Meet Norwegian Cruise Line's Newest Ship, Escape

Norwegian Cruise Line's newest ship the Escape Norwegian Cruise Line

Norwegian's newest and largest vessel, Escape,  is so full of action and entertainment you'll be forgiven if you forget that you're at sea instead of on land. The ship has enough activities to fill every hour of the day, including the largest waterpark at sea and a ropes course 20-decks above the water; a "snow" room to chill out in and a rock "grotto" that turns into an outdoor disco come evening; and two Broadway shows, After Midnight and Million Dollar Quartet, indoors. Honestly, there's more to do on this 165,000-ton ship than in many small cities. And when you're ready to rest (or at least relax), there are 21 pools and the massive Mandara spa
