Sail Date: Dec 2021
Cabin: Mid-ship Balcony Stateroom

We decided to go on this cruise due to the timing. Ship was all decorated for Christmas. We mostly dined at Taste and Savor . Did go to Garden couple of times & O'sheehans couple of times as well. Went to Cagney's for dinner one night and to La Cucina . Food and Service were Perfect. Ship being reduced capacity had only 1900 people and one would think would be more organized. I believe, Escape probably has the smallest cabin compared to other ships. Some of the amenities I paid for never made it to the cabin. Tried to reach out to Customer service but they were not helpful at all. Great Stirrup Caye was Awesome. Buffet was nice. Beach Clean. Jamaica was nice but it rained and few of my favorite shops were closed due to Pandemic. I would stay away from Bamboo Beach Excursion. Beach was too rocky and not as clean and felts rushed and unorganized

Cabin Review

Mid-ship Balcony Stateroom

Hardly saw my Cabin Steward but he always kept our cabins clean. Escape probably has the smallest cabin. Shower is small but has a glass enclosure.

Port Reviews

Cozumel

Went to Chankanaab all inclusive.It was nice. Been there before and sea lion show was Awesome

Ocho Rios

Bamboo Beach - Was all inclusive with Jamaican food & drinks - however the gal brought small plate of Fried green Plantains with boiled cabbage and greens ( Sorry not sure of the name.) then another small plate of rice & Chicken then another small plate of Banana fritters. 3 rum punch each. Food had no flavor she would not let us stay in the water - kept making us come to get the food so finally gave up on staying in the water which was not nice anyways.

Great Stirrup Cay

It was VERY hard to find any shade. But was very clean food was ok
