Being a mega ship, the Getaway has a multitude of activities and attractions to keep passengers busy, but you can never get away from the crowds. People had to essentially climb over each other to snag a deck chair or a table at the ... Read more

This was our 31st cruise, fourth on NCL and was average at best. The craziest thing we have ever seen is the cabin setup. I'm sure you have seen this in other EPIC reviews but the bathroom is split up into three different areas. Food was ... Read more

We've been on most of the NCL ships. The Escape is big. Now I realize we should have planned better. We did not book our restaurants in advance online. This caused us problems. The reason we're giving this ship good marks is because ... Read more

We wanted a cruise from New Orleans so we could come back and spend New Years Eve in NO. We booked all excursions from ship but one, and were very satisfied with them. We had only traveled on Norwegian on the Pride of America around ... Read more

We are seniors. My husband and I picked this cruise as our anniversary and Christmas gift to each other. Embarkation was a nightmare for us. When we arrived at the cruise terminal there were at least 1,000 passengers many with small ... Read more

This was our first NCL cruise and I would compare the service and food with the more expensive Celebrity. Two members of our party required wheelchair assistance to embark & disembark and the process was the smoothest ever. Service ... Read more

My disabled husband and I took our annual cruise. Since he can't fly, we are fortunate to have options in Florida to drive to. Wanting to take a bigger ship, so the Norwegian Epic out of Canaveral was a good pick. Parking, Embarking, and ... Read more

We chose this cruise for the Itinerary. Contrary to what I had read about the November 2016 embarkation, ours went very well. It was the usual line of people yet the wait time wasn't bad. Once on the Epic, we went immediately to our ... Read more

My review of the December Epic cruise: FOOD - Most of the restaurants (except I was disappointed in O'Sheehan's - terrible food!!!) served very good food. Although, I was disappointed at times because the food wasn't served as hot as ... Read more

I've sailed on many ships, to include NCL's first one ( a converted ferry, that sank once and burned another time).. The main floor, that houses the casino restaurants , is crowed on most nights, to include noise, smoke and wall to wall ... Read more

Overall, it was a great cruise. Embarkation went smoothly and crew greeted us with smiles and were helpful in guiding us around the ship. First, I might say that we are not picky cruisers. This was our 18th cruise on various cruise ... Read more

We chose this cruise because we have been aboard the Escape 2 other times. Price was good, and we needed to get away and be treated to not cooking and cleaning. We picked the Guaranteed inside cabin and have never been sorry. We would ... Read more

The port canaveral operation needs a manager to organize their operation. Right now it is a mess. Taxis & shuttles lined up to pay entry fees. Very poor oversight, I'd fire someone. The cruise lines should demand improvement right ... Read more

The Norwegian Escape is big, bold and beautiful. We enjoyed this cruise immensely Pros: 1. New ship, with more public areas than you can imagine using in 7-nights! 2. Good dining options both free and up-charge. 3. Very ... Read more

My wife and I have had a trip to the Panama Canal on our 'bucket list' for a number of years. When a low cost ten day cruise showed up at Costco we jumped on it. We like Norwegian but they no longer leave from a Texas port and we weren't ... Read more

The Escape is a large vessel and seemed to be at full capacity (approx 4,700) which for example resulted in dining tables being placed on the dance floor in the Manhattan dining room reducing size by about 50%. Our cabin (10716) is located ... Read more

I should have taken a cue from the long lines we stood in to even get checked in and onto the ship. My 2 daughters and I had a mini balcony suite (with emphasis on mini). It was tiny. I cannot imagine what the interior staterooms ... Read more

This was our eighth cruise, and we chose it because it is only and hour away from our home, and we think we got a very good price for a mini suite. Unfortunately, it was our least favorite cruise of all, which include some very small ... Read more
