7 Night Western Mediterranean (Barcelona Roundtrip)
Sail Date: June 12, 2011
Ship: Norwegian Epic
Cabin Type: Inside
Traveled As: Singles/Friends
Reviewed: 6 years ago

NCL has freestyle cruising down nicely, but constant up selling and pushing very expensive drinks, spa services, tous, etc, got old very fast. I am not the only one that noticed, everyone was unhappy with this aggressive policy. On board, I spent nearly 3x more $$$, than I did on similar Med cruise a year ago.

Suites for 1 person small, cut nice.

Pros: Nice ship, clean, decent service

Cons: Constant sales pitch on everything extra, drinks, food, excursions, services. Really a turn-off. Food, just average.

Recommends Norwegian Epic? Yes!
