The main reason I picked the cruise was that by booking a suite, we will be Platinum Latitude Rewards on our Nov 2017 Panama Canal cruise. Not sure why it is important to me but it is, so I did some checking to see if we could make the ... Read more

This cruise is a fun, low-hassle, low-cost way to visit Havana. You could do it do it more cheaply by flying there directly and staying in a private home, but then you'd miss out on the good food and great party atmosphere on the ship. I'm ... Read more

This cruise was chosen because we really wanted to visit Cuba (just two 30's Females that travel cruises together). We flew into Miami a day early and stayed at the Intercontinental Miami the night before we cruised. It was a quick and ... Read more

The ship is older but it is lovely. The staff was very helpful and extremely friendly. The embarkation and disembarkation were both relatively easy. More waiting arriving in Havana and going through their passport control. Havana was ... Read more

We have been on many cruises and the Escape does not measure up to other ships. The size of the ship is impressive, but the food quality was very poor and the dinning room service was extremely slow. Each night our meals took between 2.5 ... Read more

This was a cruise of firsts for us. We generally don't do suites, we don't go to much onboard entertainment/shows, we usually hang on the main deck quite a bit and we are generally not the most brand loyal cruisers (we're split pretty ... Read more

It was a last minute thing and we had never cruised with NCL before so we decided to give it a try. The service was excellent. The food was great. I have a wheat allergy and they were able to accommodate meal options for me. I am very ... Read more

I have been on several cruises on different cruise lines and decided to try Norwegian. What a good choice!! We went to Cuba on the Sky which is an older and smaller ship in the fleet. I had read some of the reviews and while MOST were good ... Read more

I should start this review by stating that I have cruised on Royal Caribbean and Carnival but do most of my cruising with Viking. That being said, I am used to a much older crowd, so I did not enjoy the company on my cruise. ... Read more

I'd like to say first that I like cruising. I went on a Carnival Cruise the first time. Norwegian Sky was our second cruise ship and it did not disappoint. The staff and crew for this cruise was great. I'm always impressed by cruise ships ... Read more

We celebrated our 45th anniversary by going on a cruise on the Norwegian Escape to Honduras, Belize & Mexico. Since we have gone on about 6 other cruises on Norwegian, we are considered gold status and received a bottle of sparkling ... Read more

The smoke from the Casino (Deck 7) was horrible! It encompassed the entire inside of Deck #7 and parts of Decks #6 & #8 via the open Atrium. To make matters worse, my family's emergency station was the Casino (smoke city)! Outside ... Read more

We are not "cruise people" and took the cruise mostly to have some family time and to see the ports of call in Roatan, Belize and Costa Maya. We were surprised by how much we enjoyed the overall experience. The ship was lovely ... Read more

Recommended highly, from a friend. This cruise and ship lacks virtually everything important with respect to cruising. It's not relaxing: There is no possible way to sit by the TINY main pool. they designed the pool areas so poorly ... Read more

We chose this cruise lines because we are Wyndham owners and it was given to us. We did upgrade to balcony and we were so happy we did. To sit on your own balcony and take in the beauty was great. Watched the tv show that had Karen about ... Read more

An excellent opportunity to visit Cuba for a those wanting an almost effortless way to get there on a well maintained older ship with excellent service. Sadly though the food was disappointing in both the buffets and dining room. With the ... Read more

We really enjoyed seeing Havana. The Cuban people were quite friendly towards Americans. The city was old and need of repair, but otherwise clean and friendly. I wonder if what we saw was limited or orchestrated by the Cuban government, ... Read more

Ship: Love the ship, we have cruised on the Epic and other cruise lines larger ships but we really like the Sky. You can't get lost but it is big enough to not feel cramped. Embarkation and debarkation were the best we've ever had. We ... Read more

So glad to have cruised on NCL Sky to Cuba and Great Stirrup Cay this past week. Embarkation was a breeze. Arrived at port at 11:00 and was on the ship "lunching" in Crossings by 11:20 (amazing). Paid NCL for our Cuban Visas that ... Read more

Unfavorable: To much money for a weekend. Be aware of onboard credits(they don't honor in the ship). Be aware of double charge in mini bar. Rooms not clean and ready, I find separate beds when we got in to the cabin, I had to ... Read more
