in general ok, but it's too big for me. by Juchon

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Family (older children)

Too big for me. Especially, the company has an issue of efficient operating system: E.g., A long waiting line of customer service; unbelieable long waiting time to get off the ship. It is very unfortunate that the company was not predicting and preparing this with ~4000 people on the board.

Great trip by mbobeck

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

Overall a great trip, some more time on the port calls would have been nice. The luggage transfer to the airport was the worst part. Someone owes us $80. Today we found additional charges on our credit card and we don't know what they are for, they were not on our bill. Please contact use.

Worst Cruise ever by magicalpluto

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Family (older children)

Do not read any reviews for April Cruise on 2019. They are biased as they are from the Travel Agents who received a free cruise to go. Food was horrendous at the Garden Café. to the point we waited until we got to port to eat lunch. Even breakfast they screwed up. Do not let them take your luggage, you will never see it again. They do not know how to transfer your luggage in Seattle. Still do not have my luggage. Staff is CLUELESS. They do not speak English well and cannot answer your questions. Children's club took the kids to the nightclub where alcohol is served. Avoid the Joy and take another ship. Do not go for concierge level. After 5 days we went down to meet the Concierge as he never showed up, he was not at his station. Had to go to regular guest services to make dining reservations as he was never around. They even changed my show reservations and dining prior to getting on the ship and cancelled some dining reservations without asking me what I wanted.

14 Norwegian Joy Tips

make reservations for the dinners, shows and activities as soon as you can. I really wanted to try Ocean Blue restaurant & Teppayanki but couldn't get in because there weren't any openings.

Apr 30, 2019

Book everything as soon as you get on board at one of the screens (even before going to your stateroom!) All the popular activities fill up fast, especially the race track.

make sure you pre reserve entertainment and dining , and activities so you don't spend your cruise waiting in line.
