Our kids were on a winter break so we decided to try this cruise line and ship. We have sailed on Carnival, Royal Carribean, and Holland America. This cruise was fantastic. My husband and my teenagers said this was their favorite cruise ... Read more

Just got off of the NCL Escape after a great week. We flew in on the Friday before sailing and stayed at the Intercontinental on Chopin Lane in Miami. Had a harbor view room and got to see our ship from the room Saturday morning. Short ... Read more

This was my first time cruising and I enjoyed the all inclusive meals and drinks. The staff was welcoming when we first arrived. On the first day, we did the blue lagoon beach day and found a spot on the snorkel beach which was relaxing ... Read more

Not a bad deal for a spur of the moment decision. Our room ended up in the rear of the ship which was great. The balcony was a bit more private than the ones on the sides of the ship. Although we have done the Bahamas' thing too many ... Read more

This was the fourth cruise we have taken, and would rate this cruise quite low, in comparison. We had cruised on 3000+ passenger ships, previously, but that should not account for the difference in experience! 1) The ship is not well ... Read more

My sister and I traveled together. No children--we are middle-aged and children are young adults. Embarkation and disembarkation: embarkation went fine--they very quickly went through the numbers before us, and we were on the boat. ... Read more

This was our second cruise with Norwegian and we weren't disappointed! We had previously cruised on the Epic and although very nice, we were much happier on the Getaway. The ship is beautiful with so much to do. Flight into Miami was ... Read more

We traveled with a total of 18 people (4 families=8 adults and 10 kids (ranging in age from 7-12)). Most of us flew from Grand Rapids, MI to Orlando and rented a 15 passenger van to drive to Miami. We got great rates for the van through ... Read more

7th time on the Getaway and have never had a bad time. Awesome every time. The Officers and Staff are the best. Cruised over 50 times on all different lines and sizes of ships. NCL knows how to treat it's cruisers. We had ... Read more

Long Review We booked this cruise last minute. Literally within one week of sailing. We live on the West Coast so it took some fancy footwork to get everything arranged. At first we thought we would try an inside cabin guarantee. It ... Read more

This was our third cruise (my wife's fourth) on NCL, and we are great fans of the freestyle approach that offers flexibility and convenience in dining selections. For us, the larger the ship the better! Not that we enjoy crowds, but we ... Read more

This is a beautiful ship, I have only sailed on RCC previous and so could not help but compare. The embarkation procedure seemed long and we felt like a herd of cattle moving from one area to another and waiting to be boarded. Once boarded ... Read more

At 6th or 7th NCL cruise - usually hit the newest ship in the fleet. The Escape was nice ship. The layout & design was especially nice because I thought it provided a lot of extra, out-of-the-way spaces like the Waterfront seating ... Read more

This cruise on the Escape was only our 2nd cruise. Our first was on the NCL Jewel which is about half the size in passengers as the Escape. The Escape has so many more passengers that you have to make reservations to the entertainment ... Read more

I have been on 5 NCL cruises on the Getaway, Epic and now the Escape. All are beautiful ships with wonderful specialty restaurants and entertainment. I have two main criticisms of the Easter Caribbean Escape cruise that I just completed. ... Read more

Traveled as a Solo with a group. Had solo cabin which was very comfortable. I had more room for my things than if I were sharing a cabin. I loved the changing color lights in the cabin. Shower is a bit tight, it was difficult to bend over. ... Read more

We have been on 7 cruises now, 6 with Norwegian. We chose this one mainly because it was the newest ship and the destinations particularly St Thomas and Tortolla were to our liking. The shore excursions were fantastic, Sonny Liston tours ... Read more

This is my 6th NCL cruise and 3rd on the Sky. I also have sailed on Holland America and Carnival. So, as you can see I'm "all over the place" when it comes to cruising. I've pretty much settled in on cruising NCL as their ... Read more

Norwegian Sky is a great ship: old & outdated - yes, but having been a Hawaiian ship refurbished and re-assigned to the Caribbean it has a much different character than the newer NCL ships. The staff was friendly, & the food was ... Read more

This was our 3rd cruise with NCL, we've never cruised with any other cruise line because we tried NCL and loved them right away. For my review I would have preferred to give 3 1/2 stars but I still think the cruise is above average. A lot ... Read more

Norwegian is nice but not for us. We sailed the Norwegian Getaway out of Miami. We had an enjoyable week with friends but would not choose or recommend Norwegian unless you were sailing just to spend money and eat. The line has a buzz ... Read more
