I usually travel on Celebrity with adults and Royal when with my teenage son. I was a little nervous about going on the Escape because of the reviews. Let me first say that the ship is stunning, I had a mini-suite and loved it. Food was ... Read more

The Escape is a lovely ship but was not our cup of tea. We are 69 and 70 years old and both the music and announcements were played ridiculously loud. The ship is better suited for young families. There were also 1,000 children onboard and ... Read more

The ship is beautiful with so much to do for all ages! Crew members told us that it was a busy week for them, but not as busy as it was in March Spring break. The ship never felt over crowded. A little background on us... DW (42), DH ... Read more

We chose this cruise because we were bringing 12-year-old granddaughter with us and wanted to make sure there was plenty for her to do and lots of kids for her to make friends with. We are both retired (64 and 67), and this was our 21st ... Read more

After reading the earlier poor reviews, I wondered if I was on the same ship. The entire cruise was very enjoyable, and the service was excellent and friendly. However, boarding was a horrendous experience and made a very bad initial ... Read more

Overall we had a great relaxing time. We enjoyed the Unlimited Dining Plan, which I believe is no longer sold. Cagneys and Moderno's were our favorites. I learned to ask for little to no pepper on our food since all the meats were ... Read more

I wanted to get to Italy by ship from Miami so we choose NCL Jade April 19, 2016. This is the ugliest ship I have ever been on. It was the old Pride of Hawaii and they never did any renovations. Plastic flowers on the ceiling, dated ... Read more

I chose this cruise as an add on to a 10 day Serenade of the Seas one I'd booked, as I like to make my airfare count! I used Jiffy Jeff to get me from FLL airport to Miami port & he offered great service ($15 shared, $45 alone), ... Read more

Embarkation went very smoothly. We arrived at the terminal about an hour before our reserved time, and that was a good idea. Our cabin was a mid-ship balcony. Others have mentioned the balcony is small, but it was completely adequate for ... Read more

My wife and I have done 20 cruises in the last 5 years, and in many ways the Escape was the best boat we have been on. It isn't perfect - no boat is - but it gets most of the important things right. We spent the next week on the Getaway - ... Read more

We chose the Norwegian Escape because we got - in our opinion - a good deal with Air Canada for an "Air/Cruise Package" and two free perks; and wanted to try a different cruiseline/ship (we are usually on Princess). Overall, we ... Read more

After cruising about 6 cruises with Carnival, we decided to try NCL. First of all, let me say how CLEAN this ship is, they strive to keep it that way by encouraging everyone to wash their hands before eating and they remind you on your ... Read more
