This cruise was the perfect amount of time--four nights--and what made it really special was that we bought the Specialty Dining package for three nights. That meant we ate in the Palace Main Dining Room only one night which I must admit ... Read more

This was my wife and myself cruise number 10 ( 8 with NCL) and must admit we were wary of such a large ship, would you still get the Cruise experience or would it feel like a holiday resort. Felt we had the best of both. The Epic is ... Read more

Great way to spend seven days on the sea and visit a few countries in the Caribbean. The food served on the ship was excellent, with many choices offered. Recommend you book early, before boarding, for speciality restaurants. Most of the ... Read more

The Epic is quite a unique ship. My wife and I loved the freedom to dine anytime and had lots of options which is standard for Norwegian. We have only cruised on Carnival previously so that was a huge upgrade for us. The staff was ... Read more

We flew into Miami a night early. There was a bit of a snafu with the Pullman hotel, but NCL sorted it out right quick and we were soon ready to explore. We had enough time to grab some last minute items at the nearby CVS and some Cuban ... Read more

I have been cruising with NCL since 1995 ( 16 Cruises to date ). I really like the laid back atmosphere of the cruises. I like the ability to eat when you want and freedom to do whatever. The NY port is convenient for parking at the ... Read more

We took our first cruise to the Western Caribbean. The food was average at best. I found that the food wasn't very warm at any of the restaurants we ate at. We tried the buffet, which had a great variety as well as The Tropicana, ... Read more

It was a great trip. The Gem is a fine ship. The food was decent and sometimes excellent. The entertainment was very good, of course it wasn't all my favorite music. The shows were very good. I heard that the ship was sold out, so public ... Read more

We chose Pride of America as it seemed to be the best and easiest way to see Hawaii and the islands. Getting on the ship was very easy and we were on just after 12.15 (lunchtime). However, we heard (after a few hours wait) they were doing ... Read more
