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 use the phone app to reserve once you are on the ship or do you have to go to the desk? I also thought I read somewhere that you can place your reservations on touchscreens throughout the ship.

Yes to both. If you have the app set up you can do it while you are waiting to board. If you wait until you get on board, it's the wall mounted kiosks or at the box office, which opens at 1130 for entertainment reservations. Dining reservations need to be done at Headliners or the kiosk or the app.

Loved your review of the Escape. I will be going a 2nd time on the 20th of January. I have made reservations to Maya Chan Beach with a small deposit, Do they send out an invoice for the remainder of your balance? We can’t wait to get out of this crazy weather! Looking forward to reading your next review!

Yep! You’ll get an email 6-8 weeks out with a PayPal invoice for the final payment.

Speaking of Maya Chan, a post on their Facebook page last week...

Being that we are new to NCL, and will be sailing on the Escape out of NY in May for our son’s wedding, I decided to start reading some reviews of the ship. I started with this review, and loved it so much I went through all 44 pages at once. Now I’m off to read the other reviews by TheDougOut!
