7 Night Western Mediterranean (Barcelona Roundtrip)
Sail Date: April 17, 2016
Ship: Norwegian Epic
Cabin Type: Oceanview
Traveled As: Couple
Reviewed: 1 year ago

Norwegian is very efficient in processing large number of passengers - they have to because the Epic carries over 5,000. The cabin staterooms were average size but clean and the service was exceptionally good. The highlight were the common areas for dining, entertainment. The food and beverage were average but available almost continuously. The entertainment particularly "Burn the Floor"  featured a world renouned Broadway goup of dancers who were spectacular and taught us how to dance Salsa, Meringe, Line Dance, .... The shore excursions were excellent particularly around the Grand Canary Islands. An enjoyable trip!

Ship Tip

NCL is a very well run cruise line - very professional but not spectacular.
