Our Favorite Things to Do Aboard the Norwegian Escape

Norwegian Escape

Get ready to sail on one of the most exciting ships on the seas! Norwegian Escape is ready to whisk you away to The Caribbean from Miami and Orlando, Canada & New England from New York, and the Mediterranean from Rome. Indulging in every whim is what unforgettable vacations are made of. 

Unlike some cruise ships that just stick to one or two itineraries, Norwegian Escape hits pretty much every corner of the world. The freedom to cruise anywhere makes Norwegian Escape a great option if you're not entirely set on your destination. Discover a new world of freedom and flexibility on Norwegian Escape, and some of our favorite things to do aboard this ship! 

1. 25 Places to Eat

Cheeseburger in paradise? Check. Teppanyaki at the Hibachi restaurant? Yep! There are an astounding 25 places to catch a bite to eat, the Escape has it all, including a Latin-infused seafood restaurant and the first of its kind at sea led by Chef Jose Garces. And if you are looking for something to satisfy a late-night craving, 24-hour room service is available (and included in your cruise fare). 

2. Grab a Brew or Cocktail

After you eat, what's next? A cocktail! In partnership with Miami-based Wynwood Brewing Company, Norwegian Escape features the first craft beer hall in the cruise industry. District Brew House serves up 24 beers on tap -- including La Rubia Blonde Ale, brewed especially for Escape -- along with a selection of 50 bottles. Stop by Prime Meridian, aptly named because of its close proximity to three separate restaurants, for a pre-dinner drink. Or head to Spice H20 if you're looking to escape to an adults-only environment. There's plenty of options! 

3. Amazing Live Shows

The Escape is home to not just one, but two Broadway caliber shows including onboard productions of "After Midnight, bringing the big-band jazz of the Cotton Club era, and "Million Dollar Quartet," about the chance recording session between music legends Johnny Cash, Elvis Presley, Jerry Lee Lewis, and Carl Perkins. 

And if you're going on a seven-day cruise, you'll have a new show to watch every night. These seven shows cover everything from Tony award-winning musicals to comedy acts. The best part: these shows are included in your cruise fare!

4. Spend the Day in the Spa

Drop your kids off ages 3-12 at the Splash Academy and head to the Mandara Spa, voted the World's Best Cruise Spa by World Spa Awards. Relax with a hot-stone massage, one of over 50 specialty treatments offered, including a cool chill in the Mandara Spa Snow Room. Watch as real snow falls to the ground, and warm up again afterward with a complimentary cup of coffee or tea. Treatments range from the classic to the luxurious including facials, massages, acupuncture and a full menu of services. 

5. Take a walk on The Waterfront

When cruising, don't you wish you could just stroll along the water in a peaceful and serene setting? That's exactly what Norwegian Escape's quarter-mile oceanfront promenade provides. The Waterfront, offers first-class amenities all within walking distance, with an unmatched ocean backdrop to get that perfect selfie or group photo. The Waterfront mimics the look and feel of a boardwalk, but on a boat! Pro-tip: head here to watch the sunset.

6. Get an adrenaline rush on the Ropes Course

Not for those afraid of heights! Aboard the Escape is a three-story ropes complex built for adrenaline junkies. You'll have the choice to blaze down five different Sky Rail zip lines which extend out over the ocean waters, or you can try to walk across one of two sky-high planks without panicking. There are 99 different challenges you can try ranging from easy to difficult.
