This was my very first cruise experience and it was less than pleasing. The accommodations were poor. The stateroom was falling apart. The beds were rickety and the cabin was unconfortable. The food was horrible and the entertainment was ... Read more

The service was hit or miss and mostly miss. No one seemed to hurry to help you. In the dining room on our first night it took us over an hour to get our main course and ended up walking out before we got a dessert menu because it was ... Read more

I've read several negative reviews of this ship, but our experience could not have been better. It was our first time cruising, so we don't have anything to compare it to. Plus, we booked a haven H2. It was a somewhat last minute trip, ... Read more

This was the first time that Epic was doing a 3 night cruise. Thankfully it was only 3 nights. The balcony in our room was pretty much not usable unless you enjoy smelling Chinese food cooking all the time. It didn't matter if we were ... Read more

I chose this cruise because of the special deals available. I chose a Spa Balcony room (identical to the regular balcony rooms except different color bed covering. We were in room 14141, which has a unique larger balcony shaped like a ... Read more

Just got off Epic 3/11/17.....good and bad, but doubt I will ever sail again on it. Port Canaveral check in process - there were two people checking ID's and cruise documents downstairs/outside the actual terminal. TWO checking in ... Read more

We are a couple in our 50s sailing for the first time on Norwegian. We've been on twenty something cruises, primarily with Celebrity, Royal Caribbean, and Princess. More recently we have been Celebrity loyalists. We booked this cruise ... Read more

Upon booking this cruise around November last year we were not made aware this would be what they called a "CPC" or college party cruise. This was my husbands first cruise experience and my 44th birthday celebration. Had we ... Read more

I went for my spring break with about 40 of my friends. We had the time of our lives. The all inclusive drinking and eating package was what made the experience wonderful. I think for the price we paid we got our money's worth. There ... Read more

My husband and I enjoyed this one-our fourth cruise, but not as much as some others. We thought that the staff members we encountered were nearly all pleasant and cheerful, and went out of their way to be of help when there were problems. ... Read more

My sister and I just returned from a week in the Bahamas. We were unaware that the week was Spring Break for college kids. We were told that the ship usually sails with 4,200-4,300 passengers. Due to Spring Break, an additional 600-700 ... Read more

We are a family of 4 and to save money on flying decided to drive to NYC from Toronto. Easy drive, parking at pier and short walk to embarkation. Cabin was fantastic with an angled balcony, sofa bed and pulldown; plenty of room for our ... Read more

So for the first day at sea, the outside deck is cold...so touring the ship, settling out items in the room, dining and watching a movie relaxed us after a long day of travel. The next day things warmed up and their was life on the deck. ... Read more

I chose this cruise because it was part of a larger group sailing together. I will begin by saying the service on the pool deck is horrendous. There is one bar and no waiters to get drinks from. The staff behind the bar are rude and ... Read more

Wanted to see what the Epic was all about and the price/timing was right. We're not thrilled with the wave design of the rooms and bathroom location, its strange and you better be good friends with whoever shares your cabin. The food and ... Read more

We chose this cruise for a family girls getaway because Pt Canaveral was close enough to drive to and I wanted to try out NCL. This was my 8th cruise and my first on NCL. We took the shuttle from Four Points Sheraton where we did the ... Read more

The ship looks like it's large but once you get on board it feels like there are only 4 places to hang out. All the additional dining options and experiences that require an upcharge dominate the space on the ship. Our interior cabin ... Read more

This was a last minute cruise. Wanted to try NCL as we've cruised before. Sad to say, we wont be on this again. Knew cabin would be small going in but the bed was atrocious. Two cots wrapped in a layer of foam put into mattress protector, ... Read more

This was my 13th cruise with Norwegian and my 5th on the Breakaway. I chose this ship because it was a local trip for me to get to the ship, as I live in NJ. We were at the pier by 9:30am (because we had to depend on a ride into NY who had ... Read more
