We chose this itinerary as we were looking for one that offered my father ports to which he hadn't traveled. Beginning in Rome, and visiting Naples, Messina, Olympia, Athens, Limassol, (not really) Cairo, Haifa, Aqaba, Safaga, Salalah, ... Read more

We chose this cruise so we could get from Rome to Barcelona for a TA on the NCL Jade. It was a great bargain and we were lucky to have an aft cabin on the 13th floor. The cabin itself is poorly designed with a curved uncomfortable love ... Read more

We got a great deal on the cruise and stayed in a mini suite, which was a good size with a huge bed and even had a bath in the bathroom. Plenty of wardrobe space which was a bonus. The ship was refurbished in 2015 and you can really see ... Read more

I wanted to cruise the Mediterranean as a solo passenger. I am very thankful that Norwegian sees that market and provides studios. The cost was $899 for 7 nights (NO ridiculous single supplement charge like other cruise lines!). The ... Read more

I went on this cruise just to get away from the cold weather in Sweden. Almost everything was great on our cruise. We were not so lucky with the weather, so we could not stay outdoors to much. So the great SPA came in handy with it´s ... Read more

We chose the Norwegian Epic because of the great 3rd & 4th person sail free offer. This allowed us to choose a balcony suite and keep our tween-aged (13 & 10) boys in sight. The West-Med itinerary fit the Kippur-Sukkot holiday ... Read more

Norwegian is a terribly inconsistent product. I have been on 3 of their ships, with a different experience each time. The customer service has been consistently poor, however. On the Epic, as with all our cruises, we had a mini suite ... Read more

We took the Norwegian Epic out of Civitavecchia at the end of September 2016 for our honeymoon and it was great! We arrived in Civitavecchia the day before our ship left and explored the town. Not too much in Civitavecchia, but great ... Read more

We had an excellent time on the Epic. This was my second Norwegian Cruise and I was a little apprehensive because the last one we were on in January was on the Dawn which was an older boat and looked it. However, the Epic was excellent. ... Read more

This is my 4th cruise with Norwegian, 7th cruise overall so I kind of knew what to expect from the trip. That being said, we mostly booked this cruise for the itinerary and the time frame. There was only one day at sea, which suited us ... Read more

We just returned from a fantastic cruise on the Norwegian Epic! This was our first cruise and we had a blast and can't wait to do another one. There was so much to do on the ship itself and all of the crew members were so nice. They all ... Read more

We chose the Norwegian Epic as we had a very narrow window in which we could plan a cruise, and the Rome mid-week boarding option matched our dates. We have previously cruised with Royal Caribbean and Princess, and were hoping for ... Read more

We sailed Epic August 10-17, 2016 and this was our second cruise. Choose NCL because of flexible dining and beverage package. Liked the idea of not having to carry our luggage from city to city in Europe - with a cruise you can get off at ... Read more
