This was our sixth cruise in succession with NCL over Spring break in the eastern Caribbean. Reservation process was ok but nothing special. No benefit to being Latitudes members. Embarkation process is always slick but bags took ... Read more

This is our second cruise. Our first was with Royal Caribbean and we liked it very much. The Escape is beautiful! Love the Waterfront, probably the best part of the ship. The staff is not very friendly and can be very rude at times. The ... Read more

I've cruised on Celebrity Cruise Line a few times with great satisfaction and went out on a limb and chose Norwegian this time due to schedule and timing of sail dates. Overall, I wasn't "wowed" by anything on the ship--yes it's ... Read more

My husband and I were in a group of 12,including 4 other couples and 2 teens. We chose Norwegian, for the first time,mainly for the value when we compared a similar Royal Caribbean cruise. The balcony cabin was approx. $1000 cheaper and ... Read more

Our prior cruises were on smaller NCL ships and were thoroughly enjoyable. What we liked on this cruise: Exceptional dining available, in the Taste, Savor, and The Manhattan. And an over-the-top dining experience at Cagney's. For ... Read more

I chose the cruise after reading up on the ship and what was offered, liked the fact that the ship was brought into service about 18 months ago and was a newer ship. Was looking at another cruise line but the dress code on the other line ... Read more

We have always cruised with Princess and enjoyed their ships very much!. Loved trying the Norwegian Escape, but I had/have a couple of complaints; lots of entertainment and games were held in the Atrium instead of smaller venues, such as ... Read more

After much consideration we booked our first non-dcl cruise on the Escape. The price was right, hubby was encouraged by the District brewhouse and DS17 by the all-night wing availability. We were determined to go in with open minds. We ... Read more

After sailing on many cruises, we took our very good friends on their first cruise -- and NCL hit a home run for all four of us. We selected the Norwegian Escape because it has so much to offer both to veteran cruisers and newbies. We ... Read more

My fiance and I went on this cruise for our spring break and it was just us two which made it easy to get into restaurants and such. We flew into Miami the night before so that we would have time for any hiccups that might occur. This was ... Read more

While my wife and I usually sail with Princess, her sisters planned this getaway so we joined them (10 of us) for this wonderful 'escape' to the warmer weather. The flights into FLL were much cheaper from Toronto so we flew in the Friday ... Read more

First, I must admit that I am partial to freestyle cruising. I love the freedom to do what you want, when you want, dress-up or not; thus, points are auto-added just for that. Getting aboard was quick and easy. We were escorted to ... Read more

Our family of three (H, W, 16 yo son) had a fantastic cruise on the Escape. I will qualify that by saying we were in the Haven, so this likely had a major impact on our cruise. We picked NCL for the price and as teen-friendly. We had ... Read more

This was my 4th NCL cruise, second on the Escape. In past years, I stayed in Brickell prior to cruise. That is a fine option. This year, I stayed in Coconut Grove. I was afraid the cab fare to port would be too much but under $30. ... Read more

It was a new ship that we thought had nice options. The 5 o clock some where bar sounded like a nice option but when you have to pay extra for nachos and a hamburger that you can get at the buffet or the pub is kind of poor in my eye. The ... Read more
