Everything.. ESCAPE (live 29 Oct 2015!)

It's kind of hard for me to say because the weather wasn't too warm on any of our sea days, so I did not get to see it at full utilization. Overall though, the water feature was nice to look at but...

Will Anthem have a water park / ropes course?

You're entitled to your opinion, but to me, and I'm sure many other cruisers, it simply looks like a lot of fun. NCL Epic is a special kind of ugly, but I found Breakaway, Getaway, and now the...

Agree 100%, both with the first point that it would be a nice public space enhancement, and with the fear in the second point.

Frankly, if that area becomes fully unavailable to the general public...

I actually find myself getting more excited about Escape, which we'll hopefully be booking sometime soon, than Anthem. My one unanswered question with Escape is whether NCL will be increasing the...

Literally the only thing keeping me from booking Escape is definitive answers about the available open deck space. What will SpiceH20 look like? Will it have a pool? Are we sure that nice space on...

Escape - Sky's the Limit Info Released

So far so good. The main things I'm looking for on Escape are a bit more open deck space for laying out around the main pool, and a proper pool added to the area equivalent to Spice H20 on Breakaway....

Entertainment on RCI is excellent too. Liberty is actually a larger ship than Breakaway and has lots to offer as well. I really enjoyed both ships.

I wouldn't do the 5 night over the 7 night period, assuming cost / limited time isn't an issue. That would make the decision for me.

That said, I've done both Breakaway and Liberty and Liberty's...

Right. For that reason I've always felt those numbers were more useful as a comparative tool -- i.e., after Quantum's completed her entire first season (to increase the sample size), lets see how...

Lisa Richard Summit CD

Not anymore, he moved over to X, first in a shoreside position and more recently as a CD. Either way he's definitely with X now.

I'm perfectly happy with the 3 port calls on a ship such as Oasis and Allure with so much to do, but agree 110% that Nassau is a total waste and effectively makes it a 2 port cruise for us. At least...

LOL! That statement is, at best, presumptuous. The jury is most certainly still out as to whether Quantum's launch, still very much underway in her first few weeks of service, was "successful."

NCL Breakaway early arrival to Nassau

Haha thanks, I somehow missed Robin's chart.

Good luck to those sailing these next few weeks. We really enjoyed GSC!
