This was our ninth Norwegian cruise. We found the Escape similar in lay out to the Breakaway...with a few extras. Drove to the port Sunday morning and as Platinum members, embarkation was a breeze. We had booked a spa mini suite and it didn't disappoint. Our Room steward Wilford was outstanding. He was always near and never in the way...just outstanding! The room was large enough for the two of us, but what makes the mini suites special on the larger Norwegian ships is the bathroom...extra large shower, double sink, and very nice soaps, shampoo, conditioner, and body lotions. The Spa was larger than the other ships we have been on. If you do the spa, do not miss the tile loungers...I wanted to bring it home again. The spa was quiet on off times, but heard from a fellow passenger that the first sea day it was loud and crowded. We had made reservations for dining for the week 120 days out online, so there was no problem.. Was disappointed that the menu at Bayamo had changed as I was looking forward to a Latin twist! That being said...the seafood menu closer to Ocean Blue was outstanding. Loved Le Bistro, Cagney's and La Cucina were ok. The real gem was Food Republic. We went for Lunch one day and skipped The Manhattan Room for Food Republic for dinner...outstanding. The brew house was nice, didn't spend much time there but to have a couple and the meet and greet for Cruise Critic was there. They went all out for Cruise Critic. The Casino was very nice. The executive hostess Lauraine , and Casino manager Stephen were very nice. I had a disagreement with both about win/loss that remained unresolved.....I respectfully disagreed with them about the number and I will leave that as it is. I found the dealers on this ship were a little reserved. On other ships, the dealers were personable and fun to be around...they made losing fun so to speak!!!! Bermuda was Bermuda....Bermudiful! Overall a very nice experience. Smooth sailing both ways. Read Less

We went on a family cruise to Bermuda. The food was decent, the drinks were good. Service in the main dining room (The Manhattan Room) was poor. The buffet was a mob scene and it was difficult to find a table to eat at. The specialty restaurants were good, we ate at 2 of them. Coffee was horrible and very weak in the buffet (Garden Cafe). Pools were mobbed most of the time. Elevators were very difficult to get on to get to the deck we needed to be on. Cabin service was poor. We had to hunt for towels and bathmats several days. Stewards were invisible. Hallways were very narrow and it seemed that every time we walked to or from our cabin, there were always housekeeping carts obstructing our passage. I know the ship is/was a very large one but either the staff are very slow or Norwegian needs to hire more people and train them properly to make up the rooms quickly and efficiently. Overall, it was a good cruise and a good time was had by all but there were several things that could have been improved substantially to provide a much better guest experience. Read Less

I went on this cruise with my wife and two children (3yo and 5yo) with many of her family members to celebrate my in laws 50th wedding anniversary. This was my first time sailing with Norwegian. I have been on several other cruises with Carnival, Disney and Royal Caribbean. The good about this ship/experience: There is plenty of variety in terms of things to do, notably restaurants and bars/lounges. Many are "extra," but the food was overall very good in all the ones we tried. The food was comparable to other cruises I have tried. The ship is very clean. The kids/youth services are excellent, better in my opinion than what I saw on the Disney cruise we took in Oct. My kids had a blast. The not so good: The ship feels VERY overcrowded. I felt like most of the ship was staterooms. There is as much pool/common space as other ships I have been on but way more people. This adds to the feeling of being overrun at times, especially in the pool areas, and especially during sailing days; also, while the service is good and friendly, there is lacking that extra bit of customer service I have experienced on other cruises I have been on. No one was ever rude or anything, but seldom did anyone do anything extraordinary either. Also felt like I was always trying to be upsold (restaurants, water, photos, etc), but no more than all the other cruises I suppose. In summary: Great big beautiful, clean ship; great amenities; excellent youth services/staff; crowded, crowded, crowded; dining service good not great. Read Less
