Review summary

This was our 4th cruise. 2nd on Norwegian. It was good. It wasn't great. As always the Norwegian staff was fabulous. They really do an excellent job of making sure your every need is met. I did not like the ports, St. Thomas, Tortola, and Nassau. For a 7 day cruise i would have liked another stop. We were late getting into Nassau so there was no point in going to Atlantis, not enough time to make it worth the money. When we went to the Buffet to eat we would have to wait forever and then run to get a table...not fun. The ship is not very well laid out, the spaces are not big enough for the amount of people that the ship carries. All the shows were sold out, and everywhere we were always jam packed. I won't do that one again.

Ship Quality

Cleanliness - the ship was immaculate. Design - was lousy.....just crowded, crowded, crowded, always a battle to find somewhere to sit, almost everywhere was always standing room only. That gets old.

Cabin / Stateroom

Once you have a balcony, you'll never go any other way!!!

Don't go on the Escape, go on the Jewel, much better ship!

If you go shopping, the locals love to barter, some of the things made there are beautiful.
