Norwegian Epic 5

“Loved the Epic”
Cruise review of Norwegian Epic


Overall Member Rating

The Epic was the most fun we've ever had on a vacation.

The entertainment onboard was astonishing. I'm so used to cheap feeling cruise grade entertainment. The name brand shows were amazing and it was hard to believe I was on a cruise ship. Blue Man Group, Second City, Cirque Dreams, Howl at the Moon, and more!

We dined in a different place every night and saw a different show in different venues every night. It was refreshing to not do the boring dinner and head to the main theater routine every night. The Manhattan Room, one of the two main dining rooms, had a great ambiance, with two story windows overlooking the wake of the ship and a dance floor and live band playing while you ate. We loved it. Moderno, the Brazilian Steakhouse specialty restaurant, was fantastic and just as good as Fogo de Chao on land.

We enjoyed our room very much and felt it was very functional. So much storage space in very clever places. The unconventional bathroom setup More was fun and it was actually more efficient. The bed was comfortable, the TV was a very nice wall-mounted LCD, and the balcony was spacious.

Staff was very friendly and professional. Always going above and beyond.

Only regret is we didn't get to do everything we wanted, but maybe we'll have to sail on the Epic again! Less

Cabin review: Mid-Ship Balcony

Halfway between forward and aft stairwells which was nice - depending on where you were going you could choose which stairwell you wanted to go to. Also, this cabin is on a portion of the side the juts out, which doesn't really matter but I liked that.
