I wondered how the service would be considering this cruise was an "all-inclusive" bar. Well, I was extremely impressed with the service, accessibility and general relaxed feel on this cruise. What a refreshing experience to open ... Read more

The cruise was really nice. We had a great time. The open bar is prefect to have drinks all the time. We hung out in the pool every afternoon and the wait staff would keep coming to fill our orders. Since the drinks are included certain ... Read more

This review has two parts. The second part will explain why I gave this cruise an overall terrible rating. To begin, if you have read other reviews, you will see that our cruise experience was very similar to many others that have posted ... Read more

Wonderful time with my husband and adult children. We loved the specialty dining and had a wonderful time at the art auctions. The ship and its crew was extremely friendly and the drink package is so worth it. Norwegian definitely is not ... Read more

We just disembarked from Norwegian's Escape Sunday, July 31st. I am going to try help out a little with expectations. This is a brand new ship. The ship is beautifully designed, easy to navigate once you board. Embarkation is easy. ... Read more

The ship itself is pretty. Food in the specialty restaurants was very good, and though we tried every single one, I still prefer the steakhouse on Carnival. Also not enough showers at the upper decks if you are not close to a pool. ... Read more

We had a great vacation on the Norwegian Escape! We got to Miami a day early to insure we would not miss our cruise. We stayed at the Hilton Miami Airport for one night. We went to see the Marlins Game and explored the Everglades before ... Read more

I'm not a cruiser. I'm a travel, food, and entertainment snob. So when my sisters and mom forced me to do this cruise, I was reluctant. I was also pleasantly surprised at how much I enjoyed myself. And I attribute that to: some of ... Read more

This was a family birthday celebration. The cruise went well. Beautiful weather. No motion sickness or Rocky boat feeling. The Norwegian Sky is a nice ship. Dining was mediocre to me. The buffet had plenty of selection of foods, but were ... Read more

After reading the reviews of this ship I was a little nervous about this trip. I was expecting a lot of rowdy drunk people and an old worn out ship. I was pleasently surprised. This was one of the best cruises my wife and I have gone on. ... Read more

We normally cruise on Royal Caribbean but could not find a cruise that fit our limited time window. The NCL Sky fit the window and being all inclusive was a bonus. We did not care about what ports were visited, we just wanted a relaxing ... Read more

We sailed Norwegian Last year and enjoyed it tremendously! This year was even better! We became members of the Vibe Beach Bar and it made the cruise for us. We wanted a quiet, gentle cruise and the Vibe Beach Bar with Jeffrey, Ricky, ... Read more

We chose this cruise because of the NCL reputation and the ports and scheduling. We had been on the Sky last year and while we did not have a great experience were encouraged to try a larger and newer ship. In many ways we were quite ... Read more

Vacation Cruise was for a group of 6 couples, celebrating multiple birthdays. Cruise was far from all inclusive as our bill at the end of the week was almost $700 and this was with the beverage package thrown into the original package ... Read more

We have cruised with Carnival, RCI, and Norwegian. This was our second NCL cruise; the first was on the Breakaway and the 2nd was the Escape. The ship is amazing. We are not big drinkers, but for our cruise we have the option of ... Read more

I've been on 15-20 cruises over the years, but this was my first with Norwegian since 1992. I will never cruise with Norwegian again. Pros- The Norwegian Escape was new, so it was clean and pretty. The ropes course was really cool (but ... Read more
