I chose the Getaway to try out a big newer ship. I am usually a loyal Royal Caribbean customer but I did not like the ports or the time in ports on the bigger newer RC ships. This cruise had two days at sea and one day at each, Roatan, ... Read more

I chose this ship because last year I won the Free Cruise bingo raffle while on the Jewel sailing Alaska. The fine print stated we had to use the certificate within a year and it was good for a Carribean cruise only. My husband and I ... Read more

Had an amazing time on the Norwegian Escape. It is fair to say this was the best cruise ship we have been on. We can't say best cruise, that still belongs to the Pride of America and only because it was Hawaii. There is something for ... Read more

This was our first cruise ever and oh my, the escape didn't disappoint. We planned a family reunion and thought the best thing to do was to actually go on a cruise. As a group of 10 (and me being the organizer of the event), i was a bit ... Read more

I eagerly anticipated this cruise on the new Norwegian Escape and it didn't disappoint. The embarkation and disembarkation was smooth and easy. The Escape is beautifully appointed, and it appeared more open and inviting than I have ... Read more

We came in to port the night before to avoid any airline hangups. We were staying in the Haven so check-in was a breeze. The overall experience was outstanding. We took advantage of the dining and drink plans and were glad we did. No ... Read more

Our family of five has been on at least 15 Caribbean cruises and we all agree this was one the the best! We arrived at the port around 11:30 am and were on board within 30 minutes. We did not have meals at any specialty restaurants ... Read more

Another fine sailing with Norwegian Cruise Lines aboard their newest liner, the Norwegian Escape. Arrived at the port of Miami @ 10 am, and was on the ship enjoying a cocktail by noon. Rooms weren't quite ready (as expected) so made our ... Read more

Good cruise. Very small balcony - but good enough. Very narrow hallways - but good enough. Food was great. Second night at sea was seafood at the buffet - don't miss it, the shrimp was great and plentiful. The Tropicana dining room ... Read more

The 7 Day Western Caribbean Cruise from Norwegian was my first ever cruise. I traveled with my husband and several of my in-laws. My husband actually paid for the cruise and all the excursions we had, so I'm not exactly familiar with how ... Read more

Not a big fan of Norwegian Cruise Lines. This is our second cruise with Norwegian. The Getaway is a fairly new and absolutely beautiful ship, but as with my previous experience with Norwegian, the service is horrendous (with exception of ... Read more

We had a large group of 11 people cruising so that could have impacted our experience, but some things just weren't up to par even if you were cruising with a smaller family. Embarkation in Miami was fine. It seemed well organized, but ... Read more

We chose this ship because it is a newer, larger ship, and we enjoy the free style dining experience. We enjoyed the Taste main dining room, O'Sheehan's was also great, The Teppanyaki and Ocean Blue specialty restaurants were excellent. ... Read more

Well, I have wanted to do the Western Caribbean trip for a while. Got on the Getaway, but ended up with mixed feelings. Room safety: Don't assume or take it for granted that your belongings are safe, even inside the safe. It is a big ... Read more

Aside from the Norwegian Getaway, I've been on five other cruises. 1 Disney, 3 Royal Caribbean, 1 Carnival. This cruise line definitely ranks up there with the Royal Caribbean however I think I would still rank Royal Caribbean in front ... Read more

Just fabulous!!!!!! My husband and I have been on 5 different cruise lines and for some reason, I was hesitant to try NCL. I booked the cruise on The Getaway and the minute we got on board I knew it would be amazing. Embarkation ... Read more

First time on Norwegian and certainly the last. We strayed from RCCL and learned out lesson. We had a lovely time as ANY cruise is a good cruise; however, NCL can't hold a candle to RCCL!! The food was mediocre at best, the choices in the ... Read more

We chose the Norwegian Escape because it is a new ship with lots to do for our grandchildren, ages 2 to 21. We usually cruise with Celebrity or Royal Caribbean but we thought this ship had lots to offer our varied ages. We were ... Read more

Staff is wonderful lots of activities, however some are a little spendy. As is with most ships, the casino takes up too much space and is in the middle of the ship.Its very smoky, which smells up the decks above and below. Should be in ... Read more

This was my first NCL cruise and as with most things in life there are Pros and Cons. My first disappointment came with their Price Drop policy. We booked over a year in advance and the price for our balcony cabin dropped around $200 ... Read more

I must start off by saying that I am a pretty avid cruiser as well as an enthusiast of this form of travel, this was my 15th, so any thoughts that I am being negative because I "have no experience" are quite invalid. The process ... Read more
