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 ...
It has been six year's since my last cruise.
This was with royal caribbean.
I found this cruise basically half the price as royal caribbean, due to single, no supplement studio cabin's.
I was also pleased to receive the ultimate ...
We chose this cruise because it fit our time availability & we liked the ports to be visited. This was a highschool graduation trip (plus a few nights in Rome). We were not impressed with Free Style Dining. The staff seemed ...
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 ...

Our seven-day Western Mediterranean cruise aboard NCL Epic was simply wonderful! It was relatively easy to embark and disembark. We sailed on July 27 to August 3. We booked excursions In Livorno (Florence and Pisa), Naples (Pompeii, ...
our family of 4 (2 adults 2 kids aged 10 and 9) chose NCL's Epic for our first cruise ever. The choice was between Royal Caribbean's Harmony of the Seas and Norwegian Epic. Dates, price and cabin availability determined our choice and I ...
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
First time cruise with our 12 and 16 year olds. Stayed 2 nights in Rome first then caught the train from Termini to Civitavecchia . Boarding was quick and easy as the majority of passengers board at Barcelona and we were on board and ...
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 ...
This was our first time cruising. Family of five from Canada. After I booked the cruise, I started reading the reviews and was a bit put off by some. However, I have to say that some people complain for the sake of complaining. We found ...
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 ...
Below is my honest review and my top tips - I consider myself to be a well seasoned traveller and have done everything from budget to uber luxurious. My big take away / message for anyone is to make sure this type of cruise is for you. ...
My husband, a friend and I sailed on the June 15, 2016 Western Mediterrean sailing on the NCL Epic. We stayed in a Mini-Suite room number 10258.
Here are my thoughts about our cruise.
-Lots of ...
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 ...
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 ...
I'm not a cruise lover so take that into consideration with my 3 Things I really liked:
Kids Splash Academy. My 8 year old loved it! I saw a few parents I thought took advantage. I saw a little girl with a disability who was there ALL ...
We took a 7 day Mediterranean cruise the Epic and for the most part enjoyed the experience.
We knew beforehand that it was slightly different to our previous cruise experiences, however we only found a couple of things not to our liking ...
Chose this cruise because it was leaving Rome at a time we wanted to cruise. It was our 20th Anniversary , and the cruise was a surprise for my wife. We have always cruised an Carnival and did note the the people on this cruise were ...
My husband and I were looking for a reasonably-priced getaway and got a great deal on this NCL Epic Med Cruise. The ship was beautiful and despite the fact that it was sold out, we never felt crowded or waited for anything. Restaurants ...
we spent three days in rome before our departure. highly recommend this plan as the ship is over an hour from rome.
we arrived for embarkation around 2, well after the crowds. it was an easy walk on since luggage was left at the ...
I took my granddaughter to Italy to celebrate her graduation from college. This was the most miserable travel experience I have ever had.
The food was average, the entertainment which you had to make a reservation in order to attend ...
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 ...
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 ...
The staff was rude, the food was mediocre at best (specialty restaurant's were good...for an additional $35). The entertainment was not entertaining, The VAT Tax was unexpected and no where on the per cruise information did NCL say they ...
