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

This was our first cruise - we normally do four-star all-inclusives, but felt we were getting a bit lazy Boat: The boat is huge - but it doesn't take long to get orientated - everything is located by Floor and fore/aft/middle ... Read more

We selected this cruise because the timing worked well with our plan to be in Rome for a week prior to sailing. We booked the Haven Level in 9/15, and it was one of the BEST vacation decisions we have ever made. Priority check-in, and ... Read more

We just returned from our great cruise on the Epic! The ship is massive and beautiful! The layout is logical. The staterooms are modern and well-planned, although not huge. The crew is very friendly and helpful! Our steward was very ... Read more

Had another wonderful cruise with NCL, great places to visit, good food and entertainment. NCL are very informal but can get rather noisy at times and there are not always enough loungers available on days at sea. However, I feel I must ... Read more

With one minor, yet considerable, drawback this was a great experience! So let's get rid of the bad news first. Whether it was because we are at Gold Latitudes level, or just plain luck, we got speedy prime location in the dining rooms ... Read more

We chose this cruise because it started and ended in Rome, visited ports that we wanted to see on our first Mediterranean cruise, and had good dates and a good price. NCL is not our top choice as a cruise line since we are not much into ... Read more

This was our first time on NCL, and sadly, is definately our last. It is the first cruise out of six that I was happy to see the end of the cruise. The embarkation and debarkation was much faster than we were used to. Also, the UBP ... Read more

We were a group of seven retired relatives and chose the Epic for our cruise. Of course, we had the UBP and all were excited about the journey. My wife and I had cruised more than eight weeks on other lines so one can say we are not ... Read more

This was our fourth cruise, all with NCL. Our reasons are good value and freestyle dining. The third passenger in our suite, our adult son, sailed for no fare, except taxes and fees. Embarkation in Civitavecchia was a breeze, as the great ... Read more
