The Luxury of Sailing on the Epic

Sail Date: May 2012
Destination: Europe - Western Mediterranean
Embarkation: Barcelona

Sailing on the Epic is pure luxury. The crew is so friendly and attentive. We had a Balcony Mini-Suite for this sailing. The room was well appointed with tons of storage. The shower was huge compared to any other ship. The bed was wonderfuly comfortable. Each night our room attendant folded a towel in the shape of an animal. We had the pleasure of again meeting Kai Turunen. Mr. Turunen is the Hotel Director for the Epic. What a wonderful man. He not only takes care of this ship; he is down on the pier greeting everyone when you return from the excursions. We had a ton of fun on the Epic. The shows are amazing. We loved the Blue Man group and the Circ dinner preformance.
Free Style cruising allows you to eat when you want to and not have to dress up for all the meals. LOVE this. We have sailed with Norwegian 6 times. We love the Norwegian ships so much; we booked 2 more cruises. Do not be afraid of the Epic. Yes, it is a big ship; but it is so well appointed and More planned you get around easier than a smaller ship. Sail the Epic and you too will be a loyal Norwegian. Less

Cabin review: Norwegian Epic 10081

If you have a chance; book a mini suite with a balcony! We were in room 10081. It is located not far from the elevators and very easy to get to. It was a nice quite room too. The storage is amazing. The bed is really comfortable. They have thought of every light you might wish for. The sofa is comfortable too. Now the shower! It is so large and the water pressure is amazing. I never ran out of hot water. The balcony for room 10081 is nice and large. Two people can sit outside and enjoy the sea air. This was the best stateroom we have ever had on any ship so far.

Port and Shore Excursions

Cinque Terre

Amazing experience. Lots of walking but again so worth it. Each part was just breathtakingly beautiful.

What a lovely little town. We sat by the sea and relaxed, then went to many cute little shops.

City Tour

A beautiful city and is so clean!

Eze Walking Tour

Just Ok.


Tons and tons of people! Our guide was realy good and kept us all together while telling us all about the Colosseum

St. Peter's Square

Visiting the Vatican means lots of waiting in line. It is worth every minute though. A once in a life time thrill.
