Efficient systems but a very crowded ship.: Norwegian Epic Cruise Review by belfastlady
Overall Member Rating
Efficient systems but a very crowded ship.
Destination: Europe - Western Mediterranean
The food was okay - the Garden Cafe was always too busy, you had to search for a table and then one person keep the seats while the others got the food. We ate in Taste several times and found the food acceptable, my son found it difficult to find food he liked and had the courses nearly every day. The day we went to Cagneys he found it awful as he is not a big meat eater. I found La Cucina rather bland, I had Calamari and Seafood Risotto - both uninteresting.
We had room service a couple of times, which was okay, although breakfast often was not what we ordered. The excursions we went on were well organised and quite enjoyable, but terribly expensive, especially having to pay for my children as adults. I found the ship terribly American, which I had not expected. It was annoying to go to the ATMs onboard to get cash to go ashore and find they only dispensed dollars. We went to a few shows and enjoyed some of them. We didnt use the pools, we are all swimmers and the pools were too small and full of people, and the pool deck was horribly crowded all the time and there were towels on all the sunbeds all the time. The kids said the slides were tame, they did use the climbing wall, and went bowling and the enjoyed the teen lounge and activities. Less
Good view, not overlooked, smelt of food most of the time. Too small for three people. Water splashes out of the sink.
Seemed like a training cruise
Overall a great experience
Haven spoiled us for cruising
Balcony Not Usable - Pool Area...
