Worth it: Norwegian Epic Cruise Review by merphile
Overall Member Rating
Destination: Europe - Western Mediterranean
Cabin review: 11079
The cabin was great (comfortable, lots of storage space, good bedding (except the child bed), no noise or vibration, convenient separation of toilet, bad tub and sink spaces).
Port and Shore Excursions
Good organisation, proximity to the city (but you need a taxi to get there), nice views.
As such you don't dock at the port but in the middle of the bay. Very beautiful location. Well organised tender service and you are in the middle of the town, with main landmarks, great shopping and beach within walking distance. Best stopover of the whole cruise.
Florence & Pisa Tour
The guide was confusing and her English was poor. Livorno is pretty far away from Pisa and Florence. Good for those who want to make themselves an idea to return some other time. Too bad it was pouring.
Pompeii Walking Tour
Good duration for doing it with children but one only visits a part of it. Too bad it was pouring.
The ship docks at the very end of the port so you need to take public transportation (easy and convenient bus line) to get to the centre. Nice location. Palma is a very nice place with very pretty city centre and great shopping.
Seemed like a training cruise
Overall a great experience
