We chose this cruise because it fit our scheduled Spring Break. Since I am a teacher and we have a school aged child, that is the week we needed to go. We were also excited to try a Norwegian cruise because we had never cruised on ... Read more

We started cruising in Alaska on the Norwegian Sun, went to Jamaica & Mexico on the Epic, and did an amazing European cruise on the Jade. This time we chose the Eastern Caribbean on the Escape for Spring break. We were thrilled with ... Read more

We really loved NCL's Epic. It is huge. We had an accessible mini-suite which was huge and so comfortable. The balcony was extra-large too. It had two chairs plus a lounge chair. In fact, one day when it was very windy and cloudy, I ... Read more

Pros. The ship is very clean and still looks like new. The food was good. The buffet had plenty of great options and large enough to never be busy. Finding a table in the buffet was never an issue. The complimentary dining ... Read more

We chose this cruise based on the itinerary and departure date since we were limited to Spring break. I felt "price gouged" traveling during the holiday, and nickel and dimed for everything (we were pre warned by others) The ... Read more

This was our sixth cruise in succession with NCL over Spring break in the eastern Caribbean. Reservation process was ok but nothing special. No benefit to being Latitudes members. Embarkation process is always slick but bags took ... Read more

Embarkation was a long, slow process even though we were there an hour early. Waited in line almost three hours. Definitely bring food, water, etc. and maybe something that you can sit on while you wait. Departure was delayed due to ... Read more

I went for my spring break with about 40 of my friends. We had the time of our lives. The all inclusive drinking and eating package was what made the experience wonderful. I think for the price we paid we got our money's worth. There ... Read more

After much consideration we booked our first non-dcl cruise on the Escape. The price was right, hubby was encouraged by the District brewhouse and DS17 by the all-night wing availability. We were determined to go in with open minds. We ... Read more

First, I must admit that I am partial to freestyle cruising. I love the freedom to do what you want, when you want, dress-up or not; thus, points are auto-added just for that. Getting aboard was quick and easy. We were escorted to ... Read more

The ship looks like it's large but once you get on board it feels like there are only 4 places to hang out. All the additional dining options and experiences that require an upcharge dominate the space on the ship. Our interior cabin ... Read more

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 ... Read more
