I had the opportunity last month to board the Norwegian Escape for a quick tour so I could document it for CruiseInd. This review will encompass the public areas and select cabins. It will consist of high-res panoramas and 360 images. The 360 photos can also be opened on your phone and you can spin around with them. You also can open it on use them via google cardboard. It’s pretty cool so make sure to try it out.
I boarded the ship in Miami while it was being turned-around for another cruise.
The public areas start on deck 05. There are cabins, the kids area (wasn’t opened in port) and a private dining room for the Taste restaurant one deck above.
At the very front of the deck is the bottom lever of the main theater which is only accessible from the deck above. The deck really starts with a stairwell. This is what the typical stairwell looks like onboard.
Just behind that is the Supper Club. A reservation-only venue where you get dinner and a show to accompany it.
Walking back, there’s one of two main atrium’s. On embarkation day, this is really the main entrance.

There also a bar and a cafe there as well.
There’s also a small internet cafe tucked away in the corner.
As we walk aft there’s an art gallery in the hallway.
After walking through that, you emerge at the bottom floor of the larger second atrium. This is the more impressive of the two atrium’s. This one goes up three decks and has a huge chandelier in the center. There are also stairs for reaching the different levels too. Makes for a great photo-op.

Inside this atrium, there are a couple of venues that branch off from it. This is where Headliners comedy club is located.
NCL’s upscale french restaurant Le Bistro is also located here.
Just past the atrium is the Japanese Teppanyaki restaurant.
At the end of the deck are two more restaurants. There’s also the Mixx Bar that’s wedged in between them.
Just past the Mixx bar this neat sitting area.
