Mediterranean, Canary and Madeira Islands Cruise

Sail Date: January 24, 2016

Reviewed: 1 year ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Balcony

Overall, an excellent cruise. The Norwegian Epic, crew, food and ocean view balcony were fabulous.  We had free dining and drink cards which allowed my wife and I access to all specialty restaurants and drinks throughout the ship. The crew were always friendly and helpful. There were several excellent specialty restaurants and numerous cocktail bars to serve our needs. We took shore excursions at all ports and they were all quality.  Our ship couldn't stop at the port for the Rome visit due to rough weather and the Captain's concern over possible damage to the ship while docking. This added another day at sea (nine days total) which gave us time to read or enjoy the many activities on the ship.

Cabin / Stateroom
The Balcony design is tight but excellent and has great views of the water. There were two chairs and a small table on the deck. The bed was very comfortable but not long enough for my 6'3" frame. We really enjoyed the room and porter who treated us as his family. We would be presented each day with an animal or two made entirely out of towels!

Travel with another couple. It really makes the cruise a better experience to have friends to share the ship's restaurants, entertainment, and many venues.
