Norwegian Escape...all we wanted to do was escape!!

Sail Date: April 30, 2016

Reviewed: 1 year ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Balcony

This was THE worst cruise we have ever been on!!The ship is huge but oh so crowded.We saw lost crying kids(3 and 4 year olds),disruptive,rude and unattended kids all over the ship.Kids in the Jacuzzis for hours.There were really no quiet spots to sit and relax and maybe read for a bit.The music and announcements everywhere on board were so loud that you couldn't have a conversation with the person next to you.The pool area was miniscule.Finding a seat in the buffet area was next to impossible.Seemed to be a lot of "passing the buck" when it came to problems.Prices of sodas and adult beverages are OUTRAGEOUS!!!$9.00 for a beer???Lots of extra charges,from meals to shows.Thank goodness we had a great cabin and a super cabin steward!!They even sell a "party patch" so you can drink more but feel refreshed in the morning!!!Can you say Party Ship???!!!!We could go on but this will give you something to think about before you consider booking on the Escape...the best thing about the cruise was getting off!!!
