Freestyling with NCL

Go Carts on the Norwegian Encore
Go Carts on the Norwegian Encore

We are big fans of Norwegian Cruise Lines.

We have sailed on the following ships:

  • Norwegian Encore
  • Norwegian Breakaway
  • Norwegian Escape
  • Norwegian Pearl
  • Norwegian Prima (coming in Oct 2022)

We love their freestyle dining and their entertainment.  The food at their buffet, main dining rooms, & specialty restaurants, is amazing and the service is impeccable.

We are a huge fan of The Choir of Man aboard the Norwegian Encore & the Norwegian Escape.

We have been working with Norwegian Cruise Lines for many years prior to the pandemic.  They have done an excellent job managing their reopening since the Covid-19 voluntary closures.

When we were on board the Norwegian Encore, April was able to ride the go carts.  

It was on a recent sailing (Norwegian Escape in February 2022) that we picked the best excursion I have ever done.  It was not one we thought we would like but the one we had planned to do either filled up or was cancelled and two of our advisors were doing this other one so we decided to join them.  It was Rio Secreto in Mexico.  It is an underground river in a cave.  What an incredible experience we had.  

The guides were amazing and very safety focused.  Even though I have some mobility limitations I was able to do everything in the cave that everyone else could do.  I did have two walking stick poles.  They supply them.  They are made out of pvc pipe so it is safe for the organisms in the cave and for people to use.

Stress Free and Perfect

Reviewed By Christine - Coventry, RI | Traveled to Walt Disney World ~ Florida ~ USA
I consider myself pretty 'seasoned' when it comes to Disney, but April is the BEST. My son had been accepted into the Disney College Program so we decided to make a family trip to get him settled and enjoy the parks. She was amazing coordinating everything. It was an emotional trip as you can imagine, but what made it more so was I had just lost my mother a few days before our departure. I can't thank April enough for making our trip perfect and stress free! ~xo

Invaluable Assistance

Reviewed By KarenMea - Titusville, FL | Traveled to Walt Disney World ~ Florida ~ USA
April was an asset in helping me plan my family’s vacation to Walt Disney World in Florida. He knowledge of the ticketing system for the park enabled us to make make the best use of our time and ride the most rides during our time on the parks. She also arranged our stay at one of the Disney resorts. We might not have gotten a desert there without her.

Amazing Trip!

Reviewed By CatieB - West Bridgewater, MA | Traveled to Walt Disney World ~ Florida ~ USA
April was amazing. I never could have planned my family’s trip on my own. With just a scant two months notice, she created a vacation that was personalized, hit all of our must dos and made amazing memories. I am forever grateful to her for helping my family have a Disney experience we will never forget.

ZERO stress Disney Planning

Reviewed By Tina Camp - Leesburg, NJ | Traveled to Walt Disney World ~ Florida ~ USA
I have called April for last minute trips, while in the parks with questions, for itinerary changes, and she NEVER even sighs. I have met her several times in parks just for a quick hello, how are you doing.

Disney Trip/Universal Studios

Reviewed By Erica - Dracut, MA | Traveled to Universal Orlando ~ Florida ~ USA
April was so detail oriented and made herself available around the clock. We used Coasters and Castles both times we went to Disney and April’s highlighted itinerary kept us on track and not waiting around. She was a pleasure to work with and I would only use April for all things Disney/Universal Studios. There isn’t anything she couldn’t speak on!
