Staff is wonderful lots of activities, however some are a little spendy. As is with most ships, the casino takes up too much space and is in the middle of the ship.Its very smoky, which smells up the decks above and below. Should be in ... Read more

This was my first NCL cruise and as with most things in life there are Pros and Cons. My first disappointment came with their Price Drop policy. We booked over a year in advance and the price for our balcony cabin dropped around $200 ... Read more

I must start off by saying that I am a pretty avid cruiser as well as an enthusiast of this form of travel, this was my 15th, so any thoughts that I am being negative because I "have no experience" are quite invalid. The process ... Read more

The Escape is a beautiful new ship with great amenities. The water slides and sports activities are the best we have ever seen on any cruise ship. The ship is crowded and finding a space to lay in the sun and relax is a bit of a problem. ... Read more

I chose the Escape because we had such a great time on the Jewel last summer. Plus it is only 9 months old. The Escape felt much less luxurious than the Jewel though. The good - comfy balcony room with great pillow selection. (My son ... Read more

I would love to give the Escape a more positive review as the service was outstanding. For a new ship, the design is simply horrid. You can not walk through the main atrium area on 3 floors without being subjected to the awful smell of ... Read more

This was our first cruise on NCL and won't be our last! We loved NCL! The ship was beautiful, the food was delicious and you can't beat the Unlimited Drink Package. We were fortunate enough to stay in a Haven Suite and had full access ... Read more
