Review October 27, 2019 NCL Escape Day 1 Sunday, October 27 arrived at pier in NYC around 12:10 because we were told via VM check in only between Noon and 3 due to coast guard inspection. Apparently we were the only ones told because at Haven check in we were checked in and immediately online to board ship. However, no Haven staff to bring us on board and we had to find our way on. When we got on ship it was already packed with people already having lunch. Haven restaurant already packed we had to sit at table outside the Haven Restaurant which was just fine. Our room was ready about 1:30. Haven Courtyard Penthouse 17128. Dinner was at LeBistro and was good as usual. (We had the dinner package for three meals and I made all dinner reservations online after final payment was made).We had the dinner promo (3), the Beverage Package, and Unlimited WiFi. I put our phones on Airplane Mode for the entire trip and used FB messenger to contact people. We prepaid the gratuities, however, tipped where called for. Our room steward was Rommel and did an adequate job. When I asked if I could have a lounge chair on our balcony in ten minutes he arrived with a helper with a lounge! (We gave him a little something when we first met him and a little something when we left. Our butler was Fernando we gave him something when we met him and something when we left. We never asked for anything special from him. He dropped off some fruit and little snacks in the afternoon.Patrick was our concierge and we gave him something when we left. Day 2 Monday, October 28 at sea Breakfast and Dinner at Haven Restaurant...always good....Lunch at Buffet.....just ok. Day 3 Tuesday, October 29 Port Canaveral.....stayed onboard and went up on Deck 19 sunbathing. Weather was gorgeous. Saw a show at the Supper Club.....priority seating due to Haven.....four young men singing songs from 50’s...very entertaining! They served a steak (or fish) dinner during the show...we opted out of that.....instead had dinner at the Haven restaurant. Day 4 Wednesday, October 30....breakfast early at the Haven Restaurant. Great Stirrup Cay. Weather again gorgeous! priority disembarking because of Haven. When we got on island saw another NCL ship was already there the Norwegian Sun. Note: very rocky in the water ...... recommend those water shoes....I got a nice gash on my heel.....be sure to also pack some bandaids and antibiotic ointment....luckily I always do. Lunch at the buffet. Dinner at LaCucina......excellent. And a little time and money at the Casino. Day 5 Thursday, October 31 Nassau, Bahamas. Breakfast at the Haven Restaurant, Lunch at Buffet and Dinner at the Haven Restaurant......didn’t get off the ship....relaxed....and relaxed some more. Left Nassau around 610pm. Lots of passengers and crew in Halloween costumes. Ship rocking all night.....feeling the motion of the ocean. More time at casino. Day6 Friday......@ sea......breakfast at Haven restaurant......toilets not flushing on our Haven Deck 17...... oh boy! Fixed quickly. Seas a little choppy. Lunch at buffet. Dinner at Haven restaurant. Day7 Saturday ...... @sea........breakfast at Haven restaurant.......relaxed....lunch at buffet......decide to get a jump on things and packed so we could enjoy our last night. Dinner at Cagneys....so good.......my husband had lobster tails and I had salmon.....casino for a little while and called it a night. Day8 Sunday.....had coffee and a muffin in our cabin as we were going to be walking off with priority disembarking ...... left our cabin 715am.......passports not needed to be shown since they had facial recognition screens set up. Walked across the street got in a yellow taxi and we were in our house 800am....(we live in Astoria, Queens). The taxi cost us $45 (a little more than usual) because the driver had to avoid certain routes due to the NY Marathon! Can’t wait for October 2020 on the Encore!!!!!! Read Less

I chose this cruise since it was close to my port. We arrived at the port and hadabsolutely no waiting at all (we have sailed with Norwegian many times are wererewarded for loyalty). We feel they take care of their loyal customers in severalways. We had many great meals especially Cagneys which is our favorite (Steak and Lobster) how can you go wrong. We also like the Manhattan Room which is not a Specialty restaurant (Very Goodfood) and has entertainment oncertain days. Our Room was great it had a great view and oodles of storage for the two of us. It was a family oceanview room with a large window. Our room steward couldnt have been better Casino was hopping every nite and we saw a lot of big winners. We saw two shows which were very entertaining. Our favorite stop on our cruise wasGreat Stirrup Kay - Huge barbeque with various bq food just steps away from yourlounge chairs. Water is clear and just right for Snorkling. Read Less

