We chose this cruise because of the ship. We wanted to use the water park and ropes course. We went to all the shows on base. We really enjoyed Scotty the juggler. He went above and beyond to make my son feel special on the cruise. We ... Read more

This was my first cruise and I have to say it was great. No wonder so many people do it so often. After I made my reservations I started reading and looking at cruise blogs to get an idea of what I was getting into. There were a lot of ... Read more

We have been on many cruises and the Escape does not measure up to other ships. The size of the ship is impressive, but the food quality was very poor and the dinning room service was extremely slow. Each night our meals took between 2.5 ... Read more

This was a cruise of firsts for us. We generally don't do suites, we don't go to much onboard entertainment/shows, we usually hang on the main deck quite a bit and we are generally not the most brand loyal cruisers (we're split pretty ... Read more

The smoke from the Casino (Deck 7) was horrible! It encompassed the entire inside of Deck #7 and parts of Decks #6 & #8 via the open Atrium. To make matters worse, my family's emergency station was the Casino (smoke city)! Outside ... Read more

We are not "cruise people" and took the cruise mostly to have some family time and to see the ports of call in Roatan, Belize and Costa Maya. We were surprised by how much we enjoyed the overall experience. The ship was lovely ... Read more

Never have been on Norwegian thought we would love it. Everything was great except for the dining. 3 hours and bad service is enough to turn you off. Staff at dinner had no personality, they seemed to be none caring. I will commit on the ... Read more
