This was a Cruise itinerary we always wanted to do. We went for the fall foliage. The sites were beautiful This ship was heaven on earth. So much to do. What a wonderful way to live the adventure at Sea. A must ship to try. The ship had wonderful Nightclubs, Eateries and Shows. We enjoyed Albano Venditiit- our very own Piano man at the District brew house nightly. The shows were ...

Because of the Hurricane in the Caribbean, NCL moved their eco cruise presenters to our cruise. We had Dr. Guy Harvey, whio is a marine biologist and the artist who designed the hull art for the Escape, on our cruise. My husband and I attended every lecture and presentation by Dr. Harvey and his other marine scientists on board to learn about their research. We found it fascinating - how they ...

This was our first cruise on NCL. We booked this cruise almost a year and half before the sail date. We had not been on a cruise in approximately 10 years, the last cruise being on a different cruise line on a ship half the size of the Escape, but friends of ours really wanted us to go with them on this ship to New England and Canada and the itinerary and time of year sounded great. Because we ...

This was our first time cruising with NCL. Embarkation and disembarkation went smoothly from the ship. The terminal was another story. The ship was big, beautiful and clean. All of the staff (except one) we encountered throughout the entire week were excellent. They we courteous, friendly and accommodating. We got a mini family suite and the room was a decent size for 4 of us. The USB ports were ...

We traveled on the Norwegian Escape for the third time this year last week departing from NYC going to Canada and Maine. Obviously we love his ship because 1) the friendliness and service from the entire staff on the Escape, 2) the food is exceptional, 3) the entertainment, 4) the thermal SPA, 5) the Ship, there is always something to do and there are many quiet zones to go an relax. Now there is ...

The trip was definitely uneven starting with the loading process. We waited online for about 1.5 hours to get on the ship and found that most of the employees were not helpful at this point until someone complained to management and they came and started to direct the lines. If all of your paperwork is printed out, there is no reason that people should take more than 3-4 minutes at the counter. ...

We have sailed on 22 cruises decided to take in a little cold after the hot summer we had in Maryland. We got a great Casino price so we took this one. This was our 5th NCL Cruise in the past few years. The Ship is beautiful and clean. Staff was wonderful. Cabin was to small, we opted for inside since the temps would be to cold for BC tried to bid to OV but none was available. Dining was just ...

Too crowded at times, not personalized, nothing out of the ordinary. We normally have at least have one night where lobster is offered in general dining on cruises with other carriers and it was not offered on NCL. We feel that NCL pushes specialty dining a lot to make more money rather than put money into regular dining. Regular dining was good, just not exceptional. We did always go to buffet ...

We chose this cruise because we wanted to go to Bar Harbor Maine. We like sailing out of New York City. We were on the ship by 11:45 am. The ship was completely full and many times this presented a problem. There was plenty to do on the ship with the entertainment being the best. I was happy that the casino had a non smoking section. The food at the restaurants was hit or miss. The only extra pay ...

We were on the September 8th to the 15th cruise out of New York. Because of hurricane Dorian the Escape was delayed coming back. Celebrity's ship left Bermuda with them and had no problems getting back so I don't know why the Escape was so delayed. We were notified about the delay and were told to arrive after 4 pm. So many people we met were not notified about the delay. Embarkation was a ...
