Ship was good and new. Had no issues checking in. Now, shore excursions bookings with was a a disaster. We had an excursion to Pompaii and Amalfi Coast. Finding the bus tour was horrible. Once found, felt the need to keep checking I was in the right excursion. will never book an excursion if not directly with the ship.

Pros: new ship. many choices to eat

Recommends Norwegian Epic? Yes!

Food and Dining
would have liked a few more options in the restaurant.
Cabin / Stateroom
I never met the person who took care of my room.
Service and Staff
some restaurant staff was not too friendly
Ship Quality
Naples, Italy
Excursion with was a disaster. Tour guide was poor, restaurant was below any rating possible, but they did include an ant in the ice cream. Amalfi is nice
Don't Miss: Pompeii is impressive but would have been better with a better tour guide
Civitavecchia (Rome), Italy
a lot of walking and a lot of knowledge. Again, an excursion booked with NCL.
Don't Miss: trevi Fountain
Palma De Mallorca, Balearic Islands
absolutely amazing with the right tour guide we had. Again, booked with NCL
Don't Miss: Valdemossa
Livorno (Florence & Pisa), Italy
Visited Pisa and Tuscany for some wine tasting. great tour booked thru NCL
Don't Miss: Tuscany is beautiful
