A encore experience by bigship123

Sail date: / Traveled as: Singles/Friends
Ship: Norwegian Encore

I had a great time on the ship. The food and variety of food was great, it was really top chef level of cooking and the service is surpurb. I have really nothing bad to say except for the disembark process is very slow.

Great short getaway by mgribov

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Norwegian Encore

This was an inaugural sailing, so we werent able to eat at most restaurants we wanted to, but that was the only bad part. Otherwise, our food was great, all our cocktails were good, we enjoyed going dancing and going to the shows, and the island stop was a perfect beach day. Would definitely go on this ship again.

Many things to keep you entertained on NCL's newest ship. by SeaMichael

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Norwegian Encore

This is my third time sailing with NCL. I've only ever sailed on these larger ships and love all the activities that keep you entertained for the entire cruise. Since it's a new ship some of the staff were still learning their roles. In the recreation area it seems like an employee would only work a position for 30 minutes or less before being rotated somewhere else, so in some cases the customers had to wait for this to complete. It was most noticeable on the slide where this happen twice. The food in the main dining restaurants was good and the staff were attentive. I'd certainly take another NCL cruise.

My very 1st cruise! by JVCruiser

Sail date: / Traveled as: Large Group
Ship: Norwegian Encore

I used to think cruise vacations were just for the elderly. I was wrong. I can’t wait to cruise again. So many dining, entertainment, and activities to choose from. You can’t beat the value.

Encore Inaugaural by faqfaq

Sail date: / Traveled as: Large Group
Ship: Norwegian Encore

Encore is the best Norwegian ship I’ve been on. The highlights for me were the speedway go carts, Tepanyaki grill and the beach day at Great Stirrup Cay. I would highly recommend this cruise.

Another fun Norwegian Cruise! by CruiselineMich

Sail date: / Traveled as: Family (older children)
Ship: Norwegian Encore

My second Norwegian Cruise was even better than the first. There is something for everyone! The thrills of race cars or virtual reality games or laser tag. Enjoy gambling in the casino or lounging by the pool or relaxing in the hot tub. From buffets, to casual restaurant to more upscale you can’t go wrong with your options. The private island had a lot to offer and Miami is always a fun time. All in all this was a great trip with beautiful weather!

A Great Autumn Escape by JBCruising

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

A great cruise on a beautiful ship. Every staff member I encountered was very nice. Everything was clean, the food was amazing, the room was the nicest I have been in. The private island was very fun. Good food there as well, and again, the staff was amazing. This was my first Norwegian cruise but I don't think it will be my last.

Great little getaway from Miami by sofit

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Norwegian Encore

Beautiful ship with plenty to do for everyone. Between laser tag, go carts, the VR arcade, musical shows, comedy, and dancing, I didn't have a moment where I was bored. Actually may need a vacation from my vacation! Wish there were more hot tubs!

Another great inaugural cruise! by CruiselineSarah

Sail date: / Traveled as: Singles/Friends
Ship: Norwegian Encore / Destination: Caribbean - Bahamas

Norwegian Encore is a beautiful ship with lots of good food and activities. Keep in mind that many of the dining venues and activities do cost extra, so budget for that when planning a cruise on this ship. Also remember to make reservations for specialty restaurants you want and activities that allow reservations ahead of time if possible.

Great Ship - Bad Weather by remcintire

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Norwegian Encore / Destination: Transatlantic

Originally ship was to sail from Southampton to Miami but NCL went to NYC for the publicity. Inaugural cruise was a great experience but traveling across the North Atlantic in November was not ideal. First two days were rough - 45 foot waves and 60+ mph winds. Out of 9 days only had about 1 1/2 days we were allowed on outer decks. Ship was only about 42% capacity which allowed empty hallways and elevators. Meeting NCL Escape in front of Lady Liberty was a once in a lifetime experience. Great ship bad route.

Corporate / booking not coordinated with ship's crew made for a rough start to our cruise by slwillson

Sail date: / Traveled as: Family (older children)
Ship: Norwegian Encore / Destination: Transatlantic

We hope to work with Norwegian to remedy the challenges we had on this cruise. I have always loved them and have been on 4 other cruises with them in the past and have another one scheduled for February. It would be a shame to waste our cruise Next credits due to the poor service on this one sailing, but we need to be assured Norwegian's greed isn't ruining the experience on the ship for us before we stress through another vacation. Cruises are typically the most relaxing vacations we have taken. This one was one of the most stressful :(

Maiden Voyage by dougstogdill

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Norwegian Encore / Destination: Transatlantic

It was fun being the first ones on a new ship. I am sure the outdoor activities will be very popular, just not on a transatlantic cruise in November.

Awesome Alaska Adventure by kathywarwick0

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Norwegian Encore / Destination: Alaska - Inside Passage

This trip was a celebration of 40 years of marriage and we had been looking forward to going to Alaska for several years. The cruise experience was everything we had hoped for and more than we could have imagined. A beautiful ship, fantastic crew, delicious food and we felt very safe with all the preparations and procedures related to COVID. Cruising in Glacier Bay National Park with the park ranger commentary was like being in a National Geographic feature film. All the excursion partners were excellent and we loved the fishing with our catch cooked for our lunch on an island in Ketchikan. We have traveled most of the US and this was truly our top experience in a breathtaking natural setting.
