In today's highly technological world, it should come as no surprise that the name “Norwegian Escape” was chosen through a Facebook contest, winning out from a selection of 10 potential names.
The “Escape” offers many of the same features as the “Joy,” but travels to more tropical locations like the Bahamas. The focus on this ship is broad, with entertainment and activities for singles, adults and children.
The Atrium is a mid-ship hub area with a large LED screen, dance area and live entertainment. The Supper Club is a theatrical dining venue with aerial acrobatics. Kids' venues include the Aqua Park, Splash Academy and Guppies Nursery. Teens have the Entourage Teen Centre with table football, video arcades and jukeboxes.
In addition to the standard onboard restaurants and bars, there are a few distinctive places to enjoy treats, like Carlo's Bake Shop, where guests can take cupcake classes. Mixx Bar offers pre-dinner cocktails and has a cigar lounge and a mojito bar. There's also The Distinct Brew House, offering 24 draft beers on tap and 50 different bottled beers, and the Atrium Cafe & Bar, which serves specialty tea and coffee. Dolce Gelato is where you can get a scoop of Italian ice cream.
