NCL Escape - Day 5 (Tortola, GB Virgin Islands)

NCL Escape - Day 5
(Tortola, GB Virgin Islands)

As we pulled into Tortola, the weather was absolutely gorgeous!  I don’t care what people say as there is no way to get a view like this from staying on the island. It can only be seen from a cruise ship.  Since there is not much to do in Tortola besides taking a tour and having to be back on the ship by 2:30PM, we decided to do our own exploring.  

Again, since I have been here before, there is a little market about a 10 minute walk away from the ship on the outskirts of town.  So, we decided to check it out and do a little video for Maraloha Travel.  Don’t worry… that is coming soon as well!

After doing a little shopping at the market, we decided to head back to the ship.  We decided to go to the Garden Café to get some food and then plan our evening.  As we entered our cabin, another gift was left for us.  What a treat! 

Next, we got ready to go see Mark Klein, the comedian in the Escape Theater. Mark Klein began his career as a stand-up comedian in comedy clubs from Alaska to Florida, headlining across the country, and has been on National & Regional Media from CBS, A&E, Showtime, Comedy Central, Comcast, The Bob & Tom Show, and Forbes magazine. He has expanded his schedule to include cruise ship entertainment and just happened to be on the NCL Escape.  The show was great and he was really funny.  We were able to talk to him after the show and realized that he has also been at Sidesplitters Comedy Club in Tampa, only a 10 minute ride from our house and knew the owner!  What a small world!  So hopefully the next time he is in town, we will be able to see him.

After the show, we decided to go to the casino to try our luck and ran into Isabelle and Brent!  What a great couple!  They were still boasting about their cabin and how much fun they were having. 
We also decided to explore the ship a little more and found a great Christmas display near Le Bistro.  All handmade by the chef with lights and music. 

A very brief day with not much excitement but well work the needed rest.

Please feel free to comment as I would love to hear from you.  Tune in for day six of our cruise on Norwegian's newest ship the Escape!
