Cruising Isn’t Just For Old People was founded in September 2016 when I returned from my first Cunard cruise with lots to tell the world. Since then I have been focusing on building a young cruisers community and engaging guest bloggers from around the world. I am extremely proud of the community that we have created of likeminded, young (ish) cruisers who aim to inform and inspire. others.

Heya, I’m Emma.

    I have not done an NCL or Cunard cruise, so far it has been Carnival, RCi and P & O, but NCL is one of those I am keen to try

    We have done 2 Carnival cruises, Carnival Glory and Carnival Legend and the standard was superb.

    We have also done 2 cruises on the Independence of the Seas and whilst she is a magnificent ship, a bit too big for my liking despite all the facilities on board.

    Unfortunately my one cruise on the P & O Azura was a bit of a disaster (no fault of the ship I hasten to add) as I was taken ill during the trip and so never really got the chance to explore.

    For me though, Carnival have never failed to disappoint on their fun ships and I understand that they are returning to the UK next summer.

      You definitely should try NCL, if you like Carnival I imagine that you’d like NCL. I’ve never cruised on the independence of the seas but I don’t think that she is too much bigger than some of the newest NCL ships. Maybe you would prefer one of the smaller NCL ships. I would whole heartedly recommend the Norwegian Spirit, such a lovely elegant spacious ship.

      I didn’t know that Carnival was coming to the UK! I would love to try them.

      • Carnival return would be fab.. they’re skipping 2017 – Vista must not have done too well :/ They’re party ships so hope they’ll come back… but if US passengers are scared to travel they may wait 🙁

  2. Hi ya!
    I’m an NCL fanatic too! 😉 Escape is my fav ship so far, seems to have the best bars, entertainment etc & staff are awesome! Trying the Getaway in April so will see how that compares!!

      If you like the escape you’ll like the getaway I’m sure! I haven’t been on the escape but I’m told they’re pretty similar, think the escape is just a little bigger 🙂

  3. What a great website you have created! I love your writing style and learning all about your journeys, tips and photos.
    We have been taking our family cruising since the kids were little. We love having the home base cabin while we explore wonderful ports. We are doing pur first family trip on NCL and going to the Western Mediterranean this summer. It is so helpful and enjoyable reading all your cruising experiences.

      Thank you so much for such a lovely comment. You’ve made my day 🙂

      I’m sure you’ll love NCL, I loved them as a child and I still love them now. Have a brilliant time!
