  3. Norwegian Escape
I like the free style cruises. Norwegian Escape (built in 2015) is excellent ship. It has much more space for guests everywhere than Breakaway. Cons: Cabin at aft (#12864) was very comfortable, but had a lot of mechanical vibration in low-frequency (up to 30 Hz) diapason. Sometimes was not possible to sleep because of vibration. Show has an excellent actors, but too cheap scenarios. Service phone (#00) number at night time does not answer and has no message box. Port and Shore excursions are good, but expensive. Read forums, explore the Internet and find the same excursions by municipal transport. Pros: Variety and quality of foods are the best in all restaurant and Dining Rooms. But go to Garden Cafe and enjoy any time. Entertainment (exclude show in the Theater) is very good. I can recommend Choir of Man in the Superclub, I can recommend the great guitarist (Orly Penate), which often playing in Brewhouse or at Tobacco Road. In the Brewhouse Manny (the Piano Man) was fun and engaging, and the bar staff was also excellent. Captain Giovanni Cutugno is very experienced and responsible person. Guest Services were excellent. Thanks to Deepak Punia (Hotel Director). Our Steward (Felix) is the best. Anton (Norwegian Escape Art Gallery consultant) is very knowledgeable. Zdravko Kojakovich (Food and Beverage Director) and Prejith Poovaoadathil (Executive Chef) care about the best and very tasty foods for guests. Mustafa Kalkan (Asst. Maitre 'D) is ready to help you any time. Forget about diet! :))) Finally, me and my wife are looking for the next cruise on Norwegian Escape with the same Staff.

The Excellent Staff!

Cabin Review

Aft-facing Balcony Stateroom
Cabin B1 12864
Cabin at aft (#12864) was very comfortable, but had a lot of mechanical vibration in low-frequency (up to 30 Hz) diapason. Sometimes was not possible to sleep because of vibration. We had a proposal to relocate to another stateroom (oceanview), but it was not acceptable.
