I chose this Cruise because I needed Four Points to achieve Platinum Status. This Cruise went to Cuba. I was on the Breakaway one day before I boarded the sky. The Breakaway put a hold on a lot of money, boarding the sky, the money was still under a hold. I could not spend any money on the sky. Guest Services was not helpful, they refused to ask NCL corporate to send a settlement statement to my credit card to lift the hold. I settled my account in cash before I left the Breakaway so there was no need for a hold. After emailing my credit card that is all that needed to be done and guest services on the sky refused to help me, to the point that I was in tears several times. I am a casino VIP and would have spent a few thousand more dollars on the sky had I had access to my money. With that being said, the casino manager was fabulous and despite not having access to a few thousand more dollars to spend in the casino, he made my cruise feel a little more special. Cabin 8064, was conveniently located right by an elevator. There is a huge exhaust problem in the room. I woke up from every nap and night sleep with a headache oh, sometimes I found it difficult to fall asleep due to the smell in the air. I had brought a travel fan and that helped the little but did not get rid of the smell. I could not prop my door open hence I was directly by the elevator and there was a lot of traffic. I did not go to any shows, I only dined at La Cucina one time and all other dinners were in the dining room called The Crossings. The staff in The Crossings were fabulous. Read Less

short quick cruise. one day in havana, one day at sea, one day at stirrup cay. Havana was GREAT, arranged a third party tour and spent all day in Havana and night at Tropicana. Tropicana show was ok, all in spanish, all the music sounded the same to me. Was about 2 hours, but could have been much shorter for me. Didnt do Stirrup Cay, it rained nearly all day there so we missed it but we did party on the boat more. On board, the boat was full and handled the population very easily. food was ok at the buffet's and better at the main dining rooms. Bars were all good and made for lots of easy drinking. We got the upgraded beverage promo so we had bottles of water and better liquors available. Easy on/easy off...really had no problems at all. Couple we were traveling with had some minor room issues (AC, TV stuff) but it was resolved. Apparently we were supposed to have some classic towel animals in our room every night but we didnt at all. I wasnt too worried about that but others may complain about it. Read Less

This was our first Norwegian Cruise and we have a great time. The ship was refurbished and nice. Cabins still need some minor tweaks but overall it was a great experience. This cruise had an unlimited drinks option which made this a great value. I will certainly cruise Norwegian again very soon. Also, I was not sure how i would feel about the freestyle cruising option but it worked perfectly for travelers like our family. We like the option to do and move at our own schedule. I can't wait to take my kids on a Norwegian cruise to see how much they enjoy it as well. The service was great by the staff on board the ship as well especially in the dining halls. We had great experiences in all the dining facilities. We did not book any shore excursions but we did go ashore and do things at our own pace. I like that option as well. Read Less

My first time taking a cruise and they made it so easy and smooth thru the whole process. The crew were extremely friendly and always someone around to ask questions or assist in anyway. It took us a while to figure out the routine and what was included in our package and what was not but crew were very good about guiding us to the activities. A daily schedule is handed out every morning with a list of times for each event and what is planned for that day if you want to participate. Alcohol included in this trip made it all worth while :) I thought about upgrading to the premium beverage package but honestly its not needed on this boat. The entertainment and the shows they put on are amazing....I recommend seeing a few while on the ship. The host of the games is hilarious. The food was pretty good and seemed like it was always available any time of day. Read Less

Everything on this cruise was so satisfying! We were in a stateroom! It met every expectation ! The staff was so nice and treated us like queens! Definitely a 5star. We will make another reservation in the near future! The food was excellent! We booked three excursions . The staff was very helpful to helping us on and off the ship. We were invited to the Captain’s cocktail party. We had a wonderful time and made amazing friends. The entertainment was so much fun. We tried to do as many of the shows as we could. Our butler and concierge were absolutely wonderful! They took care of any and everything we could have needed. We rented the villa on the private island. It was amazing, the food, the staff and the villa were perfect. We snorkeled and just relaxed doing anything we wanted. This was our first cruise and definitely not our last. Read Less

I decided to take this cruise to see Cuba. I had already been on the Sky before it went into dry dock for a refurb. It was good to see they made some changes, and some I did not like as much. My cabin was clean, but the shower was horrible. It went from ICE cold to BOILING hot all the time while in use. Many areas of the public space have been changed since the refurb. They moved the Piano to the atrium and the old space is now the mojito bar. It has an irish feel to it and does not match what they are attempting to do. The BLISS lounge is much nicer, and more open. This space was tight before refurb. I loved Cuba. The people were awesome, the food was great. I took a day tour of the city and a night tour of the city. Both well worth taking. The guides were great and answered all questions and gave us a good insight of life and how, and why, things are.

