7 Night Western Mediterranean (Barcelona Roundtrip)
Sail Date: July 03, 2011
Ship: Norwegian Epic
Cabin Type: Balcony
Traveled As: Family (older children)

Overall loved the cruise. Biggest downside was the room was very narrow and the layout was awkward. I think the pool area was great for people traveling with children or young teens. Wish there would have been more older teens on our cruise. I loved that there were no set seating times for dinner. Would have liked to have tried more of the specialty restaurants, however, all the 'extras' really add up fast making this itinerary very expensive!! Entertainment was excellent!!

Cabin / Stateroom

Staterooms were very narrow. Not a lot of privacy in the bathroom/shower area.

Went into Palma, didn't feel up to another tour.

Went down the Amalfi Coast to Positano and Sorrento. Came back to Pompei. Beautiful area! Again, lots of driving... an additional hour at port would have helped!

We did a private car to Rome. Much too much to do in one day. An additional hour in port would have helped tremendously with planning tours in Rome, keeping in mind that the port is more than an hour from the city.

We chose to go to Cinque Terre and Pisa.

Pros: Freestyle Dining

Cons: Staterooms were too narrow; not enough privacy

Recommends Norwegian Epic? Yes!
