Great cruise overall!

Sail Date: July 03, 2011

Reviewed: 5 years ago

Traveled As: Family (older children)

Room Type: Balcony

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!!

Pros: Freestyle Dining

Cons: Staterooms were too narrow; not enough privacy

Recommends Norwegian Epic? Yes!

Ship Quality
Food and Dining
Disappointed with deserts!
Service and Staff
Cabin / Stateroom
Staterooms were very narrow. Not a lot of privacy in the bathroom/shower area.
Enjoyed all entertainment!
Palma De Mallorca, Balearic Islands
Went into Palma, didn't feel up to another tour.
Civitavecchia (Rome), Italy
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.
Naples, Italy
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!
Livorno (Florence & Pisa), Italy
We chose to go to Cinque Terre and Pisa.
