We picked this cruise because the timing was right. We knew the weather would be pleasant, but more importantly, we wanted to see the ship Escape. We weren't disappointed... the ship is a destination in itself. The ship is huge and ... Read more

Did Norwegian Gem 8 years ago out of NYC and loved it. Chose this one due to perfect date for us and locations and prior NCL experience. BIGGEST COMPLAINT-Norwegian booked the entire Ship ESCAPE to a corporation, so they offered our ... Read more

Our NCL cruise started off well. Embarkation was smooth and efficient. We found the Norwegian Sky public areas clean but showing signs of wear. It appears like it’s time for a dry dock refresh. Our oceanview cabin was mostly as ... Read more

Chose this as last minute cruise with another couple. We have a Florida home and just wanted a short getaway. 4 nights worked out fine. This cruise included all alcoholic drinks. Expected lower shelf liquors and beers but was very ... Read more

I could've given this a 3 star for average; however, I look at these types of reviews as a reflection of the staff and the ship in general. With that being said...here we go! Check in at Miami was uneventful, the lines moved fairly ... Read more

We booked the Sky about 8 days prior to the cruise - we got a great deal and we were looking for a short getaway. Booked an Interior Room for $159 pp - after taxes/gratuities/port fees it came to about $386 pp. Not bad when you realize ... Read more

Embarkation on the Getaway was rather lengthy, until my roommate noted that I was a gold member/didn't realize that and there was a very short line for those folks. Keep your eyes peeled for your status as it will save you easily 45 ... Read more

Overall this was a good cruise.. I've already made a deposit to take a cruise on Norweigian Escape next year. Still there were several things that could have made it a bad cruise, but none did. One thing is that the theater is at the ... Read more

What a great experience! Getting on and off the ship was effortless and just one hint get to know your deck plans before you get on because it was very confusing when you first step foot on the ship. Especially if you want to get to any ... Read more

I noted several negative changes since my previous NCL cruises. First, the massive ship means the crowds are bigger, both on the ship and import. The most desirable dining spots fill up quickly. Shows book quickly. The ship seems ... Read more

After fighting the effects of Hurricane Matthew at our home for 2 weeks, this getaway was just what we needed to calm our nerves. We were initially concerned about the crowds and lines on a mega ship of this size vs others we've sailed on, ... Read more

We wanted to go on a week long cruise to celebrate my birthday and relax. The ship was very nice and the entertainment, restaurants, and staff were all excellent. For a large ship with over 4,000 cruisers, you never had to wait in long ... Read more

Our recap: Food - Best of any of the 6 NCL cruises we've done. I do agree the menu in the main dining rooms were pretty weak, which is why I upgraded to Surf & Turf the one night we ate there, and glad I did. Service in O'Sheehan's ... Read more
