Ship Facts: Norwegian Epic Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Norwegian Epic Deck Plans
Amongst our best cruises so far!
We flew from Montreal to Barcelona and had to wait for other passengers before the shuttle would leave for the port. Since Barcelona's airport is pretty close to the port, we would have been better off taking a taxi!

So we went directly to the port and arrived later than expected because of airline delays.

The EPIC is simply the best ship we cruised thus far! Our cabin was a mini-suite. I don't know what makes it a mini-suite except maybe the bathtub. Nevertheless the cabin had plenty of storage and for a couple its layout was great!

We really enjoyed the top-notch shows onboard. The "Howl at the Moon" was also one of our favorites.

The two dining rooms are really nice and whenever we had to wait for a table we would get vouchers for free sparkling wine. A nice touch! The alternate dining venues were also quite interesting.

We only had one day at sea during the week so we didn't spend a lot of time around the pools.

Being our first European cruise, we booked tours for all but one port of call. Most ports of call are pretty far from the cities we wanted to visit so on average the tours lasted 8-10 hours! They were also quite expensive compared to ones in the Caribbean.

We loved the EPIC so much that we will definitely sail again on her in the future.
