Super Cruise

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Norwegian Epic | Sail Date:

Very nice cruise aboard the Epic.  Ship is in good shape and presents very clean and well kept.  Meals both in the Buffet, general dining areas and in particular the Specialty dining were very good.  Excellent choices for menu and well presented.  We enjoyed the shore excursions and utilized one in every port.  This is our second cruise aboard a Norwegian ship and will do so again.

Good and bad

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Norwegian Epic | Sail Date:

The cruis was very well organized as far as embarkation and disembarkation. 

 

The service on this cruise was much slower than on other lines. Freestyle dining was great but I'm not sure if that's why the service wasn't great. The specialty restaurants were very good.

 

The alcohol was crazy expensive. For a glass of wine from a low shelf brand (that would cost 12 for a whole bottle) was like $12 per glass!!! Insane.

 

Found ourselves board on at sea days.

 

Ports and ship were beautiful. Ship was very clean and well kept. Not sure I would ever cruise with Norwegian again. It was "okay" but found other lines to be more what I am looking for.

We love free style cruising

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Norwegian Epic | Sail Date:

We cruised on the Norwegian Epic for 10 days with another couple.  We loved every minute of it, especially since we could do what we wanted to do when we wanted to do it.  The staff was outstanding and did everything possible for us to have an enjoyable experience.  We appreciate Catherine standing at the entrance of the buffet area ready to spray everyone's hands in order to keep germs away.  She did this every day with a great attitude.  The entertainment was excellent and the usage of the spa was definitely a plus.  We have already recommended this cruise to family members.Big Smile

Epic food & shows, but NOT so Epic staterooms

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Norwegian Epic | Sail Date:

For my 54th cruise, I was terribly disappointed by the staterooms; we always pay extra for an AFT facing balcony--usually a bit larger with view to the R & to the L.  This was by far the smallest room of the 54 cruises, limited storage because there was a connecting door to the next cabin, had to bring hangers from home to hold clothes (few shelves for folded clothes), space between bed & dressing table was no more than 18", bathroom was a joke (toilet in frosted glass tiny enclosure; shower in another frosted glass enclosure.

Food was much better than on the Sun 3-4 months ago; shows were great but you needed reservations to attend.  There should have been a warning as to what "Priscilla of the Dessert" was about; my husband and many others over 65 walked OUT.

Great Cruise

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Norwegian Epic | Sail Date:

The cruise was worth every cent. We stayed in the Haven and had a wonderful time. Food was good, ports were interesting - it could not have been better.

 

The only thing I would do different is that I would book directly with the cruise line. The AA.Cruise person that I booked with told me that I would get several amenities. I got them all except a $25 credit. Prior to my cruise, I had two occasions to call this person. I left a voice mail each time. He never returned my calls. I spent $9000 and he NEVER returned my calls!! I had to call and ask for another rep. One call was to pay for the balance of my cruise (since I no longer had the credit card that they had on file). My second call was to go over the amenities. I have already booked another cruise, but this time I booked with the cruise line. The customer service people at NCL are much more responsive.

Badly Designed Ship and Poor Food

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Norwegian Epic | Sail Date:

The ship is designed so that all the action is reduced to 3 floors.  During sea days these floors become quickly packed with people and found the areas to be crowded and tightly closed.  The service at most places was terrible.  The food in the main dinning areas was poor and forget about eating at the buffet. The food in the buffet areas was the worst.  Food in the specialty restaurant was good and would recommend purchasing a specialty restaurant package over the drink package.

Popular tips for Norwegian Epic.


the ship itinery was excellent . it would show who and what going on. my suggestion for first timers is to bring your luggage aboard with them so they can change and be comfortable and not wait till 6pm for the luggage to arrive by staff, theyre to many passenger to expect luggage to be in room.

We wish the ship would have allowed us to buy pictures at a later date online. They are very expensive and most of the time at the end of the ship you have spent all your money. We know we would have bought online at a later time if we had the opportunity to do so.

Get a room near the front, the forward elevator goes right into the buffet, and don't miss the free liquor tasting each night at 8, they give out increasingly better scotch in the liquor shop each night.
