We chose this after cruising with NCL on the Epic. What a terrible choice though. Officers told us the Escape and much of the NCL fleet was built in Germany, Epic was built in France. I will not cruise on any ship built in Germany again if that's the case.

The main pool was 6ft8" deep and over 18's only allowed. No use for our 11 year old then. So they called another pool the main pool, it was also salt water, it was 5ft at the shallow end and 5ft8" at the deep end. They were handing out life jackets to children! There were no sunbeds near the pool but kids under 12 needed adult supervision so I spent time standing like a lemon. My son hated the pool and how can kids play when they cant touch the bottom of the pool. We were told the ship had 6 sections and the pools had to be that depth to balance the weight. Never mind comfort.

So if you like salt water pools, don't have kids and don't mind being out of your depth its great.

Cabin Review

Mini-Suite with Large Balcony

we were not told our mini suite would have a bunk bed but it did. found that very poor, the alternative was a single sofa bed. for such an expensive cabin thought it was very poor. bathroom was good, but bedding layout terrible.
