We were excited to cruise on the new Norwegian Escape for Christmas week. It's a huge ship with 4000+ passengers and of course lots of kids and extended families. Be prepared to find crowds at popular venues. Many shows require ... Read more

We have cruised on the Pearl several times and we have always enjoyed the smaller ship "feel" of it. The Pearl did not fail us this Christmas. And, as always, we attribute the success of NCL to the staff so I'll start there. ... Read more

This was our third cruise aboard the Norwegian Pearl. We chose this itinerary because it sailed into ports we have never visited. The ports we hit were Oranjestad, Aruba, Cartagena, Columbia, the Panama Canal and Colon, Panama, and ... Read more

I love Norwegian! I traveled with my aunt who is disabled and I was also on crutches. I love the ship, the people, the ports, the length of cruise! We were given a free upgrade to balcony, but this moved us from mid-ship to all the way ... Read more

We planned to get to the ship earlier to avoid crowds, but due to delays with the airlines the night before our arrival was around noon. Despite this, our embarkation was smooth and the lines moved well, putting us on the ship in about 45 ... Read more

I chose this cruise to try out the studio cabin, and I liked the itinerary. The cruise took place over Christmas, and the ship tried to make it as festive as possible, but it still felt as though something was missing, and I did not feel ... Read more

We recently arrived home after a wonderful cruise with NCL on the Escape. We are in our mid 40s with a 9 year old son. We enjoy NCL given the activities and overall feel of the ship. Always something to do! We also took my parents ... Read more

First off, this is the largest ship our family has sailed on so far and the first one out of Miami. The first day I was concerned because it is HUGE and the ship was at capacity. We sailed the week of December 17th. After the first ... Read more

Prior to this cruise, we had cruised on the NCL Epic and the NCL Star. Both cruises were just OK. Not bad, but noticeably worse than Carnival or Royal Caribbean. About 2 years ago, we came across a deal that we could not resist. Kids ... Read more

Disclaimer: I've been on RCL Oasis twice and the Allure once. All out of Ft Lauderdale. If I can help it, I will never leave out of Miami again, but if I have to, I will pay the $20 per day to park at the pier. We used ParkSafe and it ... Read more

The dates worked for our family, so this is the one we chose. We were a family of 4, and had two adjoining balcony cabins, which works well as we had two bathrooms. We chose a later embarkation as we were hanging around in Miami for the ... Read more

First time on Norwegian. I believe the included price for drinks( Sky) was the best part of the cruise. We didn't see any ship port tours that looked good. We chose a private taxi tour on Nassau and were happy with that. All the ... Read more

We chose this cruise because we wanted to get away for a few days and because it was reasonably priced and included the open bar. It was a good time with lots of music and dancing! The ship shows its age but it was very smooth and you ... Read more
