We have been reading reviews on the Escape, at first most of them seemed to be negative but more recently they have been more positive. So before she left for Miami we thought why not give her a try. I should also add that there have been several threads in CC about possible changes to the Escape after her first dry dock, we wanted to see the original version. About us, we sail exclusively with NCL. Why? Well here in the NYC area, NCL provides diverse itineraries not only in ships but destinations. We are both platinum-plus with NCL. Also equally important, NCL hasn't given us a reason to try another cruise line. Embarkation and disembarkation at the Manhattan terminal were almost perfect for us. Literally no issues, I have seen utter chaos in the terminal with smaller ships, not this time. We booked this cruise within 60 days, so we selected the sailaway price, they gave us cabin 9704, which was described as an OA cabin. Cabin steward was part Ninja, only saw him two times, but the cabin was kept clean. He must have been hiding somewhere, we leave and then come back within 30 minutes and the cabin was perfect. Entertainment - Choir of Men, fantastic. After Midnight also a great show. Julie Barr, still thinking about some of her comments. She has to one of the best comedians aboard any cruise ship. Food - Cagney's, the steak was cooked to perfection, side dishes seemed bigger, did notice more surcharges on the menu. Moderno, way too much food, no issues with service or taste. La Cucina, just an OK Italian restaurant. The MDR restaurants had the typical NCL menu, no real surprises or disappointments. The ship was in great shape, didn't see any worn/damaged carpet, constantly cleaned and maintained by the crew. Overall we had a great time, even with the bad weather there was something to do aboard / indoors. Didn't spend any time on the top deck or Spice H2O. Wished that we had more time aboard, these 5 day cruises are way too short. Negative observations - 5 o'clock somewhere bar wasn't aboard the Escape, we went in there and it was dead, almost had the feel of dead space. Skyline bar which was used for the parties had a smokey smell to it. Could not get a great chocolate martini and they had all the shows in the Atrium which made it almost impossible to travel through deck #6 or #7 during the shows. Read Less

Norwegian was highly recommended by friends. The ship was great, the company of Norwegian, not great. They schedule a cruise to dock and spend full day in Bermuda on Sunday when the country is closed! We wer unable to see many of the local attractions because the stores/restaurants were closed and buses ended service early. To keep from being stranded we had to be back to the boat by 5pm. NEVER cruise to Bermuda in November, Seas were so rocky we were sick the whole time. Staff and other passengers stated it was one of the worst cruises they had ever been on. Poor planning by NCL all around!!!!! The ship itself was wonderful, but due to the bad weather we were unable to fully experience the outdoor activities. Too much rain and wind, the deck was blocked off most of the cruise. No monitoring on the adult club, teens were there in the hot tub and the water cave. Adults were unable to use either because of the teens. Our rear aft handicapped cabin was wonderful! spacious. The restaurants we were able to visit were wonderful. Food was good, drinks were good. Entertainment was great! We saw Choir of Men and it was a FANTASTIC show! Getting on the ship was smooth and so was getting off the ship. NCL did evertthing possible to to make the experience as smooth as possible. Service was excellent! The staff was amazing, all were very helpful the entire cruise! Read Less

For a newer LARGE cruise ship we expected more of a "WOW" factor in the public spaces and different areas of the ship to relax or be entertained in. We found the same basic layout of shops, different dining options, pool decks etc that have been on most ships over the last 15 years....just more people and cabins added. The one exception was the Thermal Spa which was very well appointed with many options to relax and enjoy. Although it was an additional cost, we felt it was worth the price to use daily. Service in dining and other areas was what you would expect, good but not fantastic, but considering the price point, service was good. Same with the quality of food, good to very good considering the price paid for the cruise. This included the specialty dining we used 2 nights which was included in our package, not sure I would have spent additional money on them, the quality, service and presentation in Main dining room was just as good. We had cabin 11782, nice balcony cabin, bathroom area was very comfortable to use and entire cabin functional and well designed. Entertainment - acceptable, but nothing better or worse than other cruise lines we have traveled on. We had an exceptional shore tour, we really enjoyed the Bike rail trail tour. The guides, bikes and itinerary were great. Read Less
