As we have enjoyed cruising with NCL for years, we have gained not only Latitude points, but also a savy about ship cleanliness, food quality, show presentations, room stewards, etc. Our most recent trip to the Western Caribbean ... Read more

We chose Norwegian Cruise Lines because of the huge party we saw going on at a specific port to welcome guests back to the ship. We wanted to be a part of that party!!! The embarkation process was 20 minutes from door to ship. We ... Read more

Would have been 4.5 but that isn't an option. NCL has definitely upped it's game. Thankfully, the old NCL is dead and gone. The entire cruise staff was the friendliest and most helpful that we have ever encountered. The cruise ... Read more

Overall, a great experience and I would not hesitate to do it again. Getaway is a beautiful ship. The main indoor atrium is called 678 Ocean Place and this is where you will find a lot of the entertainment as well as the nicer ... Read more

The Getaway was our 3rd cruise this year and by far our favorite!! The service was fantastic and our cabin steward, Rhey made us happy everyday with our adorable towel animals and clean room (balcony room, mid-ship room #14782). We only ... Read more

Lots of options from food to entertainment. The main shows were great, they are really raising the bar on show quality. Our inside cabin 13623, was tucked away in a somewhat unusual inner corridor. Room was on smaller side, but ... Read more

Eight of us took a family cruise. Most everything was good except ship was too large for me, 5000 people, rather have about 2500-3000. Had to sign up for entertainment. Cruise director Scott was phenomenal in helping in this way, very ... Read more

We opted to join our daughter's family for this fun-filled cruise. The Getaway was selected for it's abundance of activities for younger kids. It would not normally be our style of cruising, but we did get to see some new places and it ... Read more

We chose this cruise because wanted to take our 7 month-old baby on a cruise, and my wife expressed interest in visiting the Bahamas, one of the few places she hadn't traveled with her parents. We were interested in having babysitting ... Read more

Getting on and off the ship was ran very smoothly. The ship is huge. We had a balcony room. This room is not large enough for four people. You could put two adults and one child in the room. We got our two kids an inside state room and ... Read more

The Escape is a beautiful new ship. Everything is in great shape. Pool deck was very crowded but pleasantly surprised that the smell of smoke in the atrium was not pronounced like other reviews have stated. Had two rooms- one B6 large ... Read more

I cruise for the first time with NCL after being on Carnival twice previously. The Ship is gorgeous as its pretty new to the sea. The adult pool felt a little small for the size of the ship. The cabins were decent sized. (I had a balcony). ... Read more

I don't get why anyone gives Escape a low rating. Sure, everyone's preferences and experiences vary, but I could not find anything wrong with this cruise. The food was better than ever. Service was superb (there may be a new incentive ... Read more

This is a beautiful ship. Our mini-suite with balcony was perfect. Unfortunately the service on Norwegian was not as good as I have experienced on Carnival or Royal Caribbean. The ANYTIME dining option is disappointing because you never ... Read more
