The Great Covid Escape by jrud05

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

In summary, we had a great time! The staff went above and beyond to ensure we had a fun cruise. Stay away from the Q Smokehouse, and get those sea legs ready when on the Encore. Stop by the A List bar and grab a drink from Harvey and make sure to catch Choir of Man!

Ship: Norwegian Encore

Thank you Encore for everything ❤️ This was definitely one of my top cruises. ⚓️ The crew onboard this ship were nothing short of amazing. Between the non-stop entertaining and ensuring everyone had a great time! 🥳 Encore is norwegian cruise lines best and largest ship and it definitely shows. From entertainment to amazing dining rooms 🍰and specialty restaurants and not to mention the go carts 🏎🏎 This was my first ship since the pandemic and i’m loving the reduced capacity. 👏👏 Not having to wait in crazy lines or have trouble getting a pool lounger definitely spoiled me! I’m not to sure what my next cruise will be yet but it’s definitely time to plan again!!! 🥳🍾🐷

NCL Does it Again! by RyanC

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

Another outstanding cruise with NCL. This was our first sailing since the pandemic and to say we were excited would be an understatement! We stayed in the Haven Area which is a ship within a ship. Yes, you do pay a premium to be in this area but when we go on vacation....we go on vacation. Butler service, private pool area, private sun deck area, dedicated bar and wait staff, private restaurant.....you get the idea. Unique to this ship was the show "Kinky Boots" which we found to be entertaining. The cast was excellent and the show was funny albeit predictable. Also unique was Onda by Scarpetta which is an Italian specialty restaurant. Some photos from here are included. We were not all that impressed by Onda or really any of the specialty restaurants this go round. Not sure if the crew was still getting their "sea legs" or what but outside of Cagney's and the Haven Restaurant the service was spotty at best. Our ship also visited the recently renovated private island of Great Stirrup Cay. NCL and their competitors each have a "private" island in the Bahamas that they use as a port for most Eastern Caribbean sailings. At GSC for short they have a new area called Silver Cove and WOW! This area is reservable ahead of time in your cruise planner and we loved it. We stayed in a Lagoon Studio Villa for the day. It was air conditioned, had a private bathroom, and the service was spot on. Our villa, #125, was located right next to the Moët Chandon bar, talk about clutch! If you book an NCL cruise and it's stopping at GSC do yourself a favor and book one of these villas for the day. We are already looking forward to our next NCL cruise this summer and would highly recommend them to anyone planning their next getaway!

Awesome Alaska by Brennalu

Ship: Norwegian Encore

The trip was wonderful. Traveling to Alaska has its disadvantages but all in all it was beautiful. The glaciers we saw was beautiful. So close.

NCL is doing a fantastic job - the ship is beautifully designed, many activities to choose from, food is delicious, and the service top notch! Soon as we can, we are planning our next NCL cruise. As Latitudes members, we were pleasantly surprised and delighted with our gifts!

Chillin' Alaska Cruise Oct 21 by nclcruisin

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

Our last couple days on the ship were comprised of rough seas - 28 ft waves - and hurricane force winds - in excess of 75 mph. Ship was rocking and rolling up high. Bridge slowed our progress for safety purposes and we were a couple hours late getting into Seattle. Lots of folks were not eating much and looked a bit green, but even on Deck 15, we were just fine. Great job navigating us through the storms! And we've now got a great sea story to add to our repertoire ...

Amazing Alaskan cruise by tcgzhonold

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

This trip to Alaska was on my bucket list. NCL did not disappoint. The Encore is a beautiful ship with wonderful staff. The food was exceptional. A 5-star hotel on water. Couldn't have asked for anything better.

First time on NCL by momalong

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

Food was great, entertainment was great and the crew was extremely nice! Wished we had taken an earlier cruise, with it being the last one to sail and late October a lot of excursions were not available because they were closed for the season.

Couldn't believe how beautiful it was. by vickywagner

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

This was an awesome experience and have put down deposits for 2 more. Alaska was beautiful and I could not have asked for such a family and accommodating crew. I would encourage everyone if they can to take a cruise on the Norwegian. Loved it

Beautiful Ship but bad food! by msnfromlongbch

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

It was a really nice and exceptional clean Ship. Great entertainment, but most of all is great people who worked in the ship. Our main issue was the food in general. They need to invest more on quality and variety of Chefs who really have experiences creating many varieties BUT tasty food. If this is cruise in America, the Chefs should focus on how American like their food taste.

Great Experience Except the Mini-bar Overcharge by nomole

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

Already looking forward to many more NCL cruises. Will be prepared for mini-bar issues well in advance of last day. Thought I gained 10 pounds but only about 3, which I should have off soon!
