The food was pretty good. The cruise ship staff was excellent. Did not like configuration of the room, especially shower and toilet. Ship very large and sometimes hard to find where you wanted to go.

Too Many People

The Norwegian Epic is too big and the layout of the rooms is difficult to function in.  We had the specialty dining package and couldn't get into any of the specialty restaurants.  We couldn't use the specialty dollars in the main dining room on items that were an upcharge.  There was little to no outdoor space in the shade to relax.  Not a great cruise at all.

Great cruise

The Norwegian Epic is a very large, beautiful ship with plenty of activities to do on board for everyone.  The staff were extremely friendly and helpful.  Our room steward was the best.  The food at the included dining venues and the specialty dining was excellent and the service at each one impeccable.  The only one I would not give but a fair was the Spiegel Tent dinner and show.  The premium seats are horrible so if you go don't pay for premium.  The regular seating looked much more comfortable.  The only thing we paid extra for that I would not repeat if I did it again.  The entertainment on board was top notch.  We really don't do excursions, but I would highly recommend taking in the view at Paradise Point on St. Thomas.  It was amazing!!!

the cruise was fun,loved the circus of dreams,and the burn the floor.liked the waterslides and drinks were great. the food was ok ,definately not any better than any other cruise line. and anything else on the ship you paid out the nose for,kind of ridiculous! and after 11 p.m. the ship was DEAD! or of course you could always donate more money at the all night casino,or play a game with lame prizes and stand in line to try and i say try and redeem your prizes. I,m not going to say i didn,t have fun but no more norweigian for my family (35) of us went on this cruise!

Magical Cruise

Favorite part was freestyle concept. Gave us flexibility to enjoy the ship at our own pace. Also loved the beverage and specialty dining that was included in the fare. NCL needs to improve their boarding process (one long line versus multiple lines). Would recommend the Epic as ur has a great layout and lots o amenities. I also loved the design of the stateroom.

If you like long boat rides, this should be it for you, in addition to the other amenities found on board.

While there were many activities there was ample time for quiet reading or sight seeing.  First cruise loved  it will go again.  Have already recommended it to family and friends.  Hated to leave.

My First Cruise

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

My favorite part of the cruise besides the buffet was the shows specially the dance one, then the others.

I didn't like to be at sea for three days.

I recommend the improvement of the balcony stateroom; rug, curtain, drapes and smell.

The ship was fabulous!!!  There was so much to do.   The food and entertainment was excellent.  My favorite island was Tortola.  Don't forget to purchase the rum from Cane distillery.   Great shopping at St. Thomas.   Fun and relaxing in Stirrup cay.  The snorkeling is excellent.

what to know about your view.

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

The cruise line is good, meals were good, on board dinning's, were good, but understand when you book an balcony view you are not on the 8th or 9th floor. The life boats block you view to the water. On the 8th floor your balcony does not have a roof, everyone above you is looking down, no privacy. The staff was good.

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.
