Norwegian Escape Cruise Review by kjjarema
- Sail Date: July 2018
- Destination: Bermuda
- Cabin Type: Balcony Stateroom
Con’s-Rude people. For the most part everyone we met was very nice, but a few can ruin it at times. Witness the fight on the pool deck that people got arrested for. People cutting at buffet line. There are designated smoking spots but some think if you are outside you can smoke. Manhattan restaurant, food was good but was crowded and loud. Had to talk over the music that they play. Shows “selling” out. The minute you get on board, sign up for the free shows. Told ourselves that we will not pay for a show, but we did for Choir of Men. Awesome show but the dinner was not very good. Saving deck chairs is a problem and will always be a problem. You can find one. You just have to keep going up. Got into Spice H2O only once. If you do not get a chair by 10:00. Forget it. Forget getting a chair by the pool. Dis-embarkment was TERRIBLE. Tag in our room said to be by our luggage in the terminal by 9:00. They start calling colors. Did not call ours, so called costumer service. They said we would be called at 9:00. At 9:00 our color was not called so we got in line. And what a line it was. We got to our luggage at 10:30. Not sure if they go through this every week, but what a disaster.
Observations-Lots of kids. And I mean little, little ones. Not sure how the parents can enjoy their vacations. Many Families. Three generations on board. Need to have a water filling station. We filled our bottles at the buffet even though it said not to. Atrium is a nice lounge but a terrible location to host what they host. Need another theater or something. Casino is in the middle of the ship, not bad but there is smoking and at times can get pretty bad. Picture taking will take up the entire hallway and even on the stairs and you can’t get by. Makes no sense. My opinion Vibe is a waste of space. It caters to only a few and you have to get onboard early to get a pass. Or give everyone a chance to attend. Make that space another pool, maybe a quiet pool. The main pool is very loud and very small. Call me old fashion but I believe that at the dining rooms men should wear slacks and a collared shirt. Did not do any of the specialty dining. Did not want to spend money on something that was already included in the price (even though we did attend Choir of Men, more for show and not for food). Free Unlimited drink package was nice. There are Bars everywhere you go. All of the bartenders were great. Everyone we met was very nice, saying that I would guess at least half the ship was from NY, New Jersey or Boston. Waiting for elevators was never really a problem. Coffee at Buffet was OK in flavor but extremely hot in temperature.
Overall, the trip was AMAZING. Cannot wait to get back.
