For months I have been reading good to excellent reviews of the Norway. Now all of a sudden I have heard nothing good about this ship. Has anyone just completed their cruise and can give us an update: crew, condition of ship, food etc. Am sailing on 12/2 and booked after reading glowing reviews. Now the same people are bombarding the different cruise boards with negative comments. Any positve coments out there?
I can only tell you of our experience, but it was a nightmare! Room was filthy and had broken furniture. Noise from overhead all night. Contacted security, no help from them. Rude waiters on open dining nights. Hotel manager was very rude to us, nothing he could help us with. Food awful and the overall attitude of the staff was quite unhelpful . they must have hated this ship as much as we did. We were so excited to go, went with an open mind, but will never go NCL ever again!
We were on board in June and had a great time. My review is posted on this site. We did not find the staff rude and our cabin was in great shape. The Norway was the cover story in the last Cruise Travel magazine. It was an excellent article and had some great pictures of the cabins on board. The author addressed the difference in the cabins and a good travel agent will be able to advise you on picking the best cabin for you.
The public rooms were in good shape and the food was also very good, especially in the alternative dining room.
I agree with Beth, there are no bad cruises, just bad cruisers.
My husband , myself and our two kids are wonderful cruisers. However, when we are in a room under the pool with noise all the time, horrible odors, broken elevators, and a staff so unhelpful when you asked the slightest question, I think we have reason to complain. We made the best of our situation of course, loved the islands, but to spend all that money and not get what was represented to us in the brochures and by the NCL reps is misrepresentation. I am glad to know that some of you enjoyed the Norway, but for the 4 of us The Norway was definitely not as we had been told! For this reason we have contacted NCL. Some of our problems I will not even get into on this message board because it was totally unbelievable on how they were handeled. Let me just say that it was a nightmare!
I, too, am scheduled for the 12/2 sailing on the Norway. I've read mixed reviews from a number of sources.Overall, most everything I've come across has been positive. Please let me know if you hear anything specific.
P.S. Perhaps my new husband and I will see you at sea.
