We did an NCL cruise aboard the Epic a few years ago also in the Western Caribbean and had a blast. Maybe my expectations were too high because of that, but I was disappointed this time. Arriving at the port, the gentleman handling our ... Read more

Wanted to try ncl. Was told they were good. Found drinks expensive, service slow, dinner service slow in main rooms and overall, really expensive ship. They did give us great service at dinner after getting mad one night because it ... Read more

We just got back yesterday and are still feeling that cruise high! The whole trip was amazing. We got on board early to get passes for the Vibe and spent all day Sunday in port on the ship. We used this time to explore and meet some ... Read more

We sailed on the Getaway a couple of years ago and said we'd never do it again...but then some friends booked it and asked us to come along so we did. This experience was identical to the last one. NCL is doing a terrible job by adding ... Read more

Close to Miami during the winter and our offer of a free 3rd person was a good value with a family member visiting. Nice trip and great weather. Stateroom was disappointing, with very tired carpeting, mattress needed replacement, no plug ... Read more

This was our second time on the Getaway - first was October 2015. There have been a few changes since then. - The UBP has had some of the top-shelf liquors taken away (Patron Tequila). This drink package was essentially why we choose ... Read more

Our family of three (H, W, 16 yo son) had a fantastic cruise on the Escape. I will qualify that by saying we were in the Haven, so this likely had a major impact on our cruise. We picked NCL for the price and as teen-friendly. We had ... Read more

Booked this cruise through Casino at Seat so got a decent deal. Will NEVER go on this ship again or any that are this big. Between 2 pools, capacity was 108! This hip has 4200 people aboard! YOU do the math! On Sea days could ... Read more

This was my 4th NCL cruise, second on the Escape. In past years, I stayed in Brickell prior to cruise. That is a fine option. This year, I stayed in Coconut Grove. I was afraid the cab fare to port would be too much but under $30. ... Read more

It was a new ship that we thought had nice options. The 5 o clock some where bar sounded like a nice option but when you have to pay extra for nachos and a hamburger that you can get at the buffet or the pub is kind of poor in my eye. The ... Read more

Great deal with Unlimited beverage and specialty Antares package included and I could not pass up on the deal. The inside stateroom was smaller than other cruise lines but laid out very nice with a wand in the shower which made that ... Read more

Most of my cruises have been on Royal Caribbean. I had never cruised on Norwegian and a friend recommended it to me. I decided to try one of their newest and largest ships. I have cruised on RC Oasis and Allure and never felt as though ... Read more

Brother selected this cruise as a family/friends one. Sixteen of us set sail. Had the best time with all on board. Deck 19 bar by the Vibe had the best bartenders. Ship was beautiful. Although I didn't care for the two straight days ... Read more

We have sailed on the Epic and Star previously and thought to give the Escape a try. Not again. We rarely complain as we can understand that this is a large cruise ship but the experience as a whole left a very sour taste in our mouths. ... Read more

Norwegian Escape My lady (Linda) and I (Scott) are a couple in their 60’s and late 50’s. She is retired, and I am still working. We chose the Escape because it visited Tortola, an island we had not visited before, as ... Read more

This was my first sailing aboard an NCL ship. We selected the Escape nearly two years ago when it was first put on sale, and opted for it as a multi-generational vessel with outstanding entertainment. I was putting together our ... Read more

We decided to give Norwegian a try after being long-time Royal Caribbean cruisers. We went on the Escape as a family trip with two other couples. We were not impressed at all. The ship was ridiculously over-crowded. You couldn't go ... Read more

I have wanted to sail the full Panama Canal cruise for years. Now that we are retired, my husband and I could do it! We flew to Miami two days before departure, so we could have some fun in Miami. We cruised the Bay of Biscayne-a great ... Read more

This was our first NCL cruise. We have previously only sailed DCL. While we can afford those cruises, we no longer feel the value is there. This cruise was about $2,000 less than our last DCL cruise on the Fantasy in the same room type at ... Read more

I always wanted to do a full transit of the Panama Canal. The Jewel was sailing on the dates of my 45 anniversary, so that is why we picked NCL Jewel. I usually sail with Royal and Carnival. The Jewel built in 2004 and went into dry ... Read more

Even if you know the history, have seen the documentaries and understand the engineering, a full passage of the Panama Canal is a MUST for any lover of history, science or travel. The senior crew members were very assessable and were ... Read more
