Norwegian Escape Review
Norwegian Escape Cruise Review to Caribbean - Eastern
This was our first trip on Norwegian, but we have cruised on other lines a lot. The ship was beautiful, but compared to other cruise lines the cabins are smaller. They advertise a refrigerator in each cabin, but it is locked. Noise above our cabin from 11:00 p.m. - 1:00 a.m. or sometimes throughout night kept us awake on and off. Ship was full so couldn't change cabins. Service in main dining room not as good. No lobster dinner offered unless you pay $20+ extra. Also, selection of foods offered does not compare to other cruise lines, nor does selection on buffet. Entertainment was good but foul language even at 10 o'clock in main auditorium. Did enjoy live band in main auditorium whereas other cruise lines don't have them any more. You're allowed to each take a bottle of wine aboard, but they take it away when you board and when you go to get it during cruise, they charge you $15 uncorking fee even if you're taking it back to your cabin. All in all, drinks cost more. You feel like you are "dollared" to death the whole trip.
It was our 50th anniversary and we had a good time anyway, but wish some things had been nicer.

Bring lots of money. They "dollar" you to death.
