Amazing experience! by jessicadburns09

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

Staff was great and there was so many options of things to do I feel like I have to go again just to do all of the things I didn't get a chance to do.

Partially disappointed 😞 by rtgolfergg

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

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.

Overcrowded, Late arrival and missed ports by CarlBish

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

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.

Wonderful! Ready to go again!! by jscable3

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

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.

HORRIBLE by murrensonllc

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

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.

Fun trip by pestopsycho

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

Overall, I would book another cruise with Norwegian but would research the stops before booking. The ship itself and the entertainment and things to do were excellent. It was a very good experience.

Very disappointed with the "Joy" by

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

I am a Saphire NCL cruiser and I was very disappointed in various aspects. The theatre especially. No live band! too small for a full ship. Internet was slow. The shows were not up to par. The comedy club lacked humor. No lobster dinner at the main dining room. The food was fair at best. I would NOT go back on the Joy.

Enjoyable with a few exceptions by vlwilson1107

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

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

Great Cruise by ninab84

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

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.

Really nice Cruise by vhicks

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

It was nice being on a ship and not having to wait for anything. Th ports of call could be better. Roatan was great, but would have preferred to actually go ashore in Belize to the actual country.

Beautiful and relaxing Covid cruise by JumboJem96

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

We were very nervous about not being able to go on the cruise due to Covid but it ended up working out. We even got an upgrade with a low bid to the Haven. We had a great time, the food was great, the capacity was under 50% so we had plenty of space. Would cruise again

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

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?

First and Last by brownidman

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

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.

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

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

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

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.
