We picked this cruise because of the time frame and the itinerary. We had not been to these ports before and will not pick this itinerary again. Ports were okay but just not for us. We loved all the special attention we received in the dining rooms casino and shops which was probably due to our haven status. The staff were super great. The ship was large but noticed that smokers filled the 678 Ocean Place with smoke for the entire cruise. A better ventilation system is needed. Our room was spacious and we loved the balcony........spent most of our time there instead of the haven courtyard. NCL freestyle cruising suited us to just do nothing and sometimes do a little of something (see a show, bingo or sunbathing) We are now planning our next cruise and hope it is on the Escape. Did I mention that I loved the shops on board? Loved the "Life is Good" store the best.

How often can we escape

This is a handicapped room and loved all the little gizmos. What we did not love was that the bed was too high
