Norwegian Epic

February 2015 - Norwegian Epic to Caribbean - Western

An Epic cruise

Food was of a very high quality and Norwegian deserves its great reputation for entertainment. Short time in Grand Cayman together with tendering requirements (hassle)  made us choose to stay on board. Our snorkeling and beach excursion at Cozumel was cancelled due to winds but a couple of hours at Senor Frogs made up for it. Do not like the design of the balcony cabins - least favourite of any cruise ship that we have been on - they made this curved wall thing so that they could cram in more staterooms per linear foot of the ship and it's a failure. Try and reserve your entertainment before sailing, as it books up fast. Second City is good if you hit the right show (ie go to where they do play acting, not game shows) unfortunately when you reserve ahead of time you don't know which show you are getting.

Regal Princess

January 2015 - Regal Princess to Caribbean - Eastern

Regal Princess

Enjoyed this new ship. One complaint was the lack of stairs by the centre elevators at the higher decks - made the elevators congested and had to go to the port/stern stairs. Also, the food (especially beef) seemed to be lesser quality and made us wonder if the best cuts were going to the specialty restaurants, which you have to pay for, of course. Liked the Love Boat them song by Jack Jones when we got on board but my oh my heard it a lot throughout! Great HD large-screen TVs in the staterooms with a lot of choice of good programming. Liked especially the movie being available that had show on Movies Under the Stars the night before.

Norwegian Breakaway

May 2014 - Norwegian Breakaway to Bermuda

Well done Norwegian Breakaway.

An excellent cruise although two complaints with the aspect. 1) The advertised special offers that caused us to book with were not all provided. A Specialty Dining offer was "sold out" when I went to book. Don't believe this as all the specialty restaurants were not busy during the cruise. In fact Norwegian was pusing the "$119 for all specialty restaurants" deal because of under-subscription at the beginning and then were heavily advertising deals for any of the specialty restaurants all during the cruise. 2) The one excursion that we booked was through - Best Bermuda Snorkel Adventure. It was cancelled at the arranged rendezvous because of "high winds". Doubt this, as all the Norwegian snorkling excursions went. I believe that it was cancelled because not enough people had booked it. A refund had to be requested through , although the contact said that it would be automatically processed by them.
