0 Stars. Negative stars, really. I’m sure Norwegian doesn’t care that I had a bad time. Just one customer lost over thousands that board happily every day. But, I want to leave a review anyway. Maybe one customer will listen and second guess NCL. Just came back from Norwegian Escape heading up New England and Canada. I did not enjoy the experience one bit and I let Alvin the cruise director and I assume the Captain or an Officer know upon exit (as they were standing there). I get it, Hurricane Dorian messed things up and when my family arrived at the Terminal in NYC, tons of people were there and the staff may have been overwhelmed. But that doesn’t excuse the misinformation and the attitude staff members were giving myself and others. Let’s start off with those who booked directly with NCL and were told via phone calls and text messages to not come to the Terminal until 4pm, meanwhile apparently people who did not book through NCL were never told there was a delay and arrived at the Terminal much earlier than 4pm. Not an issue, except these people who arrived before 4pm received embarkation numbers in the single digits or teens while those who listened dutifully to NCL received numbers in the high 30s or not at all. So, how is that fair? When I entered the terminal, no one told me I had to find this mysterious person who had embarkation boarding numbers but I did find the snotty employee who asked me why I needed 6 health cards (I don’t know? Because I have 6 people in my family?) Second, when we finally got processed and boarded the ship there was zero traffic flow control. Everyone entered in deck 7 and flooded both the aft and forward elevators. The elevators were always full for whatever reason, when the doors opened, it was full. Eventually one staff member arrived and while I was first in line for the elevator, the staff member ushered others in, leaving me with two suit cases and a baby carriage (no baby, as my wife walked with the baby the 7 flights up to our room after ten minutes of waiting). Finally, disembarkation. You’re supposed to claim your color for an orderly disembarkation the night before . On this day, green was for disembarkation prior to 8am, orange 8:15-8:45, then other colors for later disembarkation and luggage removal. Well, no one is checking tags, so everyone is running amuck and trying to flee the ship, which can you guess? Leads to ridiculous wait “lines” at the elevators. I use the word “line” loosely as people were just on top of one another. And, while the down button was pressed, every single elevator headed down was already packed when the doors opened in 14, leading people now to go up, just to go down, leading to even more packed elevators. We waited for 10 minutes and realized we’d never get down. So my 69 year old father grabbed his own luggage and carried it 7 flights. While I lugged my luggage down 7 flights. No order, no traffic control. A straight mess. If NCL is known for their “free style” cruises and “free style” is supposed to be chaotic and disorganized, then you’ve found your ship and company! But it’s not my cup of tea. One final thought on the elevators from hell. Their AI system needs a reworking. If you want all the elevators at the bank to work, you have to press the down or up buttons in the starboard and port side, one button won’t light them all up. But I’ve also personally watched as 5 minutes passed with no elevator stopping on my floor despite me pressing the down button (on other occasions). In fact, I saw the elevator come to 14, light up, make a noise, but sail past my floor to 16. Anyways, heed my warnings or not, up to you. But I’m sure Alvin, the Captain and NCL won’t care as they already pocketed my money. Read Less

The ordeal started in port. The boat was six hours late to dock due to tropical storm Dorian...Ok, not much can be done about that except, maybe a heads up from NCL. Too much to ask for I guess. This trip was booked by a cancer foundation as a “wish” for my son who is battling leukemia. To console everyone for the late arrival of the boat, they offered a free bag of chips and a bottle of water. We decided to get out and walk around the city. After six hours of waiting, we were finally able to board the ship. After boarding the ship, we were told that we could not access our cabins because they were still cleaning them and they didn’t anticipate them being finished for another hour and a half. Again, okay, we’ll just try and find a place to dine.....of course, EVERYONE has the same idea which made some halls impassable and getting an elevator almost impossible (my child uses a wheel chair to get around). We finally get to a dining area and find out that if you don’t buy a drink package, a cup of soda is $3 per cup. I expected it to be a little inflated but goodness (I’ll chalk that one up to my own ignorance). So, we finally leave port and head out to sea at about 10pm. First night in the books and all seems well. Next day, we all awake and lounge in the cabin for a while and decide to get brunch, by this time breakfast is over. We head to the complementary taste restaurant and order. My son gets the shrimp pasta with red sauce (another round of 3$ sodas). We take my son and his brother up to the teen lounge and let them “lounge” while I go back to the room to fill out paperwork in anticipation of Canada, when I get the call that my kid isn’t feeling well and has been vomiting. We get him back to the room and try to use some of him medications brought from home to see if that would do the trick. Unfortunately, he was still vomiting and using the bathroom. In fear of dehydration, we take him to the medical floor. They give him IV fluids and insist on going thru their base clinic in Cleveland who instructs them to give him an antibiotic we’ve told them several times he is allergic to. My wife makes them call his on call dr (via Satellite phone) to direct them on exactly how to treat him bc technically once he developed the 102 fever they wanted him in a hospital asap but they keep him overnight. The next morning we are ferried off the boat to the post hospital for observation. The ship calls and instructs us to come get our baggage and disembark because they don’t believe he should be on the boat. All the while, we are in Bar Harbor, Maine and basically have to figure out how to get home only to receive multiple notifications that they’ve charged and MAXED OUT our credit card for their medical services and the 8 cups of soda to the tune of $8,000. I will NEVER take another NCL cruise again. I expected better! Beware, the shrimp and pasta with red sauce is a doozy! Read Less

Friends and family had nothing but praise for this cruise line. Unfortunately the embarkment was 45 min off and disembarking was a hectic cluster as the cruise line did not follow their own policy. As we did obtain their green banding and waited for our call as told...when our call came we found the whole ship and passengers were left in an unruly manner. Causing mass confusion. Which makes one wonder what what would happen in the event of an emergency. Our cabin was not cleaned to the standard we had expected with dust and hair found sporadically around the room. When returning to our cabin after many hours we had to ask or forgo cleaning of our room on many days and fill our towels ourselves. In all fairness our dining was 5 star. Entertainment and activities were in abundance. It did take multiple calls and 3 days to get water for my husbands cpap. Bermuda itself is a beautiful island but the excursions, for the cost, was not actually worth the money. Read Less
