The Norwegian Sky was awesome. It was all inclusive on alcohol so that was a huge savings. It is freestyle dining so there are no assigned dinner reservations. It is a very casual experience. They do have specialty restaurants you can dine ... Read more

This was our first cruise and overall Id say it was pretty awesome! We ate at 2 of the specialty restaurants, the steakhouse as well as the Italian one and both were good. The buffet food was just so-so, typical buffet food , but the main ... Read more

There was some apprehension on both my and my wife's part before we boarded this ship because of some of the reviews we read. But not only did we not experience anything close to some of the horrors people described, we were actually ... Read more

I choose this cruise for a college graduation gift for a family member. We booked two cabins and were limited on the cruises available out of Ft Lauderdale/Miami area for the specific time of interest so due to the constraints we sailed ... Read more

This was our first time cruising with Norwegian, so I wasn't really sure what to expect. When we first arrived at port we were a little underwhelmed, though it is more the doing of Miami's port area rather than the cruise line. Once on ... Read more

The drinks on the ship were of poor quality. The mixers for liquor drinks were poor quality. The juices on the ship were watered down, they were along the lines of flavored water. The food put out on the buffet was disgusting. It was very ... Read more

I've cruised with Holland America, Carnival, and Royal Caribbean but this itinerary was the best so I thought I'd give Norwegian a shot. Extremely overpriced for what you get. The food is nothing special and the entertainment was ... Read more

After a 3 night cruise on the Disney Magic and 4 nights on RC's Enchantment of the Seas, we decided to try one of the "mega" ships with Norwegian. Many of the things that I am rating lower are mostly because of the comparisons ... Read more

Pros - LeBristo is excellent, ship sailed extremely smoothly thru the ocean, shows were excellent. Cons - Bands & Music were over the top loud. The White Hot Party (now called Neon Party) is for kids (facepaints, glow sticks, ... Read more

I have to say having sailed the Norwegian Pearl last February I was super excited to get on the getaway. We booked a balcony room over a year in advance because we were so happy with the pearl. I think the getaway cruise was a slight let ... Read more

This was my very FIRST cruise! So needless to say I was full of anxiety especially after reading all the negative reviews. I was really afraid that it was going to be so crowded on the ship that we couldn't do anything. IT WASNT! Embarking ... Read more

We chose the Norwegian Escape because our first choice, Royal Caribbean, was canceled. I feel like the escape was greedy in terms of charging for every little thing (including soda and water). All the restaurants served the same thing but ... Read more

I have been on NCL once before. I enjoy the free style dining options and relaxed dress code. The Escape if a beautiful vessel. Upon entering on level 6, you could still smell the newness of the ship. The level of design and decor is ... Read more

This is our 13th cruise and third one on NCL. I was excited to finally book a cruise on a new ship for the firs time. I won't be booking a cruise on this ship ever again. Why? There is only one small pool for the majority of passengers. ... Read more

We loved our first cruise with Norwegian enough to book 2 more while on the ship. We enjoyed a balcony room, which allowed us to spend relax with an incredible view and the sound of the water every night before bed. There was plenty of ... Read more

What we found on this cruise was a very large ship that was well designed. We learned it's really only very large because of the added cabins, not because they added a lot to the ship. Overall, the ship was very nice with a lot of ... Read more

Really enjoyed our trip on the NCL escape! I would highly recommend. The food and beverage (with beverage package purchased) that was included was very nice and equivalent to an upscale restaurant. The ship was great and exceeded our ... Read more
