We love the Escape. Everything about it. It is huge and you can't do everything on that ship in 7 days. We unfortunately forgot where the meet & greet was being held so we missed it. I was determined to get on early. I would rather ... Read more

We scheduled our flight to arrive in Miami the day before our cruise - in general a good precaution in case of a flight delay that on a same day flight could cause you to miss the boat. In our case, it was a necessity since we were flying ... Read more

We had a great time. This was our first NCL cruise. Loved the thermal suite in the spa - best decision of the cruise! The only thing that disappointed us was the service on this ship. It wasn't bad; it just wasn't personable. For ... Read more

The Getaway is definitely a ship worth booking. My main reason in booking this western caribbean cruise (Miami, Roatan, Belize, Costa Maya, and Cozumel was the price, and the fact that it has the studios for solo travelers. However, NCL ... Read more
