Once with Norwegian was enough
"When we finally arrived on the island, us and many others were told that we were late and the tour left without us and to see the excursion desk for a refund.Overall, an ok cruise, but as the title states, this is our last with Norwegian...."Read More

Overall this was a great cruise for me. First time using a Solo room. I was really happy with the Solo room and space. Definitely my new preferred way to travel so I don't have to worry about finding a friend to go on a cruise with me when I go with other friends. I had the best bartenders ever on this one. I had some really good ones before on NCL cruises. But the ones working at the whiskey ...

Relaxing getaway in the Haven

We were looking for a ship with a thermal spa. Wound up with a Haven Spa suite on the Escape. We can't say enough about the elevated level of service. From the avoidance of the long lines to board the ship to the personal butler service that attended to all our needs. Renson was our butler and seemed to always be in eyesight in case anything was needed. He was awesome. The private Haven Lounge ...

We had never done a transatlantic before and we're not getting any younger, so we figured now or never...and never wasn't an option. We had a Mediterranean cruise on the Escape canceled in May, 2020 and were determined to do this one. The ship itself was practically spotless. The crew was extremely friendly, always smiling and greeting you in the hallways. Our cabin steward, Ryan, was superb. ...

I chose this cruise because I enjoy transatlantic sailings. We embarked at Civitavecchia, visited Livorno, Cannes, Barcelona, Alicante, Malaga, Cadiz, Lisbon, Ponta Delgada and disembarked at my home port, New York City. We had seven fun filled sea days. There were alot of trivia games offered. NCL Escape has great entertainment and dining was also very good. Lobster is offered as an upcharge in ...

This was our first transatlantic trip. We have sailed on Norwegian before and really had no issues. I can't say enough about the staff they were great, friendly and accommodating. My husband uses a walker, and they attended to his needs at all times. Love the performances and shows, except the one duo, who had no personality at all on stage, they looked bored. The Entertainment Team did an ...

I booked Norwegian for the first time during the pandemic and had Future Cruise Credit to use or loose. Having primarily cruised with Celebrity my expectations of the cruising experience is high.. This specific ship is big by all accounts, however the individual spaces are not very big to accommodate large number of passengers all enjoying the pool, same show or entertainment outside of the ...

10+ Cruises • Age 60s

We initially booked this cruise in the spring, had to cancel then rebooked it 2 weeks before sailing. Saved $800. This was our 25th Wedding anniversary and we wanted to do another TA. The ports are what made this cruise, Rome, Livorno, Cannes, Barcelona, Alicante, Malaga, Cadiz, Lisbon then the Azores (lost 1 port there because of the weather). Boarding in Rome was a breeze. From when we were ...

I've travelled a lot on the Norwegian Epic before and decided to try out this newer ship, which should have several improvements for the wellknown flaws the Epic has. And yes, this is in all means a better and nicer ship. I had a great vacation on the Escape and sometimes I ask myself if people who are extremely negative in reviews were on the same ship? Is it perfect? Of course not, but it's a ...

Just off the Escape and a wonderful cruise. The ship was spotless. It became a game to try to see something dirty, torn, or in disrepair. Nothing. Lovely, friendly staff. We had an aft cabin and would choose that again. Deck was very large: two loungers, two straight chairs, and a small table. Deck 12. Beautiful to look out on the the propeller wash as we sailed. Best of all you had view of three ...
