My husband and I have been on several cruises with Celebrity and a few with RCCL. This was our first cruise with NCL. The reason we chose the Epic was honestly the price. After reading so many negative reviews, we weren’t sure ... Read more

My husband and I sailed on the Epic for our honeymoon. Overall we had a good time, but I have to say we will never sail on Norwegian again. This was our second time on NCL, and I was very disappointed. The top disappointment was that the ... Read more

It was our 9th NCL cruise and our first in the Haven. All the best of what has been reported about the Haven is true. It was wonderful, a nice quiet island in the midst of 4000 people going every which way. The Epic was far better than the ... Read more

Although it was called "Rome to Rome", it was obviously "Barcelona to Barcelona." We began with the NCL land tour which was farmed out to a local third-party group. We saw more on private local tours on our own than ... Read more

I'm not sure what we expected, but this cruise was too crowded for us to enjoy it. We were in the Haven, which was the only area we could tolerate. The rest of the ship was crowded and loud and absolutely chaotic. They nickel and dime ... Read more

This was our 11th cruise but first NCL. Overall cruise was excellent and exceeded our expectations. I think people are being very unfair to rate it as low as it is. Embarking in Rome is likely the best idea seeing only about 700 people get ... Read more

I am not sure where to start, everything about the boat was a huge disappointment. The workers on the ship HATED their jobs. Only a handful would greet us back or smile. In the narrow hallways the employees would walk fast by the guest, ... Read more
