Sail Date: February 01, 2013
Ship: Norwegian Epic
Cabin Type: Balcony
Traveled As: Large Group

The ship is new, but was extremely crowded. You had to fight, and we actually saw multiple arguments when trying to find a deck chair. The ship was nnot able to go to the Bahamas as was orginally part of the plan. They said the port had no room for our ship. So we basiclaly ahd 5 sea days and only two islands. We had a balcony room , but both cabins on each side of us sat on their balconies chain smoking the entire cruise. We were not able to really sit out there. A good number of the crew members were not very attetive or friendly, perhaps because they automatically get thier tips regardless. Not our best cruise expereince. We've been on more then 10 cruises and this was the only one we've had complaints about.
