Went to relax. Note that library/game room is very tiny! Much smaller than any other ship I have been one. Usually there are two rooms, but this is only one and room for only 4 small card tables. Smoke in casino bothersome to ... Read more

We really enjoy freestyle cruising. There is less to pack, which means less schlepping of luggage. The food was very good, and we didn't find that the buffet was any more crowded than any other ship we've been on. Our room was lovely with ... Read more

Before our cruise on the Escape, we had only cruised 3 previous times on Royal Caribbean (1x Liberty of the Seas, 2x Oasis). On our Oasis cruises (2015&2016) we were fortunate enough to stay in a Crown Loft Suite, which we absolutely ... Read more

We always wanted to try the Haven and it was worth every penny. From the time you arrive at the ship, to the time we disembarked ,we felt very special. The service, including private Haven Restaurant, bar area and concierge and butler ... Read more

First the ship is huge. This also means plenty to experience. The daily activity's will keep anyone of all ages happy. The only big crowds seem to be the elevators. We had an inside cabin number 9437 fwd. The room is more than enough ... Read more

After trying multiple cruise lines I have now taken 7 cruises on Norwegian, this was my first on the Escape. As always, Norwegian seems a cut above most cruise lines. The service is always excellent and the stewards are amazing. We even ... Read more

We have been on lots of cruises-we really enjoyed the Escape. We went on Norwegian about 20 years ago and the ship was kind of ratty so we did not return until this cruise. What a difference, the ship was great, food was great and we ... Read more

After reading how awesome the haven experience is on NCL we decided to book a cruise and see for ourselves. We wanted to see if it was worth the literally 5 1/2 times the price of the regular suites. We went on the Escape leaving Miami on ... Read more

The NCL Escape has many excellent features but is not for the seasoned cruiser (older folks). It is essentially Carnival on steroids. We are veterans of 14 cruises. If you want to be left alone by the crew who are there to help you, then ... Read more

We chose this as a quick escape from Winter and this was the perfect 4-day Getaway. The boat was amazing and very clean, modern, up-to-date. Our room was probably the best room we've ever had on any cruise. It was small, but very nice and ... Read more

This is 4th cruise for me. One each on Celebrity, Carnival, Princess and now NCL. Embarkation was fine. If you arrive too early, you get to sit in a room with a bunch of other people, but who cares, you arrived early. Inside cabin 5195 was ... Read more

In 2016 we had been on a Thomson cruise and felt we needed to try a bigger better ship. We thought the embarkation was quite chaotic, disembarking worked much better. Our cabin & bathroom were small but adequate. We were on deck 5 ... Read more
