Norwegian Epic

March 2017 - Norwegian Epic to Caribbean - Western

Large ship small cabin

They did a good job getting people spread around the ship, I mean you still have a hard time getting a seat at prime times but overall very good.  The food was better than expected, just returned last summer on a different ncl cruiseand it was less than desired.  Really wish they would have a sandwich bar.  The cabins are by far small and very poor layout.  I know u dont spend much time in your cabins, however my two teens and mother shared a cabin and if you are use to the two twin beds  and a couch or pull down bed that is not happening.  The two beds that make a queen bed (on most cruises) only separate 4 inches at the max.  On other cruises you can usually have walking room between them like a foot or so.  The 3rd person couch was designed odd. It has a curve maybe for looks, but it takes some room out to sleep on.  You will have NO privacy when taking a shower or bathroom. All that protects you is a frosted glass door.  Their is no inside clubs the club on this ship is outside.  You can do the lounge but it is smaller and always had a theme until 11 p.m. some nights longer it seemed.  One thing to do is book every show even comedy on your t.v. first thing when you get on the ship or you will have a hard time seeing shows.  You will have a good time its your vacation you make it how you want I just am use to bigger space in my cabins but I know next time I will have to book a solo cabin for mom.  They are new and look very cool.

Norwegian Getaway

August 2014 - Norwegian Getaway to Caribbean - Eastern

Not for people who want to feel like they are more that just a number.

In my past experience with cruises the staff go above and beyond learn your name know your likes and most of all treat you like you are supposed to be treated. You have to sign up to watch shows like comedy and dance. We didn't know this until day 2 and some shows had no seats already. They say they have over 8 restaurants that are complementary, however 4 of them serve the same thing. They only had one pool for the whole ship basically impossible to ever actually swim in. We tried to use the phone system and they said that we didn't actually have our room until day 4 the phone couldn't go through to call other phones. The ship advertising ice bar and lots of dining options. The ice bar cost to just go into and the restaurants were nothing special. When at port we would come back before the crowd but that ment you would not get water, or any goodies they didn't give it out until the time was 2 hrs befor leaving. The one thing they have is rope course, rock wall, and 4 slides. Putt putt is not easy to play only have 4 of each club and 8 golf balls so u will be waiting.