I chose Norwegian Cruise Line because I wanted to experience one of their ships. It was not a disappointment. The food all the way from breakfast to dinner including snacks and dessert were delicious. Every restaurant and any other venue on board were all upscale. Activities to entertainment were all that. You never run out of things to do or places to go. Staff and service were superb. Our stateroom with balcony was beautiful. Cleaniness was 100%. Everything and everyone were well organized. And they force strong precaution on sanitation and safety which is a plus. Their private island Great Stirrup Cay was beautiful. The boarding procees and disembarking were a breeze. Our Norwegian travel agent put our vacation together and we had no worries. Everything from air flight to grounds transportation arriving and departing were no hassle. Everything listed on the ship's itinerary ran ontime. Directions around the ship were easy to follow and remember. I will definitely travel with Norwegian again. Read Less

We sailed with other cruise lines but this was our first NCL. The ship was very clean and the service was excellent! We had an opportunity to bid on an upgraded cabin and won the bid! We were in the Aft Penthouse with a very large balcony. The butler and concierge assigned to our cabin never missed a detail. It was definitely worth the extra money. The food was good on NCL but not as good as Royal Caribbean. However, the workers on NCL were friendlier and more attentive. The shows on the Sky were entertaining. My husband is usually never interested in seeing the shows but he went with me every night! The NCL dancers were first rate! We went to Key West, Great Stirrup Cay and Nassau. Key West is alot of fun so any excursion you book there will be a blast or you can opt to walk off the ship and tour the island yourself. The ship docks within walking distance to Duval St and all the popular sites. Great Stirrup Cay was WONDERFUL! We reserved a private villa which was right on the beach. The beach is beautiful and very clean. We had beverage service and a private buffet reserved for the villa guests. We will definitely go back to this island in the future. Nassau was disappointing. Our jeep tour was cancelled because the tour operator did not show up. After a half hour she finally showed up and when we told her that Norwegian cancelled the excursion she got mad at us! We walked around the town but were annoyed at the sales people trying to lure you in their stores. It was a great trip and we will definitely be sailing with NCL again!! Read Less

We chose this cruise for a quick long weekend get away. We had another couple join us, they had never cruised. This was our 7th cruise, the first on Norwegian. Overall, the ship was in great shape very clean. The rooms were much smaller than we have had on previous ships, along with a small bathroom. The balcony was fine, about the same as we had had before. We only met our attendant once, however the room was clean. The food was ok, a bit cold in the main dinning room the first night, Cagney's was outstanding. The buffet was fine. The comedian and the musical shows were good. Key West was fun, although we did not know we were visiting during fantasy fest, great people watching. The private island was great, Nassau was way too hot and hectic, we decided to go back on board and enjoy the pool. Getting on and off were easy, overall a great weekend. Read Less

My 4 sisters, 2 nieces, 2 cousins and I took a 2night cruise to Nassau, Blue Lagoon Island, on Oct 22-24,2019 as an all girl getaway. We had the most fun! We learned as a mid week cruise the ship had only less than 150 passengers. We had the ship and crew almost all to ourselves. We had Sasih, our room attendant, making us the most fabulous towel animals. Loved them! FloriAnne in photography was so sweet and helpful when we were ordering photos. Raul (Wait staff) and Edwin in the Casino kept us served and amused. And a special mention of Ruel, in the Yellow Elder Restaurant, and his team for the most amusing, fun and totally enjoyable dinners both nights. Check in was a breeze, we went for lunch where we met Davor, and ardent waiter. Our staterooms were as expected, very clean and roomy enough. Sasih met us at the door and knew our names. We had our meals at the Yellow Elder, took in stage shows we enjoyed. Everything was perfect. The shore excursion to Blue Lagoon Island was so relaxing, until 2 of our ladies lost the battle of the lounge chairs on the beach and injured their foot. The First Aid technician was professional and knowledgable and treated both with care. One of my nieces really enjoyed her time at the Dolphin Encounter. We cannot wait to do this again! Thank you for a memorable family cruise!!! Read Less

