Basically my Mom had the offer from Foxwoods Casino Promotion.. I took my two kids for my daughter 18 th Birthday and Graduation.. We had a great time.. it was something to do for all of us..My 10 yr old son definitely enjoyed meeting new friends at the Splash Academy. Food & Drinks Great!! Such a great idea to purchase the drink package. I can’t Rave anymore because it would go on and on.. Staff very friendly and helpful service.. Definitely looking forward to planning another trip soon. For this to be my first time omg not really anything bad to say... We did get sea sick but it didn’t stop us from enjoying ourselves!! The Cabin was very spacious and comfortable!! Our view was Awesome!! Again Great Time and definitely looking forward to another Epic Adventure with my Mom and Family!!

We choose this cruise because our cruise friends booked it and we decided to go with them. in all we were 10 people. From start to finished it was a very good cruise, We arrived at the Port by 10.15 am and check in took all but 15 min ( I did provide a CC on line before getting to the Port so that saved time) We were on Board by 11;00 am very fast and organized boarding. We all had lunch at Savor (10 of us) and service was quick and friendly and the menu and food did not disappoint. By 1: 20 pm the Cabins were ready for us and we went to our Cabin Mini Suite 15798 to drop of our carry on and to get ready for Muster Drill at 2;30 pm . Muster Drill was well organized and went smooth ( it helps if guest would show up on time and listen to the instructions giving ) We sailed away a little after 3:00 pm and we got lucky with the weather for March ( NCL does not control the weather or the seas lol ) The service provided by our room Steward was great. we never had to ask for anything.He made sure we had everything that we needed on a daily basis. I can honestly say out of all the cruises we have been on this was the best, from the food to the drinks to the service to the Entertainment and having great friends on board everything was awesome. NCL should be proud of their crew and the service they provide to their guest, I would like to add that if you find that the crew was not overly friendly, you may want to check to see if you treated them with respect and in a friendly matter . sometimes the problem lies with us.

We got home on Sunday and had a wonderful trip! I can confirm first hand that the rumours are true. The Escape is a beautiful ship with a warm and friendly staff. We had one dud server, but instead of dwelling on it, we filled out many hero cards about the great ones. The good vibes started when we got word the Thursday before that our bid for an upgrade was accepted. We went from family balcony to mini-suite. I got the spa pass for the last 3 days of the trip and spent many hours on the heated tile beds. Ahhhhhhh..... The food was the best I have had in 12 years of cruising (mostly NCL and MSC). We rarely hit the buffet because my hubby has a mobility issue, but Taste, Savor and especially the Manhattan dining rooms were wonderful experiences. We often got 2 appetizers each and if we were too full for dessert, hit the midnight buffet for a "sweetie" before turning in. My 16 year old took a few days to warm up to the Entourage program, but we hardly saw him the last 3 days of the cruise. As far as accommodating my hubby's mobility issue (CP), the access desk made very few promises, but delivered on them in spades! Boarding and disembarking were smooth as silk with wheelchair service and priority boarding. Remind me to take him with me EVERYtime I travel to bypass the long lines. :) Hubby was very happy to remain on the ship while my son and I took in the ports. No Great Stirrup Cay this trip, and the buzz on the ship is that the stop is more miss than hit at this time of year. NCL returned $32 in port fees pp which almost covered my spa pass. The greatest testament came from my son and hubby who are both first timers. Both want to know when we are going to do it again. Literally again. Same ship. Same itinerary. What nubes! Read Less

Although we have cruised quite a few times before, we finally convinced our daughter and her husband to join us for this one. It was a totally different experience, but it was even more fun than our other cruises. EMBARKATION- I have some mobility issues and so requested wheelchair assistance at the pier. The wheelchair waiting area was just inside the terminal at Pier 88 in NYC, It was great to wait in the holding area and not to have to stand in long queues. We arrived at 9:30 and were on board by 11:30. We went straight to the dining room for lunch because the kids were hungry. Although it rained much of the afternoon, it cleared up enough for a fun SailAway. The band played some fun and upbeat songs and we enjoyed sailing past the statue of liberty. We continued to have a great time the rest of the week.Here are some of my thoughts in general: DINING: Specialty restaurants were all very good.We particularly enjoyed Teppanyaki and Moderno. O'Sheehan's service was a little bit lacking, as was the MDR. The first time at O'Sheehan's the waiter refused to order kids meals for our very picky 4 year old.He also brought multiples of several dishes. We had a huge table full of food; it was almost comical.The second time we ate at O'Sheehan's, they did go get a kids' meal for the little one, but we could see two staff members arguing about it. No matter, the food showed up and the kid was happy. In the MDR, food was slow to come and at our first dinner there, we were shown to a table, but no waiter seemed to have been assigned. We flagged down an officer and it was quickly rectified, but only after several nearby tables were seated after we were and had ordered and been served drinks and bread while we still waited. We also are STILL unhappy about no lobster in the MDR. Food service was the just a little lacking overall, but not enough to make us unhappy. After all, there is no need to stress, we were on vacation. PORTS: We didn't take this cruise for the ports. We didn't even get off the ship in Port Canaveral. There is almost nothing to do there that is worth the money. We did enjoy the uncrowded pool deck, though. The buffet didn't seem prepared for the throngs trying to grab a bite before heading out, though. GREAT STIRRUP Cay: This was the highlight of our trip. We rented a small cabana and it was worth every penny. The wait staff was very attentive and brought us everything we wanted. We loved having a place where we could be in or out of the sun and loved seeing the coconut palms dripping with fruit right next to us. One of the island resident staff even showed the kids how to get coconut water out of one and let them try it. It made their day. NASSUA: we did the Blue Lagoon Island excursion and also loved that. SPLASH ACADEMY: We couldn't keep the kids out of Splash. They had so much fun. The staff were exceptional. The circus show they put on the last day was so cute and you could tell how much fun the kids were having. SHIP: The ship is beautiful and we had a wonderful week. I have never seen a friendlier staff. The hotel director, Deepak, was one of the most hands-on I have seen. His secretary, Charry, made special efforts to make sure we were happy all week. (Hint: make sure you go to the Meet and Mingle! In fact, this was also the best meet and mingle I have attended. They held it in the District Brew House and all of the senior staff attended. Free beer samples and food samples from Food Republic were accompanied by entertainment in the form of a musical duo.) We loved the Escape and can't wait to go on her again! Read Less
