Wow, don't know where to begin. First, because I've never cruised before, I thought the room would be small, no, no, no and no. The room had a queen size bed that looked and felted like a king size bed. I thought the bathroom was going to be small. No, no, and no again, the bedroom was average size with an amazing shower in it. The shower was equipped with a hand held shower head that was great. Also, I thought I would get sea sick, no, no and no again, the ship was like a city moving. Yes, I never got sick. I enjoyed all the activities on the ship. There were so many that I missed a few, but boy did I have a grand time. This was my first cruise and now I'm hooked. I looking into going again next year to another destination, but I'm going again on a cruise with NCL. The staff were amazing, they all went out of their way to make sure everyone had a great time. I loved it, and would recommend a NCL Cruise to everyone of my family and friends. Thank you again, NCL for an amazing time. Read Less

What attracted me to NCL was the fact that the cruise line did not charge a supplement fee for traveling solo. The accommodations for solo travelers was perfect in what they offered as far as the cabin and the solo lounge. NCL offered a solo facilitator to make your cruise enjoyable. From embark/disembark customer services, hospitality, entertainment, food, housekeeping, crew/staff, activities, beverage package, the price in general for the cruise, excursion, organization, ambiance, ports, itinerary, smooth sailing, port, the ship ESCAPE all in all EXCELLENT!!!! I would highly recommend NCL cruise line if traveling Solo. The cruise line has so much to offered. What I mean about that is coming out of your comfort zone. This solo cruise I was craving for so long and I have finally done it and that I will be doing it again in 2020. Couldn’t do one this year due to the fact that I moved. But from 2020 and there on, I will be cruising with NCL. Read Less

A pefect cruise for us and our two teenagers followed by a second trip with just us (sans kids). The Escape is a gorgeous ship and we signed up for use of the spa facilities which we really enjoyed. The Norwegian Escape is an amazing ship with an equally amazing crew. It was fun seeing Mr. Washy-Washy at breakfast. :-) Don't forget the evening crepe bar in the Garden Cafe - I think it's open around 9:30 pm. Dang, there is a minimum word count here so I can't leave a brief review - grrr! Ok, here is a bit from someone else's review that we agree with: Everyone is friendly and accommodating. They feature Guy Harvey on the hull of the ship and his art is also featured as well as his research channel so be prepared to learn about our oceans. The onboard activities keep you busy. The excursions offer you a wide array of options for things to do. You only need be bored if you want to. We've only ever cruised with NCL and have nothing but great things to say about them. The ship feels new and clean. Read Less

We chose this cruise based upon the ship. We wanted to sail on the Escape. It is beautiful and well cared for. The ship was spotless. Loved the layout of the ship with easy access to everything on board. The thermal spa pass is also highly recommended, I have never been more relaxed. Grand Cayman was beautiful and had a wonderful time. Nassau and Ocho Rios were just o.k., would have been better off staying on the ship and enjoying the Haven. The staff in the Haven are unbelievably attentive and professional. Can't wait to sail again, sorry to see Escape go to NYC. We bid on an upgrade for the Haven and our bid was accepted. Hats off to NCL, the bidding process made the anticipation of our upcoming cruise so much fun. We checked everyday. We likely would not have ever booked the Haven without the bidding process. WOW! Now will not sail any other way. Bid away my friends, so worth it! Read Less

the boat was beautiful, rooms were huge compared to others I've been on. was unhappy with cutomer service though.. had 3 unexpected things go wrong that they wouldn't or couldn't fix. 1. the Jamaica excursion was falsely advertised. It said Dunns river falls and glass bottom kayak tour. when we arrived it was not glass bottom, which was the ENTIRE reason we booked that excursion. I told customer service I was unhappy and she told me that no one else had complained. (so you think I'm lying since no one else complained??) Turns out after some bickering that the vrey last sentence in the long description of the tour says 'we no longer use glass bottom boats ' To me this is still false advertising because the title still says in bold lettering 'glass bottom' as well as my receipt. if you can go back and edit the last sentence in the description you could edit the title as well so that people like myself that don't want to hold up the line reading every sentence don't get kanoodled. 2. This is between the customer service and my travel agent, but we chose to have the extra 50.00 off of the excursions. I specifically asked my t.a. if I could use my 150.00 all on 1 excursion or if it had to be 50.00 off of 3. She told me they would just give me 150.00 credit on my bill at the end, that it wouldn't matter. WRONG..has to be 3 excursions booked through the ship, so i was shorted 50.00 credit as i onlt took 2 excursions... once again customer service had their hands tied, nothing they could do, no manager higher on duty to speak with me. Wouldn't you think that with a mix up such as this that they would find some way of giving on board credit to make a new customer happy? nope.. too bad, so sad. guess once again i didn't read the fine print. 3. I applied for the Norwegian credit card for another 100.00 on board credit. I was emailed the offer 2 days before sail date and decided why not, love cruising, it's our anniversary, we'll get the card and splurge a little. once again nope, no card in hand, no charges and No onboard credit, but if i fill it out a second time right now I'll get 25.00 credit and can charge without the card in hand, then just cancel the first card when i get home. what the what??

