Ship Facts: Norwegian Epic Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Norwegian Epic Deck Plans
EPIC IN STEERAGE
As a "steerage" class passenger, traveling in an inside cabin, I would like to make a few comments.

Worse cabins I have ever seen on any cruise ship. See-through toilet door on right-see-through bathroom door on left as you enter the cabin Sink in bedroom area sits on top of vanity(my bird bath at home is bigger)Splashes all over vanity and floor when used.

Public areas are very attractive and consider yourself fortunate if you can get a comfortable seat. Casino takes up most of Deck 6 and has smokers everywhere. Hard to even walk through for non-smokers. Maybe bring a gas mask if you decide to go.

Entertainment--good shows if you are fortunate enough to get reservations and don't mind standing in line at least 45-60 minutes prior to assure you can sit together. Makes for a lot of cranky people.

Crew was fantastic. They took the cream of the crop from all their other ships. Makes you wonder how service would be on those ships doesn't it.

If you don't want to spend a fortune to eat, us "poor folk" can eat in the free restaurant--of course you have limited menu, poor quality of food served lukewarm to cold.

Pool deck--two tiny pools and 6 hot tubs for over 4000 people double-occupancy and who knows how many with quad occupancy--NCL isn't saying.

There were many problems with the brand new ship such as flooding cabins, non-working telephones and safes,lousy TV (must pay for any movie} poor disembarkation procedures, etc. These will be worked out hopefully.

Pay Pay Pay for just about everything. The ship should have been named PAYALOT instead of EPIC.

Would not recommend it for average person who saves to go on vacation unless they suddenly win the lottery.
