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

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

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

My husband and I have always enjoyed cruising and just being on the boat but NCL Getaway was the worst boat we have ever been on. The Getaway is one of NCL's mega ships and it is ALL about money. The crew is constantly trying to sell ... Read more

Great trip made even better by joining Cruise Critic's roll call and meeting great people at the beginning of a 10 day trip. We were fortunate enough to share our memories with new life long friends. We have been on many NCL cruises as ... Read more

Our boys sent us on this cruise for our 50th Wedding Anniversary. We were first time cruisers but enjoyed every minute of it. Everyone on board the ship bent over backwards to make sure we had no problems. The food in the main dining rooms ... Read more

We booked this cruise because we needed some rest and relaxation. We selected NCL based on the itinerary offered (Cozumel, Roatan, Belize, and Costa Maya) and for the embarkation port (New Orleans). We had cruised previously on the ... Read more

My husband and I have only been on one cruise prior to this and had decided that cruising was not for us, as the experience was less than pleasant. Our children, ages 9 and 10, have begged us to take them on a "big ship", so I ... Read more

The NCL Star is a beautiful ship and big. My husband and I still did not know our way around after a week. The stateroom, a picture window room, was nicer in person than in pictures. Our stateroom attendant, Victorio, kept it clean and ... Read more
