Solo traveler: Norwegian Epic Cruise Review by lareefun
Overall Member Rating
Destination: Europe - Western Mediterranean
I meet the head of the hotel department during a Latitudes welcome back event. He remembered me from the February cruise, I was coordinating the Cruise Critic activites for about 100 people on that cruise. He sent me a lovely hand written note, a bottle of wine and either chocolates or chocolate covered strawberries every evening.
All in all I was treated very well on this cruise. The only complaints I have were safety in nature. The ship is only a couple of years old and is showing a lot of wear and tear already. I found exposed wiring on the steps in the Epic Theater (safety lighting), missing rubber safety inserts on some of the outside stair cases. Chipped paint and rust showing on railings all over the ship. I did report these issues, just will have to take another cruise on the Epic to see if these have been addressed and of course if the shower door had finally been installed.
By the way I do not drink and I was able to exchange the 2 bottles of wine for 8 cans of soda. Less
Cabin review: T112516 Studio
Studio cabin 12516, very near the studio lounge one floor up, can hear the toilet flush in the next cabin, but not too often. Can hear people passing by the door and can hear the passage door opening and closing. None of which was really bothersome at all. Other that the issue with a missing shower door replaced with a flimsy shower curtain, I would book this same cabin again. Hopefully the shower door will be installed when I next cruise on the Epic.Read All Studio (T1) Reviews >>
