Norwegian Escape

November 2016 - Norwegian Escape to Caribbean - Eastern

Cruise to Virgin Islands

My favorite part of the cruise was seeing NCL improving accommodations throughout the ship (Escape). Although very large and crowded, this newer vessel offers greater variety of restaurants and venues, and the rooms are modern and a little more spacious. This cruise is great for families with young adults. There are many fun amenities (i.e., water slides, sports complex with zip lining, mini-golf, etc.). The only thing I would recommend NCL to modify is the number of stops. The cruise stopped in St. Thomas (USVI), Tortola (BVI), and Nassau (Bahamas). The sea days (4) is one too many. I would suggest a stop in St. Croix (USVI) and/or San Juan (PR). And, if you are a Latitudes member you get embarking and disembarking preference, which proved to be very advantageous (the ship was sold out, 4,000+ and we still managed to get out in less than 35 minutes including customs!).

Norwegian Jade

August 2014 - Norwegian Jade to Europe - Eastern Mediterranean

Fun in the Greek Isles

The cruise was great, but the excursions were too short. Although we spent considerable time at each stop, we could have seen a bit more had the tours offered by NCL be more comprehensive. For example, our day in Mykonos included a morning tour (4 hours) without the option of an afternoon tour (extra 4 hours to spend in town). Had NCL combined tours, we would have been able to see or learn a lot more. The same can be said about our visit to Santorini. NCL crew members are always great, but the Art Show was not as pleasant as we had experienced on previous cruises (Art Staff, particularly the auctioneer) were too pushy and a bit condescending. Our first visit to the Blue Garden Cafe resulted in extended wait, only one person to serve all of us, and poorly prepared food. I would do it again, but NCL needs to look into these issues.
