February 2016 - Norwegian Escape to Caribbean - Eastern
My yearly group of 20 to 30 cruisers desired to try a brand new ship and new cruise line for the majority of our cruisers. The ship was beautiful. The staff was helpful and friendly and tried very hard to please.. Those were the best two things about the cruise. The free dining experiences need tremendous improvement. The staff there seemed insecure in training, food wasn't desirable. If we had desired a variety of pay restaurants we would have stayed home and done so we chose the free dining. Entertainment in the theatres two shows was totally unacceptable in language rating and sexually suggestive. The first preview show was good ad well as the last night of staff performance, which was the best show. They could have saved a lot of their expense by letting the staff perform all week. Basically the 20 of us were bored and disappointed. The new ship talked to you in creaking all the time. I've never in my 20 years of cruising experienced constant swaying as was on this ship. It will be some time before we choose to try Norweigian with my group again.
