My husband and I just returned from our cruise with two friends. We drove to Miami on Friday and arrived early on Saturday so we could park at the port. Embarkation was easy and they had our cabins ready by 1:30! The weather did not cooperate but we had a great time anyway. We thought the food was excellent and the servers was very attentive and well trained. We ate breakfast and lunch in the Garden Cafe buffet, with the exception of one breakfast in Taste restaurant. There were many delicious choices, including a small selection of Indian specialties. My husband especially enjoyed the waffles with banana topping. Dinners in the Manhattan dining room were outstanding because of the romantic atmosphere, attentive wait staff, delicious food, and excellent entertainment. We saw both of the big shows in the Escape Theater. After Midnight was enjoyable and the performers were quite talented, especially the tap dancers. Choir of Man was an amazing, energetic experience that was different from anything we’d seen before. We actually saw it once early in our cruise, and we returned to see the last show on the last night, which turned out to be their last show on the Escape. (They are beginning a U. S. tour.) We were sad to leave this beautiful ship and are looking forward to the next time we see her.

Cabin Review

Mid-ship Inside Stateroom
Cabin IA
We were assigned a handicapped room, and it was quite spacious for an inside cabin. It was hard getting used to the automatic door though!
