We saw sea otters, whales, sea lions, whales, dolphins, and a shooting star in addition to the Hubbard glacier up close and personal...calving and booming from the ship, not from a shore excursion! What a show! The food and the staff were ... Read more

All in all for the price the cruise was really good! I didn't pay too much at all so the things that might have bothered me otherwise didn't. I was in the Solo Cabin so I also believe my experience was different from the non solo. ... Read more

First cruise, mixed review. Staying in the Haven was a most amazing experience. The butler was on the spot as was most of the staff. The room was also great. The specialty restaurants were pretty good for the most part, though the ... Read more

Being our first cruise as a family I was very reluctant to go on the Norwegian Epic due to the low rating I noticed on different sites but that was too late as I had already paid the full trip amount and wasn't ready to bare the ... Read more

The cruise itself was amazing. The offshore excusion was the jeep tour. They were terrible! Not prepared, not enough water for the 107 degree weather. Bad breaks and one jeep ran into the back of another one. One jeep broke down! We had to ... Read more

Beautiful ship! Good food and service. Didn't love all the ports. Athens is not a place I want to revisit. Croatia is it okay but probably not a place I would visit again. Santorini is wonderful but I had been there before, ... Read more

Our cruise started with a late embarkation due to a transportation issue...our bus broke down on the way to the pier, so we were not actually aboard until just after 3 PM. Made it just in time to find our cabin (Deck 11 Inside) and report ... Read more
