Norwegian Epic

Sail Date: January 18, 2015

Reviewed: 2 years ago

Traveled As: Large Group

Room Type: Balcony

Ship was good with excellent shows even though you had to wait in line with a reservation. Third week of January is bad week to cruise on Norwegian. Found out the 3rd week of January is winter break for certain private schools. Kids and teens ran wild with very little discipline from parents, especially in the restaurants. Extremely loud (children yelling) in the main dining room. On buffet, kids would take food, taste and put back on line, no parent around. I have been on a Carnival cruise in July and had no problem with kids.

Balcony room smaller than other ships I have been on. We were not allowed to open dividers between rooms. We traveled with group and wanted to enjoy balcony with our friends.
Miami, Florida Quick on and off ship. Parking expensive but right across street. Porter there to carry luggage to car for you.
Ocho Rios, Jamaica Not impressed
George Town, Grand Cayman Stomach virus that day. Didn't keave room.
Cozumel, Mexico Favorite port for people watching which is what I do best.
