January 2016 - Norwegian Escape to Caribbean - Eastern
Norwegian is one of the few cruise lines that values solo travelers. They have designed cute studio cabins for solos at a lower price point than getting a regular cabin and paying for two passages. If you want, there is a solo travelers group which meets up in the Studio cabins lounge at 6:00 each night, which organizes dinners, shows, etc., so you can make friends for the week.
Escape is a great ship if you want an active vacation. I recommend getting up a 6:00 am and doing laps on deck 8 while you watch the sun rise. The ropes course is a challenge, and the water slides look great although I didn't go on them. No rock wall though.
The food in the dining room is pretty fancy--lots of seafood. I like things plainer, so I couldn't find much I wanted on the menu. But if you are a foodie I think you'll be pleased.
i do think it's a mistake to use the atrium for the game shows, etc. it's really not big enough to hold the crowd. They should use the theater instead.
