December 2016 - Norwegian Escape to Caribbean - Eastern
This was our first cruise with Norwegian. I had read many reviews (all very mixed, as usual) and was pleasantly surprised by almost all aspects of our cruise. The ship is very well-maintained (the Escape being their newest ship, as well) and was by far the cleanest ship we have ever sailed on overall! The food in every restaurant (even including the buffet) was nothing short of AMAZING. (I'm guessing those who rated the food poorly are among those type of people who are never happy until they've experienced perfection...which they never will!) =) The staff was friendly and always helpful. The entertainment and cruise director was top-notch and nicely varies to please every member of our group of 9 ranging in age from tweens, teens, and 40-somethings.
My only "complaint" would be that we noticed the side-to-side sway of this ship much more than previous ships, probably because of it's height. However, this was only a minor issue and would not sway us from cruising on the Escape again!
