What a beautiful ship the Escape is! I've been cruising since 1987 (on the incomparable SS Norway), and this was one of my very best cruises. My husband and I are in our 60s (but the *new* 60s-- where 60 is the new 40, you know?), and ... Read more

My wife and I are from Miami, so we really wanted to try the Getaway since it is decorated with a Miami/South Beach theme. Well... we are glad we took this trip because we truly enjoyed it! Ship: Amazing! It's clean, beautiful ... Read more

Overall we had a great relaxing time. We enjoyed the Unlimited Dining Plan, which I believe is no longer sold. Cagneys and Moderno's were our favorites. I learned to ask for little to no pepper on our food since all the meats were ... Read more

My family and I chose this cruise because we had tried RCL and Carnival, both very happy with them. Also we wanted to see what this big and brand new ship was all about. The waterslides were AWESOME. The drink package was great. The two ... Read more

We left out of NYC which was good for us but the lines to check in where terrible. They combined Haven with CAS which meant quite a few people on the line It took over 30 minutes to check in and we were there at 10:30am. Finally on the ... Read more

First the bad: We missed Great Stirrup Cay. The good: Missing Great Stirrup Cay means we have to sail again soon to go there! This was a totally amazing cruise. We flew into Miami the day before our cruise and caught the shuttle from ... Read more

This was my first cruise, so I have nothing to rate this against except my level of expectation and satisfaction, which both were met. We found the boarding process to be so easy and the whole process took about 45 minutes. Our room was ... Read more

Our cruise on the Dawn was one of our best vacations. The 7 days went by so fast starting with the embarkation. We carried our own luggage cutting out any wait time. Once aboard, Finding our cabin for the first time was a challenge, but ... Read more

We arrived in New Orleans a couple days before the cruise so we could explore a little. We did the city tour which was very informative & a good overview of the highlights of the city. Our driver was a native & lived in an area ... Read more

The ship was very nice and elegant with the exception of the pool area which is small and in need of restoration (the ship is going into dry dock in May so they will probably fancy it up then). Four of us shared a mini suite with balcony ... Read more

I heard that this was a good ship, bigger, with a lot of activities. It was very expensive if you were not in a group. Activities cost extra like bikes in exercise room. Only dirty hot tubs with grey foam floating in then. In one the vents ... Read more

Felt we needed a short getaway, and a trip to Belize City before NCL stops going there. We have been on 10 cruises in 4 years. This was toward the bottom. Usually ran across friendly crew. Some were fairly new to ship. Even the officers. ... Read more

My wife and I have done 20 cruises in the last 5 years, and in many ways the Escape was the best boat we have been on. It isn't perfect - no boat is - but it gets most of the important things right. We spent the next week on the Getaway - ... Read more

We chose the Norwegian Escape because we got - in our opinion - a good deal with Air Canada for an "Air/Cruise Package" and two free perks; and wanted to try a different cruiseline/ship (we are usually on Princess). Overall, we ... Read more

Having just returned from a cruise on Norwegian Spirit, I have to say what a very pleasant surprise I had. I had read many reviews that had made me doubt my choice, mostly about the age and condition of the ship. I am happy to say, that ... Read more

After cruising about 6 cruises with Carnival, we decided to try NCL. First of all, let me say how CLEAN this ship is, they strive to keep it that way by encouraging everyone to wash their hands before eating and they remind you on your ... Read more