We have always wanted to see the NEW CoCo Cay, and it was worth the wait and expense! Our cabin was amazing as well, the coveted pie-shaped panoramic ocean view stateroom on Deck 12, #1864. It was so huge and we had 5 panes of glass to gaze out on the ocean and surroundings. The food is decenct. Not amazing but good, for the price. I was actually dissapointed in my dinner at CHOPS, it usually is excellent, but they missed the mark this time. Maybe it was an off night. I have to add in here that Adventure Ocean is very good. Our 6 and 8 year old loved going there and never complained about it. I cannot fully express how awesome COCO CAY is! We had so much fun. Our kids rode the water slides over and over and we never had to wait very long in line. We were the only ship on the island that day. I think on other days there are two RCCL ships at the island. If you can book a cruise where you are the only ship, you will practically have the island to yourself. The large pool was crowded, but the water park always had a place to sit in the shade with lots of umbrellas. Also, the "Free" food on Coco cay was really good, and way better than the average Windjammer food! All in all, you NEED to visit coco cay, especially if you have kids, and try to get #1864 on deck 12, what an amazing room! Read Less

My boyfriend and I thoroughly enjoyed our vacation on the Norwegian Sky!! The food was delicious, the service was impeccable and the entertainment was fun and memorable! We enjoyed our balcony view of the ocean and getting to see the sunrises and sunsets. The room size was perfect and I loved how there were hand sanitizing stations everywhere on the ship. That was a huge plus! The only downside to this ship, is that there wasn't a slide or laser tag or anything fun like that. Only basketball and golf I think. Our embarkation to Great Stirrup Cay was AMAZING! It was the highlight of our trip and my boyfriend's favorite! Your food and beverages package still applies while on the island. So your food and drinks are still included free, you just have to pay the island tax on your drinks (not expensive). The music was great and the water was clear. Plenty of beach chairs available for everyone! I am so grateful for this cruise because it has definitely brought my babe and I closer together. Thanks Norwegian! Read Less

My first cruise and definitely will not be my last! Great experience on the Norwegian Sky. Lots to do, great food, great people, and you simply cannot get bored. I do recommend a balcony cabin, it is a game-changer. We were never crowded anywhere on the ship, and the service made us feel like we were the only ones on board. We especially enjoyed the Great Stirrup Cay, where Norwegian went the extra mile to have a private (and very clean) dining area, washrooms, chairs, and all the amenities that a resort would offer in a day- only we had the luxury of waking up in a new area (or at sea, very peaceful!) every morning. The cabin was incredibly clean and surprisingly spacious, so there are no additional comments regarding this. As for dining, there are many à la carte options (the Palace is great), although their buffet on Deck 11 had more than enough choice to satisfy anyone’s tastes. Read Less

I will begin at embarkation. Besides the typical security issues, could not have gone smoother. Very helpful and friendly employees helping in the process We had a promenade view stateroom. Decided to try for the first time. Not worth any extra money. Not a great view. Could not hear any activities. Will not travel this category again. Dining experience was typical. Did try My Time Dining. Again, the 1st experience. Was not impressed. Dinner took much more time than traditional. Wait staff appeared to have some difficulty with properly serving guest. Windjammer: EXCELLENT !!!! I would choose this type of dining over any other. Very care-free and laid back. I chose the same table everytime and the waiter, Shashen, was beyond INCREDIBLE. Anything needed, he was there. Always smiling and very happy. By far, the best waiter on ANY cruise which I have had. The total package of what a waiter should be. Royal Caribbean is very lucky to have him. Onboard entertainment: Again, typical. Nothing to really highlight. Evening shows were average, with one night an exception. That evening was great. Perfect Day at Cocoa Cay: Royal Caribbean has hit a GRAND SLAM here. They have set themselves ABOVE the competition. What an amazing transformation. Fun and relaxation for everyone. Best Port of Call I have personally experienced. Being new, still may be a few things to “iron out”, but INCREDIBLE. Don’t miss this port !!!!! Debarkation: Real issues. Communication between the vessel and the port authorities was BAD !!!!!!! My party was TWICE stopped due to employees sending us, and others, either the wrong direction or the wrong time. Once we FINALLY made it to the luggage area, NO bags to be found. Along with several others, they were missing. After waiting for AT LEAST 30 mins, someone found the bags somewhere on the ship... debarkation was a complete nightmare !! Return: yes Recommend : yes Highly Recommend: Cocoa Cay Read Less

