Crew was outstanding. While I do drink, I find that a cocktail or glass on wine while traveling is my limit. Thus, I did not take Norwegian up on their drink package and saved a bundle. Food was good, but not equal to that I've...More

We have been on our share of cruises and this was our fourth with Norwegian. By far, this was the most dated of ships and probably smallest compared to others we've sailed in the Mediterranean and Alaska. It reaffirmed what I've been thinking, that we...More

So if you get the alcohol drink package just a warning that when you are docked in Boston or Bermuda they do charge you drink tax on each drink you order. We were surprised to see this when we got our final bill at the...More

The largest area of the city, Downtown is rich with
historical and iconic sites in Boston. Stroll through
one of Boston’s most famous green spaces, the Boston
Public Gardens, check out and make way for duckling
statues, picnic under a beautiful tree overlooking the
pond, and walk over the iconic footbridge where,
during summer time, you will catch a swan boat toting
children and eager tourists through the pond. Have
