Norwegian Epic

October 2016 - Norwegian Epic to Transatlantic


My wife an I enjoyed the relaxing atmosphere and the time at sea.  We found that the rooms are poorly configured (there is no "bathroom") and they were too small for the price category. Some beverage products were not available at the ship's bars, only in the specialty dining facilities.  Cagney's was a great disappointment.  Free entertainment was sub-standard.  The practice of up-charging for certain menu items in general dining should be discontinued.  If you must pay for food in general dining, that information should be prominently advertised so that people are aware in advance.  Charging a fee for room service is unacceptable.

Norwegian Breakaway

September 2015 - Norwegian Breakaway to Bermuda

Very Relaxing - no worries!

This was a very relaxing cruise start to finish.  Well organized embarkation in New York.  Several days at sea and then almost 3 days in Bermuda.  Bermuda is a very friendly and beautiful place.  Great beaches (Horseshoe Bay and Church Bay).  St. George and Hamilton were great to visit.  Very efficient and easy to use buses and ferries around the island.  Many activities aboard the ship if you want to participate or you can just relax.  Overall a very good experience.

February 2015 - Zuiderdam to Caribbean

Nice cruise to relax

This was a nice relaxing cruise.  Most of the time is at sea.  Only two hours in Colon, Panama.  Unless you take excursions offered by the cruise line, the two hours in Colon is all the time you will get in Panama out of eleven days.  The ship was nice except that there were a lot of problems with toilets, including ours.  The Pinnacle dining experience was not worth the money.  We were disappointed with Aruba but maybe our expectations were too high.  If you want time to relax, take this cruise; if you want to see Panama, find another way.

Norwegian Spirit

February 2014 - Norwegian Spirit to Europe - Western Europe

Our best cruise so far

We took this cruise to celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary.  We were not disappointed.  We had the Gemini Suite.  The cruise staff was attentive and responsive to our every request.  The "freestyle" dining took some getting used to, but all in all we enjoyed the experience.  The ship was in better condition than some reviews suggest, but if you are looking for a sparkling brand new mega cruise ship, this is not the cruise for you.  We enjoyed the relaxed no stress atmosphere which was exactly what we were looking for.  The specialty resturants - Cagneys and Le Bistro - were great.  We have told trhe cruise line that Cassablanca was not worth the stop and another port should be used.  We were not impressed with this port.  The other ports were enjoyable.  If you are looking for a quiet, relaxing and stress free cruise, this is a good one.  If you are looking for a go go style carribean cruise, by all means go to the carribean.
