Ship Facts: Norwegian Epic Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Norwegian Epic Deck Plans
First Time freestyle cruise
Started our journey at Mancester and flight down to Southampton which was fine met at the airport and coach to the terminal. Checkin was ok but not given any information about the ship eg layout etc and on boarding huge queue at reception desk,so managed to find our own way to the cabin. This was some what disappointing strange layout with the toilet and shower accessed via a glass door directly from the cabin.The sink was a disaster very small with a huge swan like tap which did not swivel making washing very difficult and the sink is too shallow.Not very much room between bed and cabinets.On the plus side the bed was very comfortable. Safe was unusable for 2 day and no telephone initially.

The public rooms are very well fitted out but for a ship this size the theatre is too small approx 600 capacity this resulted in many passengers missing the Legends Show. This is also the only cruise ship I have travelled on that charges for entertainment,come on NCL this is just not on.

Problems on the pool deck with water not draining away and frankly the size of the pools for a ship this size is pathetic, much too small.

Food was generally very good but service in the Manhatton Dining Room was somewhat eratic waited 35 mins for a starter course and twice at breakfast service was very poor.

Disembarkation in New Yorks was a disaster too many passengers opted to walk off with their luggage overloading the immigration hall leading to long delays for other passengers with colour coded luggage over 2hrs in our case!

Not likely to travel with NCL again
