Hi Doug. A lot of the reviews talk about the Escape being crowded. What are your thoughts? Also do you think we will have problems getting reservations for the entertainment as well as speciality dining where we have not signed up yet and we are only 19 days from sailing. Thanks.

You can only sign up for After Midnight and The Brat Pack ahead of time. The Company Men as well as the comedy shows and the rotating Supper Club entertainer all can be reserved as soon as you board. Dining slots are only open for a small percentage right now, the majority will open up as soon as you board. Book it before you go to lunch. Cagney's and Teppanyaki will be sold out by sail away. There are stand by lines that open up 10 minutes prior to all shows since that is when no shows lost their reservations.
The worst crowding you'll see all week is at the elevator banks right after muster drill. Second worst is poolside on sea days. Enjoy, it's a great ship. I will be on her in September for the third straight time.

Can you let us know if people dress up for the 80s party? I will be on the Escape for my birthday week in September and will be dressing up for the 80s deck party and hoping others do as well!

This guy and his wig were the only "dress up" I really witnessed on my sailing.



But who cares, Tyler and his gang will love you guys.

If there's a drink of the day... it's well-hidden on the Freestyle Daily. O'Sheehan's has the pork spare ribs special.

We're lazy - still in bed and overhearing that we've been cleared for HC. A change from last time we were here: "Only cash and credit cards can be used in this port of call - Harvest Caye"
