We joined this ship in Southampton, as we did many times on first sailings. No issues with getting on. We found the ship very plain in décor compared to other NCL ships but the eye got used to it. As Platinum members we were ... Read more

The ship was delayed for delivery, and unfortunately it showed. As with other reports, there were shortages of several things. Provisioning the ship should be a fairly standard practice - and notwithstanding when the ship was delivered, ... Read more

First, NCL clearly learned from the major mistakes on the Epic and did much better with the Escape, but she just wasn't quite ready for 10 days at sea. We had a mini-suite on deck 9 and embarkation was done pretty well. Not everyone ... Read more

I began in Dover, and it was a great cruise in the beginning. The stop in the AZORES is wonderful !! Just before reaching Miami they announced engine problems, and skipped the Miami stop. Fine with me, as we were compensated for that. ... Read more

I drink caffeine free diet coke. Ship had no Coke products. When did PepsiCo buy out NCL? I also found soft drinks in general very limited. Our balcony room had very hard beds and the skimpy 1 inch foam pad was no relief. The cabin ... Read more

Generally, when we travel, the time comes that you just want to click your heels together and be back at home. This cruise was not one of those times. We are avid cruisers, having been on most lines. We left Colorado on the 3rd of ... Read more

We have cruised on NCL many times, as well as a number of other cruise lines. This has to rate as the worst cruising experience, ever. The only redeeming feature was that we met many friendly fellow cruisers from the US, UK and Germany. ... Read more

We have cruised many times with various lines, but this was the first time with NCL. We booked a Transatlantic crossing, and after reading some reviews we were a bit apprehensive. WE HAD NOTHING TO WORRY ABOUT! - We found that embarkation ... Read more
