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.

LOUD! All the music was so loud you could not talk to the person right next to you. by richnsue12

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

Somewhere in the all the travel documents, I read that we were supposed to get a free ride into town in the ports of call. Didn't happen. The open bar was a nice feature, but the free internet was very difficult to log on. Additionally, in the Atrium where almost all of the guest business was transacted, the music or Game Announcers were so loud, we had to shout at the officer behind the desk to be heard. Why was everything so loud?

Great to be back at sea and to be with my NCL family again by channeling

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

Ncl tried very hard to be as safe as the could but people still refused to wear masks even when hey had agreed to wearing them before embarking. Stayed away from most of the big events because of the idiots. All, in all, it was a fantastic holiday cruise with good food and a lot of the celebrations simulcast into the suite. Butler and room steward were among the best I have ever had.

Do not waste time in raffles by gmarino13

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

Everything was great except the raffles. Effy advertise winning a Damond necklace and I never got it. Instead they gave me a cheap chain. Invicta watch raffle winner got an Armani Exchange watch. The art auction this time around only had expensive art in the auction and the raffle prices were lanyards, lol.

Just what we needed! by GPJ

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

After cruising on all of the major cruise lines and taking a few years off from it, we are ready to book our next one! The JOY is an excellent ship. Only thing we would change is more time away.

Fun cruise and great ship by pannellopek

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

We had a wonderful time and were so glad to be back to cruising. We felt comfortable with the Norwegian's efforts to minimize risk of covid outbreaks including testing, vaccination mandates and additional cleaning. We wore our masks while in common spaces and even felt safer. See you next time.

Awesome Cruise by luv317537

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

Because the ship was only at 50% capacity, the ship wasn't crowded at all. No long lines. We were able to find deck chairs and have fun

This was the worse of my 64 cruises. by CRUISEAHOLIC50

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

I heard a lot of complaints about the long distance passengers had to walk from the ship to land in 2 of the 4 ports. NCL should have provided shuttle service as other ships did for their guests.

A mixed bag by setsail2019

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

Our cruise was one of the last ships to leave before all cruises were canceled. Lots of washy washy and necessary safety precautions. The Joy was a mixed bag. Some parts of the trip were enjoyable, while other parts were disappointing (which is to be expected). Overall, I did not fall in “love” with NCL or the Joy.

Last sailing before shutdown by BlakeW300

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

Much needed break from reality. Could have been more enjoyable if more heat/sun on the sea days. But glad to have the break before COVID19 put a pause on the industry.

Not letting NCL screwups ruin a great cruise! by htownyankeejim

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

Despite being locked in or out of our room twice for hours with door issues and toilet stoppage once, Joy is a nice ship. NCL completely failed with travel (last minute flight change) and transportation to & from ship (paid for a lift van for wheelchair which never happened either direction), NCL port and airport personnel clueless!
