Norwegian Escape

December 2016 - Norwegian Escape to Caribbean - Eastern

Too many Children running wild on ship!!!!

There were pros and cons....

 Pros- easy, fast embarkation and debarkation!! An excellent bartender at the "5 o'clock somewhere bar" by the name of the chocolate cowboy. He was excellent, knew everyone by name and remember the small items everyone liked in their drinks, very nice!!

 

Cons- there were over 2200 kids on this ship, un-attended, uncontrolled, no curfew, loud kids running wild all hours on this ship, I am talking about 9 yo and under!!!  The garden café was a nightmare, a freaking busy highway, dodging strollers, screaming kids, kids under 9 serving themselves at the buffet where they can barely reach and after picking their noses!!!  Kids playing with the soft serve ice-cream machine!!! No parental guidance at ALL!!!  I personally witnessed 2 small boys in the atrium throwing the pillows off the couches and having a pillow fight while the mother just sat thee and nearby staff ignored,,, I am sure it is all fun and games until someone gets hurt!!! No control at all!!! Kids in restricted ADULTS Only areas in the hot tubs!!!   No one said a word to their parents.... heck as if people without kids did not matter!!!! We work all year long and would like to relax on vacation not have to put up with someone else's brats!!!!!

 

The skyline club only played latino music every freaking night!!!!! Spice H20 only played fist pumping, jump around music for the tweens and twenty something crowd.. everyone else they could care less about!!!!

 

DJ played at the 12 x12 pool area daily with the lounge chairs reserved with shoes, towels, baby dolls and phones early in the am with no one around, they were probably eating breakfast or went back to bed... but hey we got our chairs reserved for whenever we decide to go to the pool area!! please NCL set rules and watch this...ENFORCE THEM for the enjoyment of all of yours PAYING customers instead of a select few!!!!

 

DJ needs to get out more and know that their all types of music instead of the 2 genres he played during the 7 day cruise!!!!

 

Never seen the cabin stewart all!!!!

 

First and last New Year's eve cruise I will ever take... considering cancelling my other 2 NCL cruises that were already booked!!!

Oasis of the Seas

May 2014 - Oasis of the Seas to Caribbean - Eastern

beautiful ship but poor service

We were on the Oasis of the seas ship, ship is big and beautiful but the staterooms were cut alot smaller than some of the other smaller ships that I have been on. I could not fully unpack my clothes because of not enough storage space and there was only 2 of us in our balcony stateroom. The bathroom was even smaller and the bathroom sink was a joke. Royal Caribbean should have cut some of the space in other venues and made their staterooms more comfortable to stay in. Also the crew members actually acted like they really disliked their jobs. They gave the impression that you were bothering them when you asked them anything and even the bartenders were unhappy and I know that the cruise lines make most of their money selling alcohol and the employees that were in charge on selling drinks were unhappy and drinks were inconsistent. Really how hard is it to make a strawberry daiquiris! Royal Caribbean Cruise Line need to educate their staff on policy and procedures because every crew member I asked the same question to gave completely different answers. They messed up our dinner seating arrangements and I was booked out a year in advance. Most of all if traveling with children even though someone in our group had a passport for their children and we have traveled numerous times with other cruise lines without a problem, Royal Caribbean said they needed their birth certificates and custody papers in which custody of the kids wasn't even a factor. But although they had their passports the had to have their birth certificates emailed to them before they were allowed to board ship and then we found out that that our dinner arrangements were messed up. Also food choices were limited and the quality of food was poor. I felt nickeled and dimed with everything you had to pay extra for on this cruise line compared to other cruise lines I was on a daily the quality wasn't even there at all. I would never cruise Royal Caribbean again!

Nowowfactor's Tips

Norwegian Escape Norwegian Escape - Think twice a about the Escape... the Getaway had a lot more energy and diversity of music, entertainment and much friendlier staff!!!
Norwegian Getaway Norwegian Getaway - Get the specialty dining package!!! Cagney's steak house and Teppanyaki was EXCELENT!!!
Oasis of the Seas Oasis of the Seas - If you travel with young children even though you have their passports still take their birth certificates with you to save your self alot of undue problems boarding even though we called royal Caribbean Celine ahead of time as their staff told us that all we needed was their passports. .well all me
