Pre-Cruise Preparation- We put in for vacation time several months before the cruise and were targeting one of 2 cruises (GEM/Escape) that both left NY within a day of each other. I did numerous research and followed the prices. I like to book at least a month out so I have time to research the ports and plan excursions. We like the smaller ships but also wanted to experience a bigger one ...

When we decided to choose this cruise out of New York, we were a bit hesitant due to the size of the ship and location that we might feel overcrowded or find it difficult to navigate around the ship. The embarkation process was a breeze, perhaps made a little easier because we are platinum members, but the process was very organized and staff were very friendly and polite. The port was easy to ...

We wanted to get away before the holidays. The embarkation in New York was very quick and easy. The disembarkation was one of the best we hace experianced in a long time. The cruise line is getting better with this process. Our first stop in Florida was delayed by 3 hours due to injuries suffered by crew members, of course this was unavoidable. But because of the late hour of arrival (4:30 PM) ...

This was our fifth NCL cruise and first time on a big ship. Out last 14-day was on The Dawn, and that was a little small to keep us entertained. The Escape was so much different! From the moment we got on board to the day we left, there was so much to keep us busy! Here are some highlights: FOOD: The staff is Savor were some of my favorite on the entire ship. They always knew our names and ...

My wife and I booked the mini-suite on the 14 day western Caribbean cruise on the Escape. We were upgraded to the Haven forward-facing penthouse by bidding. The room was spectacular. This room entitled us to use the Haven courtyard, pool, bar and restaurant. First I have to acknowledge the Haven staff that made our vacation great. The two concierge, David and Nimfa, were always there for us ...

We chose this cruise at the last minute. We were given a guarantee room. I was nervous about this This ship was only 75% full CABIN We ended up in room 12647, an inside, mid ship room. When we first saw the room we were in shock. It was no bigger than a closet. The bathroom was fine. The cabin had little storage place. After the first shock, we got used to it. We are never in ...

December 2018 Hello, Here are my comments on my cruise: 1. The food was excellent at the Garden Cafe. The best specialty restaurant was the Cagneys. The Manhattan room was a very pleasant experience. However, we went to the Taste restaurant on December 3 for dinner and we were very disappointed because the service was very slow. 2. Houskeeping was impeccable. 3.Every day we went to ...

We try to cruise at least twice a year. We heard about this new cruise ship coming into New York, so we decided to try it out. We got upgraded from an ocean view to a balcony. Overall it was a great 14-day cruise. We noticed many rude passengers, not only demanding to the crew but to one another as well, very disappointing. The storage space is smaller than we've seen for similar cabins, and not ...

Just love the free style of the norvegian. But Norvegian Escape is above all because of its staff that are so so nice...and full of smiles. The only thing to improve would be the theater show. We didn,t have a new show every night. And the show Brat pack was not aim at the target travellers of that ship. Lets face it...the travellers on a ship cruise are mostly in the 50 and beyond so we ...
