Wonderful time on a lovely ship

I find it interesting that people write negatives about the dining on the Escape because you  don't sit with strangers at certain dining hours. I love Freestyle, you can go early or late. The Specialty Restaurants are great. Cagneys is a top notch steak house. We ate there 3 times during the week. All of the others were equally good. It is well worth the dining package.

The ship holds 4000 people, but we never felt cramped. On 2 occasions I was the only person in the pool! The entertainment is top notch, as is the casino.

Have gone many time and will definitely stick with NCL.

Wish they would skip Nassau as a port. It is dirty and the people are not overly friendly. You walk on crumbling sidewalks and the cars practically run you down. The "straw market" is indoors with the sellers all hasseling you to look at their stuff.

Make your reservations for dinners and shows before you leave. You can cancel, but not always get the times you want once aboard.
