  3. Norwegian Escape
We have been on many cruises and the Escape does not measure up to other ships. The size of the ship is impressive, but the food quality was very poor and the dinning room service was extremely slow. Each night our meals took between 2.5 to 3 hours to serve. The food lacked flavor, was over cooked and dry. The ship also did not have adequate pool space and was overcrowded every day. It was also very difficult to get tickets/reservations to get into the nightly shows. On the positive side, the bar service was good and overall the ship was clean. We have only cruised on Norwegian twice prior to this cruise and we were very excited the try them again, but after this experience I would be hesitant to cruise with Norwegian again. There is a lot of competition between cruise lines and Norwegian is going to have to make improvements to win back past cruisers.

A Big Disappointment
