Norwegian Escape

7 Night Western Caribbean (Miami Roundtrip)

Sail date: November 23, 2019

Ship: Norwegian Escape

Traveled as: Family (older children)

Reviewed: 2 years ago

Review summary

Been on 10 cruises in last 6 years - this is by far the least remarkable. I would expect that level of experience from Carnaval cruises (which are cheaper by design) but not from Norwegian. Won't risk my vacation again and will stay away from NCL in the future.

Food and Dining

Buffet and the main dinning are just OK. O'Sheehan's pub is great!

Onboard Activities

2 out of 5
Well below average. Long lines everywhere that make the activities essentially a N/A


2 out of 5
"Walmart style" entertainment to the most part - very cheap. One big exception is "Choir of man" which is great.
