We are a couple with two boys ages 13 and 15. There was plenty to keep us busy on this cruise. The food was very good- excellent including the buffet. We loved O’Sheehans restaurant that was open 24 hrs, as we are a family of night hawks, lol. The boys looked forward to late night wings and nachos and we really miss it now that we are home. We really liked the Freestyle dining and not rushing to ...

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 ...

I wanted to go on a cruise which had a lot of activities for my 7 year old. I choose Norwegian escape because it has a water park, mini golf and rope course. My son absolutely loved the rope course which has two zip lining circuits as well. We as a family enjoyed the rope course which is quite adventures and the water slides. They are other sport activities like bonce ball ,ping pong, soccer and ...

We went out of Manhattan Ny and I thought that would be a royal pain in the a.. but it wasn't that bad. We drove up at around 4 AM from south jersey on a Sunday and hit zero traffic. If you are parking at the port you will want to get there early. The ship was like all the other Norwegian ships, clean big and lots to do. I managed to get a deal on the haven suite which turned out to be the best ...

I choose this cruise because of the port of embarkation. The boarding process was horrific even though I had checked in online when I got to the port it was congested and I waited in line for one hour before being processed. Disembarking in Orlando took over 45 minutes standing in line again and some guests did not disembark as they were put off by the long line. The 3 restaurants onboard that are ...

I wanted a low cost cruise and I got it. The Escape has obvious design flaws, pools are too small and not enough elevators, and 6 hot tubs for 4000 people is not enough, but beyond that was fun time. The entertainment was really excellent and a lot to do. After Midnight was great and so was Choir of Man. The "side" shows Fab 4, the comedians and Kid Ace (magic) were also great. The water ...

It was a birthday gift, I just had to pay for excursions, amenities, ect. But little did I know it'd be as much of a pain in the butt, as it was a vacation. Boarding the ship initially was a chore, surprised they do this every week, during boarding, security stole my knives, even though they were allowed according to the prohibited items list on the website. I got a wonderful massage on the first ...

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 ...

We had an amazing time! Awesome cabin steward, room was very spacious although the sofa/bed where my son slept was not so comfortable--we didn't know until late in the week to ask the steward for something to help (our first cruise). Food was wonderful, private island was fun. Pool was too small and too crowded. There were actually 2 pools, one was designated for adults only and the child ...

We always cruise out of NYC, I cannot fly and the Port in NYC is fantastic. The pierside team was very helpful and the Port manager Kenny could not have been any more helpful. We arrived a little before 10:00 and were onboard by 11:00. This was our 7th cruise with NCL and 2nd on the Escape. We sailed one previous cruise with another line and were less than pleased almost to the point of not ...
