  3. Norwegian Escape
Left from NYC and we were traveling with our 4 grandchildren, it was convenient and we didn't have to fly. Everyhting is extra including the shows, even bingo. Very crowded, waited on line for everything. Allowed smoking in the casino so the entire area reeked from smoke. The entertainment was terrible and you had to buy dinner inorder to see it and the dinner was terrible. The ports were boring and the excursions were poorly organized. The protocol for hand washing was not enforced unless you call someone singing washy, washy enforced. The teen program did not exist. The cabin was small and we had two cabins. We upgraged one cabin to the Haven which is very nice but very expensive, Wait to bid on them since they don't sell out. If we didn't have the haven pool the trip would have been even worse. I would not reccomend this trip to anyone.

Will never cruise Norwegian again
