7 Night Western Mediterranean (Barcelona Roundtrip)
Sail Date: May 10, 2015
Ship: Norwegian Epic
Cabin Type: Balcony
Cabin Number: 8198
Traveled As: Couple
Reviewed: 2 years ago

Ship was centered around the casino, specialty dining and a costly dinner show.  It seemed we were constantly passing through the casino to get anywhere.  We enjoyed the complimentary dining rooms but found they were seldom open for breakfast and lunch at convenient times.  The specialty dining was over rated and was not worth the extra $30. per person!  Complimentary entertainment was average. This ship lacked anything special compared to other cruise ships.

Our room steward did an outstanding job...Go Reggie!!

Least favorite port. Did the On & Off Bus which was ok. Wasted money taking the transportation offered by the ship.
