  3. Norwegian Escape
I had been on the Escape in 2015 on just the 3rd or 4th week of cruising. It was very new. I thought it was great then. Now the Escape has truly come into its own. The staff is above amazing. I think the staff onboard this ship is what makes this ship outstanding. I had a spa minisuite on deck 15. The only thing I could say about it was a few times I could hear them moving chairs above me for maybe 10-15 minutes. It wasn’t overly loud so nothing I would complain about but maybe someone else would want to know that. I am booked on a spa mini suite on the Encore in June so you know it didn’t bother me. The meals were exceptional. Even the Garden cafe was great. Sometimes it was a little crowded but I was always able to find a seat. The pool deck is often very crowded especially on sea days or after everyone has gotten back on from the port. I got a Vibe pass. Was it worth the cost? The vibe was definitely nice. I was surprised there was hardly anyone there though. I will probably weigh about purchasing one of these with how many kids I think will be board. The thermal spa was heavenly. I will never travel on a ship that doesn’t have one again. I will always want a spa pass for the week. NCL Escape - you were 5 stars!

Norwegian Escape is an escape to a dream!
