Not fond of this ship design

I wanted to experience a new mega ship and this one seemed right. I have sailed Norwegian several times and always enjoyed it. So getting right to it: Pros: beautiful decor and public areas. Food was very good overall and wonderful in the Specialty restaurants. Bars were plentiful. The two main shows, Kinky Boots and Choir of Man, were the best I have seen at sea. Staterooms were well designed ...

This is my first review on Cruise Critic (pardon the length - I hope this is helpful for those who are interested). Encore was my 7th cruise - sixth with NCL. This was Encore’s last voyage before the major cruise industry shut down due to COVID-19. On that note, kudos and appreciation to the crew who worked tirelessly to keep passengers and crew safe and healthy. Each day, we noticed ...

Initially we had an Asian destination cruise with Norwegian, that was canceled. We were able to secure the Bahamas cruise, departing in Miami. Everything about this cruise was great. The crew managed the increasing corona virus concerns well, and passengers were generally patient and understood. With the exception of two adult passenger tantrums we witnessed, that I must say were handled very ...

First Time Cruiser • Age 70s

I have wanted to take a cruise for many years. There were four in my group. My sister and I were in a balcony cabin near the center of Deck 10. My brother and his wife had an inside cabin on the same deck. My sister and I chose a balcony cabin to take advantage of the 5 "free" offers: airfare, 250 internet minutes, Premium Beverage Package (unlimited drinks up to $15 each per day), ...

We chose Norwegian Encore for two reasons: we wanted an Eastern Caribbean itinerary and had to book last minute. The quality of the food and entertainment were great. Probably some of the best food we have had on a cruise anywhere. However, we found several major issues that will keep us from ever booking with Encore again. First and foremost, the pool area is so cramped and small that even ...

Now we are at Day 7 and will disembark tomorrow. I feel like I have to write something before I go. This is our second time cruising. The first time was with Regal Princess and everything was just fine. This time we are looking for something more thrill and exciting, so we chose Norwegian Encore. The ship itself is super new and beautiful, and the design of cabin is modern and simplistic which ...

One of the worst sailings

This sailing was 2 days after my wedding and it was one of the worst I have been on (this was my 10th cruise). The food in the specialty restaurants and buffet were great.. The free dining areas (sit down).. service was slow and the food, in my opinion, was better in the buffet. We were sailing with our 3 children (6,5 and 1) everything for them to do, was an upcharge.. the go carts, laser tag. ...

I was cruising solo(but meeting friends) and Norwegian is smart to offer solo cabins which are private and have their own key entry and lounge. The lounge was misleading as the description leads you to think alcoholic beverages are available which they are not. But... Gratefully, there were not a lot of young kids onboard as we were able to do laser tag and the go-karts with no problem of ...

We chose this cruise because we liked the date, number of sea days, and thought it would be fun to be on a new ship. We were not disappointed. I will get into all the good stuff later but will cover what we did not like. At check in we were not given a ship map which is unlike our other NCL cruises. We solved this problem by going to guest services once we got on and got one. We do not like ...

We were on back to back. the first week we were in a two bedroom Haven Suite. Cannot say enough good things about our experience. Food and service in The Haven is excellent. Only suggestions, the Haven pool is not heated and was not used all week. The Haven observation lounge does not have a bar in it and was seldom used. Second week, not so great. Haven was booked so we had a mini suite on ...
