Norwegian Escape

Sail Date: October 15, 2016

Reviewed: 6 months ago

Traveled As: Large Group

Room Type: Suite

Our overall experience on the Escape was poor. The food in the no fee dining was way below expectations. Our 4th time on Norwegian and hopefully the last, only went because of a lot of friends were going. The one thing we absolutely loved was  no formal night and you could wear almost anything you wanted anytime. We had a mini-suite ( mini is right ) the bathroom was very nice though, big nice shower and a double sink. Always having to make reservations for shows. If you want early shows you really need to book before you board the ship, so it gets to be a kind of a regenmented schedule. Please you are on vacation! If you don't show up for a show you booked, you can't book another. Very restrictive! We like the idea of just showing up, we arrive early if we want good seats, otherwise we take our chance.

Service and Staff
Dining staff was very poor, always looked down so as not to make eye contact, in case you were looking for them. Request were offen not addressed. Drinks took forever, and if you ordered 2 appetites they often came together if no one else at your table ordered 2. On could go on and on about dining.

Get the drink package as a perk
