Norwegian Epic

December 2017 - Norwegian Epic to Caribbean - Western

Loved the big boat!!

Wonderful boat. We didn't get to go where we paid to go. Hurricanes mess up the islands. We still liked the ship but not our destinations so much. No compensation or credits to us for not getting to go on the original itinerary. Would have cancelled the trip and took one later on if we could have, paying the difference or letting you keep the difference if it was less. Made the offer to you but you turned it down. So much for customer service. But as far as the ship it was wonderful. The best we've been on.

Norwegian Dawn

November 2016 - Norwegian Dawn to Caribbean - Western

Nice referb to a great ship

The ship has been in referb since our last cruise in Dec 2015. The upgrades were wonderful. Light and open feeling in all the public area.  Food was better than before, we really enjoyed the prime rib, fish and desserts. A little to much European flavor for me but there was always plenty of good food anyway. Getting on and off the ship was a breeze, no delays at all. The staff was wonderful and always available, especially the Hotel Manager and Cruise Director.  Entertainment was top shelf and plenty of variety.LoveHappy

Carnival Elation

August 2014 - Carnival Elation to Caribbean - Western

Our First Cruise but Not Our Last....

We had a wonderful time!  From the time we showed up at the port until we departed the boat.  The checkin was so easy and everyone we meet were truly nice.  The food was great, in both variety and flavor.  We had a grand time doing the "fine dining".  The buffet was wonderful for all three meals and snacks between meals.  

Our room was very comfortable and adequately furnished.  I was leery of being on The Riveria Deck but the elevators were punctual and easy to get to.    

We had a ball cruising down the Mississippi River, so peaceful!!!  

Mexico was great but you could take Progreso off the destinations that you go to.  To much like a 3rd world country for my taste.  I have been to over 96 countries/territories so I am not a stranger to foreign lands.  Cancun would be a better destination.

We will be going again on this cruise if the price and the time lines up for us.

The only downside was that the lady making sandwiches on the Lido Buffet is way overworked.  She is there way to long with no help and it takes a long time (during busy hours and late night) to get your food. She is bustin her hump and the line gets longer...

rabyjames's Tips

George Town, Grand Cayman - We have always had a great time in George Town. Great people and pretty beaches. We went to the Palms Resort and had a ball. Easy van ride an the price was right.
Falmouth, Jamaica - No excursion. Why did we go there? The country in a very dangerous place. The people are "to friendly". I have been in 106 countries/territories. Jamaica is way down on my list of places to see. We stayed in the port area and on the ship. Jimmy Buffets place had free wi fi and that's were all the crew guy/gals go.
Norwegian Epic Norwegian Epic - It is big really big. Be prepared to walk a lot. Ship lays out very well and there is deck chairs everywhere until the guys start stacking them up at about 3 pm. Lots of clean bath rooms all over the ship. Public areas are in the lower part of the ship and rooms are in the middle. Thank you.
Port Canaveral, Florida - Port Canaveral is our favorite port. Plenty of room and so well organized. Parking is easy and the shuttles are plentiful .
Nassau, Bahamas - Nassau is Nassau. Have seen it 5 times and it is still the same. We used the Hilton's beach and resort all day, the day we were there. To many vendors yelling and to much noise around the port area. No excursion.
Great Stirrup Cay (Cruiseline Private Island), Bahamas - WOW. What can we say but it was WONDERFUL. Easy shuttle to and from the beach. Clean and comfy place to be for a day. Food was good too. Plenty of drink places. Thank you Norwegian for letting use our drink card on the beach! Ron Rico Rum was great. The water was perfect too.
Norwegian Dawn Norwegian Dawn - For us this is the PERFECT size ship. Love the 7th deck for walking and site seeing. Take in all the entertainment, a great experience for everyone. First class crew and staff. Will go on the Dawn again, hopefully soon.
Carnival Elation Carnival Elation - If you are not eating in the dining room you are missing a great treat. The buffet is great but the fine dining is just a few steps above wonderful. The molten chocolate cake is to die for!! Loved the brisket and lobster!!! Wife loved the flat iron steak!!!