Fantastic service, food and room was plenty spacious for my husband’s scooter. Fully handicapped accessible. Well laid out. Tons of storage space throughout closet and vanity. Nice living room area away from the bed with comfortable sofa and chair seating with a sturdy table. Room close to elevators. Room steward decorated for my birthday and the front desk provided a voucher for a free cake. Took it to the dining room and they allowed us to take it to the cabin after dinner that night. The shows were well done. Pool service stewards were friendly, attentive and courteous. Many activities options-not bombarded constantly with boring art auctions. Cruise Director Lutz has the perfect personality for her job. She is friendly outside of her “stage” performance and announcements. She was enthusiastic about her job. Thank you! Two afternoon movies were shown and a couple of late night movies between the Bliss lounge and Stardust Theater. Ship was well decorated and maintained. Very clean. This was our second trip on this ship and we’ve had a great experience both times! Read Less

He was so much better to us than dingo Dave, and dingo Dave was fun, but the experience could’ve been the same without him. My vacation would not have been as much if Kervin was not there. Tutu was a great room steward and the cruise director staff was great! I loved the sing it if you know it, I wish there was more of that!! Also majority rules was very fun!

I chose this cruise because of the dates and the price. The refurbishment of the ship is great. Very modern and beautiful. the entertainment was also very good. The pool area is very nice (plenty of chairs and good music). The food in the main dining room was very good, no need for specialty dining to get excellent food and service. The crew was very nice. There were no long lines anywhere. Not for the buffet of guest services. We enjoyed the ports of call, even though we had been to all of them before. Nice touch ncl, offering a wet wash cloth to all passengers as we boarded from each port. I especially like a small ship, and this small ship was one of the best i have been on. I have gone on 52 cruises, and this was in my top 10! I din't expect the cruise to be this nice, especially for the low price. Read Less

My Husband and I only had a weekend to be able to celebrate our 10 year anniversary so we decided on this cruise and boy are we glad we did! This short cruise really crams in a lot. We did the key program, drinks package and unlimited dining plan which I highly recommend but even without those additions this cruise is really great. So much to do on board and very good entertainment going on non stop. We did blue lagoon island in Nassau which was awesome but with coco cay included you don't need to spend extra on excursions unless you really want to. The ship is so awesome you might want to just stay onboard in Nassau. The food in all of the specialty restaurants was really good. Especially Chops. Best food I've ever had on a cruise. The coffee was definitely best from the coffee shop on the promenade. The ride was a little bumpy at times but not too bad. We got a balcony room and it was really great. Plenty of room and beautiful views and our room steward Ketut always kept it very clean. Did the free continental room service to save time on the 1st morning and that was very good and convenient. Coco Cay was amazing!! I just wish we could have stayed there longer. Overall for such a short cruise this was really spectacular and I would do it again in a heart beat and recommend to anyone wanting a really fun short weekend get away. Read Less

The food was very good overall, there is a lot of variety and there are several restaurants that you can enjoy but that you will have to pay but prices aren’t bad. The rooms are very clean & spacious. Also they have a lot of thing to do for lots of different ages. I think you should definitely go. It was well worth it. There is lots of variety in music & there is a few adults only places which is good if you would not like to be around kids & also lots of ways to win free items & money. The process of getting on & off the ship is awesome & good thing is that I was able to travel without a passport just with my drivers license & my birth certificate. Read Less

I saw a negative review, i believe they sailed the same cruise we did. I did not have the same experience and felt it worthy of a positive review. We have cruised Royal Caribbean since the 90's and have never been disappointed. This cruise to the Bahamas was perfect for 2 kids under 11. The water slides on deck 13 entertained them all day. The food was what i expected, decent and ample choices. The dining room was nice and service was fantastic. We had a balcony room and the space was tight for 4 people, but who stays in their room... Coco Cay was amazing, the kids thought this was the coolest. I have sailed many other lines and some were comparable to RCL, one was slightly better and one was absolutely horrible. While it didn't impact my trip nor was the service i received affected, several of the staff members complained about not getting time off and being overworked. We look forward to our next cruise on RCL. Read Less

Great price on a 5 night cruise with all perks! Truly unbeatable value. REALLY low crowds too!! We booked this only two weeks out for the cost if a value cruise line with NO perks like drink package or specialty dining. The crew is one of the best I've seen across the board. Bar service was outstanding...no premises drinks except at the pool with frozen ones...which were great anyway! Restaurant service and food quality was, in my opinion, a step up from NCL's already high standards. Our room steward was AWESOME....very fast and efficient...room pretty much stayed perfectly made. Low crowds made the cruise feel more like a luxury cruise! I can't recommend doing these 5 night cruises. before they go away enough....DO IT.

