Cruise Escape!


Setting sail on the magnificent NCL Escape ship for a 7-day Caribbean cruise was an adventure of a lifetime. From the picturesque shores of Puerto Plata to the enchanting landscapes of St. Thomas, Tortola, and Great Stirrup Cay, each port of call was a unique and unforgettable experience.

Puerto Plata: Our first stop was the stunning Puerto Plata. As the ship docked, I was greeted by the sight of lush green mountains meeting the crystal-clear waters of the Caribbean. I ventured to the Amber Cove port, a lively destination with a myriad of activities. From lounging by the pool with a tropical drink in hand to exploring the vibrant local marketplace, Puerto Plata provided a delightful introduction to the Caribbean’s natural beauty and warm hospitality.

St. Thomas: The next destination on our itinerary was the postcard-perfect island of St. Thomas. As the ship approached the harbor, the sight of lush hills and sparkling beaches took my breath away. I couldn’t resist a visit to Magens Bay, known for its powdery white sands and tranquil waters. The stunning view from the mountaintop also left an indelible mark on my memory.

Tortola: The following day, we arrived at Tortola, an island of captivating contrasts. The rugged landscapes blended seamlessly with the laid-back atmosphere. Exploring Cane Garden Bay allowed me to immerse myself in the island’s culture, as I sampled local cuisine and listened to the melodies of Caribbean music drifting through the air.

Great Stirrup Cay: Our final stop was the idyllic Great Stirrup Cay, a private island paradise exclusively for NCL guests. Stepping off the ship onto the soft sands, I felt like I had entered a dream world. Whether I was lounging by the water, enjoying water sports, or indulging in a beachside barbecue, the island offered the perfect blend of relaxation and adventure.

Throughout the cruise, the NCL Escape ship provided a luxurious home base. From the onboard entertainment to the array of dining options, every moment was filled with comfort and excitement. Whether I was watching a Broadway-style show, savoring gourmet cuisine, or relaxing by the pool, the ship’s amenities catered to my every desire.

As I reflect on this unforgettable journey, I’m reminded of the diverse beauty and culture that the Caribbean has to offer. From the vibrant ports of call to the incredible experiences on board the NCL Escape, this cruise allowed me to explore a world of breathtaking landscapes, vibrant traditions, and the perfect blend of relaxation and adventure.
