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

We traveled with three generations ranging in age from 12 to 74. We really liked the Getaway and range of activities that were going on. We did get a little frustrated about all of the extra costs while onboard...they really start to add ... Read more

Arrived to the port at around 12:30, embarkation was smooth and quick and we soon found ourselves in Margaritaville enjoying yummy fish tacos and a couple of cold ones. Love the design of this ship, this is why we keep returning. So ... Read more

Physically, this ship was lovely. Clean, attractive, elevators worked very well. Staterooms were OK, I had an ADA stateroom which was superb. Cabin steward was excellent. Although there was much to do for the children and they were well ... Read more

We enjoyed our cruise but see the Norwegian changes as going down hill. We have taken several (probably 5) Norwegian cruises and they just don't offer the service they use to. This was our first time on a larger ship and I think we ... Read more

Siblings cruise once a year. Drove to Miami and arrived later than we expected. This was a plus since check-in line wasn't too long. Went right up to the buffet and had a tasty lunch. Yes, it was crowded, but we got a table easily. ... Read more

My review is from a fairly new cruiser's point of view. My wife and I have sailed on Royal Caribbean three times and and on Norwegian's Epic. As already mentioned in several posts, the Getaway is a huge ship with plenty of things to do. ... Read more

We are two couples who cruise together once a year. We always have fun and have cruised several different lines. We've been on the NCL Sun and love that ship, but thought we might like to try one of NCLs newer, larger ships. So we ... Read more

I loved this ship and had a wonderful time. My only non-favorable comments are: Some of the bars seemed understaffed. I had a hard time getting a drink on occasion. I was surprised at the changes in pricing for the speciality ... Read more

Freestyle. Norwegian Escape's carefree attitude carries over to its dress code, which basically allows for anything. During the day, it's all casual, with swimsuits, shorts and T-shirts poolside and in ports. At night, there's ... Read more

We are a mature couple looking for warm-weather, not too far, one week getaway. We decided on this cruise purely by way of available dates and itinerary. Wanted to see the Virgin Islands. I understand this is the 5th largest cruise ship ... Read more

Wonderful ship and service. All staff were very friendly...loved the special touch of being greeted every morning in the Garden Cafe with a little song reminding us to washy washy! Our cabin was a great size with plenty of storage ... Read more

My husband has always wanted to traverse the Panama Canal so this was a "bucket list" cruise. Overall, the Jewel is a great ship - easy to navigate, friendly crew, good food, excellent shows and a comfortable cabin. We had ... Read more

This was my first time with Norwegian. Honestly, I was very disappointed with everything, from food to entertainment. For 15 days, we had the same menu in the Garden Café, in specialty dining venues like Chin Chin, Teppanyaki, ... Read more

Going through the canal was great. Having to go clear to Catagena is terrible. The NCL personnel are great. Food was good. Some entertainment was real good some not very good. We were ripped off on some excursions through NCL. We went on ... Read more

This was a really terrific cruise. Spent a few extra days in Miami prior to sailing and went into every port of call. The crew and staff were fantastic. Food was great minus a few small problems. Entertainment was great and we enjoyed ... Read more

Second time on this ship for only two main reasons. After my first cruise on NCL three years ago, I started collecting ship models, neglecting to obtain one of the Sky. After my voyage to Panama Canal on NCL Pearl last October/November, I ... Read more

Ncl is lacking details such as having elevators only at the bow & stern sections of the ship. People were constantly complaining about the distance necessary to walk to/from the elevators. Other ships this size & smaller have 3-4 ... Read more

We embarked out of Miami. That was not a pleasant experience. The fact that NCL was so disorganized and communication was terrible made the first impression of Norwegian a bad one. Once on the ship however, my husband and I were ... Read more
