August 2014 - Norwegian Epic to Europe - Western Mediterranean
Rate the boat a 4/5
Good itinerary. Would recommend taking it out of Rome instead if you can (you can board this cruise in Rome or Barcelona). The reason is that Rome is a 3-4 hour round trip from the boat and Barcelona is a port city. If you board in Rome then Barcelona is an excursion without the 3-4 hour trip. Drinks less expensive than Royal Caribbean and Carnival. Food was way better than RC and Carnival. Specialty restaurants excellent. Recommend Cagney's for Steak and the hibachi restaurant. Regret we didn't try the Ice Bar. Heard it was "cool". We are sworn off of Carnival and will have to think hard about RC after this experience.