This was a sister trip planned to celebrate our college graduation as we both completed our bachelors degree a month apart. It was our first time on a cruise ever and I chose Norwegian based on word of mouth. We had the experience of a lifetime and I would do it all over again if we could. The Norwegian app kept us on our toes as we had something to do every hour of the day. The staff was courteous and so personable. Our hosts kept us laughing and we were always entertained. First time cruise has made me a cruiser for life! I can’t wait to plan my next cruise. I’m usually not one for writing reviews but this one was worthy of my time. The food was great and the drinks were even better. For the first time in a long time my sister and I were able to relax and enjoy our entire trip. Read Less

I bought this cruise as a gift for my boyfriend’s 30th birthday. I thought it would be a perfect little getaway plus the open bar included sealed the deal. We arrived at the boat around noon and the embarkation was a breeze. The next day we were SUPPOSED to be at their private island which was what we were most excited about. We woke up the next morning to the captain saying it was too choppy to go to the private island so we will stay at sea which was a hugeeeee bummer. We understood it was for our safety but they didn’t do much to make up for it on the ship. I’m sorry but if I’m not going to be living it up on a private island with drinks and djs, I want to do more than watch someone carve fruit on a pool deck with no music. We even went up to a staff member to ask them what activities were going on because we were just aimlessly walking around the ship and she even apologized for the lack of activities for a younger crowd. Needless to say, Saturday felt like a waste of a day and we were very disappointed. Luckily, we were finally able to get off the boat to go to Nassau the next day. For the most part the food on the boat was really good and they were very accommodating. If the boys wanted two- three entrees, they were more than welcome to serve. Raymond was our server Sunday and we was amazing!! You can tell he really loves his job and truly cares. The comedian on board was hilarious! The disembarking did not go smoothly on the other hand. The line was forever long and when we finally got to the front they made my boyfriend go to a different line for finances. That line was even longer because only one staff member was dealing with ALL of the people getting redirected there. Honestly I’m not sure if I’ll ever cruise with this line again but I do know I think I’d have a different perception if Saturday went the way it was supposed to. Read Less

Just wanted a quick get away and check off a bucket list for my Husbands birthday. This was a Monday to Friday cruise to Havana. I was prepared not to like the cruise or the line but everything was great. We booked at the last minute and did not get to pick our stateroom but we had an ocean view room on level 4. It was the smallest room and the lowest level we ever had on a cruise but it was fine. Lots of storage, typical small bathroom but very nice and CLEAN. The ship was very well kept, cleanliness was evident. Food was good, the speciality resturarant we tried was the Italian one and it was excellent. Not much to choose from for evening shows but we were there for the relaxation and mostly to see Havana. Our stop in Havana was only one day but it was just wonderful. Yes, lots of the city was in disrepair. The people are poor for the most part. We had the most delightful tour I have ever been on. BLEXIE tours. This was a tour in an old car. Ours was a 57 Chevy. Our Driver Johnny and our Tour Guide, Laura Garcia, were great. Laura gave us a real education on the History of Cuba, the cuban world view, the people, etc. Loved every minute of it. Learned so much. The tour lasted from 10-4 and was just full of sights and sounds. We opted for the driving tour with very little walking and saw so much of the city. The , the bad, the ugly. Gained such an appreciation for what Cuba is really like. We went to lunch in an out of the way place in a nice neighborhood. Try this place if you get a chance, BUENAVENTURA lovely meal , outside dinning. Very local. Highly reccomend the cruise and the Tour. Do your self a favor and book this private tour. Two people plus a driver and a tour guide. Very reasonable pricing. Personal attention. Can't say enough about how great it wasl Read Less

We had the time of our lives!! We (my wife and I) haven't been able to take a couples vacation in 20 years, it was worth the wait. We choose this cruise for 2 reasons the destination was Cuba, how many people can say they went to Cuba and secondly, we needed ship dates to fit our busy schedules, Norwegian met both of our needs. We enjoyed ourselves from the time we stepped on board, our first stop was the food, what can I say, anything you could imagine was available and tasted wonderful! There was such a variety and nothing was bland, you were able to try things you might've never eaten before. Cuba was amazing! Culture, people and food were all explored we didn't leave a stone unturned. We had a shore excursion as well as some exploring on our own. When were on the ship, the entertainment was great! I one the lip sync battle by the way, never thought I would do it but my wife coaxed me into it. WHAT A BLAST!! One of the highlights was Mark (cabin steward) and our service crew, anything we wanted, needed or thought we needed was provided. Bottom line is we have found our annual outing and it will be with Norwegian! Read Less
