Encore Experience by eckmary

Sail date: / Traveled as: Family (young children)
Ship: Norwegian Encore / Destination: Caribbean - Eastern

Family and friends vacation with multiple rooms booked. Communicating was critical for us with such a large party. We purchased the 9.95 package for texting and calls onboard. The service worked intermittently. Some could receive texts, but not respond, some could receive calls and others couldn't, some texts were delivered hours later. It was a real pain setting up the service initially. Definitely should be done before arriving on the ship. The beauty of cruising is that most of the entertainment and food was included with the price. This ship seems to limit the included items and emphasizes the fee related activities/food. I among others that I spoke with on the ship would prefer not to sail on this ship again.

Beautiful Ship / Lots of extra costs by cindylee17

Sail date: / Traveled as: Family (young children)
Ship: Norwegian Encore / Destination: Caribbean - Eastern

It was a really nice cruise. We did have a good time. If you are a smoker beware, there are only 2 smoking areas on the ship. One is a long box type room on deck 8 outside. The other is in the closed in smoking area of the casino. If the casino is closed, then you are stuck to the area on deck 8.

Great ship but small pool deck. by flynt1970

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Norwegian Encore / Destination: Caribbean - Eastern

Great ship,but the size of the pool deck is way to small. Not enough sun spots on the deck for the amount of people.

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple

Overall, had an OK experience. I have never sailed with NCL before, and I will most likely stick with Royal Caribbean after this experience.

Ship: Norwegian Encore / Destination: Caribbean - Eastern

Terrific week on the water away from nasty northern weather. Amazing floating city of a ship with something for everyone to do. Excellent entertainment!

Great cruise by hhwydom

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Norwegian Encore / Destination: Caribbean - Eastern

This was our 4th Norwegian cruise. We love the freestyle dining, casual atmosphere, food, and variety of activities available. We already put down a deposit for our next one.

Adequate but may not be cruising ncl in future. by Cruiseguy65

Sail date: / Traveled as: Large Group
Ship: Norwegian Encore / Destination: Caribbean - Eastern

We cruised Norwegian for the first time last year on the bliss and loved it. Convinced family to come with us on this ship. There seem to be kinks to work out on the corporate level and his ship feels like it is suffering from an identity crisis. I’d price out royal before committing to another ncl. It may seem more expensive at first but when there is a sense that the line is nickel and diming you at every corner with an extra fee and lack it reservations (we tried over 100 days out to book things and they were full), you might come out better paying for another company’s cruise.

7-night Eastern Caribbean by mcclellan147

Sail date: / Traveled as: Family (young children)
Ship: Norwegian Encore / Destination: Caribbean - Eastern

The cruising on the ship was great except for the lack of show availability. The choice destinations were good except for Tortola. I would go again and probably visit the western Caribbean or Mexico. The ship is beautiful with plenty to explore each day.

ANOTHER ENJOYABLE CRUISE by fricca

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Norwegian Encore / Destination: Caribbean - Eastern

Had a bartender argue with me over a drink he said I said one thing but I said another and kept denying I said what i said. Other wise all the bartenders were great. Also my wife and i thought the food was a bit salty.

20th Anniversary Cruise by brendam95751383

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Norwegian Encore / Destination: Caribbean - Eastern

We have cruised higher end lines and overall we were more impressed by the ship, staff, food and entertainment on this cruise than any others we have been on. We met people that we really believe will end up being lifelong friends. We overly enjoyed the Haven experience and would highly suggest it. We were celebrating our 20th anniversary and we had a spectacular trip!

Beautiful ship but costly especially entertainment for children like the speedway and galaxy room. The temperature of the ship was also too cold most of the time. The beach excursions are too short for the money you pay. Better off taking a taxi and st by tonya743

Sail date: / Traveled as: Family (older children)
Ship: Norwegian Encore / Destination: Caribbean - Eastern

Overall I enjoyed my cruise. Gained weight because the food was good. Alcohol beverages could have tasted better. Beautiful ship. Great ship for family vacations with teenagers and young children.

Brand New Ship - Best Cruise Experince by avsuit

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Norwegian Encore / Destination: Caribbean - Eastern

This was a last minute decision that was booked 2 weeks out. Everything about the cruise was good. The cruise before on another cruise line had kind of soured us on cruises, but this helped us regain our faith. We are already looking to book in the future with NCL. The concept of 30 places to hang out vs everybody in one central place really makes it feel more comfortable.

Huge Ship not for everyone by nmkt

Sail date: / Traveled as: Family (older children)
Ship: Norwegian Encore / Destination: Caribbean - Eastern

Overall rating is inflated...wouldn't give higher than 2.5; Not for large families or folks looking forward to slides, racetrack, pools-just too many people & too few operating hours to accommodate # of passengers; put off by the nickel & diming aspects-lots of extra charges for activities--mandatory "gratuity" on everything of 20%--whether deserved or not & not included in perks--ie, had to pay ~$400 gratuity for "free" dining/beverage pckgs even though also had "free gratuities" perk. Not a gratuity--simply another charge!--Be honest and at least put the daily charge in the original booking price. Having to reserve everything makes this anything BUT a "freestyle" cruising experience--way too Disneyfied now...will opt for much smaller ships and more all-inclusive pricing cruise lines in future