A weekend get away cruise for my Husband and I kid free! My husband pre checked in which you must do! We were on the ship in 5 minutes! We had an interior room which was great, I like the class shower doors, slept well with No windows and the room stayed cool. Plenty to do! Do not miss the Love and Marriage game show and comedy show if no kids. We did the sushi class, made 3 rolls! But have to eat there was stuffed! I hear a lot of complaints about the food not being good in the main dining room but we enjoyed it. Not a fan of Nassau just went and got a drink and souvenir and got back on ship. Did not pay for anything at Coca Cay enjoyed the beach and new pool, food was great, a lot of choices get the cheese sticks! Read Less

I seem to be one of the only people left in this world that have not been on a cruise and it was time for me to get away and enjoy some grown up time with my love. I had to get away from town so I would not think about work and I always wanted to see the crystal clear water. This ship was like a mini city on the inside! Absolutely beautiful with a team of crew members that worked together like a well oiled machine. I think I only encountered two that were not in a good mood, but I don’t know what’s going on in their lives right now so I can’t judge. Vincent took care of our room and made sure I had my extra pillows. He always had everything ready for us and would greet us with the most amazing smile. He will be going places some day. That is an amazing and kind soul. The wait staff at dinner was superb! We had the same table each night so we got to know our servers. The meals were more delicious then expected. The marriage show was funny followed by a an interesting comedy show. Great job Mariner Crew. I will definitely be back some day.... when I can afford the tickets. I have to be a good mom and bring my daughter (17 yr old) on the next one. Read Less

We chose this cruise because it was close to my birthday and my daughter and I decided to have a special holiday together. We left our husbands home and had a really terrific time. I would recommend this to any one. Our schedules, her work and my time was taking care of my elderly father did not allow us to have time for each other, so this was truly a very special time. It was a great love and joy bonding cruise. The embarkation and disembarkation were effortless. So much smoother than I ever imagined. Our cabin exceeded our expectations and we thoroughly enjoyed the balcony. We experienced the Teppanyaki Hibachi the first night and it was OUTSTANDING! Our Chef was hilarious and very experienced. We enjoyed the food in all the restaurants and cafe's and the desserts and breads were exquisite. The staff were so friendly and helpful. Manuel our room steward was so on top of things.

We book this cruise last minute. We were celebrating our 25th anniversary. Embarkation was smooth. We had a balcony cabin 0225 which was nice, but the location wasn't the greatest because we were under the pool deck and could hear the party at night and them setting up chairs early in the morning. Our room steward didn't talk much but was helpful and kind. The food was "ok" . We had a meal at Cagney's which was our best meal. We had had breakfast one morning in MDR and enjoyed the experience . The staff in the MDR were awesome!! We stopped in the Keys, Great Stirrup Cay and Nassau. We really enjoyed Great Stirrup Cay. When we stopped in Nassau we booked an excursion for Blue Lagoon. We really enjoyed our day there! Beautiful water and being able to see dolphins up close without having to pay extra. Disembarking was interesting. We did self assist and were some of the first in line. But they had a completely new process with passports. It was a facial recognition and it started messing up soon after a few people went through. Thankfully we were at the front of the line and were able to get off quickly. Not sure how it was going to go for others, cause it was SLOW. All in all a wonderful time! Read Less

This was our first cruise, definitely not the last! This was not the original itinerary, we were supposed to go to Cuba. Which that said, we got this trip. It turned out to be absolutely amazing! From the time we got on board it was great! The crew did an amazing job with everything! Our stateroom was very clean and stayed perfect the entire trip. This was our 20th anniversary and were taken aback with the fact so many of the crew knew this. The food was great, with exception of one dinner. The service was impeccable! We did have a few favorite crew members that made this a perfect cruise! I would recommend Norwegian for anyone has never been for their first time. Our favorite excursion, by far, was the cabana on Great Stirrup Cay. The view took our breath away! The service continued to be amazing. The food was outstanding!

