Review summary

From the beginning to the end NCL crew met every need we had. It was an enjoyable cruise and we will definitely visit some of these places again!

Embarking was so simple! No problems at all.

Ship experiences

Food and Dining

3 out of 5
The food in the Grand Pacific was not as good as usual. We had pork belly that was a little dry and several of the main courses were not up to the usual NCL standard. But the specialty dinning was fantastic! The buffet was about the same as the other NCL ships we've been on. The service/servers were incredible in all of the restaurants. Above and beyond the required service.

Onboard Activities

My husband visited the fitness center. It was good. We didn't really do to much on this cruise aboard ship.

Everything was beautiful.

Cabin / Stateroom

4 out of 5
The cabin was beautiful. The only complaint I would have is that the beds were way too hard and way too close to the wall!! That was a bit of a pain...

Ship tip

One tip I would say is don't wait unitl the last day to get a detailed list of your charges. The line is crazy. The other is ask...these people working on the ship are so helpful and kind about everything.

Ports of call

Civitavecchia (Rome), Italy Did not visit port

We flew in the same day and went right to the ship.

Santorini, Greece

5 out of 5
Santorini is beautiful. The excursion was fun with A LOT of walking up and down hills. The guides were so kind, my father in law and I have mobility issues and they went out of their way to accommodate us. Our guide was very good.

Piraeus (Athens), Greece

5 out of 5
Beautiful! We got to see a lot of the area and stopped for a couple of photo shoots. The museum was wonderful. Again, the guide was thoughtful of our handicaps.

Mykonos, Greece

5 out of 5

Livorno (Florence & Pisa), Italy

We've been here before so it was just nice to relax and walk around, have lunch, etc. It was mostly on our own so no pressure. We went shopping!
