Rude crew members and long waits for drinks

Norwegian Escape Cruise Review by JrsRalliart

Trip Details
  • Sail Date: Apr 2019
  • Destination: the Bahamas
  • Cabin Type: Inside Stateroom

Chose this cruise cause I heard they are supposed to be one of the best. The crew walked around with a chip on their shoulder and gave a lot of attitude when asked simple question. Almost like they did not want to have to help you. The lines for drinks were about a 15 minute wait because the bartenders will serve their couple favourites and make everyone else wait. The food was absolutely terrible, unless you like msg with everything then you might be okay. The person I was traveling with got food poisoning the third last day from the a la carte restaurants of all things. The buffet is located right above the rear engines so you will be feeling a large rumble while trying to eat at any part of it. I would not recommend this cruise to anyone I know and would definitely never take one from ncl again

Cabin Review

Inside Stateroom
Cabin IF 14609

Was small but manageable. But the room was only cleaned once and they put on what looked like dirty sheets to replace the old ones

Port & Shore Excursion Reviews

New York (Manhattan)

Your online check in time that you select doesn’t mean anything. We got their earlier and still waited an hour and a half to get on the boat. And we were some of the first people on. Very disorganized with very little signage to tell you were to go.

Port Canaveral (Orlando)

Love Orlando but the port looks terrible. An with only 6 hours at the port and the fact that you are an hour away from everything makes it pretty pointless to spend $200 for 3 and a bit hours on a excursion which should last all day

Great Stirrup Cay

This little island was really cool and relaxing. The highlight of the cruise for sure. Drink package works on the island and their is complementary food as well so all you need to bring is a towel and ID to get back on the boat

Atlantis Resort

Go to Atlantis for sure but don't buy it from the boat. Way cheaper to buy your pass on the Atlantis website and just take a $5 taxi there from the port. Or even walk because it's not too far
