I cruise NCL every Thanksgiving and this time I decided to give NCL Escape another chance. This time I took my daughter, son in law and grandson who's 1 years old. This proved to exceed my expectations. Mushroom from the Guppies area was a GEM with my grandson. Since, this was his first time cruising, I was very nervous about him going but she went above and beyond to make sure he had fun. He interacted with other kids, went to the free play dates almost everyday and even loved Glow Party Night. As far as us adults are concerned, we had a blast, from the drinks, food to the entertainment; nothing was off putting or out of place. We never waited for food or Drinks. Chocolate Cowboy is the BEST bartender at sea (outside in 5 o'clock). He even made colorful drinks for the grandson while he was in his stroller. Oh what a night is a great show, if you don't want the $$ dinner show, they do a one night only show in the Escape theater for free and For the Record is by far one of the Best Shows at Sea if you love old 80's movies! The Glow Party is still my favorite night at Sea.
Bottom line, they completely made up the crap we went thru last year by 100%. Thank NCL for making us have a Great Thanksgiving

Don't expect to get the same drink you like in all the bars. Two places you can definitely get the drink you love is Skyline and 5'Oclock somewhere bar outside. This ship is different than the other NCL Ships. Also, try the Dali in the brewery; it's Pitbulls drink and it's wonderful!
