  3. Norwegian Escape
First time cruiser and not knowing what to expect, I found this Norwegian Escape to be mostly enjoyable (overall). The crew are all friendly and accommodating and I never saw any crew member no smiling.The ship is very large and there are numerous activities available on board from zip lines to water tube slides, to basketball courts. Plenty of activities for all ages. Numerous bars and lounges to choose from along with main dining rooms and specialty dining. The food was good and drinks flow all hours. With all that being said I did find some areas that could use improvement. I think that if there are 3 dining rooms, they should serve different choices and you should be able to make a reservation instead of having to wait 45 minutes to be seated. I also think that the "pool" area is the main attraction on board the pool itself should be bigger than it is. I also think that small/young children should not be allowed (yes, there are signs that say adults only, not really enforced) . I also think that you should be able to sit at a bar/lounge and order appetizers. The elevators need improvement to be more efficient. After weighing pros and cons I did enjoy the trip as I understand nothing is ever really perfect, but it was enjoyable....get the beverage package

Cabin Review

Balcony Stateroom
Cabin BF 9130
Cabin was nice, it was clean and large enough for 2. I can not see going on cruise with out a balcony. Had king size bed and there was an option to sleep 2 more (kids). The bathroom was big enough although there was no electrical outlet in bathroom.
