Pleasant Experience not the best experience.
"Dining on the Norwegian Escape was just mediocre if you didn’t choose one of the premium dining options.As someone who worked in travel and the cruise industry, Norwegian always stuck out as the best and the innovator in cruising...."Read More

What a disorganized mess

This cruise was ok until I relied on the app we were asked to download. We were told to follow all the information on the app. I had an excursion time of 8:45 on the app. But apparently I was supposed to check the paper ticket to make sure they didn't screw it up. On the ticket it said meeting time 8:15 and departure 8:45 I got to the meeting place around 8:35 but the tour left early. Why is there ...

Cruise with Amazing Ports and Food

Embarkation of the Escape was a breeze. We joined the cruise in Civitavecchia while most of the passengers embarked in Barcelona. It was a full ship of 4200 guests, although the ship never seemed that crowded. Cabin - Our cabin was on the 14th deck Forward. Our steward kept it clean. Once we called him for another towel, TP, and kleenex and he was there in about 3 minutes. This is the ...

It’s mostly about the ports

I was torn between average and above but since I had the trip of a lifetime I would give the cruise part more credit. This was my 4th time on the Escape. The itinerary for this cruise was an awesome intense 9 day port filled adventure. Any shortcomings with the ship was forgiven by the awesome ports. This was a blended cruise. A portion of the passengers started in Barcelona and a portion ...

Good Cruise, but some things could be better

Overall it was a good experience on the cruise albeit there were a few areas that could have been improved on. The quality of the food was excellent in the A la carte restaurants and good in the others. The entertainment went from one extreme to another, the shows in the Theatre was very good and also the band in Syd Normans however the singers in the Brewhouse, the main Atrium and Duelling pianos ...

7th cruise on NCL, which can officially be named my favourite cruise line (been on RCI, Celebrity, MSC and Costa). So my review might be a bit biased. But, as always a great time onboard and a hard time on this last evening knowing tomorow morning is the time we (almost) all dread : disembarkation. The Escape is a very nice ship, very clean and modern. Well maintainend, but it's kind of a new ship ...

This was sent to Norwegian after my cruise. They offered me $200 towards a future cruise with them and said they were firm on that offer. Let´s talk about the positives first. Beautiful clean ship, the shows I did get to see were amazing. Best talent I have seen on any ship. I tried to see Choir of Man but could not see either show because they were both sold out. I traveled alone and several ...

The Ship is subpar.

The ports were amazing this ship won't ever see me again. I felt i should warn people that there are better choices in a similar price range than norwegian but maybe service has just gotten worse everywhere and in everything. The room was great (we had a balcony) most of the staff was great!!! But the food....what a disappointment. Soso disappointed. Ended up doing the buffet most nights. No ...

One of the Best Cruises Ever

This cruise ranks in my top 5 of all the cruises we have been on. We have been on 21 cruises, 7 with NCL. The level of service was top-notch. We compared it to Celebrity and HAL who I previously thought were the best. I loved the ship, our cabin, and the itinerary. We purchased 2 CruiseNext certificates. I wish to highlight why this sailing is so memorable: · Staterooms: nice ...

NCL fiasco.

NCL cruise sucked. Do not use them to do your airfare they suck at it and the BOGO free is not what they tell you. You don’t sit together and they find the worst flights. Paid additional $150 to get seats together. Food was not very good. We were quarantined for 24 hours due to a case of diarrhea and was told to go to doctor to get some Imodium . What a joke this cruise was. They have employees ...

Food was mediocre and entertainment was so so

I was so disappointed by the food. I had one very good meal at Moderno, but the rest of the meals were very disappointing. I cruised on a competitor in 2022 and there was no comparison. It is sad when the buffet is more appealing than the main dining rooms. The noodle bar mentioned in some reviews was available only for three meais over 11 days. Supoy paella and pad thai were major misses in ...
