Norwegian Epic

August 2015 - Norwegian Epic to Europe - Western Mediterranean

Hated to see it end...

I thought the experience was fun, educational, and exciting. For me, the excursions made the trip. Best time: bike riding in Palma, followed closely by the excursion to the Amalfi Coast & Pompeii. The buffet was pretty good but the free specialty restaurants are much quieter and less chaotic. I did not care for the people coming into the buffet area fresh from the pool deck dressed in bathing suits with cover-ups, plus kids running around. The shows were fun and they have lots of onboard activities, especially for kids. "Howl at the Moon" dueling piano bar was the BEST! I liked the running/jogging area on the port side. Staff are all friendly and eager to help. We got a balcony room which I would highly recommend. It was beautiful at night watching the full moon on the water.

srentch's Tips

Livorno (Florence & Pisa), Italy - We went to Pisa to see the Leaning Tower; of course it was very crowded. I hear May or October are much better times to visit (we went in August).
Civitavecchia (Rome), Italy - We flew into Rome where we started the cruise. When we returned, we spent an extra 3 days in Rome which I would highly recommend since you don't get to see the city before you get on the ship. Rome was amazing! We stayed at the Airport Hilton which has a free shuttle that goes back and forth into Rome several times a day. A BIG plus!
Cannes, France - Our excursion was to the medieval town of Eze (overlooking the Mediterranean) which was great but not enough time to really see it plus the shops were just opening when we left. Monaco was beautiful but Monte Carlo was a waste of time since the main thing to see is the casino and it doesn't open until 2:30.
