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

Just to clear the air, I have cruised now 5 times, once on Royal Caribbean, once on Princess, twice on Carnival and now NCL so I do have a bit of experience. First of all, this was our Honeymoon as my wife and I were married just 2 ... Read more

This Epic cruise has epic entertainment. The Beatles were fantastic: they looked and sounded just like the originals! Soul Satisfaction, Legends in Concert and FourEver were terrific: great voices and stage presence. Cirque Dreams and ... 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

Let me start this review by saying Norwegian used to be my absolute favorite cruise line. Now however, they are simply just like the majority of others. They seem to be very focused on making as much money as they can, even if it means ... Read more

Good: nice staff for the most part, great fitness center, decent food. Bad: I felt like our ship had a lot of amenites but we were charged for nearly all of them. If you didn't get the drink package the prices per drink we an absolute ... Read more

OK – let me start with a full disclosure. My family has taken 6 Disney cruises and loved every one of them. We only took Norwegian because we wanted to begin our summer vacation with the convenience of a cruise while we visited ... Read more

We have never sailed before and never been to Europe so this was quite a different trip for us. We flew into Rome on Sun 6/7/15 and stayed at Marriott Boscolo Exedra in Piazza della Republicca, until Wed morning. Great location and nice ... Read more

First of all, I traveled with my 2 daughters, ages 14 and 15, and we stayed in the Haven in a 2 bd/2 bath suite. This was a pretty big upgrade but worth every penny. This ship is big and crowded, so having a separate pool, sunning area, ... Read more

This was our second cruise on Norwegian, and likely our last. We chose the Epic for a trip with my partner's mom mainly because of the excellent value of the Haven Family suite compared to getting two balcony cabins for only 3 people. We ... Read more

I took the Mediterranean cruise. There was no one at the harbor , no shuttle to the ship and I walked, and walked, and walked through the harbor! Thank God for the excursions everyday to get off that ship! I was so claustrophobic, it ... Read more

Just returned from the May 20th, Rome (Civitavecchia) embarkation of the Western Mediterranean, with a return to Rome (Civitavecchia) on May 27th. Pros: Found embarkation quick and simple. Maybe only 10% to 15% of the cruisers get ... Read more

Ok, get ready, because this review is going to be a long one. Just got back from a European cruise on the Norwegian Epic, and I have lots to say... This ship is, without a doubt, the worst ship I've ever been on. This was my 18th ... Read more

Okay, I am not a "cruiser" as many of you are. This was only my 4th cruise. I prefer land based accommodations. I was on a month long vacation to Italy. Three weeks visiting Venice, Florence, Rome and then this week long cruise. ... Read more

This was our first, and probably last, cruise on Norwegian. I loved the ship, but could not put up with the cabin again. I know that it's the only ship in the fleet with this configuration, but who on earth thought it was a good ... Read more

This was my fourth cruise -- my second (and last) on Norwegian, and my husband's first cruise. We embarked/debarked in Rome/Civitavecchia. We have fun anywhere we go, so we had a great time despite being on the EPIC, but this was not the ... Read more

I was a solo traveller and was very impressed by the organisation, friendliness and efficiency of the NCL staff. From embarkation to the final day, the fun, food and freedom were excellent throughout. The dining rooms served delicious ... Read more
