Norwegian Escape Cruise Review by diamondboy
- Sail Date: December 2018
- Destination: Caribbean
- Cabin Type: Inside Stateroom
It is not the best ship some of the staff are not very friendly the spa was overpriced usually you can book before you get on the ship and they give you the online price, not this cruise, I got to the port and The gentleman said no discount you either book it with him for the full price or I could do it on the Shuo and wait in line and waste time he said the reason was the spa was pretty much sold out Turns out it was not and was very crowded they actually were selling spa packages mid cruise they did not have enough heated chairs you had to go early in the morning it was not very relaxing more frustrating and felt like I wasted 300 for nothing could have spent that money on the islands doing day passes at the resorts.
On the bigger ships, you are just a number a cruise ship that holds over 4,000 people has a pool with a capacity of under 100 the layout is horrible the decor is terrible. Second time on this ship the only reason is it is convenient but if another cruise line was leaving out of the same port and around the same dates I would probably choose them over the escape. May seem cheap but in the long run, it turns out to be the same if not more then traveling another line. Norwegian has to allot of hidden fees that they don’t tell you up front.
The casino staff was not very friendly never saw the casino host the payouts were horrible and layout was not good they have machines next to one of the clubs where the music is blasting and people are sitting at machines not playing but just watching people dance.
