7 Night Western Mediterranean (Barcelona Roundtrip)
Sail Date: May 29, 2011
Ship: Norwegian Epic
Cabin Type: Balcony
Traveled As: Couple
Reviewed: 6 years ago

Overall, it was a wonderful experience. I would only suggest that because of the shere number of people on board--nearly 4,000--there were times when it was impossible to find a deck chair in the sun. The numbers also made the excursion process cumbersome. Also, regarding the excursions, the excursion coordinator (he provided an overview of all excursions early in the week) was seemingly uninformed and inarticulate. Although he may have know a great deal about the excursions he was unable to talk about them in a professional manner--poor public speaking skills and depth of understanding.
The dining experiences were fantastic, the entertainment great, and the quality of service superb.

The Fifth Wheel Marionettes should have been in another venue. Couldn't see the performance

Pros: great ship, great service, incredible food (free-style is the only way to go), and fantastic entertainment

Cons: too many people on board, pools too few and too small, excursions were very crowded and time-consuming
