Norwegian Epic

October 2014 - Norwegian Epic to Europe - Western Mediterranean

Excellent ports-of-call

The Norwegian Epic is the third largest cruise ship at the time of this writing (November 2014),  The amenities on board are excellent and the staff is very friendly and always eager to help with a smile.  Food in the restaurants are very good and the quality of the buffet is about average.  The interior cabin, where we stayed, was small but stylish.  The major complaint about the cabin is that there is no proper washroom.  The sink and the shower are inside the bedroom area.  The toilet is in a "stall" with a sliding glass partition.  Far from being private.  However, the rest of the cabin very comfortable.  The itinerary is excellent with the ship departing from Barcelona followed by Naples, Rome, Florence, Cannes and Palma Mollorca.  We did not land in Florence on this trip because of the high winds which did not permit the tenders to dock on shore.  However, the rest of the ports-of-call and excursions were excellent.  I would recommend this itinerary to anyone wishing to visit the Western Mediterranean.  While the ship is relatively new and has  lot to offer, I would suggest not opting for an interior room assuming the outer cabins or suites have their own private bathrooms.

kencarch's Tips

Cannes, France - We went to Monaca and Monte Carlo but only drove through Cannes. Excellent Trip.
Barcelona, Spain - The city is amazing. We spent a day before and a day after the cruise exploring. Lots to see. Very metropolitan. Keep in mind the European lunch hour and dinner hours is different than North America. We were caught looking for a restaurant when we realized they were all closed and to reopen later.
Norwegian Epic Norwegian Epic - Don't go for the inner rooms. No private washrooms. Everything is out in the open. Toilet is behind sliding glass doors. Hard to find the elevators on the public floors. Ship is huge and is easy to get lost for the first few days. The casino is enormous compared to other ships.
