Good cruise but make reservations for dinner, shows and excursions immediately. by marysanborn

Sail date: / Traveled as: Large Group
Ship: Norwegian Escape / Destination: Caribbean - Western

Rooms were good and the upkeep was excellent. Reservations need to be made far in advance to ensure you get seating at restaurants, theater seats and excursions. Bartenders were exceptional in getting drinks to people and ensuring people were happy. The pool was filled with people of all sizes and ages and all were having a good time. The only exception was they did have a contest for Mr and Miss Biceps. It was very sexist. The women were told they had to bump and grind in the men’s faces and on their bodies where the men did not have to do it at all. This was very disturbing to me and I would urge you to discontinue this kind of sexist behavior by the staff.

You are not so special - just like this cruise line by Dacruiselife

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Norwegian Escape / Destination: Caribbean - Western

My criticism is genuine and in no way reflects the effort by the hard working crew members who actually put in effort. We have had a much more pleasant experience on other cruise lines, but this wasn't horrible just not worth the extra cost. If we pay more, we expect higher quality. Did not experience higher quality overall. Service of restaurants needs improvement, friendliness of staff needs improvement, improvement of communication (could not hear announcements in our room), safety drills were indoors (essentially showing how to put on a life vest).

Good!! Could have better! by golferbill2000

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Norwegian Escape / Destination: Caribbean - Western

Overall we had a great time! This was our 4th Norwegian cruise and our 17th overall. We have been on big ships with other cruise lines that we enjoyed much better, like Oasis of the Seas. I think we will stay with the smaller ships when we cruise Norwegian in the future!!

terrible by intunemusic

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Norwegian Escape / Destination: Caribbean - Western

Okay, i'm not a winning person that nit picks on everything but seriously there are so many options and cruise ships out there so really do your homework. Save your money and do not give it to Norwegian. Very unorganized and seem to have no skills when dealing with people and situations. We spent a lot of money and it was not even close to being worth it but will they care if you enjoyed your trip, no they got there money. I will never cruise with them again. I hope someway they work to improve customer service and organizational skills. If you really want to enjoy your trip book it with another cruise line.

1st timer by cardwind

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Norwegian Escape / Destination: Caribbean - Western

This was fun, we were celebrating our 50th Wedding Anniversary and hoped this would be a great memory. I must say it was ok not great. A cake was provided to us because of our Anniversary, a discount at the Thermal Suites or Spa would have been nicer. For our 1st Cruise we are not sure this is for us, maybe destination trips would be better.

Winter Escape by tbird1026

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Norwegian Escape / Destination: Caribbean - Western

Would rate three out of five stars based on overcrowding on ship, inadequate space in public areas, and gross understaffing at bars and lounges.

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Norwegian Escape / Destination: Caribbean - Western

Big ship, average to poor entertainment, good food. Pool facilities are lacking for a ship of this size.

Experienced cruiser- wouldn't go again by carolynbarcus

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Norwegian Escape / Destination: Caribbean - Western

A cruise is what you make of it. Yes, we didn’t care for this boat, but it was warm and we were out of the cold!! We would not go again on this boat.

Amazing! by kerrydaponte

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Norwegian Escape / Destination: Caribbean - Western

Overall we had a great week with great friends. The couple that came with us had never done a cruise and wanted to book the next one before we even got off the ship. Amazing vacation!

Feels like there is a loss in quality by prfreal

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Norwegian Escape / Destination: Caribbean - Western

Overall the cruise was very good. I like the cigar lounge on the escape. The food was just disappointing. We were on the same ship a few years ago and it was so much better.

Not like last time by jdcjz1986

Sail date: / Traveled as: Large Group
Ship: Norwegian Escape / Destination: Caribbean - Western

We chose this cruise because of the positive experience we had last time on the Escape. Not even close to the service and food as last time. We travel as a group and everyone felt the same way.

Wish it was better? by jabberwocky08

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

Overall, I wish I left this vacation feeling excited and energized by the ports and amenities on the ship. I just felt underwhelmed, honestly. Things were just fine, but nothing to write home about.

Beyond amazing! by bradwayh

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

We’ve been on cruises before, but staying in The Haven far exceeded any other cruise. Yes, it is a bit more expensive, but it makes for an exceptional relaxed vacation. Having two bedrooms was also a plus and gave each of us our privacy. The staff is also amazing. I don’t think they know the word “no” and they are always happy and helpful. Some of them even called us by name!

A nice Time by aklein40

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

We wanted all 5 of us to go, but could only get a room for four. The ship is quite large, and there was lots to do. We found the additional amenities to be quite expensive, especially the photos. The food was good and, of course, plentiful. Naturally, it was difficult to find seats by the pool, and the late night dancing was definitely for younger, more fit cruisers. I think I like a more traditional cruise with dining times, free shows nightly, and more formal attire on a couple of evenings. All in all it was an enjoyable experience.

Western Caribbean on a fairly new ship by Love2cruisexoxo

Sail date: / Traveled as: Singles/Friends
Ship: Norwegian Escape / Destination: Caribbean - Western

Overall, being on a new ship is great. Rooms were nice and clean. Lots of dining options and bars. The spa thermal suite is amazing and worth the cost for the spa pass.

This was my 28th cruise. I have had better voyages. NCL is adding too many up-charges. by gletizia

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Norwegian Escape / Destination: Caribbean - Western

Honestly, I would not do this cruise again. In fact, I wish we had taken a different cruise line. NCL is nice but the uncharges are getting ridiculous. We are sailing on NCL's newest ship, Encore, in August - 10 of us - base cost for 4 balconies will be more than $20,000. The ship has a lot to offer, but at additional fees. We are expecting that it will cost at least another $5,000 in excursions and onboard activities.
