Good Med Cruise by ramoncastro

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

For someone that has cruised this same ship 3 times the entertainment hasn't changed, but rather it gets poorer. The first time there was an improv everynight and now there is not. The restaurant (can't remember the name) next to the bowling alley has terrible service and no one cares. The cabin has problems: the toilet would not flush and the shower would not drain. Other than that the cruise was very good. We happened to be on at the time of the world cup and it was pleasent to watch it, and the food there was good.

Just OK... by rumbler101

We had heard a great deal about Norwegian and were excited to give them a try. As I said in the title, it was just fine, Nothing exceeded expectations. Food, service, layout, etc were all just fine.

Over all, we would give this cruise 4 1/2 stars. It wasn't perfection, but it was better than a lot of our past cruises.

Epic - good itinerary on the Mediterranean by natho17

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Family (older children)

The Garden Café buffet was outstanding, a big highlight. It's a very clean café/buffet place, the food was delicious, the ice cream machine was empty only once (compared to most days on other companies...), the dining room was fantastic too (Manhattan Club). We did not try the fancy $$ eateries. - NCL application doesn't work onboard epic - A/C in unit 8149 not functioning correctly took 4 attempts to get maintenance to replace a broken actuator (day 6!!) which caused the problem, it went from being an oven to a freezer with no middle ground. That put a BIG DAMPER on the enjoyment of our stay... esp. when you do want to spend time in cabin b/c that's where you can find quiet... - one pool area not enough for 4100 passengers - poor access to even / odd rooms (not enough cross passage access) which requires long walks to get to the correct side. - walking / running track is limited compared to many other ships, this one is on lower deck which loops on port side or starboard side (doesn't go around whole ship as is normally the case), the kitchen exhaust side was very unpleasant to walk on! - balcony stateroom was small and cramped and bed length is short even for a person of height 5' 10". - balcony area was quite rusty showing the need for maintenance / painting

Mediterránean cruise from Rome by ajsmom4407

/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Large Group

Norwegian Epic - The cruise ship was massive .. the first part of our cruise was great .. not many people we didn’t have to wait or fight for pool chairs and the boys got on the water slide and would run and get right back on them again .. no wait .. but in Barcelona a whole new cruise began and everything was reset. Pictures on our account, etc.. we noticed they had a celebration pool side to commemorate the beginning of the cruise .. for those clients (we did not have that). At Barcelona they picked up more people and then the ship was full.. at capacity. A couple people in our group of 25 people were ignored at the pool bar. They served everyone around them even people that walked up after them. This was extremely upsetting. .. we were grateful that we only had to endure that for 2 days (our cruise was almost over) .. Pros to the cruise ship ... tons of entertainment!!! Always something going on!!! lots of bars with live nightly entertainment, lots of places to eat included in the package in addition to the gourmet Restaurants that were extra. They had an over 21 area with bars and tables alone with a pool and pool lounge chairs and large screen (like the one where we watched movies on celebrity) .. they watched the World Cup games there during the Day and movies at night .. They had casino table games and slots and had games (boxes) going for the World Cup games. They had bingo games where you could win $2,000 or a 7 day cruise. Lots for the kids to do by the pool and the kids club was amazing .. the kids did not want to be picked up. They had a game room with tables and board games which our kids enjoyed too. And of course the WiFi cafe with book cases with books to borrow to read during the cruise. The cruise staff were great... minus the bartenders at the oool bar after Barcelona Cons - Food was okay .. not bad but not celebrity food. WiFi that was included was only 250 minutes not unlimited WiFi .. it was horrible .. had to pay for the better WiFi and one day it was totally down. Not like celebrity. We booked a balcony because I these cabins are usually more comfort. Not the case on this shop. The cabins were small for the number of people .. really tight. We had a beverage package but couldn’t get a bottle water or soda. We would get cups .. if we wanted bottled water we had to buy it. We did have water on the juice bar so we refilled our water bottles there.

the ship itinery was excellent . it would show who and what going on. my suggestion for first timers is to bring your luggage aboard with them so they can change and be comfortable and not wait till 6pm for the luggage to arrive by staff, theyre to many passenger to expect luggage to be in room.

We wish the ship would have allowed us to buy pictures at a later date online. They are very expensive and most of the time at the end of the ship you have spent all your money. We know we would have bought online at a later time if we had the opportunity to do so.

Explore the many venues for sunbathing to find your favourites, then go there early to get it. Book your shows before you sail, and use the box office to get into shows that you cannot book on-line. As soon as the shows in the comedy club has started you can sneak in and see it even if it's sold out
