We chose this cruise as it fit into our schedule and believed the cruise would be fun for our 25 year old daughter due to the activities offered. The Escpae is an attractive ship, design-wise but lack any decor that makes it special. The ... Read more

My husband and I wanted to go on a different itinerary away from the Western Caribbean. We chose the Escape April 22-29th cruise. We celebrated our 5th wedding anniversary while on board. The ship is huge, but the itinerary is wonderful ... Read more

My wife and I cruise a lot with more than 20 cruises under our belt. For no particular reason, we had never cruised on NCL before. We had the opportunity to sail on the Escape as part of a travel agent conference we attended. It proved to ... Read more

The embarkation was slow, but steady. They made us wait outside for about 20 minutes before allowing us inside to begin the registration. We waited in a holding area for our boarding group number to be called for about an hour. Once ... Read more

I own a tax accounting firm, and booked this cruise as an after-tax season-cruise. I splurged and booked an aft-facing penthouse suite in The Haven, since this was a cruise heavy on sea days (3) and wanted a nice place to chill. The ... Read more

Embarkation was quick and simple, disembarkation was disorderly, missing communication, and EXTREMELY long! We had one good meal on board. All other meals were were mediocre at best. The same food was served at most meals and wasn't good. ... Read more

SUMMARY: This was a wkend getaway for me and my sister in law. The embarkation was smooth and hardly any line. The disembarkation was organized as well. There was a line in customs but that has nothing to do with the ship. That is the Port ... Read more

We wanted a weekend cruise for a low stress family vacation where it was warm. This was perfect for me, my husband and my mom-in-law. The staff was wonderful to my mother-in-law, who is nearly 88. They made sure she could embark and ... Read more

The Pearl is a nice sized ship and we enjoyed our full transit Panama Canal voyage. The food was good enough that we both gained a lot of weight. If we had used the excellent fitness center perhaps the scales would have been kinder ... Read more

We choose the The Haven on the Pearl, a very excellent choice. All of the crew took excellent care of us, from JonJon, Bencar, Budi and Yahira to the friendly staff in the restaurants. They are all great ambassadors for NCL and should ... Read more

We wanted to travel through the Panama Canal. The consultant that talked to us as we were going through was excellent. We liked the fact that we could view from the big screen in the Atrium, go outside on the 12-14th floors, as well as the ... Read more

We had been looking for a Panama Canal transit cruise for some time and this cruise seemed like a good fit with the various ports of call and ending in Seattle (it was actually a 17 day cruise not a 14 day). We had sailed on NCL many years ... Read more

We had a spa cabin which included access to the thermal spa. We chose it for this reason because we were doing a mother-daughter-grandmother trip and our goal was relaxation. The spa was amazing. Even when the pool deck was packed with ... Read more
