This seven-night sailing on Escape was our sixth cruise and our first on Norwegian. We've sailed once on Disney Dream and four times on Royal Caribbean vessels. For 2017, we decided to try something new and, for the most part, it was a ... Read more

We've experienced many cruise lines and looked forward to trying NCL. The Escape is a beautiful ship, however it does not have any quiet adult place to sun and escape except my stateroom balcony. The pool areas are not equipped to handle ... Read more

We arrived at the Port of Miami around 11 am for our check in. In my opinion this is way too early as there are still people getting off the ship from the prior cruise. Check in was fast and easy. You have are given a boarding number and ... Read more

Overall, loved our cruise on the Escape but it was very expensive compared to other options. It was multi-generational, with ages ranging from 18 to 77, so we needed something for everyone ... and we found it. There will always be ... Read more
