This was our 4th sailing on the Sky and I have to say we were a little disappointed. We've always enjoyed the short weekend trips, and the ability to just get away from everything, but it feels like the ship has gone downhill. The rugs on ... Read more

We have taken this Sky cruise several times. We use it as a weekend getaway from the office. The staff is always very courteous and professional; boarding and disembarking has always been painless. We always use the gourmet ... Read more

We had not been on a cruise for about 13 yrs....3 nights was a little too short. Have been on about 8 cruises so not sure if "cruising" is not the same in general or if a 3 night cruise is not the best way to experience a ... Read more

Our first cruise as a family during the Thanksgiving week exceeded our expectations. If you like a relaxed atmosphere without having to dress in a tux for dinner then this might meet your needs. We had some concerns about the open bar but ... Read more

I travel with my husband and just under 2 year old daughter during thanksgiving week. Embarkation was pretty smooth. We arrived at around 11am and were on the boat in about 1 1/2hrs. I can't entirely say the same about disembarking ... Read more

This was our first cruise so I don't have a lot to compare it to, but as far as expectations go, I thought the Norwegian Getaway had everything you could want. There were enough restaurants on the ship that we didn't have time to try ... Read more

First time on NCL, after Disney and Carnival. Cabin was as expected, everything was working, our cabin steward was great, Gerald worked really hard, one evening I forgot to turn off the "do not disturb " sign, therefore he did ... Read more

This was our 25th cruise, quite a few with Norwegian. There were 7 of us.Just like last year we took it mainly for our grand children,who enjoyed the cruise a lot. Otherwise a big ship and Miami is the worst combination. Positives ; the ... Read more

My husband, 7 year old son, and me picked this cruise because we never sailed with Norwegian, they had the cheapest price to sail to the Virgin Islands, and I was very interested in doing the Escape because it had the largest water park ... Read more

Let me say we were a little apprehensive about going on the big ship having only done small ships in the past and several people told us they preferred the smaller ships but we were so happy we did. The Escape is awesome...we had a ... Read more

We picked this line and ship based on other reviews and the fact Norwegian was including alcohol and specialty dining with the package (and based on other cruises, it ended up saving us about $1,200 in the end). Some of the reviews were ... Read more

Norwegian is not "freestyle" at all! We had problems 2 months before we even went on our cruise. Customer service not helpful or knowledgeable. On board credit was lost because it was all put in one person's name so there is no ... Read more

I wish we could rate them with 4+1/2 stars ! We choose this cruise because of the sailing dates, ports of call and a promotional offer for alcohol package :-) It was the first cruise for my husband (I've cruised twice before). We both ... Read more

The ship was large but only felt crowded at peak times. The ship was very clean with no visible signs of rust or wear. The food was cruise average. The ports were a standard itinerary used by multiple cruise lines, nothing extra ordinary ... Read more

We thoroughly enjoyed our experience on the Norwegian Getaway out of Miami on November 13, 2016 where we traveled to the Western Caribbean. Let's start with the positives and then move onto the negatives. Positives: The Ship is ... Read more

First let me say it did take awhile to embark. Seems everyone comes around noon. If we had waited until 1-2PM it would have been faster. BUT the embark team is employed by the port and has nothing at all to do with NCL. The line always ... Read more

This was our first cruise but certainly won't be the last! We were so impressed with the whole experience. It's all we hoped for and that was accomplished because of the attention to detail by NCL and it's staff and standards of ... Read more

I chose this cruise mostly for the price. I wanted to celebrate my birthday on a cruise with my daughter. I had a fantastic steak dinner at the Cagney Steakhouse for my birthday. I enjoyed the spa each day and the excursion in Jamaica. ... Read more

Wife and I love cruising and always try new ships and/or different concepts. It was my 60th birthday and so decided to give NCL Escape a chance. Bottom line is: there's something for every taste, definitely not boring. We do like sea days ... Read more

This was our sixth NCL cruise, but the first on a big ship. On the plus side, we loved the quality of entertainment that a big ship can provide. We went to two evening shows, one special wine tasting show/lunch and a Motown review in ... Read more

I chose this cruise due to a group of 6 friends choosing it first! Also, this was mom's 75th birthday present cruise. Embarkation went pretty well since I got to enjoy the Gold & Platinum line for the first time. We were dropped ... Read more
