When the canopy is closed, the courtyard is a Atrium - Deck 6 Art Galleries on the Escape This was the only peaceful moment of our cruise.  This was the worst cruise ever.  Horrible staff, unhelpful crew and just an overall "I dont give a sh:t culture".  Very disappointed in this cruise.  This tile could have also been the nickel and dime cruise cuz boy do they squeeze every red cent out of you. This is a rather unusual post for this forum, but I am hoping some of you experienced cruisers may be able to help me. I was a first time cruiser on the Norwegian Escape Eastern Caribbean cruise from July 23-31, departure from Port Miami. On my second day on the ship, I ran into one of its naval officers in the Garden Cafe. We held each other My mother relaxing on Spice H2O during departure from Miami Spice H2O Spice H2O becomes a nightclub at night Mom relaxing on Spice H2O Spice H2O Spice H2O Wake view from Spice H2O Spice H2O Mom relaxing beside hot tub at Spice H2O Tyler with us just having fun. The Catacombs The Barcelona Airport The ship was beautiful, the food was ok , the main problem that I have with Norwegian is the music selection, I don Meeting the captain on the 'dress up' night Oh What A Night. Great meal and catered for my gluten allergy too After Balcony view St Thomas Harbor Charlotte Amalie Megan's Bay view from mountain. Leaving Miami Bahamas This is the exit hallway of the kids club called Splash Academy for the Nor Escape .  Greatly disappointed in this cruise.  There are limited areas to "lounge" with friends.  The "Atrium " looks like a crowded airport terminal.  Each night the crew had to wheel in stacks of folding chairs for guests due to lack of seating.   Ridiculous!   There is a $7 charge for using room service.   $75 for 100 minutes to use their WIFI!!!!.  No washer and dryer facilities on board for guests to do their own laundry.  Very disorganized.  Only plus.  Friendly staff, excellent food.  Please take me back Carnival! !! Vibe Beach Club Halloween! Halloween Decor Inside the ship show stopper it changes color at night. What Cruise With The Houle I pre-ordered the cheese tray, and it was well worth the price for a great Room service one of the mornings. Yep, Anna and Ben (me lol) got all dressed up Nov 2, to celebrate our 20th The chandelier in the main atrium changed colors.  I loved when it was Seah Picture of the front of the Escape. We have sailed in Norwegian exclusively for years. This is the first time I can say I was disappointed. I now know I do not like these huge mega ships. It is beautiful (what I got to see of it anyway). I have mobility issues and could never walk any further than the atrium. When we docked in Nassau the distance one had to walk to even get off of the pier area was so far I couldn Performers from After Midnight Wedding before cruise departs Miami. Hot tub view- spectacular View from our balcony The Brat Pack - amazing show WIFI wifi What happened NCL?  This ship was nothing like the getaway.  First, there were never enough sun chairs. People would save 5 at a time for HOURS and when we told the towel guy he said there is nothing they can do because then security gets involved and is a bigger issue.  Any other ship had a 30 min. Leave period then they would give up your chairs. One time we had to go to the very top of the deck where there is no music and super windy and they told us to leave, because of the wind but didn Sea day. Saying goodbye to the Virgin Islands. I have nothing against Its not the group that we are mad at... Its that NCL allowed them to reserv This is by the casino on the 7th floor. Sunset on the Waterfront, Deck 8 My Pet. Feeding time.

These pics were taken on our excursion to Jost Van Dyke (Rebel Yell Catamaran) which I HIGHLY recommend doing!! One of may precious surprises when we came back to our cabin at night. Taking off and getting so excited! our last sunset sailing from Nassau to Miami shower. Sunset last night at sea View from Balcony This is the first thing I saw when arriving in the Bahamas ! This vacation was so amazing! Met some fabulous people, great island adventures (except Tortola taxis service and drivers). Entertainment was great! Even my 12 year old loved the "games" such as battle of the sexes, and the celebrity dance off. Service was Top Notch, martinis by the pool were delish thanks to Irene S., and she always brought us drinks just as I took my last sip. Mangattem Room the BEST dining spot, and the Wine Bar(Cellars) had the best Bartenders - Ronaldo and Joselyn! Love you guys! ❤️ Sunset during dinner Vibe...best servers, great retreat. Special touches Towel animal in our cabin Ready to sail!

Towel art.... Haven sun deck This is a photo of us and our FANTASTIC CRUISE DIRECTOR TYLER GREY AND FELLOW CREW MEMBER THE ONE AND ONLY JACKY TANG. These guys really made our trip that much better with their uplifting personalities and constant high energy. The jacky and tyler show was one of my favorite parts of the cruise. even though my day was always great because i was on the ship, watching their show always made my day that much better better. Jacky tang was also the best bingo caller ever. He called the number at the perfect speed and even better, with enthusiasm!

This is my favorite. Our crew on embarkation day! Dress up or don’t night. Picture taking all around the ship The Vibe lounge area. Wasy, washy with Rowen! So many things to do. Twenty stories of fun, food, and entertainment. Bowling, classes, pampering, pools, water slides, zip line, ropes, world class music. I was going out to diner one evening and put on all my jewelry but decided against wearing my earrings as they were quite heavy and so I left them on my table in my stateroom and by the time I came back one earring was gone and my room had been turned down for the evening. I searched everywhere despite knowing I had left it on the table before going down to guest services to report this. 

The ship called in security after I reported it missing and they first of all came searched my entire room as if to say I was lying or as if to say I was a thief. The male security was digging through our underwear one after the other despite there being a female security with him but then I did not mind because they said this was the procedure. They even took photos and then they told me they would contact me the next morning not too early.

The next day they did not contact me as they had promised so I rang guest services late afternoon only to be told by the lady they had concluded their inves Atrium Chandelier The Escape Theater The Casino Sujan was our other bartender at Spice H2O, making us amazing drinks!

Amazing Cruise! Lots of fun, lots of entertainment, food, drinks and nice excursions in 4 different Countries. Our family with Terry "TT" Sea Day 11/5/2017 Sea Day 11/5/2017 The view from the balcony was gorgeous - it was great waking up early and w Touring the ship in Bahamas touring ship in Bahamas, 5 other ships in port Haven Lounge, Deck 17, looking towards elevator (runs between Decks 17-19 i Totally disappointed & somewhat disgusted by the money we spent for a terrible week.  First there was WAY too many obnoxious, intoxicated, people cruising, along with too many unsupervised children. (The unlimited drink package sure didn’t impress a lot of us cruisers!!) We saw kids take food from the buffet, only to throw the food back on the buffet bar using their hands. GROSS!! There was NEVER any deck chairs available because people were “all day chair hoarders”.  Customer service told us they monitor this problem...what a joke!!!  When we used the tender boats, there were no rules & no guidance as to letting the top level disembark & then the bottom level.  Instead the bottom level ran pushing up through people, knocking people over like a wild herd of cows. TERRIBLE!!  The food, whether in dining rooms or buffet, seemed to be geared or quantity, not quality; just not tasty.  The service was very lacking & slow, compared to our other cruise. The smoking in the Casino was a killer.
