Amazing week on the Escape

Sail Date: August 06, 2016

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Balcony

The Escape is a beautiful ship. The shows were great and we enjoyed all of the restaurants, complimentary and specialty. The Garden Café was great for a quick breakfast, lots of choices and very tasty. Embarkation was fairly quick and easy to get onto the ship. An area for improvement would be in the pool area. It's quite crowded and hard to get a good chair by 10:00 AM. Sadly, lots of chair hogs. The nightly entertainment in the Atrium area is very fun to watch and a great way to spend time waiting between dinner and a theater show. We truly enjoyed our vacation and look forward to sailing again.

Cabin / Stateroom
The shower area is a bit small, a little hard to shave legs, but the shower head that comes down is somewhat helpful. We used the balcony each morning, which was very enjoyable. Our room steward, Michael, was excellent and our room was always in excellent shape.

Lots of vendors on Orient Beach asking every few minutes if you'd like, massage, braided hair, aloe, clothes. They would not take no, thank you for an answer. Made for a non-relaxing day.

A tip for this ship would be to use the stairs when at all possible. Sometimes the waits for the elevators can be long. You can usually get to where your going much faster by taking the stairs.
