7 Night Western Mediterranean (Barcelona Roundtrip)
Sail Date: May 31, 2015
Ship: Norwegian Epic
Cabin Type: Inside
Cabin Number: 11118
Traveled As: Couple
Reviewed: 3 years ago

The ship and itinerary (Barcelona, Naples (Pompeii), Civitavecchia (Rome), Livorno (pisa/Florence), Cannes (Nice, Monte Carlo), and Palma Mallorca were fantastic. The epic is a fantastic vessel, my girlfriend and I booked an interior cabin and the room was more than sufficient. While the quarters are tight, every bit of space is taken advantage of wisely. Our service in every part of the ship was first class all the way. The food was fantastic in all of the complimentary restaurants. There is always something to do on the ship, whether you want to party the night away or just relax.

We also were able to go to all of the ports and see all of the sights on our own without booking any shore excursions. While seeing the better parts of a port like Rome in only a few hours independently is slightly stressful it IS doable if you're savvy and willing to embrace public transit and ask questions.

Great experience overall and I wouldn't hesitate to sail the NCL Epic again soon.

Pompeii is a must see, short train ride away.

Get to the train to Rome EARLY. Reccomend using MAYA tours in order to skip the intense line at the Vatican.

Take the train to Monaco while there.
