I wanted to go on the Escape because I thought it would be amazing - a brand new ship! I found the Escape kinda small. I didn't like how difficult it was to get outdoors - not a nice walk out. I did like that the atrium area was more like ... 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

I am a newly retired school teacher from Tennessee and wanted to escape winter so decided on this cruise ship and was not disappointed. I stayed in a studio cabin that was small but met all that I needed. A studio lounge area for all that ... 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

From the moment we began our check in...My daughter Jacorien...and myself were richly impressed. The staff were very professional, yet personal. We had previously come to New Orleans aboard The City of New Orleans from Amtrak. A very ... 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 my first cruise after a 15 year hiatus (I traveled solo.) I scheduled this cruise on short notice I liked the free unlimited drink package but didn't use it as much as I wanted because of the limited alcohol brands available. ... 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

Well I was expecting a lot from the new escape but sadly wasn't impressed. The ship itself looks good although once on-board it kinda feels just like the getaway or breakaway can't say it feels that much bigger. This was might 8th ... Read more

As a seasoned cruiser, I persuaded my friend to go for a late break on the Epic. He hadn't cruised before and was initially reluctant to do anything but a land based holiday. My wife and I cruise a couple of times a year and I go on a ... Read more
