Lovely time in Italy and Spain by mimi2be

Sail date: / Traveled as: Singles/Friends
Ship: Norwegian Epic

Overall, this cruise was a very nice return to cruising for me after a couple of years of covid related travel limitations. The itinerary was full of interesting ports, which is what I like in a cruise. The crew were cheerful and attentive. My cabin was a comfy oasis to return to after a fun day of touring. The food was quite tasty and the entertainment abundant. I would highly recommend this ship and itinerary!

Not worth the money. by ericcandrus

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Norwegian Epic

Would not have taken this cruise if I knew it was so restricted. Norwegian advertised fully vaccinated cruise with freedom to act accordingly. Was not the case in reality.

Return to Sea by JohnFiscus

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Norwegian Epic

Being on one of the first Western Mediterranean cruises post pandemic has challenges. Norwegian did an excellent job in making us safe. There was less freedom in Italy to enjoy visit. I am glad we went but need to revisit when the world is more normal

Mixed Review by DaraC2

Sail date: / Traveled as: Family (young children)
Ship: Norwegian Epic / Destination: Caribbean - Southern

Overall nice cruise in the Haven aboard the Epic. I do not think it was a very good value for the money, however, having sailed in other cruiseline’s suite categories.

Good Cruise, Been on Better by harrykopy

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Norwegian Epic / Destination: Caribbean - Southern

This was our 6th cruise with Norwegian, and as far as the Epic goes, probably our least favorite ship. I think we'll be looking at smaller ships in the future, and maybe move away from NCL. Not sure the few Latitude rewards they give you really make up for the thousands of dollars you spend, and get a so-so experience. This voyage was to include a stop in Bonnaire, but it was taken off the itinerary without explanation, and the time spent in Curacao was originally a more reasonable 8am port time, than the 6am time that had us rolling our eyes...Sometimes I wonder if the head honchos at NCL try and make their employees that serve us on the ship make up for their own lack of "keeping the customer satisfied" with communication. Frank Del Rio...Why was there a change in the ship's itinerary??? No one else seems to know!

Freestyling is great! by parjardin

Sail date: / Traveled as: Family (older children)
Ship: Norwegian Epic / Destination: Caribbean - Southern

This ship although huge was very easy to move around in and I was wheelchair bound. There was always a staff or crew member willing to assist you. Areas on ship are always clean. Extra care and sanitation is given to entrances to dining areas. The phrase "washy washy, happy happy" keeps ringing in my head. Been on many cruises, so far Norwegian is my favorite. Freestyle is for me!

Nice Experience by fatotonto

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Norwegian Epic / Destination: Caribbean - Southern

Overall it was a very nice experience. The layout of the vessel is different, but you get used to it. Even though it was a sold out trip, it never felt too overcrowded. The food was good, but not gourmet. Too much chicken. Missed some shrimp or escargots. The theater was too small, but at least they had two daily performances. The ports of call were good, but needed more time in some of them.

Beautiful destinations but little time at ports by Lotts

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Norwegian Epic / Destination: Caribbean - Southern

Loved the destinations just times were bad. Least favorite balcony room on Norwegian. Too many people which made buffer, pool area, gym not as enjoyable. Hallways were warm and NO air in elevators.

nice getaway by LisaH13

Sail date: / Traveled as: Singles/Friends
Ship: Norwegian Epic / Destination: Caribbean - Southern

I will never go on this ship again because of the balcony stateroom's poor layout. The rest of the ship is fine just showing its wear and tear.

Not our favorite ship by dbjernin

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Norwegian Epic / Destination: Caribbean - Southern

This is definitely a ship with a younger crowd. It would be fine for some people, but for us it was far too crowded.

The Epic is Not our favorite Norwegian Ship by carolbletz

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Norwegian Epic / Destination: Caribbean - Southern

We loved the specialty restaurants, food was very good, the main dining room was great, the main shows were outstanding but we didn't like the ship or stateroom design. We love Norwegian but not this ship. We won't sail on the Epic again. We have been on many of Norwegian's ships and the Epic design pales in comparison. We didn't care for the way they set up their entertainment venues either (excluding the theater). Putting their best performances in the smallest of venues when they had much larger more accomadating venues that were under utlized.

Awesome Itinerary, fantastic crew, we had a great time. by nsj1203

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Norwegian Epic / Destination: Caribbean - Southern

We had great weather, very good Itinerary for our 11 Night Cruise. Ship's crew and staff did a very good job. Ship's design and layout were not to our liking (but that is us). Some other cruisers enjoyed the room designs. Entertainment was very good, they just need to organize better. I was disappointed at being charged taxes on our Free drinks while in San Juan.

great itinerary by nms1114

Sail date: / Traveled as: Singles/Friends
Ship: Norwegian Epic / Destination: Caribbean - Southern

I understand that there are thousands of people for the staff to wrangle during excursion line-ups. But there is a lot of line jumping by inconsiderate passengers, and the staff gets overwhelmed and lets these people bulldoze in.

Fabulous 11 days!! by kstonge60

Sail date: / Traveled as: Family (older children)
Ship: Norwegian Epic / Destination: Caribbean - Southern

Very nice trip - enjoyed spending time with friends. The bar outside Cagney's was great - our meeting spot and bar server made sure we had an area saved for group at 500 - and plenty of drinks and peanuts. Spa service was excellent. Food was average except for French bistro. Missed an area in the front of the ship to relax and watch the ocean like on the Bliss. Room Steward Putu was fantastic. Overall a great time!
