Dont be a full paying customer on Nowegian

Norwegian escape is a ripoff for fullpaying customers. Over half the boat was from Florida and they got rock bottom prices so they could pack the boat. Sea days are so crowded that at lunch we couldnt find a table and forget getting a lounge chair on the sun decks, everything packed with people with reduced fares they sell at the last week to pack the boat. Compare royal carribean 5000 passenger boat and no comparison. they both hold 5000 people but Royal Carribbean is 20-25% more tonnage. My last cruise on Norwegian.

Cabin / Stateroom
Great cabin, we spent a lot of time there in order to get outside seat.My son and family had 6 people and two room inside and couldnt get open lounge chairs on our three sea days. Ripoff for the price. Not bad if you have a large discount like all the last minute bookings. doesnt pay to buy in advance and pay full price

for the big 5000 person trips, try Royal Carribean , they have a lot more room and feel that they cater to full paying customers
