Not a bad deal for a spur of the moment decision. Our room ended up in the rear of the ship which was great. The balcony was a bit more private than the ones on the sides of the ship. Although we have done the Bahamas' thing too many ...
Traveled as a Solo with a group. Had solo cabin which was very comfortable. I had more room for my things than if I were sharing a cabin. I loved the changing color lights in the cabin. Shower is a bit tight, it was difficult to bend over. ...
I did the cruise as a solo. The Solo program with a coordinator and Barteneder in the lounge was excellent. Front row seats for theater events! Group dinners were great.
We did change ports, and missed Stirrup caye, We were told it ...
this trip was just long enough to have a great time, fun, shopping, theater shows, food was great everywhere I went, bingo, trivia, karaoke, slides, rope swings, parties, swimming, hot tubs, the movies, library, buffet, not too hot or ...
My Getaway Review
Cabin: #11539. See below for notes.
Entertainment: Phenomenal. I saw Burn the Floor (best show ever!) in the Getaway Theatre, Illusionarium (magic show done in a play-like format with very talented magicians). Also ...
Second time on this ship for only two main reasons. After my first cruise on NCL three years ago, I started collecting ship models, neglecting to obtain one of the Sky. After my voyage to Panama Canal on NCL Pearl last October/November, I ...
This was my 17th NCL cruise and my 3rd on The Epic. I am NCL Platinum
I did a B2B from Port Canaveral (Western and Eastern Carib)
Everything was great as always.
The food everywhere was awesome. I ate at both MDR's, La Cucina, ...
My friends & I really enjoyed the cruise. There were seven of us & we had rooms ranging from a single studio, to an inside cabin to a spa balcony. We all enjoyed the Mandara Spa.
We had unlimited drinks (no skimping on the ...
Have been on the Epic several times as I like the Single Studios.
You get what you pay for.
But things are going down hill fast.
Cabin Service poor my steward was some Eatern European girl who only spoke basic English.
This was supposed to be a divorce celebration cruise (yes, I coined this term lol), it didn't turn out that way. Very turbulent trip the first 3 days and very noisy hallway and or ship mechanics/maintenance. The ports of call were not so ...
I really enjoyed my trip. I was originally concerned that 13 nights would be just too long, especially with the 2 days at sea leaving out of NYC and the 3 days at sea returning, but it ended up being the perfect length of time. Here are a ...
This is our third Norwegian Cruise. It was our first time in a Spa Balcony Cabin, the other were Suites. Our cabin included unlimited access to the spa facilities, 3 free Specialty meals and free standard alcohol plus $175 ...
I chose this cruise to try out the studio cabin, and I liked the itinerary. The cruise took place over Christmas, and the ship tried to make it as festive as possible, but it still felt as though something was missing, and I did not feel ...
This was my fourth cruise of the year. Two on Carnival (Breeze: 3,700 and Valor: 3,000) and Royal Caribbean’s Oasis of the Seas (5,400). The Getaway carries around 4,000. I travel with a group, don’t consider myself too picky, ...
This was first time on Escape previously on Epic. Both greate ships. Signed for Vibe for first time and worth it if you have +2 sea days. Great Bar staff who made the experience worth it. Met lots of people from all over the UK. ...
This is my 3rd NCL cruise, 2nd staying in the Studio (cabins made for solo travellers). And I love it! I have cruised other lines before (Princess, RCL, Celebrity, Costa & Holland America) but they do not know how to cater to solos ...
NCL Pearl - Partial Transit of the Panama Canal - December 8 -> 19, 2016
Wednesday, December 7 - Travel Day
Before I start reviewing the cruise, I thought you would like to know a little about the person writing this. This is my ...
I chose this cruise because of the price. It was all inclusive and super cheap. I have heard nothing but positive things about Norwegian from friends. I am so glad that I finally got to experience "the cruise". We were ...
The Forward balcony cabin on 10 10018, was away from ALL traffic and far enough away from elevators so no DING. It was close to the elevators, Convient to pool, and casino. And away from all noise in halls and partying.
Also great for ...
This was our first NCL cruise and we didn't choose it; we "crashed" my sister's vacation (she and her husband are awesome to travel with!). We didn't travel with children and we stayed in separate cabins. My sister in an ...
I choose this cruise as it is a great way to see part of South America in a safe and secure environment. Given the crime levels in South America and not speaking Spanish or Portuguese the cruise is the obvious choice to get a flavour of ...
First off, I may not be as experienced as some of the other reviewers and I wouldn't consider myself high maintenance. I personally believe each cruise line has positives and negatives and that you can have a good time based on your needs ...
The Norwegian Escape is big, bold and beautiful. We enjoyed this cruise immensely
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 ...
I chose this cruise for the itinerary. I had not been to 6 of the 8 islands. The balcony room was a little cramped and I did not like that there were no drawers in the room for clothing - just shelves. The crew was hit or miss for service ...
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 ...
