The ship is vey nice with plenty of options to keep you occupied. Biggest limitation was the pool areas on sea days. Nearly impossible to get a lounger and forget sitting by the pool or getting in. The Spa pass was very much worth it ... Read more

Great ship, great cruise, great memories. We chose the Escape for my son's senior spring break after cruising the Getaway and loving the ship. Our initial thoughts of a large ship being too crowded are completely gone. There are more ... Read more

This was cruise number 119 for me (I started as a baby). I've sailed on most of the major brands (NCL, RCCL, Carnival, Holland America, Celebrity, Costa and Princess). Lately, I've stuck with NCL because I really feel they are trying to ... Read more

This cruise was the perfect amount of time--four nights--and what made it really special was that we bought the Specialty Dining package for three nights. That meant we ate in the Palace Main Dining Room only one night which I must admit ... Read more

This cruise line was recommended by friends and they passed Deon's info to us and he walked us through the whole process. We loved the beverage packages, which were included, the soda package, and specialty dining. While the restaurants ... Read more

I have been on cruises before with my family but this was the first cruise I was planning with a group of friends. It was our senior year in college for spring break and we go to school in New Orleans so it was a natural choice to choose a ... Read more

The ship was nice, with some fun activities. I have been on many other cruise ships but nothing quite this large. In the end, too large and not personable at all. Ship: Inside Cabin lacking in every way of places to store items. I ... Read more

Rumor has it there were 1300 kids on board this sailing! Still, I laugh because it seems like adults are far more likely to be rude and annoying than the kids...I was almost taken out by speeding carts on more than one occasion. In a ... Read more

We cruised on the Norwegian Escape in March of 2017. We would recommend it for sure. I would also recommend the all drink package and three day restaurant package. Everything was top notch in every way. There are so many wonderful ... Read more

We chose NCL for the third time because our kids love the kids club and the free-style dining works well for us. We chose the Escape for the water slides and ropes course on-board, along with the itinerary. Pros: Food in buffet was ... Read more

This was our first cruise. I will say we made some rookie mistakes that added pre cruise stress. We didn't get insurance. We flew in the same day. We booked our return flight a little earlier than recommended. Ultimately that all didn't ... Read more

This was our first ever cruise, so I do not have anything to compare it with, but we were very happy with our choice. The ship is massive, but very clean and contemporary/new and we found it easy to navigate once we figured it out. We ... Read more

Stay away. The Garden Cafe is not like other ships. Very limited. Do not waste money on the spa. People are laughing, yelling and the staff does nothing to stop it. Their Harvest Cay island is not like the one in the Bahamas. You pay ... Read more
