WAY too crowed
"The ship is huge and beautiful. The staff was friendly and attentive. The food and drinks were great. There were many amenities but the lines were so long that we didn't even participate in some. There are 2 pools..."Read More

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 ...

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 ...

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 ...

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 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 ...

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 ...

We chose this cruise as we heard great things about Norwegian and it left out of our home port - New York. I thought this was a win-win for us. I was wrong. The ship was packed and every where you went there were massive crowds. Okay, I get that. However, you couldn't get a reservation for most of the specialty restaurants and the ones we did get - - Italian and Steakhouse were awful. We did ...

An old pal flew out from California for our first Girls' Week Out cruise. We knew we would have a good time, especially with Unlimited Beverage and Select Dining packages included. The difference between a fun vacation and our unforgettable experience proved to be a major upgrade. Initially, we had booked a Mid Ship Balcony cabin (size about 250 square feet) on deck 14. . . OK, but tight ...
