We chose this cruise because this was our first trip to Hawaii and we wanted to experience as much as we could in 7 days. We had done a 12-night Mediterranean cruise with NCL a couple years ago, and found it to be a great way to see a lot ... Read more

This cruise was relatively disappointing in terms of the ship and the staff, because we had been on NCL's Breakaway and Getaway before. Pride of America can't hold a candle to the newer ships Breakaway and Getaway, and yet Pride of America ... Read more

The Escape From the Captain to the CD Tyler Gray to the entire crew and staff, thus far being on the Escape has been our best experience and we have cruised a lot! The Escape had the best of both worlds with free styling yet the ... Read more

Too many bratty kids on the boat! We chose this line because of the price. We got a very good discount. Well, i guess we got we paid for. The best time of the cruise was when we were off of the boat. However, the last stop in ... Read more

Originally we had planned a cruise in Europe, however due to work schedules, we found it necessary to push up our already paid for cruise and decided to cruise for my birthday. We had a balcony cabin on the 11th deck. Typically, we don't ... Read more

Beautiful ship! Good food and service. Didn't love all the ports. Athens is not a place I want to revisit. Croatia is it okay but probably not a place I would visit again. Santorini is wonderful but I had been there before, ... Read more

I chose this cruise because I heard many great reviews about how polite the staff is, relaxing cruise (just what we needed), and it was at the exact time I was able to take a vacation. The first day I was so excited to get onto the boat ... Read more

Came back yesterday 7/2 from our 1st cruise ever. Escape made that experience exceed our expectations. Only reason I did not give Excellent 5 star rating was due to the pools. The fact that there is only 1 main pool on a ship that size is ... Read more

I've sailed on 5 Carnival cruises so far and my 6th will be this August. This is my 1st with Norwegian and this was the Dawn's 2nd cruise after it's 2016 renovation in May/June. This cruise will be compared to Carnival. In my opinion, I ... Read more

This was our first time on Norwegian. We chose this cruise because we were able to book a mini-suite with 2 packages - specialty dining and a drink package. We have never cruised on a large ship -- and this one housed 5,000 passengers - ... Read more

We chose this cruise because we wanted to experience freestyle cruising, as it was our first in a large ship. Another reason was the Norwegian Escape, which is a new ship. We couldn't have made a better decision! As we were honeymooners, ... Read more

The Norwegian Escape is a beautiful ship but the cruise itself could do this A LOT of improvements. The worst experience of this cruise is Tyler - the Cruise Director. He is the frat boy who never grew up. He is everywhere throughout ... Read more

We chose Norwegian Cruise Lines because of the huge party we saw going on at a specific port to welcome guests back to the ship. We wanted to be a part of that party!!! The embarkation process was 20 minutes from door to ship. We ... Read more

Would have been 4.5 but that isn't an option. NCL has definitely upped it's game. Thankfully, the old NCL is dead and gone. The entire cruise staff was the friendliest and most helpful that we have ever encountered. The cruise ... Read more

Overall, a great experience and I would not hesitate to do it again. Getaway is a beautiful ship. The main indoor atrium is called 678 Ocean Place and this is where you will find a lot of the entertainment as well as the nicer ... Read more
