Norwegian Escape Cruise Review by giodoc
- Sail Date: November 2018
- Destination: Bahamas
- Cabin Type: Family Balcony Stateroom
Service was inconsistent with us receiving outstanding service at one restaurant and then absolutely poor service at another. Medium rare was delivered well done, incorrect drink orders, no bread, no butter, asked multiple times for lemon and things of that nature. Normally not a big deal, but it was happening nearly every day at different meals and restaurants. For example, breakfast would be fantastic with suburb service then dinner would be filled with all sorts of service errors and vice versa the next day. Totally inconsistent the entire cruise.
ULTIMATE drink package was totally and completely insane in the way it works. Get this, an Irish coffee for $9.95 was included but not a $1.95 espresso or a bottle of water. You can order any alcoholic drink you wanted under $15 but not water, espresso or herbal tea? Espresso with Bailey's yes! Espresso with no alcohol, no! Budweiser (or any beer) yes! Pellegrino no! Totally idiotic and mind numbing.
Smoking is supposedly only allowed in designated areas but trust me, it reeks of smoke all over that ship. The 7th deck is where the casino is located and that entire floor is completely engulfed in smoke.
Overall it just wasn't relaxing or enjoyable consistently throughout the cruise. You can expect little annoyances to happen but when they happen frequently it's kid of like stubbing your toe 12 times in 12 different places. Eventually you just want to put shoes back on when technically you're on the cruise to relax and take your shoes off.
