We just returned from a fabulous week on Epic! The staff were all amazing and deserve praise. Embarkation and disembarkation went quickly. Our spa mini suite was just as expected, and the bathroom set-up not really a problem. The spa is ... Read more

We were a bit nervous before sailing as the early reviews for this new ship were not spectacular. All in all we did enjoy this cruise very much. In the past we had cruised on Royal Caribbean's Oasis and the Allure, so my comparison is ... Read more

This was not only my first cruise with NCL, but the 3 other passengers I brought with me. The impression was that the cruise was geared more towards an older crowd. We are in the range of 28-38 years of age. I didn't mind that it was not a ... Read more

For months we looked at reviews and wondered what our experience with NCL would be. There is something I saw a while back that summed it all up: There is no such thing as a bad cruise. Catastrophes aside, this is true. No matter the ... Read more
