Norwegian Escape

January 2016 - 7 Night Eastern Caribbean (Miami Roundtrip) Cruise on Norwegian Escape

New does not mean great!

Escape in NCL's new ship. 4,000 plus passengers and not enough crew to handle the load. The ship is poorly designed and more like a prison with little access to outside areas since the rooms occupy most of the available space. Bars shut down usually before midnight and dining options (other than the horrible garden buffet) limited on time. Not a good thing for the cruise line that boasts anytime dining freestyle cruising. We did not even get turndown service on our last night...lack of crew size. They nickel and dime you everywhere. Order room service after 10AM...surcharge. Specialty restaurants are all a la carte so prepare to pay New York or Miami prices unless you pick up the dining package. Drinks are very expensive and watered down. If we were to get a FREE cruise...NEVER AGAIN!
