We booked the 12 day Denali Rail explorer. The cruise part of our trip was great. We picked up the ship in Vancouver and disembarked in Seward Alaska. The ship was small but offered up everything you would need. Nightly entertainment was ... Read more

As first time cruisers we were recommended to the Epic by a friend. We didn't know what to expect but can honestly sum the experience up in one word "WOW". The moment we arrived for boarding we were overwhelmed by the size ... Read more

This was our 3rd time on the Epic and due to my wifes 70th birthday we decided to try the Haven suites. The cruise itself was very enjoyable and up to the usual Epic standards, however the "Haven Experience" is not worth the ... Read more

We chose this cruise for our anniversary. I have taken 8 cruises before. 1 on Carnival and 7 on RC the last one being Freedom of the seas. It took way to long to embark the ship. One hour and a half. Once on board it was very unorganized. ... Read more

I don't know how anyone could give this cruise a bad review. Yes, be prepared to spend some money, but it's a once in a lifetime trip (may be twice). We were on our honeymoon (2nd marriage at 53). We were in cabin 9094 (mid ship balcony). ... Read more

This cruise was taken in conjunction with my wedding. We were married prior to the ship departing Miami aboard the NCL Escape. It was a small wedding with 19 guests (no children) and it was amazing. The staff at NCL took very good care of ... Read more

That cruise was chosen because of embarkation from Seattle (no need to flight). Also I've been traveling with NCL before. Price was almost the same in compare with other cruise lines but that one was selected because of Latitude rewards ... Read more

This trip was the 4th trip my wife and I have taken with NCL and by far our least favorite ship. Had it not been for the destination (Bermuda), the friends we were with, and the fact that we renewed out vows for our 25th anniversary the ... Read more

We booked this cruise not anything about cruising. We were given the opportunity to pay for the trip over 12 months which was really handy. We chose to pay upfront for the drinks package and for 5 nights of our 7 we upgraded to a la ... Read more

We had originally booked the NCL Dawn out of Boston but were cancelled due to their extended dry docking. We had gone on the NCL Getaway, last year and were not impressed. So we chose the smaller, Dawn, instead. The Breakaway class ... Read more

We absolutely loved our time on the Breakaway! Embarkation: We are from Syracuse NY - took Yankee Trials from the Albany area directly to the ship. The luggage went on the bus and we next saw it in our cabin. We were directed to ... Read more

The Escape is NCL's newest ship and it is a big deception. It clearly symbolizes NCL's move away from the all-inclusive nature of cruising, a move away from customer comfort and entertainment, and a dive into maximizing profits for NCL at ... Read more

We drove to Miami from Georgia the day before and stayed in Miami Friday night. Parking at the port was empty because it's absurdly over-priced. We paid for off-site parking which was adequate. We boarded at 1:30. The elderly woman was ... Read more

First and foremost, we chose this cruise for the itinerary. The Ports of Call were ones we really wanted to see. Unfortunately, Istanbul and Ephesus were substituted with Dubrovnik and Kotor. This was no one's fault but a safety ... Read more
