The Escape is a beautiful new ship with great amenities. The water slides and sports activities are the best we have ever seen on any cruise ship. The ship is crowded and finding a space to lay in the sun and relax is a bit of a problem. ... Read more

I chose the Escape because we had such a great time on the Jewel last summer. Plus it is only 9 months old. The Escape felt much less luxurious than the Jewel though. The good - comfy balcony room with great pillow selection. (My son ... Read more

I would love to give the Escape a more positive review as the service was outstanding. For a new ship, the design is simply horrid. You can not walk through the main atrium area on 3 floors without being subjected to the awful smell of ... Read more

Ship is too big. Disembarking for Bermuda was awful. Had to wait 45 minutes for a cab to Horsehoe Bay. While I dislike the cheesy shows that I was forced to attend by my party, the Second City Improv and Howling Moon Dueling Pianos were ... Read more
