Ship Facts: Norwegian Epic Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Norwegian Epic Deck Plans
Norwegian Epic
If you like to smoke or breath second hand smoke,this is the ship for you! The casino is in the middle and is open 2-3 floors up, so all bars and entertainment areas stink like smoke. The Epic Theatre stinks like a dirty ashtray. The adult pool allowed smoking down by the pool 15 ft or less from non smokers. If you were not a smoker when you boarded this ship will make you feel like a smoker when you get off, and all of your clothes will stink.

You pay extra for most entertainment, which we found no better than other ships that we have been on. Young children (even in strollers) are allowed to attend late night bar entertainment and even participate. In our opinion that should not be allowed, give the adults without kids some adult time. After 7 should be just adult time in bars.

We had 3 in our room. When you enter the room using your key card in order to get lights you need to put that key card in a slot. When leaving the room and that person needs their key card they pull it out and it is lights out for the other 2. Terrible design. Right inside the door of the room is the bathroom with a sliding plastic frosted door, and on the other side is a shower with another sliding plastic door. Not private at all. Sink is in main area. Terrible design for 3 people to share. The fold out couch ended up being a semicircle of a couch that had sheets and a blanket. It was the width of a regular couch in a semicircle shape. Very hard to sleep on for a week. Plus the toilet is inches away from the persons head on couch when sleeping, so anyone that gets up at night wakes couch person up. Terrible design.

Food was left in our hallways for days, and even mold started growing on it. Not just one plate, lots of plates next to doors. People started piling them in the corners of hallways. Smell was terrible. This ship lacks terribly in cleanliness.

One of the things we liked was the casual dining in the dining room Taste. That was a nice change.

Our excursions were great also.
