I have a NCL booked for JUNE leaving out of NY and Carnival in August leaving out of NY. What cruise line is the best? After reading the reviews I am beining to believe that I shouldn't have booked with NCL their seems to be a list of unhappy cruisers.Please give me your personal responses. NEED TO KNOW ITS 7DAYS.
Stop me if you've heard this, but it really depends on what YOU want out of your cruise. I found the shows on NCL to be first rate. I really liked the burgers by the pool. It meant you didn't have to get dressed, lose your seat and go find lunch. The only cruise I did was on the Spirit, so the newer ships can only have more and better amenities.If the ports ae good and you like the convience of leaving from NYC, relax and look forward to your trip.
In September you can write a review and compare the two.
My husband and I just sailed to Bermuda on 4/18 on the NCL Dawn and had a wonderful time. We had a moped accident on our first day in Bermuda which kind of stunk but other than that, we had a wonderful time on the ship. The shows were great on the Dawn...food was good and in abudant supply and waitstaff and our room stewards were wonderful. Have a great time...we did!
We just finished our 6th NCL cruise 5/1/10 and we have two on another line as well. On the cruise we met a lady with over 160 days on HAL, this was her first full NCL cruise (she had a 2 day to no where cruise). She didn't want to cruise NCL because of some of the reviews she read, after the cruise she just loved it and plans on doing more cruises with NCL, she even picked up some future cruise deposits while on board and is sorry she didn't try NCL before. She has a thread out there with a day by day post of the cruise. As someone else said there is not a bad cruise out there. You don't judge a book so please don't judge a cruise line by what by what you read. NCL has not given me a reason to go elsewhere just reasons to stay. For years I wouldn't cruise HAL because I didn't like the color of their ships, then I did and how wrong I was, they are a great cruise line as well. I feel sure you will like NCL. I will be waiting to hear your review of your two cruises.
