Norwegian Cruise

We went on a cruise of the Caribbean and it was wonderful. Our ship was the Norwegian Escape. Huge and lots of things to do. This was our 1st cruise and we weren't sure how it would be compared to All Inclusive Resorts and it was a great trip, lots of fun, lots of laughs and entertainment. The ship had things for the whole family to do. The Entertainment Staff (Evan) and Cruise Director Andre went above and beyond to keep everyone laughing and having a good time. Food was really good. Loved that you can eat at the time you want instead of having assigned eating times for the week. Many different restaurants to keep the food a nice variety for the week. We did the drink package and that was well worth it. Drinks were good no matter what we ordered. We generally change it up with our drinks while on vacation.

Cabin was large enough for the 4 of us. We had not issues with storage or space to move around. We did have a balcony room and it was well worth it. We slept with the door cracked at night and it was so peaceful listening to the ocean. We slept so good!

The transition on and off the ship was very smooth and they gave you lots of information to direct you what to do, helpful if it's your 1st cruise like it was for us.

They had kids clubs, this would be the only down fall in our opinion with the fact that the age limits are so strict that our two girls would have been split up the whole time. We wanted to even have our older (14 years old) daughter go with our younger (12 years old) daughter to her club level and they do not allow it. Beyond the clubs they have a lot for the kids to do, mini gold, ropes course, arcade, so we just had check in times with the girls when they went off without us.

We went during Spring Break so at times it felt crowded however anywhere you go during a holiday time like that will be busy!

St. Thomas
We did an Excursion that we found in the downtown shopping area. The price was great and much cheaper than if we booked it through the ship or travel agency.
Tortola
My faviorite island of the 3. So pretty, people are super friendly, colorful and clean. We wandered around the downtown shopping area for a few hours.

The Bahamas
Fun island. People in the shopping area are a bit more aggressive. Beach and water is the most beautiful beach I have seen. The water was soooo blue! Lots to walk around and see.
