Review of Norwegian Escape deck 6 (Lobby-Dining)
Escape Theater (level 1 of 2; capacity 800 seats) is the ship’s main show room for grand-style music and show productions. The theater is served by its own bar (located on deck 7). The evening show programming has Broadway-style shows and musicals, like the “Million Dollar Quartet” (rock n’roll best songs from pop-icons of the 60’s, like E.Presley, J.Cash, C.Perkins) and “After Midnight” (traditional jazz / big-band songs from the 20s-30’s). The NCL Escape’s signature theater show is the musical “For the Record – The Brat Pack”. This production is complimentary and based on John Hughes movies.
The Supper Club is a new venue for an exclusive to the ship “dinner & show” dining concept. The themed evening show program features soundtracks of classic John Hughes movies (music of the 80’s). The Supper Club is at surcharge pp – $25 banquet seating, $30 floor seating.
