Review summary

Overall the Escape was a good sail , like I said huge ship bring your track shoes, Would I sail her again NO once was enough.. Ship was clean throughout crew were very professional except room stewards seemed distant from passenger which I found to be unusual oh well can't be on your A Game all the time.

Ship experiences

MDR was decent, specialty restaurants hit or miss, buffet mad house, closed at unusual times

Pool was pretty small for over 4000 people but it was nice as far as the rope course etc did not use but it appears all who use had a blast.

Entertainment

Nice cabin with extended balcony , nice size bath, shower combo , but bed was uncomfortable, pillows sucked , but overall nice cabin, decent storage , mini bar, etc.

Port of Costa Maya is nice huge pool shops dolphin swim , but wife was a little disturb with size of dolphin enclosure, Excursion was paradise we chose to do a private excursion we went to a ECO Resort called ALMAPLENA it was the ultimate paradise had the entire beach to ourselves food was really good not fabulous but good , waiters were on point margaritas were delicious, highly recommend after being around over 4000 people did not want to leave. Hats off to them.
