Overall I had a wonderful first trip to Europe, first week-long cruise, and first time sailing with Norwegian Cruise Line. They really impressed me with the food and service especially, and I can't wait to sail with them again.

Really said above - very disappointing as the passengers were as a rule rude and refused to followed posted rules and thecrew refused to enforce them.

Honeymoon Cruise

Verified Review

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple
My wife and I took this cruise for our honeymoon, and we had an overall good experience. I had been to Europe previously but my wife had never been. The specialty food on board the ship was great, but the complimentary food left something to be desired. I wish we had more time to explore at each port (expect 30 minutes taken for both arrival and departure out of the overall time listed for each port). The excursions are great for inexperienced travelers, but if you're more experienced I would highly recommend exploring the destinations on your own.

Summer Trip with Kids

The trip was great experience, the cruise ship was somewhat aged vessel in need of upgrades. The service and staff were great, the entertainment was super; our kids and us adults very much enjoyed it. The places visited were awesome but would have preferred a longer layover in Dubrovnic.

Cruised with Friends

Verified Review

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple
We traveled as a couple with another couple who are good friends of ours. We had an amazing time, we just wished there were longer port times to get things in--especially in Dubrovnik, Croatia. Again, the ship is beautiful, but we kept saying to ourselves that it would have been more relaxing if it had been an adults only ship, or that the ship was larger and had more spaces that allowed for kids and families to enjoy along with those of us adults who wanted some space to ourselves. We have kids of our own, but will usually take them on cruises that are larger so there is more for them to do. Other than that, the ship is beautiful and we still had a lovely time.

Enjoy everything the ship has to offer. The pub is a great place to catch a game on tv with a beer.

We really enjoyed O'Sheehan's Irish Pub. Had breakfast, lunch and late nite snacks there multiple times. Not reall what I would call an Irish pub though.

you might want to avoid the haven suite area on deck 12. they are at the stern and top of the ship........I understand those guests really had a rough ride through the hurricane. I cant understand why the highest price suites are in the worst ship position. I always prefer mid ships, middle decks.
