The Escape is a beautiful new ship. Everything is in great shape. Pool deck was very crowded but pleasantly surprised that the smell of smoke in the atrium was not pronounced like other reviews have stated. Had two rooms- one B6 large balcony and the other a Haven Front Facing Penthouse on Deck 9. The B6 room had a large balcony with a lounger and two chairs. Room had beds by the closet. Big enough for two but would be tight for more people. Bathroom was a decent size. Food was nothing special. Dined in O'Sheehan's and had some very good wings and fast service. Everyone was very friendly and staff was helpful. Buffet had a good selection although the eggs were not very good. NCL serves Pepsi products plus large selection of juice drinks and tea and lemonade for free. Main dining room food OK. Entertainment was OK but nothing outstanding. Saw the comedians twice and the free supper show the Cat's Pajamas. Casino was never packed mostly due to high minimum tables stakes. Bingo was fun. Embarkation and debarkation was fast and easy. Love the port embarkation where NCL provides cold wash clothes, water and juice and a towel exchange. Makes you feel special. All in all was a fun cruise.

Nice New Large Boat
