NCL is the cruise line of choice for our family and Miami has been the favored embarkation or departure city. We prefer to fly into Ft. Lauderdale (FLA) and stay there as well. KSA Tours is the shuttle service of choice for their ... Read more

We flew in to Miami the day before and spent the night at an Embassy Suites (would not recommend the hotel). The next morning we were off to port. The embarkation process was smooth and given the number of passengers, reasonably quick. ... Read more

My husband and I took our honeymoon on The Escape and we had a blast! This is our first time cruising with NCL (Royal and Carnival in the past). The drink package and newer ship drew us to NCL. The food was phenomenal -- Manhattan room, ... Read more

The Epic is a very large ship with a cozy feeling. The cabin was a family balcony with bed next to the balcony. The size is a little strange and bathroom unusual. This was the only thing we did not care for. The toilets lack of privacy. We ... Read more

The ship is very new, and absolutely beautiful. While it was a bit daunting to think about being on a ship this size with over 4000 passengers, for the most part the experience was good with lots of options for entertainment, eating and ... Read more

This cruise was within pre-set time frame I needed to use as a guide line. This was our 4th cruise with Norwegian and as the ships keep getting larger, Jade once, Breakaway twice, so were the crowds in the common areas. For this ... Read more

This cruise was the perfect amount of time--four nights--and what made it really special was that we bought the Specialty Dining package for three nights. That meant we ate in the Palace Main Dining Room only one night which I must admit ... Read more

This was my wife and myself cruise number 10 ( 8 with NCL) and must admit we were wary of such a large ship, would you still get the Cruise experience or would it feel like a holiday resort. Felt we had the best of both. The Epic is ... Read more

Great way to spend seven days on the sea and visit a few countries in the Caribbean. The food served on the ship was excellent, with many choices offered. Recommend you book early, before boarding, for speciality restaurants. Most of the ... Read more

We flew into Miami a night early. There was a bit of a snafu with the Pullman hotel, but NCL sorted it out right quick and we were soon ready to explore. We had enough time to grab some last minute items at the nearby CVS and some Cuban ... Read more
