A trip from the netherworld! Oh boy.: Norwegian Epic Cruise Review by firsttime(1)
Overall Member Rating
A trip from the netherworld! Oh boy.
Destination: Eastern Caribbean
When I asked the deck staff to towels so I could sit down, they said they couldn't do that and it was unlikely that the towels would be removed by them.
I paid the full fare for this cruise and had no place to sit on the deck at 9:00 am in the morning. Duh!
The ports of call were filled with ramped poverty that shocked me and many other Americans that flooded into the ports. I did enjoy being on the high seas. However, the food preparation, service and presentations were definitely below average from what I am use too. It was more like Holiday Inn, not every the Express.
On the other hand my cabin steward was just fantastic and the other solo passengers were great to be with. That part worked. Everything else failed for me. I would definitely rate my experience as 30% fair and 70% unacceptable
for what I paid for it,$2600.00 including shore excursions, additional charges for food and alcohol and air fair both ways.
I will be much more selective the next time I cruise.
Sorry to disappoint you! Less
Cabin review: T112528 Studio
If you are a smaller than average individual (height & weight)you are going to feel cramped any where you go on this vessel. It is not designed for those even average or above average in these areas. Interior Design is questionable as to the amount of privacy Americans expect for peronal activities. No absolute privacy from view in many cabins. More like a hospital, curtains all over the place Duh! Second class at best. That is not my idea of an innovation. It is more like a reduction in services for a higher price by substituting an exasperating amount of technology to replace class. Technology is "modern" art not "Art;" it is a sub-set of all art. A more well rounded presentation could help me get over being surrounded by plastic flowers. Most of the hotels that I frequent use real flowers. Thanks but no thanks! I am not sure the NCL marketing department fully understands what the word "innovation" means. I think they are just like most corporate marketing geeks. That use words that deceive you and in their ambitions to sell their mothers to the underworld. There are better managed cruise lines out there. Keep searching!Read All Studio (T1) Reviews >>
