Of all the cruises we have taken with Norwegian this was our least favorite experience. The ship standards seem to not be on par with the rest of the fleet, this could possibly be related to the COVID-19 pandemic but it just felt off.

Book early and take advantage of selecting a cabin close to the elevators.


Mar 21, 2020

Make reservations for any show you want to attend in the social. Enjoy your trip after all this virus stuff is finally over!

Book speciality dinners and shows early. It’s a ticket system- everything needs a ticket, even if it’s free. So much for freestyle cruising.

Free at Sea vs Sail Away. I think I might do Sail Away next time and add a small wifi package and dining package. The $50 excursion per port is only on one person in the stateroom. The NCL branded excursions are way overpriced. Thing is, for the longer duration excursions/short stay ports, it’s still something to consider because you don’t want to miss your ship, especially if your passports are on-board.

Comfortable walking shoes, prebook your shows and meals far out from your cruise.

Do book your specialty dining and shows before you are on the cruise - usually 90 days or so before departure.

Just enjoy and dont sweat the small stuff!

Eat at Teppanyaki! Best restaurant on the ship.


Mar 10, 2020

Don't go on Norwegian Joy out of L. A.


Mar 07, 2020

Book excursions and entertainment in advance via the NCL website.


Mar 04, 2020

Get a mid ship cabin up high, which we requested but were supposedly "upgraded" to lower deck aft. Make all dining and entertainment reservations as soon as you board the ship.


Mar 04, 2020

Be prepared to endure long lines and waits.

Enjoy every minute of your trip. I would do it again in a minute it was so good.
