The ship: The ship was impressive, pretty good slides for kids, rock climbing, some sort of zip line contraption which I didn't know what it was until the last day, would have liked to try it. One complaint was the lack of elevators, ... Read more

The Sky is a good short trip for anyone. Our embarkation port was Miami. Embarkation was short and sweet. When we boarded we were able to leave our carry on luggage in a safe place with an attendant while we ate lunch. The food ... Read more

If I didn't know any better, I would not have thought I was on the same ship as the one I travelled on in July. What happened? I'm the mildest, most polite and appreciative person. Yet on 2 occasions I was particularly offended by ... Read more

After reading the reviews I certainly prepared myself not to have a good time. I was wrong! This was an amazing cruise! The staff gave great service during dining and my stateroom though extremely small was manageable (suitable for 1 ... Read more

Overall I had a wonderful cruise. Shame the weather for the first 2 sea days wasn't great! Loved the ship in general. Very contemporary feel, and obviously is brand new. My studio cabin for a solo traveller was a great idea, beautifully ... Read more

This was my 12th NCL Cruise. (3 SUN, 3 SKY, 2 PEARL, 2 EPIC, 1 DAWN) I was at first overwhelmed by the size, but once I got my bearings I really enjoyed the ship. The embarkation was OK, although I feel that Platinum members should be ... Read more

Just returned from excellent cruise with NCL Escape, having been many times on the Epic. NCL have got it right with one exception they just have not got enough staff on this ship. This is a big ship and at times it seemed very crowded. ... Read more

I choose this cruise primarily for the interesting ports and itinerary. Patagonia, Falkland Islands, The Horn, Straits of Magellan, Chilean Fjords, and more. Embarkation was something. Lots of lines, and checkpoints getting through the ... Read more

Is not just a metaphor is a reality. I just come back from a 17 days “back to back” cruise on Norwegian EPIC and I realised, once again, that EPIC and in general Norwegian Cruise Line is like marmite for breakfast: you love ... Read more

Had a fabulous time on Epic when I did the 15 night Canary Island and Western Med cruise over Christmas and New Year. The only fault I could find was that the ship was just too big, I'm used to smaller with approx 2000 passengers. ... Read more

We live 40 minutes from the port of houston, so this cruise is our go-to, especially if we find a deal. The port is so easy to deal with. Drive up to the porters, drop off your bags, and then park right in front of the terminal - it ... Read more

I read the reviews prior to sailing last week and frankly I was very concerned that I had made a mistake going so early on the Escape. A combination of the low percentage that folks said they had a good trip and the harsh comments really ... Read more

This was not only my first cruise with NCL, but the 3 other passengers I brought with me. The impression was that the cruise was geared more towards an older crowd. We are in the range of 28-38 years of age. I didn't mind that it was not a ... Read more

I was interested in going to Hawaii and this is the only ship that leaves from Honolulu sailing to three other islands. You get a lot of time at four different ports. This cruise is more about the ports than the ship. I sailed before the ... Read more
