Norwegian Epic

January 2017 - Norwegian Epic to Caribbean - Eastern


Totally enjoyed the cruise overall.  We loved the Broadway show, Priscilla Queen of the Desert. The food was good with plenty of choices.

Embarkation was slow, not sure if terminal is equipped for 4,000 passenger ship. Inside cabin was small and dark, couldn't see to shave.  Tendering in at Stirrup Cay was horrible.  There were only 3 tender boats running for a ship that holds 4,000 passengers.  It took us three and a half hours to get ashore.

Norwegian Star

November 2015 - Norwegian Star to Caribbean - Western


Overall a great cruise, good food, good ports and good entertainment.

The negatives:

The kids were out of control in the pool area, diving from the bandstand into the pool on top of people, kids using "adult only" hot tubs as there own personal swimming pool, babies in hot tubs in diapers (deck patrol doesn't exist on this ship per hotel manager).

Many rude bartenders, I'm guessing because they lost tips due to new "no receipt policy" no place add a tip to your receipt because you don't get one.

No interactive TV in your cabin, no checking your account, no movies, no booking excursions.  They want you to use their phone APP.

I've been on over 30 cruises and the management on this one was well below standard.  I'm going back to Royal Caribbean.
