Review summary

This was my first cruise and i dont know if i would need to ever sail on a different ship. The Escape is wonderful. There are a few negatives like the smoke smell and overcrowded main pool area. But there are plenty of others places to go and things to do. I cant wait until we can sail on her again.

This process was so easy. We arrived very early but were on board an hour before the scheduled time.

Ship experiences

Food and Dining

5 out of 5
Bayamo was the best followed by Cagney's. Our third favorite was Teppanyaki. The service was great at all of them.

O'Sheehan's Bar and Grill

5 out of 5

Great service and lots of fun playing the games.

Onboard Activities

5 out of 5
Spa passes were amazing. We did the ropes course which was fun and got passes to Vibe which we would not live without on the next cruise.

Vibe Beach Club

5 out of 5

Bong, Curly and the other bartender (cant remember his name), are all amazing and so funny. They kept us all laughing. The week would not have been as memorable without the Vibe.


We did not attend any shows

Children's Programs

No children

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
Cant remember our stewards name for room 11830 but he was great!

Ship Quality

5 out of 5
Great layout and very clean but maybe would have been better if the casino and the smoke was more contained behind closed doors.

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
The mini suite bathroom size is well worth the extra couple of bucks.

Ship tip

Get spa passes. You'll feel like royalty.
