If you’re a fan of Norwegian Cruise Lines, then we know exactly what you’ve been waiting for. You’ve been waiting for the Norwegian Escape to make its grand debut. Well, the good news for you is this: that grand debut is almost upon us. Once we get to the middle of November 2015, the Norwegian Escape will be sailing the seas for good and for all. It’s going to be awesome.
Naturally, we understand your excitement. Everything we’ve read and seen has us convinced that the Escape is poised to become the finest ship in Norwegian’s already impressive line. But what are the things that excite us the most? What is this ship going to offer that you simply won’t find anywhere else? That’s what we’re going to show you.
Below, we’ve collected the 10 most exciting things about Norwegian’s ship. Some of these – especially if you’re a Norwegian fan already – you may already know about. Others, however, are certain to surprise you! So, just what are these 10 things, and why is it that we (just like you) can’t wait for the Escape to finally get out there? Let’s take a look!
1. Drink Up!
Jimmy Buffet and cruises go hand-in-hand, which is why we’re so excited about Jimmy Buffet’s 5 O’Clock Somewhere Bar.
2. Chase It Down
Keeping the branding consistent, you can grab something to soak up all that booze at Jimmy Buffet’s Margaritaville At Sea.
3. Beer, Please
Hey, tropical cocktails aren’t for everyone! For the rest, there’s beer – of which there’s plenty at The District Brewhouse, which will feature 24 taps!
4. Oh That Spa
The spas on NCL’s ships are always awesome, but the Escape’s Mandara Spa may prove to be the line’s very best.
When it comes to ropes courses, the Escape will have the biggest, baddest and most thrilling one on the seas. Hands down.
6. Walk The Plank
Want to feel what it’s like to stand with nothing but the ocean below you? You’ll be able to on the Escape.
7. Haute Cuisine
Celebrity chef Jose Garces will have his own restaurant onboard; it’s called Pincho Tapas Bar, and it’s going to be delish!
When it comes to taking in a show, the Escape will have you covered. They’re producing the Million Dollar Quartet in the ship’s state-of-the-art theater.
9. Mini Golf
Kids love the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, which is why they’ll love the awesome, open-air mini golf course.
10. Big Living
Capable of carrying up to 4,200 passengers, the Escape begins offering the chance to enjoy big-cruise living in November of 2015.