Embarkation: We completed all our paperwork using the app prior to arrival which was really easy and took less than five minutes. The ship left out of Terminal A (Royal’s new terminal in Miami).

The facilities provided lots of variety in terms of both atmosphere and food options. The outdoor decks were nicely designed and included chairs, day beds, cabanas, and hammocks. It was really a nice change from the field of lounge chairs you see on Radiance class ships. We did notice some food service items which were left in the hallways throughout the cruise which was a little unsettling but other than that, the common areas were kept very clean. Dining: We did My Time Dining but enjoyed our waitstaff so much that we basically went at the time the Maitre’d assigned us so that we could keep the same table each night. The food was good and we felt like they had a better selection than our cruise a year ago. As I mentioned, our waitstaff Neftali and Ardvint) were amazing. They were the perfect combination of efficiency and hospitality. We were also travelling with our toddler so it was great to have some of the other staff like Jose (not sure what his job was, maybe an Assistant Head Waiter?) stop by each night to entertain the kid. Cabin: We had a great cabin. The Panoramic Oceanview room has a spectacular view and a good amount of space. Our cabin attendant, Georgiana was awesome. She would always make it a point to stop what she was doing and talk to us every morning and night, and by the end of our trip our daughter wanted to look for her every time we went out of the cabin. She really went out of her way to make us feel special. Entertainment: We didn’t go to a lot of the shows but we did go to iSkate the first night and it was amazing. The whole family enjoyed it and it’s definitely a can’t miss event. We also had several appearances by the Stowaway Piano Player. That’s a great addition and alway made for a surprise when the elevator doors opened and he was on there. As many other have said, the slides were available most of the week but the lines were ridiculously long so we never took the time to ride them. Ports: We stayed on the ship in Nassau and really don’t feel like we missed much. CoCo Cay really exceeded our expectations. We started out at the kids play area but decided mid-morning to go into the water park. They were charging $44 pp at the entrance and it was well worth it. We found that lines weren’t that bad in the morning or later in the afternoon. Seating around the wave pool, especially shaded seating, was at a premium. The slides were really fun and fast. Service: So, as the saying goes, “I’ve saved the best for last!” From Captain Angel all the way to the crew that goes around cleaning the ship, we found that just about everyone on board to be friendly and happy. Many went out of their way to interact with our toddler as well. The ship was nice but the crew is what made it special. Final Thoughts: We spent the last day (Sea Day) trying to figure out how to take another trip on Navigator before the crew turnover begins later this year. Need I say more? Read Less

We have cruised with RC several times and always had a good experience. Recently we cruised on Harmony and loved it. When an opportunity came to sail on Navigator at a bargain price we said lets take a chance. When you cruise in Sept or October you get the best rates since school is in session and its hurricane season. As far as the weather, you take you chances but we were lucky and had great weather. Navigator is an older ship but she is well maintained overall. The pool area just received most of a 100 million dollar refurbishment. The pool deck on Navigator is as nice as anything I've experienced and is comparable with the newest and largest RC ships. Food was very good. The restaurant servers were great and very accommodating. We actually preferred the food in the Windjammer by the pool because of the variety. We didn't do the specialty restaurants since this was intended to be a bargain cruise. Our cabin was an interior and overlooked the promenade. We loved it and actually preferred it to the balcony we had on the Harmony. The room was spacious and very clean with a great cabin steward. The cruise director was fantastic. Maybe the best we ever had and we've been on 15-20 cruises. The entertainment was good, but not up to the standards you get on the 7 day ships like Allure or Harmony. Overall it was good. The Quest game is X rated and if your not easily offended it's hilarious. Embarkation at the new Miami RC terminal was a breeze. You park in their garage and drop your luggage there. Disembarkation was the fastest and most efficient ever. We literally just walked off the ship without stopping except to have a screen shot of our faces at the kiosk. The RC Coco Cay island is the finest island resort stop ever. RC has turned it into a Disney style water park. It was a major highlight. I loved it and I'm not a beach person. The swim up bar is too cool, and the island buffet was great. Overall this was an excellent get away at a very good price. Read Less
