Review Summary

Had an awesome experience on Norwegian Epic and met a lot of great people. It was a beautiful modern ship and clean!


The staff is wonderful and very very friendly. The only drawback is that there were a lot of people due to a couple of weddings. Ohh and the food in the Manhattan Room was not great but whatever, there are plenty of other restaurants that you can choose from.


If you are a young couple or enjoy a big party, than this is the ship for you. I felt like we were at one big party and everyone was involved and enjoying themselves. I particularly enjoyed how the staff decorated the ship for Halloween and some of the staff were dressed up...this made me smile.


The sites were amazing but I highly recommending doing your research for the best excursion deals and do not book an excursion everyday, try doing Hop on Hop Off tours in between. If you do an excursion everyday you will be exhausted and wont enjoy the ship that much...that's my opinion of course! :)

NCL Epic tendered in Cannes, France.

Small but doable... Not suitable for more than two people. The balcony is an enclosed balcony. But still amazing and you can see everything.

Ship Tip

Bring a carry on with clothes.... Just in case the airlines loose your luggage. We did it, and so happy that we did. Some cruisers had their luggage lost by the airline.
