My husband and I were in a group of 12,including 4 other couples and 2 teens. We chose Norwegian, for the first time,mainly for the value when we compared a similar Royal Caribbean cruise. The balcony cabin was approx. $1000 cheaper and ... Read more

Our prior cruises were on smaller NCL ships and were thoroughly enjoyable. What we liked on this cruise: Exceptional dining available, in the Taste, Savor, and The Manhattan. And an over-the-top dining experience at Cagney's. For ... Read more

I chose the cruise after reading up on the ship and what was offered, liked the fact that the ship was brought into service about 18 months ago and was a newer ship. Was looking at another cruise line but the dress code on the other line ... Read more

We have always cruised with Princess and enjoyed their ships very much!. Loved trying the Norwegian Escape, but I had/have a couple of complaints; lots of entertainment and games were held in the Atrium instead of smaller venues, such as ... Read more

After much consideration we booked our first non-dcl cruise on the Escape. The price was right, hubby was encouraged by the District brewhouse and DS17 by the all-night wing availability. We were determined to go in with open minds. We ... Read more

After sailing on many cruises, we took our very good friends on their first cruise -- and NCL hit a home run for all four of us. We selected the Norwegian Escape because it has so much to offer both to veteran cruisers and newbies. We ... Read more

March 4th, 2017 Note: there are no bad cruises, they are what you make them and we did enjoy ourselves. A travel agent booked this cruise for one of the people going in our group & we all ended up going on it. Pros: ... Read more

My fiance and I went on this cruise for our spring break and it was just us two which made it easy to get into restaurants and such. We flew into Miami the night before so that we would have time for any hiccups that might occur. This was ... Read more

While my wife and I usually sail with Princess, her sisters planned this getaway so we joined them (10 of us) for this wonderful 'escape' to the warmer weather. The flights into FLL were much cheaper from Toronto so we flew in the Friday ... Read more

First, I must admit that I am partial to freestyle cruising. I love the freedom to do what you want, when you want, dress-up or not; thus, points are auto-added just for that. Getting aboard was quick and easy. We were escorted to ... Read more

The boat was nicely (& newly) remodeled and the ports were amazing. The room steward (Ivana) was amazingly quick, thorough and kind. The rest of the staff that I came into contact with was slightly rude (I didn't hold it against them ... Read more

Getting on the ship and leaving the ship were very quick and easy. Our cabin - oceanview with picture window and large enough and had adequate storage. The shower with sliding glass door was a good size. There were too few public ... Read more

We got this cruise as a promotion for a timeshare purchase we made last year. We had our choice between Carnival, Royal Caribbean and Norwegian, and since we have sailed both Carnival and Royal Caribbean many times, we figured we'd try ... Read more

This was my 2nd cruise with Norwegian (first was on the Jewel) and it was as wonderful as I remembered it was! The Jewel class ships are perfect! I love that passenger list is smaller. My best friend and I decided to take a cruise and ... Read more

We have been NCL Latitudes Platinum level members for years. The benefits offered for this level contribute greatly to our reason for booking with NCL instead of with competing lines. On this cruise, we were amazed to see that our benefits ... Read more

This was a last minute cruise. Wanted to try NCL as we've cruised before. Sad to say, we wont be on this again. Knew cabin would be small going in but the bed was atrocious. Two cots wrapped in a layer of foam put into mattress protector, ... Read more

I just returned from a wonderful week aboard the Getaway. My 78 year old mother and I stayed in one of the forward Penthouse Haven suites. The first time I booked a Haven suite and was told we would have a butler, I did not know what the ... Read more

I chose this cruise for the itinerary and to try a different cruise line. While the itineraries were decent (Harvest Cay was over crowded and dissappionting), the ship was a teeming mass of humanity with insufficient design and amenities ... Read more

Was disappointed with the food selection, noise level, and rudeness of the other travelers. I felt I was nickeled and dimed for every thing. Our stateroom was well taken care of. Very pleasant Stewart. I also liked the massage I ... Read more

This was a friend's 60th birthday celebration so I did not actually choose this cruise but I have been on many NCL cruises so I thought it would be a good trip. There were 7 of us in the group and we had a good time together celebrating ... Read more

First let me start with the positive… The ship is very clean and I generally felt very safe! My cabin steward was invisible since I never actually saw them but the room was always tidied up with fresh ice, towels and towels ... Read more

We did an NCL cruise aboard the Epic a few years ago also in the Western Caribbean and had a blast. Maybe my expectations were too high because of that, but I was disappointed this time. Arriving at the port, the gentleman handling our ... Read more

Wanted to try ncl. Was told they were good. Found drinks expensive, service slow, dinner service slow in main rooms and overall, really expensive ship. They did give us great service at dinner after getting mad one night because it ... Read more

We just got back yesterday and are still feeling that cruise high! The whole trip was amazing. We got on board early to get passes for the Vibe and spent all day Sunday in port on the ship. We used this time to explore and meet some ... Read more

We sailed on the Getaway a couple of years ago and said we'd never do it again...but then some friends booked it and asked us to come along so we did. This experience was identical to the last one. NCL is doing a terrible job by adding ... Read more
