Carnival Liberty

March 2017 - Carnival Liberty to Caribbean - Bahamas

Carnival Liberty

A fun short cruise. Cruise Director Chris "Donkey" Salazar is one of the best. Love the Ocean Suites.  Well worth the extra money. Priority boarding & debark which is include when booking a suite is definitely a plus. Never had a problem finding lounge chairs on the pool deck. Only downside was the smoke smell in the casino.

Norwegian Escape

November 2015 - Norwegian Escape to Caribbean - Eastern

NCL Escape

Was not impressed.  Dining rooms were way understaffed.  Even though we had great waiters they were unable to do it all. Needed busboys and bar service staff.  Most people had the UBP and there was vitually no service on Deck 17. I didn't go on a cruise to have to stand in line at a crowded bar in the pool area to get my own drinks. One small adult pool for a ship the size of the Escape was inadequate.  Placement of deck chairs was extremely crowded. I have been on 23 cruises in the past on Celebrity, Royal Caribbean, Princess, Carnival, Cunard and the SS Norway and would rate all of those cruises way above this one. Not a fan of Freestyle. I prefer to see people appropriately dressed for dinner.  Slacks and collared shirts for men not shorts & tees.

I heard lots of people that had cruised on other NCL ships complain about the Escape. Even some of the crew was disappointed. I doubt that I would ever book another NCL cruise. Poor value for the money I spent.

JoanandJohn's Tips

Norwegian Escape Norwegian Escape - Don't book this ship unless you like walking on your deck chair to sit down, going to pool bar for your own drinks, mediocre service in the complimentary dining rooms, and crowds. Not nearly enough open space.
