We just got back from an amazing week on the NCL Escape and I'm looking forward to booking another cruise on the Escape! I have to say, I was close to canceling our booking when the cancellation period was about to end based on all of the negative initial reviews that I read on here but I'm certainly glad I didn't.
There is so much to do on this boat that you simply don’t have enough time in 7 days to enjoy it all. If you are a glass half full person, you can find fault in anything and I suspect many of those people wrote most of the reviews that I read in the first few weeks of the boat’s service. If you are active, fun loving, enjoy good food and entertainment book this cruise and you won’t regret it.
About us: my wife and I both just turned 40, have 2 kids 6 and 8, enjoy food and drink, and typically vacation 5-7 weeks a year. This was my 8th cruise: 3 on NCL, 2 on Carnival, 2 on Royal Caribbean, and 1 on Disney. I found the entertainment and food to be the best among all cruises I've been on.
