Review October 27, 2019 NCL Escape

Day 1 Sunday, October 27 arrived at pier in NYC around 12:10 because we were told via VM check in only between Noon and 3 due to coast guard inspection. Apparently we were the only ones told because at Haven check in we were checked in and immediately online to board ship. However, no Haven staff to bring us on board and we had to find our way on. When we got on ship it was already packed with people already having lunch. Haven restaurant already packed we had to sit at table outside the Haven Restaurant which was just fine. Our room was ready about 1:30. Haven Courtyard Penthouse 17128. Dinner was at LeBistro and was good as usual. (We had the dinner package for three meals and I made all dinner reservations online after final payment was made).We had the dinner promo (3), the Beverage Package, and Unlimited WiFi. I put our phones on Airplane Mode for the entire trip and used FB messenger to contact people. We prepaid the gratuities, however, tipped where called for.

Our room steward was Rommel and did an adequate job. When I asked if I could have a lounge chair on our balcony in ten minutes he arrived with a helper with a lounge! (We gave him a little something when we first met him and a little something when we left. Our butler was Fernando we gave him something when we met him and something when we left. We never asked for anything special from him. He dropped off some fruit and little snacks in the afternoon.Patrick was our concierge and we gave him something when we left.
