11 Night Transatlantic Eastbound (Miami To Barcelona)
Sail Date: April 19, 2015
Ship: Norwegian Epic
Cabin Type: Balcony
Cabin Number: 14045
Traveled As: Couple
Reviewed: 3 years ago

The public facilities (restaurants, bars, night clubs etc.}are good. The entertainment was first rate. The food in the Garden Cafe was very good and well presented. The specialty restaurants were excellent in food and atmosphere.

Now the bad part. Our cabin was easily the worst in all my 26 cruises. It was a balcony cabin and was so poorly designed and laid out that I dreaded entering it. Norwegian decided to split the bathroom into three tiny parts: water closet on the left, shower on the right and lavatory in the cabin itself. No walking room in the cabin, no chair to sit in. TV only watchable if in the bed. Couch poorly located and uncomfortable. No night tables.Lighting cold and poorly located. Bed rock hard. I could go on but I will just say: Avoid this cabin at all cost unless you enjoy being depressed and uncomfortable!
