Norwegian Epic - first cruise experience

Sail Date: March 12, 2011

Reviewed: 5 years ago

Traveled As: Family w/older children

Room Type: Balcony

For a "first cruise experience" I have to say I chose a great ship - however, I am not certain that I would repeat the experience. Loved the newness of the ship, disliked travelling on a busy holiday week with "way too many passengers" on board. Fighting to get into buffet lines, people taking our tables, no room in some entertainment bookings, not being able to access entertainment options on NCL website.

Pros: newness of ship; excellent service; range of options for dining; excellent entertainment options; wonderful art auction

Cons: inability to book two rooms as party of three (one adult and two 17 year olds)

Did not like the port; too touristy. Five ships in port on same day; it was chaos on the island. Went to Orient Bay for beach time; crowded but lovely. Poor excursion quality booked with would not recommend

Loved the island, relaxed and more personal. Had a great excursion with sailing to see the turtles. Wonderful boat and crew. No hesitation in visiting island again.
Don't Miss: Snorkel and sail to see the turtles on the boat "Fury"
Nassau, Bahamas
Did not like this port, nor the time alloted or available excursions.
