7 Night Western Mediterranean (Barcelona Roundtrip)
Sail Date: September 23, 2012
Ship: Norwegian Epic
Cabin Type: Inside
Traveled As: Couple
Reviewed: 5 years ago

The ship is nice enough and very clean, however, I'm not accustomed to pay for all the \"shows\" and entertainment on the ship. The Blue Man Group was the only free entertainment that I am aware of, everything else to see was extra. The freestyle dining was a nightmare. I felt like a herd of cattle in the mornings trying to get breakfast before our excursions. Dinnertime was the same way unless you went at really odd hours to avoid the mass of people. The food was typical \"buffett\" food. After a few days, it all seemed to taste the same no matter what you ate. I tried the grilled salmon about 4 different times but was only able to eat it once seeing as the other 3 times it was totally raw in the middle. By far the worst food I've ever had on a cruise.
