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.

Shoreside splendor. by steveobx

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

I called this Cruise the shoreside splendor because we never left the dock. Because of this feature The Shoppes and the casinos were not open. Overall is a fantastic time aboard the ship is absolutely beautiful and smells brand-new. I would love to spend some more time on it and actually go somewhere in the future.I would highly recommend this ship and its sister ships the Bliss and the Joy to anyone who enjoys cruising on a gorgeous ship with lots of onboard amenities!

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.

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.

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.

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!

Encore Inaugural 2019 by StephersPeters

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

This was a 2 night inaugural in the port of New York so casino and shops weren't open. Overall the ship was fantastic. We had two days to explore most of the ship and while we weren't able to experience it all, most areas were at least open for viewing. Service and staff were very friendly and professional making you feel welcomed and the food was amazing. Definitely would sail again!

Blown Away by keljeanmiller

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

Wow! Wow ! Wow ! I was on the Inaugural Christening celebration. For starters Kelly Clarkson preformed as she is the godmother of this amazing ship! This sailing and event was amazing! I had to pinch myself to make sure this wasn’t just a dream ! The Encore is everything and more . Food did not disappoint. We ate and tried as many places possible in three nights. You can’t go wrong with any of the dining selections. Get ready to have the type of fun you will talk about for years to come because there is no shortage to what you can do onboard. Go carts , water slides, laser tag, shows, or just relaxing on the many decks and areas. Norwegian knocked it out of the park on this one ! The elegant, modern design is over a 5-star experience. Amenities galore! The design and layout very classy and simple. Private island was beautiful and if you want an adrenaline rush i recommend doing the zip line , if not grab a drink and sit back and relax ! Hands down my favorite vacation and i can’t wait to get back on this ship again ! I’d recommend for all ages and recommend as a must !! Thrill. Chill. Encore ! Thank you Norwegian!

Amazing Cruise on the Encore by laurieinba

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

Very relaxing is that not what vacation is all about. That’s the best compliment I can give to the Encore Staff. I did not want for anything.

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

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.

Wonderful ship for a first time cruiser by chettaj2019

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

If you are a drinker definitely take advantage of the beverage package as a free at see perk it is worth it. If you are a smoker the smoker's lounge is enclosed with no air flowing through and it is on the 8th deck. While in Great Stirrup Cay you can rent the cabana's. There are some that even have bathroom's and beds.

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.
