Norwegian Escape

Norwegian Escape - Norwegian Cruise Line

You'll love Norwegian Escape if you love having a ton of options when it comes to dining and entertainment, and don't want to dress up for dinner.

Norwegian Escape is not the ship for you if you hate waiting in lines and want a more inclusive fare; a la carte fees and cover charges add up quickly.

My expectations may have been too high and or wrong before coming on the cruise, therefore it wasn't exactly the trip that I hoped I had saved up for. As far as vacations go, I usually can only afford places that I can drive to. My girlfriend and I decided to come on the cruise because her parents suggested it and were offered 2 additional guests as a perk. I am in college so this was the only week I would be available. They booked the cruise and we split it 4 ways which was the only way we could afford it. The cost of booking including taxes and fees ended up being about $1000 a person which was manageable. Because we had a balcony room, we got to pick a second perk. We would have picked the ultimate drink package for the main 2 guests but due to misinformation by the Norwegian employee on the telephone (who said we would need to purchase for all 4 people) we chose the $50 per port for excursions. If we had the drink package for the main 2 guests, we would have split the cost of the drinks for my girlfriend and I between the 4 of us and saved much more money. On top of that mix up our second excursion was cancelled (Stirrup Cay) and we lost out on that $50 and the part I was looking forward to, riding jet skis in the Bahamas. I don't blame Norwegian for the weather as that would be ridiculous, but I am a bit jaded because almost every day was cloudy, windy, and cool (low 70's). This most certainly affected using the pools and waterslides on the ship. As I said our second port was cancelled, and our excursion to Aquaventure in Atlantis was a bummer. I just hadn't expected to pay $180 for a waterpark in the Bahamas only to freeze getting in and out of the water. The beach looked beautiful, but the water was off limits due to dangerous swells and riptides. Orlando, our first port was our favorite. We chose the Airboat ride and Alligator Jungle. It was a great day for the weather and my only complaint was how rushed the Airboat ride was. Since we missed Stirrup Cay we had two days at port in Nassau. This ended up working out for us as we didn't have a curfew the first night and were able to experience the bars and nightlife. I brought my mask and snorkel to the beach there, but the water was too rough. Onboard the ship I hadn't expected the prices of everything to be so high. I really had to limit myself to make sure I didn't go too far over budget. If I cruised again, I wouldn't do it without the drink package. Even though I spent less on drinks than the package would have cost I felt like I would have had been more relaxed if I didn't have to keep a running tally every time I ordered a $10 beer. It just seemed like everything we wanted to do was going to cost extra plus taxes and gratuities. I chose to go without internet because of cost although I did enjoy being disconnected for a week. The buffet food was above average, but I preferred O’sheehans because of how crowded the buffet was all the time. O’sheehans did everything extremely well except for the prime rib special one of the days. The other complimentary dining was average to me. The waitstaff was courteous, the food was good, but the menus were boring and very similar to each other. The one specialty dinner we chose to go to was Teppanyaki. The food was delicious but personally I didn’t consider it a value at $38. There were positives on my trip, and I wouldn’t be fair if I didn’t share. First and foremost, our room Steward Derrick was amazing. Our room was always perfectly prepared and clean, and his towel animals were amazing. I asked him a lot of questions because I am very inquisitive and he was always honest and polite, and never looked remotely annoyed. This was true of most of the staff. The entertainment was all very good. Wen went to Howl at the moon twice because it was our favorite show. The man who played piano at the Brew pub was also very entertaining. After midnight, and Wine lovers the musical were great, and it was exciting to see the performers out and about on the ship. Matt Johnson and the comedians also had great acts. Will I cruise again? Possibly when I finish college and can afford to spend much more. I do feel I could have offset certain things if I could afford to replace them with other things. I would also probably cruise from Miami next time so that even my days at sea are in warmer weather. All in all it was a learning experience for me. Read Less

My husband and I took our 1st cruise last week and it will be out last. For starters we were supposed to receive a copy of our final bill by 5:00 a.m. the morning of departure & didn't. Arriving home we were charged $300 with no explanation, logged into our account & our summary is "unavailable". We checked our charges the night before and they were $114 which we agreed with. We did not make it to Great Stirrup Cay which was the main reason we booked this cruise to begin with. I called guest services on board to find out what was happening and was rudely told we can do this it's in the fine print. I asked where we could go in Nassau and if there will be beaches nearby and was told there is a beach within walking distance but it's not that nice so we could take a taxi to another beach. I advised that we were nervous to do so in a country we are not familiar with especially since I am pregnant. I was then told I don't know what else to tell you and hung up on. Speaking of my pregnancy I was extremely upset to learn the casino is in the middle of the ship in the middle of everything, I had to walk through second hand smoke daily and expose both myself and unborn child when my doctor has specifically told me to stay away from it. Not only was the smoke on floor 7, but 6 & 8 b/c your casino is not closed off & smoke is not contained. Its disgusting and unsafe for pregnant guests, children, elderly and those medical conditions! It was evident to us throughout our entire cruise that the staff hates their job. 80% of the staff we encountered were rude, nasty, & annoyed by the fact that they had to do their job. We traveled with someone who has an allergy and every meal was a disaster waiters would roll their eyes at her & walk away without answering her question. 90% of our meals were either incorrect or we just wouldn't get what we ordered. My husband & I attempted the buffet and on 2 SEPARATE OCCASIONS we found HAIR IN OUR FOOD! Although our room was clean there were 2 -3 occasions we found LONG BLACK HAIR in our clean towels when getting out of the shower (WE ARE BLONDE)!I called guest services again to make restaurant reservations and was told there weren't any, I could try just going and see if they could get me in. When I explained my frustration and disappointment with our trip, we were again abruptly hung up on. Finally, on our second day in Nassau we got off the boat around 10:30 a.m. I had to go right back on the boat as I was not feeling well only to find out this is when Norwegian thought it would be a good time to hold your fire drill and stopped all elevators. I had to climb the stairs all the way to the 13th floor pregnant and not feeling well. My husband and I are so disgusted with Norwegian and our trip Our vacation was not enjoyable at all. Read Less

We were on the famous “strong winds hit a cruise leaving New York city” that was on the news the first week of March. Many injuries endured by passengers and entertainers: bone fractures, sprains and wounds. My husband and I were in our room with our children when it happened and no one came to check to see if everyone was ok after the incident. I thought of older passengers, maybe alone in their cabin, and hoped they were ok. My daughter almost slid off her bunk bed when the ship tipped to the side. Things did not get any better after that frightful night. We ended up not stopping at Stirrup Cay, as planned in our itinerary, but going straight to Nassau to spend 2 days. When you pay for a trip that includes 3 stops and you only do 2, you would think there would be some kind of compensation, nope! In addition, when you have an ultimate beverage package, you need to pay taxes on drinks when at port. Therefore, since we were at a port in Nassau for two full days, we had to pay extra taxes on the drinks. If we had been at Stirrup Cay and then at sea to Nassau the next day, as planned, we would have saved paying taxes. Do you think we had some kind of compensation for this? Nope! Big disappointment not visiting a private island (the most interesting stop of the cruise) and big disappointment having to pay unforeseen taxes, which do add up in the end... We have reserved the same trip next March, in 2020, but we will most certainly cancel. Even if the strong winds were a surprise and not stopping at Stirrup Cay a security measure, there could have been some kind of compensation. A message of apology from Norwegian and a rebate on a future cruise would have been highly appreciated. A travel agent on vacation on the cruise told us not to expect anything... Shows: excellent, especially Choir of Man, saw it twice. Food: delicious Read Less
