I'm not a cruiser. I'm a travel, food, and entertainment snob. So when my sisters and mom forced me to do this cruise, I was reluctant. I was also pleasantly surprised at how much I enjoyed myself. And I attribute that to: some of ... Read more

We chose this cruise because of the NCL reputation and the ports and scheduling. We had been on the Sky last year and while we did not have a great experience were encouraged to try a larger and newer ship. In many ways we were quite ... Read more

This was our first cruise, as part of our honeymoon. It was simply brilliant from start to finish. We wanted to share our review to maybe help somebody else in our position considering their holiday options. We loved the Norwegian ... Read more

I've been on 15-20 cruises over the years, but this was my first with Norwegian since 1992. I will never cruise with Norwegian again. Pros- The Norwegian Escape was new, so it was clean and pretty. The ropes course was really cool (but ... Read more

We took NCL Escape in July going to St.Thomas, Tortola, and Nassau; my first time, my mom’s second time (she had previously been on Celebrity). We were very disappointed. We had booked our balcony room about a week before on a ... Read more

Getting on and off the ship was excellent. The free style dining was great. Food overall was excellent. The 24/7 Irish Pub was a great bonus, buffett food was above average, and specialty restaurants were amazing. The lines in the ... Read more

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

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
