Cruising on the Norwegian Escape~February 2018~Kim F.
Thanks to Nikki, we just returned home from a wonderful week in the Caribbean on the Norwegian Escape. When we decided a little last minute to book a family vacation in February, Nikki came through with fantastic options and pricing. With her guidance, we chose a ship and itinerary that were a perfect fit for our family of four (2 adults and two children, ages 8 and 6).
Our ship left from the Port of Miami and traveled to the Caribbean and the Bahamas. It was 7 days of pure bliss! The ship is quite large and almost brand new. We enjoyed the wide variety of food venues, entertainment, and kid-friendly activities.
The highlights of our adventures on the islands were bobsledding and navigating Dunn's River Falls in Jamaica as well as Stingray City and snorkeling in Grand Cayman. Great Stirrup Cay (Norwegian's private island) was a fantastic beach day enjoyed by all.
Initially, we did not have high expectations for the kids club onboard. However, after one visit to Splash Academy the first night of our trip, our kids literally begged us to attend each and every day thereafter. The staff was friendly, cheerful, and engaged as they had themes for the kids each evening of the cruise. It provided a perfect mix of quality family time and a few hours of alone time with the hubby (which was a nice surprise)!
Nikki's thoughtful planning, quality recommendations, and helpful tips ensured that our vacation was truly a "homerun!" Each and every trip that we book in the future will be through Travel with Nikki!
