October 2014 - Norwegian Epic to Europe - Western Mediterranean
This was our first cruise. I went with my wife and her family. The port calls were good. We did a couple through NCL and a couple on our own. I wish the ship had a larger pool; one you could swim a lap in. I enjoyed the freestyle dining and the entertainment. My biggest gripe might be small - the elevators were slow. Many people waited for five minutes, while most just used the stairs. We had a mid-ship interior room. The stateroom was nice. I expected more than frosted glass for the bathroom. Frosted glass for the shower was fine however.
All in all, it was a great first cruise, but my wife's family are veteran cruisers and expected the perks that goes with that. This didn't dissuade us from enjoying ourselves.
