We really enjoyed the freestyle cruising. We liked being able to change things up each night. The specialty restaurants were fantastic. We really enjoyed the steakhouse Cagneys. There was lots to do and my young adult children loved ... Read more

Norwegian Escape is a very large ship. It was very crowded on this particular cruise. The ship is modern but not elegant. The food was plentiful but of low quality. Meat was mostly chicken and ground beef or stew . Very rare lamb or steak. ... Read more

We decided to book this cruise as our anniversary vacation. The fact that it was "Open Bar" didn't hurt either. Before we left, i read reviews from past passengers and was worried based on what was written. However, it wasn't ... Read more

We went for a friend's 50th Birthday. I had special food needs and requested it from the cruise line over a month before the cruise. It was poorly planned by the cruise line and poorly executed. The wait staff never asked if anyone had ... Read more

This was our first cruise and will not be our last. We didn't particularly choose the ship, just where we wanted to go, but dropped lucky. We booked the excursions and restaurants prior to departing and it was really easy using the NCL ... Read more

This was my 1st cruise ever & my 30th birthday cruise. I went with my boyfriend which has cruised in the past with Carnival. Our embarkation was ok, it was not quick but we weren't in a hurry. Just very hot. Once onboard very friendly ... Read more

Sorely disappointed in Norwegian, who position themselves at the higher end of cruise lines. Service was rude and slow to put it mildly, and they allow children to literally run wild all over the ship, not just near the pool where you ... Read more

I loved my experience on this cruise. Several things made it above and beyond the three other cruise lines I have experienced: 1. My child's peanut allergy was put into the system and every restaurant proactively took precautions to ... Read more

Grabbed this cruise once Norwegian announced that it had Cuba sailings and then nervously anxiously waited to see if political changes would stop our plans dead in their tracks. Thankfully they did not and our whole family is so grateful ... Read more

This is a short cruise - but popular because of Havana. There are a great number of reviews for this 4-day cruise which cover pretty much of the territory - so I will limit my thoughts to a few key points. As with my other reviews, I ... Read more

Quick get-away to Cuba, before things change here in the STATES. Could have spent more time in Havana. Very friendly people, don't necessarily book Old Havana tour on board. Use the friendly Cuba people, who knows the building & ... Read more

We chose the Sky because it was stopping in Havana overnight and we thought we should get to Cuba while we still can. It's been on our bucket list for a while so we decided to go for it. We are glad we did! After a dozen cruises, this ... Read more

This was definitely the worst cruise I've ever been on! We love cruises for the service and entertainment, but this lacked both! All the music at ALL the venues were too loud to enjoy. We are in our 40s and love to sit and enjoy music, but ... Read more
