Excellent job all around by ship staff, all of whom were friendly, helpful and made certain that all needs were attended to in a timely fashion. The entertainment variety was excellent, from the Levity Comedy, to shows in the Atrium, as ... Read more

We have cruised with other cruise lines and wanted to experience NCL. The ship is huge but has organization issues. The main pool is a disaster. It is too small for a ship of this size. Lack of space for chairs around pool is ... Read more

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

In November, I cruised on the Epic and the Escape docked next to it. It looked so interesting with its rope course and water slides. When the opportunity arose to take grandsons on a vacation, I suspected this might be a good ship to ... 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

We stayed in the Haven and thusly were able to retreat to the relative quiet of the Haven enclave and our cabin. This contrasted with the pool deck where typically during the day the population was shoulder to shoulder in the pool, hot ... 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
