Review summary

This was our 6th cruise to Bermuda, the 5th on Norwegian Cruise Line. This was our first experience on the Norwegian Escape. One great thing about NCL is that there are certain features shared in common across all of the ships of the fleet. There are also unique aspects to each ship. Our previous two NCL cruises were aboard the Norwegian Breakaway, sister ship to the Escape. Getting around on board is a breeze. Our Aft-Facing Balcony stateroom gave us plenty of storage and a larger than expected balcony. We saw the shows "After Midnight" and "For The Record - The Brat Pack" and both were spectacular. The performers are impressively talented and the shows are excellent. Bermuda was just as beautiful as always. The Bermudian people are friendly and helpful. It's also convenient that the exchange rate is 1:1. The Bermudian dollar is valued at exactly one U.S. dollar. This makes shopping a cinch. We recommend Bermuda as a destination and cruising is our preferred mode of travel.

Cabin / Stateroom

We bid on a stateroom upgrade and were very pleasantly surprised to receive an Aft-Facing Balcony stateroom. This was our best stateroom in our 7 cruises so far.

For some reason this time checking in luggage in New York took hours instead of the usual few minutes we've gotten used to. Once inside the terminal, the process went more smoothly.

Royal Naval Dockyard, West End, Bermuda

This was the 6th time we've cruised to Bermuda. We know our way around the area and enjoyed the local shopping.

Disembarkation in New York went as smoothly as silk.
