we booked the escape a week and a half before the cruise and we did not know what to expect. Some of our friends loved the ship others hated it. SURPRISE we loved it. SO much to do on this ship much more than its sister ship breakaway. We love dancing and every night we danced from 7 till 11 without stopping. There are 4 bands on the ship all great they took turns playing. They were all great but we especially loved the Funky Duo and the Classic Tones. There was all kinds of music we love Latin dancing and we were not disappointed. There were two shows you had to reserve ahead of time the Choir of Men which was excellent so much fun and After Midnight which was also great. There are comedians in Levity make sure to reserve the shows as soon as you get on the ship so you don't have to wait in stand by lines.There are the dueling pianos on every other nights instead of the comedians. Then there is the Supper Club ;presenting different fun acts most of the time it is free so again sign up the first day if you think you might be interested. We actually just showed up before the shows started and sat in the back and just watched the shows. So much to do on this ship. Only disadvantages were the H2O which is outside and in bad weather was pushed into a smaller area inside and the fact that the Atrium not a humongous space was used for many acitiviies lots of noise and kids when the material is adult material. Food was very good. We love the fact that O'Sheehan's Bar and Grill is open till 4AM. Overall a wonderful experience

An excellent surprise
