My favorite NCL ship after 4 cruises with them. Perfect size, perfect shows, perfect food, perfect staff:) had an inside cabin (IX), bought a wine package aboard. There were a lot of fun activities. Eastern carribean stops where nice. I would go back on the Escape anytime

My group of 16 waited in line for 4.5 hours to board the ship. We stood in line on an asphalt parking lot in the Miami sun. We were not offered water or shade. We were not offered an explanation except to be told that due to the coronavirus the registration was taking longer than usual. Once inside, there were many open registration stations. We were approached by a woman in an NCL uniform who offered to move us to the front of the line if we gave her $20.00. I turned her down because we were nearing the front of the line already. Not a single ships officer was present to welcome us once we got on board! I reported the bribery and the entire debacle of embarkation to the ships captain and hotel manager. I did not get a satisfactory response. We will never travel with NCL again.

We took our third NCL cruise for our honeymoon and were pleased as usual. We upgraded to a balcony and had plenty of space along with the view. The crew goes above and beyond for anything you need. The food options were plenty and the italian restaurant is our favorite! There were plenty of seats at the pool. The entertainment of this ship wasn't our favorite but it was still good.

My family and I went on the Norwegian Escape, and had a fantastic time. The service was nice and friendly. The ropes course food and drinks were fantastic and everyone in my family liked it. The entertainment was great and we were never bored. Also, the activities are fun like the gorilla ropes course. Lastly, the water park was amazing and had some great slides. The aqua racer was our favorite! I would really recommend cruising on the Norwegian Escape with NCL!!!!!!!!!!

We took advantage of Norwegian’s super promotion last fall for a cruise this February. We opted for a balcony and truly enjoyed it. We were able to go outside when we wanted in total privacy. The main dining room food as well as the buffet was always top notch. We dined at Cagney, la Cucina, Bayamo and teppanyaki specialty restaurants. All were exquisite. Unfortunately we weren’t able to dock at Costa Maya because of high winds and 12 foot waves, but that was not the ships fault. This was our 2 cruise with Norwegian and we look forward to sailing with them again.
