Norwegian Sky is a great ship: old & outdated - yes, but having been a Hawaiian ship refurbished and re-assigned to the Caribbean it has a much different character than the newer NCL ships. The staff was friendly, & the food was ... Read more

I'd taken 4 cruises on Royal Carib in a previous lifetime, so I wanted to mix things up. I enjoyed sailing out of New Orleans on RC, and this NCL cruise fit the bill. I'd book an oceanview room, but when the upsell for family suite came ... Read more

We chose this cruise due to the ship's age and the look and feel of videos and photos of the ship. It surpassed our expectations by far. The ship was beautiful, clean, functional, well designed, and easy to move around in. The seating ... Read more

We picked this cruise based on the itinerary and price. We flew into Miami the day before and enjoyed a dinner near out hotel that evening. Embarkation was a little bit of a mess. We asked multiple people the same question and got as many ... Read more

I'll preface this review by saying that I have been on Disney, Royal Caribbean, Holland America, MSC and Carnival cruises before and while they all may have had a few issues they were all great cruises and I was never excited to get off ... Read more

Simply cannot believe the cost of everything from $327 Internet Access for the cruise to $399 Ultimate Rome DAY trip EACH! $15 corkage if you have the audacity to open a bottle of your own wine. (Still far cheaper than buying on ship). ... Read more

Food, service, people all great! Casino is a bit tight with payouts.... The staff was excellent, toga party a bit different. Wish we were made more aware of all the onboard activities in advance. Had everything book pre-cruise so we missed ... Read more

We had a great time on the Escape! Service was amazing, cabin was great (we had a mini-suite with balcony), and food was outstanding! We had the upgraded dining, which I would highly recommend. There was always a "yes" answer to ... 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

The cruise was recommended by another NCL ship person. This ship was designed differently from other NCL ships. Someone on the ship said it was made in France and was the only NCL ship from there. If you want any bathroom privacy this is ... Read more

We had a great time in all the ports on this cruise and liked the size of this ship and all the different dining options. The food was satisfactory, but the deserts were a little lacking except for Cagney's. The steaks and sides were ... Read more

This was our second cruise with Norwegian (and second total). We chose it for the length, price and because we had never been to either of the ports (Ocho Rios, Jamaica and Key West, FL). Embarkation was terrible. Port of Miami ... Read more
