We decided to try the newest and biggest ship of NCL the Escape out of Miami. We arrived at the terminal in our designated time slot around 11am and had to wait almost 1.5 hrs before we were able to get on board. It was very apparent in ... Read more

We chose this cruise because of three things, price, Origination port(Miami), and ports to be visited(We love the Virgin Islands). We had not traveled on NCL for sometime, we had been traveling on Royal Caribbean, We were impressed, and ... Read more

Never have been on Norwegian thought we would love it. Everything was great except for the dining. 3 hours and bad service is enough to turn you off. Staff at dinner had no personality, they seemed to be none caring. I will commit on the ... Read more

Loved my previous cruise on the Getaway. I was so looking forward to this cruise but found much lacking. It took 1 hour and 20 minutes of standing in line to get on the ship. We arrived at around 1 pm. Almost 1 hour was spent ... Read more

I wanted to cruise on the Getaway and the Transatlantic offered a lot for me, 10 sea days which I love and a sister ship to the Breakaway that I love too! I am familiar with the ship itself, the restaurants and all of the entertainment ... Read more

The trip was to Cuba, a chance to see it now that it has been opened up and before it becomes Cancun. Cuba was amazing, the journey, not so much. NCL was once a standard the other cruise lines in that class need to rise to. Now they ... Read more

We went on this cruise just so we could see Havana and Great Stirrup Cay. The ship was clean and our cabin was also clean and comfortable. The bath curtain rings were broken and the wall where it meets the floor was cracked/dirty, but ... Read more

We had been looking for a reasonably priced cruise to Cuba, and this was it! Overall the trip exceeded our expectations. Even though the Sky is one of NCL's older ships, it is now our favorite. It was never crowded, plenty of places to ... Read more

This was my first cruise and overall it was a great experience. For the most part, there were no issues getting on and off the ship at the ports, although there was a 45 minute delay at Harvest Caye, apparently due to clearance issues at ... Read more

We always cruised with royal Caribbean but did the haven on Norwegian the last two cruises. This ship had horrible entertainment and almost no activities of interest. The main pool area is so small that if I weren't in the haven we would ... Read more

I am a Carnival cruise line girl at heart so when my sweetie asked me to go on a NCL cruise with him, I was very hesitant. All the way leading up to the cruise I was not excited at all. Once entering the ship my mouth dropped, the decor of ... Read more

Love free-style cruising. Best ship entertainment was the Dueling Piano's, comedians along with the Company Men. Did not care for the Brat Pack and several left during performance including us. Food was good, really enjoyed the salad ... Read more

After two Carnival cruises in 2015 and 2016 we decided to give Norwegian a try. My wife selected the Western Caribbean because it went to Roatan, Belize and two stops in Mexico from Miami. Driving to the port from South Beach, where we ... Read more

First time cruising on NCL. Have cruised on Carnival, Royal Caribbean and Celebrity before. Choose this cruise for the drink package and newer ship. Embankment was easy and waited about a half hour to board the ship. The ship is very nice! ... Read more

This was our 2nd time in 6 months on the Escape and truly enjoyed the cruise. Food: If you plan to eat at the Garden Café, make sure you take a walk around the entire area before you decide what to eat or you'll need more than ... Read more
