Norwegian Escape is a ship in the Breakaway Plus class and is part of the shipping company Norwegian Cruise Line's fleet. The ship came 2015 and can take 4266 passengers (counted on two in each cabin, which means good much more when it is fully loaded).

We crossed with the ship last winter and were crazy happy with our cruise! On board there is a great deal to do and test, from daring activities of the more sporty battle to culinary pleasures and fine environments.

A strong card is that the range is wide so that it fits most; regardless of age or preference. Below we have gathered our favorite lines to choose this ship; 8 reasons that may also inspire you to test this ship next time!

1. Free-fall canoe Aqua Loop

Do you hear of those who like to feel the adrenaline rush through the body, then the water slide with free fall is something for you! The queue usually winds its way up to the top of the ship, and you are frantically frightened by frightened looks but everyone looks happy and seems to be running again and again. The first time is horrible, especially before the floor disappears below you, but then you just want to get up again ...!

2. Pool deck with something for everyone

If Aqua Loop is scary there are five other water slides to choose from, from the wide man swimming through to the kindest in Kids Aqua Park. The fact that the range is varied both in experience and "degree of creep" is perfect because all ages can find a sleigh that one feels fit even the courage. Or if you just want to vary for the sake of the cause. When we crossed with Norwegian Escape Aqua Racer soon became the obvious favorite that we went over and over again ...

3. Games room also for the smallest

Guppy nursery is a super nice playroom for the smallest. As a parent, it is wonderful to see that everyone is good and enjoying the family, even the smallest. And they do here. In the playroom there is access to leaders as well as educational toys, activities with fluttering shawls and music or changing tables, breastfeeding chair and soothing music. On the walls there are activity boards in a suitable height and all furnishings are in cheerful colors. A place to relax for both large and small.

4. Eat dinner out on the deck

On how many cruise ships are you not only hanging in the evenings, even though you are cruising in the Caribbean or the Mediterranean times of the year when it is warm and nice even though the sun has gone down? We Swedes love to sit outside, sun or not, and at Norwegian Escape you can. The Waterfront is called the deck where many of the restaurants and bars also have outdoor dining, which is great! Choose from tapas, fresh fish, a juicy steak or Italian - and why not start with a cool drink in The 5 o'Clock Somewhere Bar.

5. Enjoy the whole world food at Food republic

New restaurant concept at sea and news at Norwegian Escape. Those behind Food Republic are Miami-based The Pubbelly Restaurant Group. Here, a fusion of flavors from all over the world is served and motto like "sharing is caring" and "global fusion" is what applies here. So you can order several dishes to share with their company and there is plenty to choose from, asian (sushi, noodles etc.) as well as internationally (luxurious mini-burgers, tuna tuna) and desserts that are at the two-for-level !

6. Pub with brewery feeling and own beer

All beer lovers see here; The District Brew House first appeared on Norwegian Escape and has a cool little raw feeling with corrugated sheet metal, wood and leather in the interior while at the same time serving just over 70 different beers; 24 in barrel and around 50 in bottle. You can buy a glass or order a whole test, play games, check out some sports program or just talk to friends. The view offers both view of the sea as well as into a specially tempered room with beer barrel.

7. Go on the plank as a pirate

The adventure track Rope Course is also available on other ships, both within the shipping company and outside, but this is the largest at sea! Here it is widespread on three floors with 99 obstacles to get on, zipline and even a plank to go over - just like a pirate. Once out on the narrow plank you can pull in a string, then you will be photographed and can buy the photo afterwards. Fortunately, you are always stuck with a rope that runs freely in a beam above all obstacles, but it is easy to forget when you are 50 meters above sea level - believe me!

8. Relax with massage, water, heat and salt

Those who have had enough of sports and activity (or food also for that matter) can apply here, to the Pulse Fitness Center and Spa. In the gym you have access to modern classes of various kinds as well as PT and health tests. In the large spa area there are many different saunas, relax beds with sea views, "vitality pool" (hot pool with underwater jet and cobra with fall for shoulder massage) tea station and more. A room that belongs to the more unusual is the salt room, beautifully lit from behind the salt blocks on the wall. Sitting here is healthy for the respiratory tract, in which case it is relaxing!
