7 Night Western Mediterranean (Rome Roundtrip)
Sail Date: July 08, 2015
Ship: Norwegian Epic
Cabin Type: Inside
Cabin Number: 11109
Traveled As: Family (older children)
Reviewed: 2 years ago

The Norwegian Epic had a great looking cabin but some of the space was not very practical.  It looks as if it is newly decorated but some of the details were not passenger friendly such as the lights over the vanity were very dim.  There is a small pull out ledge on which to put your tray if you order room service but there is only one ledge and only one stool for a cabin with two passengers which means one person will have to eat in the bed.  There is also a charge for breakfast room service if you order anything that is not listed in the complimentary menu such as eggs!!   I was also disappointed in that we attended one onboard show which was supposed to be complimentary but we were charged for it on our final bill.  One other disappointment was the adults pool which was very small, maybe a 12 -20 capacity, if that;  the water was also around bath temperture.  But a very pretty ship.

Cabin / Stateroom

Please see the overall review which covers the cabin. One last note: the doors to the shower and also to the commode area are glass. What happens if the doors break during a bad storm?

Ship Tip

The itinerary was great and the tours were very good with the exception of one which was not booked through the cruise line. Keep in mind that there will be some walking even for the level 1 tours. In a couple of towns, I took a taxi back to the bus rather than walk but I'm in my late sixties.
