Review summary

Overall I was pretty disappointed with Norwegian. Our previous cruises with them were much better. They seemed unorganized and lacked the extra touch for making a great trip. I’ll probably pick a different cruise line next time.

Awful. NCL can’t control the weather but they can certainly do better at communicating.

We found several times where staff seemed to just be going through the motions. They did not strike me as a happy crew.

We did a private charter with Go Fish Charters. It was fantastic!

This was our least favorite port. Do not waste your time going to Peggys Cove. What a disappointment.

Rent a car and go visit the Fundy Trail Parkway. Beautiful!

On time and well executed. Funny it was the easiest trip off the ship compared to any of the ports. Guess they wanted to get rid of us ;-)
