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

This is our third cruise but the first try on NCL. We almost enjoyed everything on the ship: food, services, activities etc. The embarkation and disembarkation were so easy, maybe because most people choose Barcelona as the departure city ... Read more

The overall service and cleanliness of the cruise was great. All the staff were also very friendly and made the experience pleasant. Would recommend. However, Norwegian Epic could be more transparent with their added fees. We were ... Read more

Boarding the ship was fast and easy. It took about 20 min from luggage drop off to walking onto the ship. The ship is nice, clean, and very spacious. My husband and I shared a balcony room with our two kids (15&11) I was afraid that ... Read more

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

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
