I was with my grandkids and I thought this would be a good idea to take the Epic with the Splash, and other games for kids,. My family were particularly happy to see that this ship and cruise had things for young kids. The Splash was a ... Read more

Mine and my cousins first time cruising! We flew from Birmingham to Barcelona (a city we have had the pleasure of a 3 day city break so didn't explore further, we wanted to see our Epic ship!) on Ryanair- not an ounce of turbulence and ... Read more

We decided on Norwegian for our European Adventure a little over a year before our trip and were never disappointed. The website was easy to navigate prior to the trip and Norwegian sent reminders for all the important dates we needed to ... Read more

This ship will challenge you in so many ways. The food and entertainment on board were very good indeed and this explains the Rating overall. However, there is nothing relaxing, sophisticated nor memorable except for the congested, ... Read more

We just returned from our great cruise on the Epic! The ship is massive and beautiful! The layout is logical. The staterooms are modern and well-planned, although not huge. The crew is very friendly and helpful! Our steward was very ... Read more

We returned from our cruise in the Med (26 June-3Jul) on the Epic and I was epically surprised (in a good way). We travelled with our two children (7 and 10) and we all had a ball. We had spent months reading reviews on this website ... Read more

This was my second NCL cruise and seventh overall. As with my previous NCL cruise, there was good value for the money but not the best cruise line I have ever sailed. I sailed with my boyfriend, no kids. Getting on and off the ship was ... Read more

Just returned from 7 days on the Western Mediterranean. Stayed room 17003 in the haven-a two bedroom. The perks of the Haven are so great-with lots of time saving benefits and select seats for show. Our problem was a water leak in ... Read more

Just returned from an excellent cruise on the NCL Epic. Barcelona airport is dreadful but once you manage to escape NCL kindly took us on a free bus ride around Barcelona which was really informative if you haven't visited before. Check in ... Read more

Family Vacation. This ship is too big. If you have a midship cabin you have to walk to bow or stern to get to elevators no midship elevators. The seperate shower, toilet, sink is not fun, I like all three in a bathroom. Service was not ... Read more

We have completed over 15 cruises, 3 of them previously with NCL. We chose this ship as we were travelling with family who had not cruised before and it had attractions for everybody. Embarkation was very speedy in Barcelona and our ... Read more

First time we had cruised with NCL and really enjoyed it. There were six adults in our party and we didn't have too many problems finding seats together except in the Garden café Buffet! Our balcony cabin (12052) was clean and ... Read more

Had another wonderful cruise with NCL, great places to visit, good food and entertainment. NCL are very informal but can get rather noisy at times and there are not always enough loungers available on days at sea. However, I feel I must ... Read more

The criteria was pretty good: price, room for singles, exact days for my vacation. That's all I can say that's positive. During embarkation my luggage wasn't on my room. They torn away the paper you had to put around the handle. I even ... Read more
