We are a couple from the Mid-west (age 53 & 62), no kids, retired and Platinum latitude members. When we booked this cruise as our winter getaway, we did not have much knowledge of South America. We arrived in Santiago 2 days ... Read more

Chose this cruise for the ship and Itinerary. First time for me with this many sea days. Absolutely loved it most relaxed cruise I've been on. Thought it was going to be an issue without laundry available. Wednesday came around got a ... Read more

We picked this cruise because we were trying to compare this ship with another lines mega ship. Having cruised several times on NCL and we had a very good idea what to expect. We arrived at the port a little after noon and the security ... 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

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 joined the ship in Hong Kong having selected this cruise as a special holiday to celebrate our golden wedding anniversary. We had already been advised that two ports of call were cancelled because of an Azipod engine problem. When ... 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

We chose this cruise as a warm getaway from the Canadian winter season. It was a great alternative to cruise out of NY. Only the first day was cool and then it warmed up, but there were many on board activities to keep you amused and ... 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

We chose this cruise line because we heard good things after reading reviews. We have sailed on 3 other cruises and loved them but decided to try a new line. We booked a mini-suite on the Getaway and the cruise went downhill from day ... Read more

Where did I get that idea? We sailed with our 4 and 6 year old sons for the first time and were really looking forward to some mommy and daddy time, and we got some, but not nearly enough. The kids program closes from 12-2 and from 5-7 ... Read more

Choose NCL based on approval ratings, a personal recommendation, destination and price. Embarking was an unpleasant experience. With priority boarding I expected more of a flare. We were directed to a roped off area where snacks were ... Read more

Lots of unhappy travelers on this ship. When they say make a reservation, they are serious! We missed the main shows as none were available. Only show we got to see was Howling at the Moon. It was GREAT! The old fashioned sit down and take ... Read more

I chose this cruise because I loved the itinerary and had previous sailed 2 times on the Getaway and LOVED the ship. I'm 30 and my boyfriend is 31, and we are extremely active. The Breakaway class has so much to offer active cruisers. From ... Read more

We were disappointed with this cruise. Previous cruises were spectacular, and this one did not measure up. Speaking with the crew staff working in the halls was enlightening. We were told their contracts were for 7 days per week 10-14 ... Read more

Just came off the Getaway and I feel a bit indifferent about my trip. I'm not liking the extra small balconies but the ship was nice. I guess it's a way of getting more people on board. This cruise was really different from the others I've ... Read more

We cruised the Escape because we had a very great experience on NCL Jade last year. This was also an easy choice because, with 3rd and 4th guest waived fares, we only had to pay the taxes (plus ship's gratuities) for our two boys. We ... Read more

If you are going to take this cruise I suggest you upgrade and spend the extra money on a suite. We stayed in room 13010 and it was very nice! The perks you get as a suite guest are amazing. 1.) Priority boarding 2.) Priority ... Read more

Our honeymoon cruise was amazing! Knowing how many people are on this ship, I was concerned about the crowds. NCL has done an amazing job of managing this, however. The Breakaway is broken into small pockets of action throughout the ... Read more

I really enjoyed my trip. I was originally concerned that 13 nights would be just too long, especially with the 2 days at sea leaving out of NYC and the 3 days at sea returning, but it ended up being the perfect length of time. Here are a ... Read more

We chose this cruise to see all of the islands and not have to jump on a plane between each. for the positives, Hawaii was beautiful and I loved it. I love to cruise too, but this one put a bad taste in my mouth. I am used to cruising ... Read more
