Norwegian Epic

December 2015 - Norwegian Epic to Europe - Western Europe

EPICly too Big

This ship has 4400 passengers, 1700 crew, is 19 stories and a theater that seats only 800.  That explains a lot.  They have crammed every space to put more people on board and the theaters, to bars, to dining rooms can't handle the capacity with the grace and excellence expected on a cruise.  It is TOO big and the rooms inconveniently have glass showers and toilet areas with little privacy other than a curtain rather than a bathroom enclosed area.  No bank of center elevators cause walking up to 15 to eat or down to 5/6 for dinner shop etc. a bit tough on the legs for stairs with many older passengers who needed the limited elevators.  Staff is great but the flaw lies in the design trying to put too many passengers on a big beautiful ship that the venues can't accommodate. Although have taken NCL before and may again, I will NOT ever take a ship with this design.

bstars's Tips

Tangier, Morocco - Don't go into town early. Was creepy and you felt followed (almost insecure) as there were too few people around. Bring a map of town. It is confusing.
Norwegian Epic Norwegian Epic - If you want to see a show or eat in fine dining book early. Best time to eat is early. Choose a smaller ship