My best friend wanted to go to Jamaica. The cost of a hotel was the same as the cruise and we would be able to see more places on a cruise.. We both got the mini-suites for ourselves and our husbands. I Highly recommend the upgrade to a mini suite. The ship was very clean and dining was amazing. So many restaurants to choose from. We hung out on the 19th deck at the "Vibe Bar" and had a blast. Met lots of fun people and the bartenders were a hoot! We went on three excursions and were able to see so much of each port, which was very enjoyable. There was a special price for the spa we took advantage of, which was really nice. We were surprised though that the facility was not included with our treatments, so we couldn't use the pool, spa, or steam room before our treatments. That's an extra charge. Other than that, the cruise was smooth, fun and worth the trip. Read Less

My Husband Made all the Plans, I just showed up. He asked me questions, but my career has had me so busy i can't think, i just needed to get away. I Knew we booked an ocean view, caribbean 6 day. Upon Arrival, i was aghast, the ship was beautiful, i wanted more than anything to be in one of those beautiful balcony rooms, and said "maybe?" to my surprise, he already upgraded us, WOW This experience has set the Bar high, I do not think i will ever cruise without this luxury. Big Room, excellent service, The evening room clean & towel animal, having our private coffee and balcony--what a way to relax and unwind. OH WAIT, I am not even close to the BEST, our first day, we tour the ships SPA, and MY GOSH, SOLD! Buy the upgrade right now, do not hesitate, this is so worth it. We spent a min of 3 hours a day here, Salt Bath, Sauna, Not so Hot Sauna, AromaTherapy Steam Room, Snow Room, Rain Shower, Stone Body Shaped heated Beds, facing the front of the ship, best view of anywhere, plus your own private pool, with HydroMassage, and a jacuzzi too, little extra's, private locker room, and robes. If you need to Chill, This is your Place for Sure. I am NOT DONE YET, THE SPA TREATMENTS, Mani/Pedi Christine is an Angel-better than anything ever experienced at home, My Hair Blowout by Sheva, I felt as if i was in London getting my hair finished for the Runway, My Skin is challenging it is dry and tiny pores, but Angelique had no problems and was able to without pain, extract milia that people can never get. I had 7 acupuncture appointment for my Chronic Shoulder, and a solution remedy to come home with, told I am acidic/(at home we cant get it fixed), I am much Better, Dr Yi 4th Generation Chinese Acupuncturist is amazing. The Itinerary On this ship kept us so busy, we had a Blast at all the Game Shows, Sing A Longs, Movies, Bingo, Comedy Shows, Dance Evenings, Art Gallery and the Auctions, plus plus plus. Excursions: we signed up for every island, and they were fantastic, ontime, so polite, and helpful, educated us with the lingo, and history, i felt as if i was part of a family. Now about the food: I loved the "Free Style", this was my FAVORITE, we ate in every place that was part of the package, they were all amazing and fantastic. Walk up and in, never had to wait. One Night we chose to sit with another couple in the Manhattan Room for an experience, WE had a BLAST, laughed all night, great time. and there is a dance floor to enjoy while you eat, with live music. This was the Best Experience of My Life! I STRONGLY RECOMMEND everyone to go, and enjoy!!!! . Read Less

6 days was just right for the cruise. The NCL Escape has so many things to do for adults and kids. We were there when it was mainly adults and had a great time. Cagney’s steak house would be my only complaint. The filet was so so and the bar tender poured a martini in a regular glass. Unusual. The service could be improved. The Teppanyaki restaurant was great. Food was excellent, service was excellent, drinks were always on time. Cook was very personal and had a great vibe with his table. I recommend the drink package, it makes everything so convenient if you plan on cocktailing it. Well worth it. There is so many things to do on this vessel that waiting in line any where was never a problem. The staff was remarkable. They go above and beyond to make sure your vacation will be a memorable one. Washy washy. ( you’ll know what I mean when you take this cruise. ) Read Less

I went with a group of friends!The ship was amazing, lots to do and see, the food was excellent and enjoy the comedy shows and lots of other entertainment there was a singer in the Brewery that was awesome!! He put on a great show, and the couple who did the Beatles tribute did a fantastic job as well. The food at Savor was yummy and we went to the Food Republic and had some of the best shushi i have ever had and the cost was more than reasonable and the wait staff was amazing we had a friend in our group food allergies and they gave her special attention to make sure that her food was handled properly! The Garden Cafe had great food for breakfast and lunch and I am sure for dinner, but we didn't eat dinner there. I will be back to cruise with Norwegian!! Thanks to the crew on the Escape, hope you are enjoying New York!! Read Less

This is our first cruise so we didn't know what to expect. We were very pleased with the service the food the accommodations and the entertainment. We got the dinner package and we got the drink package. The drink package was nice to the top shelf Liquors and any kind of drinks you wanted to. There was one nice bar which is called the District which had about 15 different tapped beers. That was my favorite place. But it closes at midnight. We didn't do much in the casino maybe spend 20 bucks gambling. We spent a lot of time on Deck 17 by the poolside space just lounging and signing. We spent a lot of time in the spa area the thermal spa and the ice cave we're pretty cool and after that we are relaxed. When are the late fifties early sixties so The Nightlife really didn't entice us to stay up late. But we didn't take advantage of some of the shore excursions and our favorite was Georgetown Grand Cayman. I heard that this was the last Caribbean cruise the Escape was going to perform so in the future they will be coming out of New York to Bermuda. Read Less
