February 2016 - 7 Night Eastern Caribbean (Miami Roundtrip) Cruise on Norwegian Escape
Recovered from First Day Shock
This was my first cruise and the first day I wanted to jump ship. After we checked in where we had to wait for about 1/2 hour because we were told the system was down, we boarded. First there was the search for a seat at the Garden Cafe and then the sad realization that already there was no where to sit in the pool area. I was also bombarded with all the extra fees. Even though I had purchased a beverage package, a simple bottle of water was a charge. Complimentary entertainment was ver limited. I will say the food was good ( we paid for the dining pkg) and our balcony room was very comfortable and well maintained. I would rather go to an all inclusive resort like the Riu where everything is included and there are not money puzzles to figure out.
