We chose this cruise because it was a low price. We should have known that you get what you pay for. This was our first cruise on Norwegian. The service was poor at best, inconsistant, and sanitary questionable. The waiters and ... Read more

This was our second time on the Getaway. We enjoy the free unstructured dinner times and more casual dress at NCL. My husband and I found the food to be delicious. Much better than our first cruise. The food at the Specialty Restaurants ... Read more

We just returned from our 2nd cruise on the Escape and had a great time! Unique for this ship is the fun water-slide Aqua Racer where you ride on a tube. (Didn't try the drop slides, so will leave those for others to tell you about.) ... Read more

When I first read the reviews about the Escape before we booked, I was a bit skeptical. Now that I've be on her, in my humble opinion, those bad reviews were dead wrong. The Escape is an absolutely fabulous ship. It was just myself and my ... Read more
