Norwegian Epic

October 2014 - Norwegian Epic to Europe - Western Mediterranean

October is a great month for Mediterranean cruise

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.

Palma De Mallorca, Balearic Islands - Took a scenic bus tour. The island is beautiful! We had some time to wander a town then took the train back through 13 tunnels. Our feet needed a break by then.
Barcelona, Spain - Close to port so fast to get into town. Hop on hop off bus is helpful. There are two routes. The one that includes Gaudi's a Familia Sagrada is the more important route.we loved the Catalon dancing in front of the Cathedral at noon Sunday and anything Gaudi did.
Cannes, France - Took the local bus tour and then wandered in the sailboat area. Had a great lunch at an outdoor cafe and returned to the ship. Tenders worked very efficiently.
Norwegian Epic Norwegian Epic - We did travel with carryon only so coming and going was easy. The only downside was limited space for gifts.
