Definitely Not EPIC
Norwegian Epic Cruise Review to Caribbean - Western
Review summaryOn boarding process 2 1/2 hr wait no water no communication no shade. They waited on the bus and hr for transfer to the dock. No Hanukkah at all even though the cruise is advertised as such on ncl.com. no communication about the Tenders and reservations. Told we need in day 1 welcome info that large parties need a reservation but when we call told only after 830 at night . Room vent covered in dust/ clogged. No enforcement of the no holding chairs on the pool deck after 2 hrs. No enough staff to assist the guests. Lack of power for the staff to help guests with issues. I heard "I'm sorry but there's nothing I can do" over and over. Canceling our excursion because it wasn't finished, even advertising it and allowing us to book and pay for it without it being done. And then we don't find out until the excursion tickets are delivered to the room. Lines with lines at guest relations and the shore excursion staff had only 2 people at the desk. They closed early at 9:00pm, we had to leave our to talk -see 830 dinner reservation-to discuss the shore excursion issue. Nickel and dimed for food menu items, even in the "complimentary" ( not so much since we paid for the cruise) dinning rooms there were up charges for certain menu items. Denny- customer service assistant manager- couldn't make the reservation for dinner so we once again ate late ...children disappointed by missing Jamaica..but not as important. App works poorly. Difficulty trying to reach other parties. No notification sounds when receiving a text. No updated information on app. No times for kids activities in the Entourage, no times the stores close . Teen lounge not available for teens hang out in. Why have a,teen lounge if you can't use the teen lounge except for the planned 11:30pm parties. No way to link 1 family in 2 staterooms. Kept the accounts separate when they should have been blended. Waited in line to pick up photos, got to the front of the line, then told I had to move to another line and wait. Poor signage and directions. Never printed our friends photos that they paid for! They tried to get them 4 times and then had to leave the ship. Save your money and go on a different cruise line. Very Disappointing!
