Norwegian Epic

April 2015 - Norwegian Epic to Transatlantic

Average - ship somewhat rundown

Although the Staterooms are well laid out, they do show A LOT OF wear and tear on a four year old ship -- sitting on the balcony one sees a lot of rust. If you are used to walk around the ship making a circle -- that is impossible on the Epic -- as a walker you get run over by the joggers because the jogging deck only goes a half circle. In the garden Cafe the servers and cooks are not well organized -- by the pizza station you have at times five cooks but if you ask for something they send you from one to an other-- At imes they have people cleaning the tables they almost grab the plates out of your hand at other times they is hardly anyone.Entertainment was weak and not denough for us elderly.

Norwegian Epic

January 2015 - Norwegian Epic to Caribbean - Western

Epic review

The cruise itself was good -- however the ship itself being 4 years old appears  rundown. Our cabin door was stuck, the hairdryer holder was broken, the carpet needed cleaning, The mirrors were dirty, the wood work hat pieces missing and dirty.  All in all the cleanliness left a lot to be desired it is no wonder that the cruise lines are experiencing illnesses. When I compare the NCL Star to the Epic, there is no comparison -- The star is an excellent absolute clean ship.  The Epic staff does not seem to be well motivated or led to do their tasks.  To me it appeared to many crew members standing around around doing nothing. The door leading to the balcony not only was stuck but also had rust on the bottom.
