Great way to spend seven days on the sea and visit a few countries in the Caribbean. The food served on the ship was excellent, with many choices offered. Recommend you book early, before boarding, for speciality restaurants. Most of the ... Read more

The Epic is quite a unique ship. My wife and I loved the freedom to dine anytime and had lots of options which is standard for Norwegian. We have only cruised on Carnival previously so that was a huge upgrade for us. The staff was ... Read more

I chose this trip after enjoying my trans-atlantic trip with Norwegian Spirit last year but this time there were a few problems. The main one being that the Epic is too convoluted and rest areas too small for the number of passengers. ... Read more

Like others after reading the reviews I was nervous!! I've been cruising since I was 8 years old, and things have definitely changed across the industry, but it is still one of my favorite ways to travel. Pay close attention to those who ... Read more

,We did not pick this cruise out, our friends did since it was their 50th anniversary. The food was very good in the specialty restaurants. We liked Cagney`s the best but LeBistro was also very good. The entertainment in the theater was ... Read more

We chose this cruise because we had wanted to try a different cruise line from Carnival since we did Carnival for our previous cruise. Unfortunately, we were very disappointed with the cruise. There were so many people on the boat we were ... Read more

While the restaurants and food were pretty good, the rest of our experience was not. Staff were grumpy most of the time, Charge for things to do on board like art class that was a joke and deal or no deal was just a money making ... Read more

We were celebrating a friend's 50th birthday on this cruise, which was good fun. The ship is large, and was completely full = 4100 passengers. This ship showed us that we should stick to smaller cruises! Public areas feel very ... Read more
