Enjoyable with a few exceptions by vlwilson1107

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Norwegian Joy / Destination: Caribbean - Western

The cruise was nice and even though it rained for the first three days there was plenty to do. Very few guests onboard which made it really relaxing. Plenty of staff and Danny at Spice H2O was terrific

Finally back on the ship! by Abook21

Sail date: / Traveled as: Family (older children)
Ship: Norwegian Joy

Third time we re-booked this cruise due to Covid. It was much anticipated and we were very glad to finally get on board. We had travel issues due to weather getting to the port and ended up driving from buffalo, ny to Miami. It was not ideal, but the trip was so worth it! We had an amazing time, staff members could not have been more gracious and willing to help in any way they could.

Wonderful! Ready to go again!! by jscable3

Sail date: / Traveled as: Family (older children)
Ship: Norwegian Joy / Destination: Caribbean - Western

I would cruise before April because of the heat and humidity. Maybe a singles get together would have been nice. Otherwise staff, cleanliness, food, and entertainment, was excellent.

First and Last by brownidman

Sail date: / Traveled as: Family (older children)
Ship: Norwegian Joy / Destination: Caribbean - Southern

Many basics of a cruise were mishandled by this crew. For example, they had a nice handout with a map of the ship and a list of embarkation activities and hours of operation for the various bars, etc.; however, it was not handed out until the next day, making it, except for the ship map, useless.

Amazing Cruise with the Family! by mnmgbwi

NCL for the win again! Love this cruiseline - they know how to do it right. 1/3 capacity was amazing. Staff were exceptional. Wish I could have stayed on longer!

Partially disappointed 😞 by rtgolfergg

Sail date: / Traveled as: Singles/Friends
Ship: Norwegian Joy / Destination: Caribbean - Western

Dissatisfied with Buffett being mostly cold food. Entertainment was good and plentiful. Bartenders were on the top of their game. I think the ship holds 3400 we had 3000 and one pool was ridiculous. The casino was large and nicely spread out.

Great Cruise by ninab84

Sail date: / Traveled as: Singles/Friends
Ship: Norwegian Joy / Destination: Caribbean - Western

This was my first cruise and I really enjoyed it. The food and staff were exceptional. I would like to do another cruise at some point once COVID restrictions are over and masks are no longer needed. I did hate wearing masks but I understand why it was necessary.

Ship: Norwegian Joy / Destination: Bermuda

Overall we had a great time on our cruise. The Haven is amazing and it will be hard to cruise without it. Bermuda is beautiful and may go back in the future.

Awesome cruise, everything was perfect! by ifbgaryj

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Norwegian Joy / Destination: Caribbean - Western

I wouldn't miss this cruise! By Cozumel we were pretty worn out. The last full day at sea was nice and relaxing by the pool. One tip for laying by the pool. Grab your towels the night before and be there to put your towels on a lounger no later than 5:30-6 am. Otherwise you will not get a lounger. Go back after breakfast or lunch. No one bothered the towels.

DISAPPOINTED by thebensens

Sail date: / Traveled as: Family (older children)
Ship: Norwegian Joy / Destination: Bermuda

Scheduled entertainment was cancelled with no explanation. Getting on and off was a disaster. Not enough staff. Charged extra for more tests to enter Bermuda. Up all night with furniture banging around the floor above, got no assist. Always book the Haven and always very happy with NCL....UNTIL THIS ONE! SAD

HORRIBLE by murrensonllc

Sail date: / Traveled as: Singles/Friends
Ship: Norwegian Joy / Destination: Caribbean - Western

We got scammed out of $260 in Roatan, our boat broke down in Harvest Caye, the Bacalar blue lagoon was a rained out bust and we didn’t port in Cozumel. Not to mention the Parrothead group on our ship that booked the only bar with a smoking area and we couldn’t be served from that bar while they were there. We had to go down a deck and walk to the pool bar to be served. It was the worst vacation I’ve ever had.

Relaxing and Enjoyable by mermaidsails

Sail date: / Traveled as: Singles/Friends
Ship: Norwegian Joy

This was my second Bermuda cruise - the first being my very first cruise with NCL on the Escape in 2018. The weather was a bit cooler in late April and we had some clouds and rain, but Bermuda never disappoints. The people are wonderful and the port offers plenty to do and see without spending a lot of money. Although next time I will do a full week cruise where we spend another day in port, I felt this was a great option to spend some time in a beautiful place. The water alone is gorgeous! You don’t even see turquoise like that in the Caribbean. The Joy is a gorgeous ship and I wish I had more time to spend on her enjoying all she has to offer. Still haven’t gotten to see Footloose, but that just means I need to go book another cruise.
