Norwegian Epic

April 2017 - 7 Night Western Mediterranean (Barcelona Roundtrip) Cruise on Norwegian Epic

Excursion "Chinese Fire Drill"

Itinerary was excellent but the handling of excursions was poor to awful most of the time.  It was especially crazy on a tender day with rough seas.  The staff handling the excursions had no control of the large crowd waiting for at least an hour for their tours.  it would help if they would take advantage of technology and use their video boards to show status of the tours instead of trying to sell bottles of water!!

 

Food in the specialty restaurants was overall very good and major entertainment was excellent.  Unfortunately, the balcony cabins are tiny and poorly designed.

Norwegian Epic

April 2017 - 9 Night Canary Islands & Morocco (Barcelona Roundtrip) Cruise on Norwegian Epic

Tiny cabins/not Epic

Smallest balcony cabins on the ocean.  NCL Epic is just a giant floating hotel with very little going for it. The public floor layout sucks- you either have to go thru a casino that stretches half the ship or go thru all the shops to get from one end of the ship to the other.  Everything on this ship is designed to get you to spend more money.  They are always trying to sell you something.  Food was OK- specialty rest. Were best option. 

 

Staff were here friendly but restaurants were understaffed which hurt service level. Entertainment was top notch!  Burn the Floor, Cirque, & Priscilla were all excellent.

 

would not sail on Epic again!

Norwegian Epic

April 2017 - 13 Night Transatlantic Eastbound (Port Canaveral To Barcelona) Cruise on Norwegian Epic

Smooth Sailing

Best spot on the ship was the Spice H2O deck at the rear of the ship.  No children allowed and not a windy as the main pool area.  Also, very quiet!

 

The ocean was like a lake and the sun was shining all the way across the Atlantic..
