2 out of 5
Sail Date: August 01, 2013
Ship: Norwegian Epic
Cabin Type: Inside
Traveled As: Large Group

A couple of years ago\, my wife and I took a Caribbean cruise on board the Norwegian Pearl\, it was the best experience I've had with cruises\, so we chose Norwegian again\, but the Epic turned out to be a great disappointment and did not fulfill our expectations.

Food and Dining

1 out of 5
Either go really early\, or wait in line to be seated\, sometimes for almost 1 hour. The food selection on the regular restaurants was really poor\, my wife enjoys sushi a lot\, and said the sushi bar was good\, I can't comment on that since I am not a big fan of sushi.


3 out of 5
The Blue Man Group\, Flamenco and the Circus were good\, the rest is not worth the time you spend there

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
Really helpful and polite

Ship Quality

1 out of 5
I understand the Epic has been remodeled and reconditioned\, but it is still an old ship. There is too many people for the size of it. Pools are really tiny.

Cabin / Stateroom

3 out of 5
As expected

Pros: As in any cruise\, you get to visit many ports without having to change hotels

Cons: Read below

Recommends Norwegian Epic? No.
