Ship Facts: Norwegian Epic Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Norwegian Epic Deck Plans
Norweigan Epic
We loved our transatlantic cruise! There were lots of activities for all ages, and many different interests of cruisers. We especially enjoyed the water slides, rappelling, and rock climbing wall. The Epic staff were wonderful, and attentive to our every need. The theatre is smaller than we expected, but the variety of shows was good. The Cirque dinner was hard to watch and eat at the same time. We missed the games room and library quiet areas that other Norweigan cruise ships have. The photo gallery was well organized, with our dinner photos showing up in a binder with our room number promptly! The ship had great photographers. Our inside stateroom was small. We appreciated the split washroom, with the toilet separate from the shower. The lighting in the stateroom was too low for applying makeup or shaving. We utilized the fitness room daily, and even though the ship has lots of equipment, the fitness centre was quick crowded at peak times. The pools on board were fairly small, but the hot tubs were plentiful and well used. The ship is very clean, family friendly, as well as appealing to different adult groups. There was a variety of music choices available for dining. We loved listening to the classical Dolce Trio, piano, clarinet, and violin. The main dining rooms are not as grand as we prefer, but the ship's designer has successfully made huge restaurants intimate and subdued with the use of pillars, low ceilings and curtains.

There were two ports of call on this cruise, Ponta Delgada, Azores, and US Virgin Islands. Both were wonderful, and disembarkation and embarkation process went very smoothly.

We will definitely plan another cruise with NCL, and will likely look for the Norweigan Epic.
