7 Night Western Mediterranean (Rome Roundtrip)
Sail Date: September 11, 2013
Ship: Norwegian Epic
Cabin Type: Inside
Cabin Number: 12201
Traveled As: Couple
Reviewed: 4 years ago

Entertainment was repeated. Food was satisfactory, not exceptional - menu was even repeated one evening. Desserts unimaginative. Too many onboard activities were at an extra fee.
Employees onboard were exceptional, almost every employee greeted us and were extremely courteous.
We had an inside stateroom that our steward kept very clean. But it was quite small - my wife and I could not get ready at the same time without bumping into each other.
We have traveled on 12-15 cruises, and this was probably our least favorite.

Ship Tip

Go to dinner before 7:30 pm. Immediate freestyle dining.

Cinque Terra tour was overpriced, especially for what you got for your money. Seas were fine, but they still has us take the train instead of the boat rides that we were looking forward to.

Le Petite Train just off the ship is a great way to tour this city, especially with views from the hills.

"Pleasures of Sorrento and Pompei" tour was a good value, especially with the lunch at a family Italian farmhouse.
