Great ship

Sail Date: August 28, 2011

Reviewed: 5 years ago

Room Type: Suite

We thoroughly enjoyed the cruise. We loved all the storage space in the room. The staff were very friendly and accommodating and we appreciated having the shuttle buses available from the port to Florence and Rome. The ship is very nicely decorated. The swimming pools are small and overrun with children.

Pros: Staff very polite and accommodating

Cons: Children in the dining room after 8<:00 pm

Recommends Norwegian Epic? Yes!

The entertainment was excellent
Ship Quality
The ship was beautiful
Food and Dining
The food was spectacular
Cabin / Stateroom
The layout of the toilet and the shower was a bit different but the shower was very roomy. The worst of it was the sink in the bedroom area. Sometimes one needs privacy brushing ones teeth especially if you have a plate!
Service and Staff
The staff were very polite and accommodating
Civitavecchia (Rome), Italy
We went to Vatican City. It was well worth it. The shuttle service from this port was also great
Don't Miss: Vatican City
Palma De Mallorca, Balearic Islands
The Tourist Information office needs better signs
Livorno (Florence & Pisa), Italy
Great service from the port to Florence without having to book an excursion through the ship
Don't Miss: The bridge over the River Arno
Naples, Italy
We arranged a private tour in Capri with Capritime. Four of us had a private tour on a gozzo boat around the island with a picnic lunch, wine and 4 opportunities to swim off the boat. <it was a fantastic day.
Don't Miss: Capritime Boat Tour can be booked on the <internet
