Ship Facts: Norwegian Epic Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Norwegian Epic Deck Plans
Nickelodeon Cruise
We selected this ship because our daughter is a big fan of the Nickelodeon Network. She chose this over Disney. We liked the fact that the Epic is a relatively new ship. Overall, the ship board experience was good. The cabin was great. My main criticism is the lack of signage. You got to the elevators & stairs via small hallways that bend 90 degrees. There were no signs specifically denoting elevators or passenger stairs, only EXIT signs. Most exits were for emergencies and took you into areas that passengers are not allowed to go. Normally, a midships cabin is the place to be but on this ship, the stairs and elevators are at the ends.

Also, the embarkation process was a little disorganized. Once on board, everyone gravitated towards the pool area & buffet. Soon, ALL tables and chairs were taken and the whole place was way overcrowded. The initial greeters on board should do a better job of funneling people to different areas of the ship while they wait for their cabins to be cleaned.

The pool area was very nice. We saw the Blue Man Group and the Cirque dinner show. The Cirque show was one of the best I've seen onboard any ship!! The 3 excursions we took were all great but I have to single out the B.O.S.S.(read about it!!) excursion for special honors. The boat and crew were fantastic. The experience was awesome. Its the next best thing to actual scuba diving. Yes its pricey but well worth money. Overall, the food was good - not great. The food in the main dinning rooms was a little disappointing. Our biggest complaint was that fact that they only serve Pepsi products onboard. If you're a diehard Coke drinker, bring some with you!
