With six cruise ships sailing in Europe – Norwegian Epic, Norwegian Jade, Norwegian Star, Norwegian Spirit, the recently renovated Norwegian Getaway, and for the very first time, Norwegian Pearl – the cruise line offers itineraries to multiple destinations including the Mediterranean; Greek Isles; French, Spanish and Italian Rivieras; and voyages to the Baltic, from various ports throughout the continent.

  1. not sure how they get this award , overpriced ,overcrowded ships . we have cruised with them 12 times within 4 years and they are more focused on the US market and should focus on that , US customers get cruises through NCL for far less than EU customers and we get the oldest ships …(Not that i want the likes of Escape or Breakaway .. we spent 14 days on Breakaway 2 years ago from New York should have been a trip of a lifetime ……………It was Crap.They should Keep the ships in US for the Mini 5 day cruises to Bermuda and keep the real cruises the companies who can deal with them

  2. I have cruised 18 times on NCL and always had great service and food. No problems with noise.

  3. We have cruised with NCL 2x. Barcelona to Miami: the port personnel kept us waiting for 1-1/2 hours on the quay to come with 2 wheel chairs to bring us on board. The dining rooms are so noisy that you cannot talk to the person next to you. The cabin was so small that we had to store the wheel chair on the balcony, in Miami they had us waiting in the bar for over 1 hour to come with 1 wheel chair for my husband. Since we were late getting of the ship they yelled at us when we were looking for our luggage because they had moved it. the second time: Hawaii: they do not have valets and you have to lug your luggage through a “warehouse” to the belt to bring it onto the ship. Also here, the dining rooms were VERY noisy. Unfortunately, my husband got ill and we had to cancel our excursions. At the end of the cruise in Honolulu we were looking in vain for a valet. It is not easy to maneuver a wheel chair and suit cases to the front where we were picked up. Needless to say, that is one of several cruise lines we will NEVER use again. We had always great service on the Royal Caribbean as well as the Princess ships.
