Norwegian Escape

November 2016 - Norwegian Escape to Caribbean - Eastern

Way more than we expected

Wife and I decided to try NCL for the first time to celebrate my 60th b'day. Confess we were a little concerned with many of the reviews about being crowded, noisy and even recent bouts of noro-virus. Well, it was a blast!

GOOD:

Embarkation- a breeze, 10 minutes to get onboard.

Debarkation- well organized, a breeze to get out, we were lucky customs was not crowded. 20-25 minutes from ship to pick-up area

Service-excellent, courteous and friendly

Cabin- comfortable and adequate storage space, but for two people. Bathroom was real big and shower awesome

Food- From excellent to good, we had the specialty dining package and all were excellent except Cagney's. Don't go if you have to pay.  Buffet was crowded at times, food not great, but acceptable if you are in between meals

UBP is the best part, no receipts to sign, mostly all is covered and plenty of bars around the ship.

Entertaiment- From excellent to regular, depending on age and tastes. 

Beatiful ship, Waterfront is in a class by itself

BAD:

Pool- well, tiny for such a big ship, very crowded and noisy, lots of drunk people. (if you definetely must go, well so be it, but there are plenty of choices and secluded areas with hot tubs to relax and enjoy)

Casino is an open concept, so there's a lot of smokers and it spreads to the whole deck 7, up to 8 and down to 6. 

Overall, for us it was a really good experience. Probably will do it again.
