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

Ship is large with lots of passengers. That said, for the price, it was well worth it. We had a nice size mini-suite with tub and balcony. Also had all liquor included. Could not get that on any other ship for same price. ... Read more

We began our vacation in Rome staying at the Grand Hotel Palatino near the Colosseum. The reception people spoke good English and were very helpful. We took two tours each by Walks of Italy and City Wonders (Dark Rome) - which were ... 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

This cruise did not start very well with a few things going wrong. When we arrived at Rome Fumichino airport we were hoping to get on the curtesy bus and off to Civitavecchia port. The first disappointment was that we were told the bus ... Read more

We had the owners suite in the forward starboard side of the NCL EPIC on the 17th floor. The room was great if you don't count the disfunctional toilet and leaking shower. The view was amazing and the balcony was large. The butler was good ... Read more

Food: Terrible at many, average at best at some. Honestly some of the food we tried we could not believe someone would let this leave the kitchen. If it wasn't included with the cruise I would have demanded a refund. Never tried ... Read more

I must say, I am very surprised by the mostly negative reviews of this ship. This was my 11th cruise (3 on NCL, 4 on Royal Carib, 2 on Princess, 1 on Celebrity, 1 on Cunard); so I have been on many nice ships and many nice cruises, and I ... Read more
