Norwegian Escape

Norwegian Escape is the first ship in Norwegian Cruise Line’s Breakaway Plus Class of ocean liners. It’s the twin fleet mate to Norwegian Bliss, the largest of Norwegian’s ships, and it’s a ship that will make her maiden voyage in March of 2017. Norwegian Cruise Line fans got to name Escape, and Bliss, as part of a contest that provided a list of options to choose from.

 The Ship

If you want to sail on a cruise ship that’s huge, innovative, and luxurious in every way, consider a voyage on Norwegian Escape. This vessel is impressive all around, with gorgeous design and amazing technological features. Marine wildlife artist, Guy Harvey, created the hull art for Escape and it features a turtle, ray, and fish looking like they’re having just as much fun as passengers surely will have. Norwegian Escape is one of the most energy-efficient ships to sail the open ocean, which makes it one of the top ships in our travel book.

The Itineraries

Escape on seven-night Eastern Caribbean cruises from Miami, and go on many other adventures, on Norwegian Escape. This luxury ocean liner is all about catering to travelers’ every whim and taking them to stunning locales in some of the most magical places on earth. Make your great escape on a short getaways or take an elaborate vacation. It’s all possible on Norwegian Escape.


Norwegian Escape’s three-deck dining and entertainment area, known as 678 Ocean Place, offers similar restaurant options to what you’d find on other Breakaway Class ships. Many of the for-fee eateries return in this space, on Escape, such as Cagney’s Steakhouse, Le Bistro, Tappanyaki, and Moderno Churrascaria. There are two main dining rooms on Norwegian Escape, which are divided into three venues: Savor, Taste, and The Manhattan Room.

Bars and Clubs

The Skyline Bar is a new bar for Norwegian Escape and Norwegian Cruise Lines. It’s housed in the Escape Casino and it’s loaded with brilliant gold and metallic finishes, perfect for reveling in as you enjoy games of video poker and tantalizing cocktails. Another first for Escape, and Norwegian, is Tobacco Road Bar – a venue inspired by the oldest bar in Miami that recently closed its doors on land.


Norwegian Escape features an aqua park with a free-fall water slide, a pair of side-by-side water slides that allow competitors to race each other, an outdoor two-story climbing structure, a nine-hole mini golf course, a three-story rope course, and a kids’ Splash Academy. Passengers enjoy activities like getting massage treatments, working out in a Technogym, gambling in a casino, watching Broadway shows, and spending evenings in a swanky supper club.
