We just returned from he Caribbean on the NCL Escape From beginning to end it was one of the most enjoyable cruises. Our balcony cabin was in a great location on deck 9 close to the waterfront on 8 and all the entertainment. Lots to do on the ship and the entertainment was first rate. The After Midnight show and the the Cats pajamas show in the supper club were wonderful. The comedians were some of the best and most talented performers. The Howl at the Moon and all the pianists on the ship were very accomplished and entertaining. O'Sheenans pub had terrific prime rib wings and breakfast. Moderno and Le Bistro had wonderful selections and the food was well prepared. The ropes course is a must do and Virgin Gorda in Tortola and Paradise Island in the Bahamas were memorable excursion destinations. The staff on the ship did everything to make our trip enjoyable and memorable. We gone on several cruises with NCL and will go on many more. This ship is a beauty!

Cabin / Stateroom
At first I was worried that we would here noise from the rear engines, we didn't. Our balcony was extra large and cabin seemed bigger than usual. Quiet location, close to easy access to specialty restaurants, the waterfront and entertainment. Best thing about our cabin was our steward Junnel Tubesa

As above
Service and Staff
Junnel Tubesa was our steward he was thoughtful, attentive and always trying to make our trip special.
Food and Dining
All the food was terrific avoid the buffet too crowded and the Teppenayki Grill show is good food is overcooked. Be sure to stop at O'Sheenans and Moderno and Le Bistro.
Miami, Florida
Visit Jungle Island stay at the Marriott Key Biscayne near the port park at the church across the street cheaper than hotel

We did the hike snorkel kayak excursion. A little too much kayaking, hiking ok snorkel ok People were nice who led excursion but pick something else
Tortola, British Virgin Islands
Go to Virgin Gorda awesome bring your own snorkel gear
Nassau, Bahamas
Stop at the casino Paradise Island


Make show reservations asap as well as specialty restaurants. There are over 4000 people on this ship. Don't miss the comedy club! O' Sheenans has prime rib almost very night so you can always have that. We hear from other passengers that Cagneys was not as good.
