October 2014 - Norwegian Epic to Europe - Western Mediterranean
My husband and I loved our cruise on the Epic. The food was excellent, and with three sides of glass in the Garden room (buffet style) we hated to go elsewhere to eat, though we did enjoy a few meals in dining rooms. We loved having a balcony, both while in port but also if I would wake up during the night I had somewhere beautiful yet private to read or watch the moon over the waves for a while. Entertainment favorites were Blue Man Group, Cirque, and Graffiti. Tours were excellent though tiring, but there was so much to see. After several days of architecture, ancient sites, and statues, we enjoyed a scenic tour of Majorca. (Our feet appreciated that break also.). Temps in October were low to mid 70s. Perfect for being outside. We started in Barcelona and had 5 days there first. The subway system is fantastic and we could stay in a hotel in a non touristy area but one block away was the very efficient subway to everything we wanted to visit. We fell in love with their balconied buildings and anything Gaudi built.
