This was the first cruise for my wife and I, and chose Norwegian on the specials they were running at the time. This was one of the best vacations of our lives. We purposely chose this date of sail to avoid the school children and the ... Read more

My husband and I had a wonderful time on the Escape. I am not sure why people have such negative reviews about it. If you do your research ahead of time, you know what to expect and can plan appropriately. For the first time, we booked ... Read more

We had first cruised on Norwegian in Feb. 2016 on a Caribbean cruise. We had a suite on the Dawn,which was great and that probably affected our decision to join this cruise on her sister ship. There could not have been a bigger ... Read more

Nothing particular is "wrong" with this cruise ad Norwegian. But nothing is outstanding either. Unless we plan another cruise to Hawaii on the Pride of America, this is our third and likely last Norwegian cruise. The first ... Read more

We sailed Norwegian previously and found the line to have excellent service and excellent staff. Our cabin was great and the food was awesome (the buffett is still a buffett; but even the food there wasn't bad). The specialty restaurants ... Read more

Main reason we choose Spirit is due to the ports! And the timing as well. We were not flexible with time and the Spirit timing fits perfectly. This is our first cruise so we can't compare ncl with other cruises. Special shout out to ... Read more

I chose the NCL based on a previous cruise to the Caribbean which was a great experience. This cruise did not even come close to the level of service or quality unfortunately. Embarkation was crazy but moved along quickly. My husband ... Read more

The ship is clean and well loved by its keepers. Because the ship does not have a casino and as a result of reading poor food and entertainment reviews, my thought was to book this cruise as a floating hotel to reach all of the important ... Read more

Perfect adult getaway! Not for kids or families though. This is not the biggest, nicest ship I've been on, but great drinks that are part of the cruise price! This is the first time my bar bill didn't exceed the cost of my cruise, lol. ... Read more

We sailed Epic August 10-17, 2016 and this was our second cruise. Choose NCL because of flexible dining and beverage package. Liked the idea of not having to carry our luggage from city to city in Europe - with a cruise you can get off at ... Read more
