed of my time off and wasted vacation time I was deeply disappointed so my husband surprised me with a cruise line we had taken before and enjoyed. I was offered 100$ off towards a future Norwegian cruise but gladly paid more. Trust me they may be running cheaper tickets but they have sneaky charges and what’s the savings worth if you’re stuck on a boat with nothing to do. Activities were all extra or classes that were free we were told reservations weren’t needed only to find out differently. Also you’re allowed to bring can cokes and carton juices which Norwegian forbids. This saved a lot. Internet packages were cheaper and we weren’t nickel and dimmed to death
