We were on the same cruise. And yes the first few days were cold , windy and rainy. The cruise director should have had more things to do. We never saw the cruise director. Prior cruises the CD was always visible. Past cruises we had Bingo Boy “Sinan”, Julie, and John
during the cruise we talked to many people and not one person enjoyed the cruise and these were various ages. There wasn’t enough entertainment. Or you would go to a bar to have a drink and there was always a private function.
they put Dennis Veator who played guitar in Tobacco Road. You could not hear him as you had the people at the bar talking, had people going in and out the waterfront door and you had people walking on the aisle. He played in the brewhouse and you heard him much better
no music by the pool nor Spice H2O
we heard from a family that 3 ropes on the rope course were broken and there wasn’t enough water going down the water slide and people were getting stuck
2 of the elevators were not working properly
other than all of that, the crew was outstanding. Food was very good. Did 5 specialty restaurants and they were yummy.
This is our 15th cruise with NCL and was disappointed with the Escape
Embarkation was was a breeze but debarkation was mass confusion.
i am glad that the Escape is not going out of NY next year. Looking forward to sailing on the new ship
