Food Republic Review

We sailed the Norwegian Escape a while ago because A) we are cruise lovers who found a great off season deal and B) it was the newest ship on the market at the time and we wanted to experience all the bells and whistles for ourselves.  This cruise was a girls cruise (my best buddy and my two daughters sailed with me) and fortunately we are all foodies!  We had Food Republic high on our list of places we wanted to eat during our cruise on the Escape.  Food Republic was all over the NCL website and promotional videos we’d seen.  It was also featured in a lot of Youtube videos by other cruisers.  This was clearly the place to eat if you were headed onto the Escape and we wanted to see for ourselves.  Well, the restaurant totally lived up to the hype.
