Review SummaryCruising on the Norwegian Epic to visit Europe was an outstanding experience. The cruise staff was diligent in providing detailed information about things to do at each country as well as port arrival and departure times. The cruise offered bus services to the train station which allowed for access into the city of destination. If touring a with an official tour group and for some reason the group has a late return due to a problem the cruise ship can be notified of the emergency.
The ship is freestyle cruising which takes adjusting, because you are obligated to arrange dinner times, show times etc. Shows often filled quickly, I recommend booking prior to cruising or immediately upon boarding the ship. The Manhattan Dining room often had a line for dinner, and a wait as long as 20 minutes. I really enjoyed the Blue Man group, but other entertainment could be better. I have cruised with Capitol Jazz and spoiled by the outstanding level of entertainment offered. After ending a cruise with Capitol Jazz, I left having enjoyed the Ports toured as well as the outstanding entertainment. Some evening party events were scheduled for the H2O which is on the upper deck outside, so if cold or rainy there was no other accommodation.
