  1. Thanks! Sorry you couldn't make the cruise. And as far as the casino goes, just blind luck lol
  2. I liked the Waterfront, deck 8, for sail away. Enjoy your trip! Glad you had a great time too! The food was great, casino was great, everything was great! Thanks so much! Very Welcome! Couldn't agree more
  3. Unreal. Some people aren't happy unless they're miserable!
  4. I'm glad I wasn't the only one that noticed!
  5. 05/05/19 - 05/12/19 Hey gang, Bob from Connecticut here. I read a lot of good info here leading up to my cruise, so I figured I could give back by joining (instead of staying as a lurker) and maybe help some folks out. My wife and I are in our 40's. This was only our 2nd cruise, having previously been on the Jewel years ago. This is the first time we were on the Escape. Instead of a "review" I thought I'd just share some random thoughts. Hope this helps someone! Food - We thought was fantastic. We only did Cagneys as a specialty restaurant, and really enjoyed it. The main dinning room food was very good as well. We had the stuffed chicken, prime rib, a shrimp dish, mushroom raviolis, to name a few. We also gave Pinchos Tapas Bar a shot. Just got meat and cheese boards there, but it was great! Entertainment - We saw Choir of Man, and can't say enough good things about that show! It was very entertaining, and fun. If you sit towards the front, it seemed that you have a chance to get beer served to you! It's a must see! Also took in the Dueling Pianos which was a lot of fun too. Casino - We aren't big gamblers, but we did extremely well! I hit a decent slot jackpot that we had to fill out tax paperwork for 😉 which gave me the confidence to learn some other games I've never played (3 card poker, texas hold em' ultimate (or something like that), and 21. I did well at everything I tried (beginners luck? lol) so with my slot winnings and table game winnings, it was enough to pay for our trip, and probably enough to book 2 more! I saw several people winning, including a $10,000 hit, and several in the $1,000-$2,000 range. I'm sure there were more losers than winners tho lol. Bars - Had the drink perk, but we aren't big drinkers. Had 3-4 drinks per day max, which is a lot for us. The bars we went to included O'Sheahans, 5 O'Clock Somewhere, and the Mojito bar. Never waited too long for a drink. Staff - 95% very friendly with smiles on their faces all day. 5% could have been friendlier, but I understand everyone is entitled to a rough day! Other passengers - This is a hard one to explain.. there seemed to be TONS of people complaining about everything and anything! And for the life of me, I could not understand why. I guess some people just live to complain. All in all, it was a GREAT cruise! If anyone has any questions, I'll do my best to answer.
