Thumbs down for NCL Escape

Sail Date: February 06, 2016

Reviewed: 1 year ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Balcony

Cabin: 1520?

Too big for our taste.

People got up at 6 am in order to to reserve a deck chair, by leaving a towel or a book on it. 

Impossible to move sometimes on the deck.

Pool was much too small for that amount of people.

Infants, toddlers, children and adults all in the hot tubs together. Disgusting.

Lines to get food.

Lines to get drinks.

Buffet food average.

Attendant leaning over my plate as I was eating in order to replenish cutlery container.

Slowwwww, elevators.

Itinary showed reservation that was for the previous night.

Sat for almost two hours in holding pen to get on the ship.

Discovered on Thursday that there was, for $100 a week, a private area away from the crowds and noise. This would have made all the difference.

Woke up by tables and chairs being moved around very late at night. We were on 15th floor.

At one point, checked flights home, just to get off this ship.

As a former travel agent, I would compare this ship to Carnival.
