Amazing Cruise

The wait for this ship was worth it. You definitely will not feel claustrophobic on the Encore. Getting on the ship in Miami was a breeze. We were welcomed by the crew with sparkling smiles. We headed to the ...

Nice time, but we will not be sailing an encore on the Encore

We chose Encore because it is new, NCL, and looked great. I read mixed reviews about the ship but went on with our plans. We sailed from Miami to San Juan, St. Thomas and Tortola. We had an ocean view cabin ...

Embarkation: Super easy and quick. We were early (second in line to wait for security) as we wanted to drop off our luggage and check-in prior to going to Pearl Harbor. Ladies and girls will get a beautiful orchid ...
