We cruised on the Norwegian Escape in March of 2017. We would recommend it for sure. I would also recommend the all drink package and three day restaurant package. Everything was top notch in every way. There are so many wonderful ... Read more

The double occupancy capacity is 4,266 and this sailing had 5,050 passengers (with even more expected the following week). The pool is completely inadequate to handle the demand and is no bigger than that of ships with half the ... Read more

We used JR shuttle Service from Fort Lauderdale airport to our hotel. They were reasonable and right on time. We also used them to return to Fort Lauderdale from the cruise port. Within 5 minutes of my phone call they were there to ... Read more

We chose NCL for the third time because our kids love the kids club and the free-style dining works well for us. We chose the Escape for the water slides and ropes course on-board, along with the itinerary. Pros: Food in buffet was ... Read more

This was our first cruise. I will say we made some rookie mistakes that added pre cruise stress. We didn't get insurance. We flew in the same day. We booked our return flight a little earlier than recommended. Ultimately that all didn't ... Read more

This was our first ever cruise, so I do not have anything to compare it with, but we were very happy with our choice. The ship is massive, but very clean and contemporary/new and we found it easy to navigate once we figured it out. We ... Read more

I've been on a number of NCL's smaller ships, including the Pearl, Sun and Sky and was anxious about our trip on the Escape (there were 2 of us) having read previous reviews. Those concerns were unfounded though. The Ship: The ship ... Read more

Cruise was a good experience with some problems. The biggest was at the specialty steak restaurant where we had the poorest service I ever had in a restaurant. It took 3 hours to dine there. It took well over an hour to serve our ... Read more

Norwegian offers "Freestyle" Cruising. Smaller ships, and a more intimate experience. The food is excellent, the staff warm and friendly and the amenities and shore excursions are wonderful. Easy on and off for excursions. Lots ... Read more

This is our first time on NCL on the 11 day Panama Canal cruise. Ship: Larger than most ships we cruise on. We always book a ‘mini suite’ regardless of the cruise line or the size of the ship. We enjoyed the larger ... Read more

Originally booked an inside cabin but got an up sell to a balcony two days before sailing. So glad we did. The bow was too crowded but we could see the locks from our starboard balcony if we looked over the railing. Especially with ... Read more

I chose this sailing because the price was right for two longtime friends to spend a few days away from life's daily callings. I booked directly with NCL for March 20 sailing and return on March 24, 2017. What the booking representative ... Read more

We flew into Miami a night early. There was a bit of a snafu with the Pullman hotel, but NCL sorted it out right quick and we were soon ready to explore. We had enough time to grab some last minute items at the nearby CVS and some Cuban ... Read more

Stay away. The Garden Cafe is not like other ships. Very limited. Do not waste money on the spa. People are laughing, yelling and the staff does nothing to stop it. Their Harvest Cay island is not like the one in the Bahamas. You pay ... Read more

We took our first cruise to the Western Caribbean. The food was average at best. I found that the food wasn't very warm at any of the restaurants we ate at. We tried the buffet, which had a great variety as well as The Tropicana, ... Read more

Dining was average. Good meals but seafood limited unless you go specialty. The menu had a number of more "traditional " or American Fare items. Perhaps that is in demand but on a cruise more unique selections might be more ... Read more
