NCL Joy Bermuda by meinersd

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Norwegian Joy / Destination: Bermuda

Wrong time of year to visit Bermuda. Wait until May at least. Bermuda permits were unusual but fairly easy to get after you pay $40 and get tested for covid. Didn't receive permit until night before the cruise when we were already in NY. Made us nervous because what if they denied or did not respond, but it worked out OK. 1st thing NCL asked at the pier for was the Bermuda permit and test results so you must get both. Cruise line was fine. Will book NCL again but will check deck plans closely before booking.

Bermuda is beautiful by nancysn

Sail date: / Traveled as: Large Group
Ship: Norwegian Joy / Destination: Bermuda

Joy staff amazing Joy Haven rooms very nice Joy Haven hallways very tight as were room doorways Last of all the haven restaurant was off, the service was ok but not great like it normally is, maybe due to only 2200 sailing and the timing being off. Food came out very fast but , water, beverages including coffee always seemed to come as the meal was being served, again not a deal breaker. Husband normally is a big casino person but didn't want to go on the scooter as he knew he could not do the hallways. Just an honest review NCL is still my favorite line just not this ship. Cruise was our first in two years and it was fabulous. NCL is an amazing line to travel with

Great to be back cruising by sbarney8

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

I was very glad to be back to cruising and the crew seemed to be also. It was very relaxing. As always, there are places to go to be quiet or places to be in the middle of the fray.

Good but can be better by chicago62

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

Ok but not spectacular. Need more ports where activities are within walking distance. Roatan has small shopping area,Costa Maya doest let you use their lounge chairs if you don't order drink even if you purchase stuff at stores. Harvest Caye is spectacular and line should do overnight stay there or go twice during cruise. Activities after 11pm for those of us that are older are nonexistent

Excellent Cruise! by lindam22627

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

The cruise was great fun. There were plenty of activities on board and lots of places to explore. We enjoyed the game shows in the strium and the shows in the theater. The dining was exceptional. The crew on the Joy were wonderful and very attentive.

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.

Amazing cruise! by philyard

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

This was an amazing cruise. The staff was excellent, always friendly and helpful. The dining room food could use some more variety and some more regular places to eat. The shows and activities were great for our family!

I had a great time… the only downside is that i traveled for my bday ( 3/30) and had plans for Costa Maya… because I wasn’t able to get off the ship ( for safety reasons). I asked for some sort of compensation or dinner credit and received nothing. Sad! by shon0330

Great family vacation by malisacasey924

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

It was a fun family vacation. We made the most out of the issues onboard with no splash academy, and the weather. It was a bit rocky all week. The kids said they’d go again and It beat snow that we were getting at home hands down.

Overcrowded, Late arrival and missed ports by CarlBish

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

I guess with NCL the days of all inclusive sailing is over, we spent over $1K in addition to the initial cost, and really did not do much on the ship. Basic things like water, internet service, games all come with a steep upcharge. Be careful what you are getting into.
