Went with a single's group and had a great time on the Epic. I've been on the sister ship, the Getaway, and liked the Epic much better. The staff/waiters/bartenders were much friendlier, the bars were cooler and the atmosphere was more ... Read more

I originally wanted to do a Baltic itinerary because I wanted something I hadn't done before, wanted to make sure work couldn't follow me, and I wanted a non-beach itinerary as I don't do beaches. History and art and culture sounded like a ... Read more

Choose the cruise because it had some single people going. Room was OK, but the studio lounge was not inviting at all. I did enjoy the freedom to dine when and where I wanted to. Breakfast buffet was very annoying by the 3rd day. Totally ... Read more

I chose this cruise because we had gone on it last October and loved it. We had the kids last time (8,10,12) and they were a little bored around the pool. It is more of an adult pool. However we booked the Owners suite and it was even ... Read more

Another great trip with the Epic, first time as a solo guest in the studios. Studios are great, small but everything you need for a single guest. Staff was friendly and going the extra mile, as always nothing to complain about the staff on ... Read more

I really don't know why people give a bad review about this ship. It feels moving? Yes, for Christ,  it's a ship,  it suppose  to move. Are the elevators crowded?  Honestly,  I  only had problems with it ... Read more

This was my first cruise. I had a great time. Nothing like waking up and looking at the ocean out your balcony. Food was awesome and plentiful. Perfect portions I would say and if too small for you you can always get another. =) I did the ... Read more

My wife and I cruise a lot with more than 20 cruises under our belt. For no particular reason, we had never cruised on NCL before. We had the opportunity to sail on the Escape as part of a travel agent conference we attended. It proved to ... Read more

SUMMARY: This was a wkend getaway for me and my sister in law. The embarkation was smooth and hardly any line. The disembarkation was organized as well. There was a line in customs but that has nothing to do with the ship. That is the Port ... Read more

We chose this cruise for 1)the Gem because its smaller than the Breakaway 2) leaves from NY and 3) it was a new itinerary for us. Being in the Haven is always the best and this was no different. All the shows were new and we especially ... Read more

First impressions - really liked the ship. It was not too big and impersonal. Public areas nice ambience. The cabin was nicely furnished and the bed was comfortable. Plenty of cupboard space. It was our second time on NCL and we were ... Read more

This was my 9th cruise and the 4th for NCL and also my first solo cruise. I live in Upstate NY so I had a 35 minute ride to the pier, dropped off by a friend so I did not have to use the parking lot which is so expensive. I arrived at the ... Read more

When boarding this ship, I was amazed at how beautiful it was. My cabin was cozy and the bathroom was much larger than what I'm use to. However, I was disappointed to learn the ship was more over crowded than I hoped... and that is coming ... Read more

I have been cruising with NCL since 1995 ( 16 Cruises to date ). I really like the laid back atmosphere of the cruises. I like the ability to eat when you want and freedom to do whatever. The NY port is convenient for parking at the ... Read more

I have been looking at the Epic for about a year because of the single occupancy studio rooms. Sometimes I want to cruise but don't have anyone to go with, so when I arrived in Port Canaveral to take my Carnival Aruba cruise for the third ... Read more

This was only our third cruse, the first two being on RCL. We are 58 & 62 yers old. Our extended family booked Epic for a small reunion during March 2017. Since it was the dreaded spring break window, we were a little concerned with ... Read more

Norwegian Sky was a perfect choice for my bachelorette. I looked at many reviews of cruises before booking this one and I am so happy with my choice. The main reason I went with Norwegian Sky is the open bar. This cruise is amazing for ... Read more

Not a bad deal for a spur of the moment decision. Our room ended up in the rear of the ship which was great. The balcony was a bit more private than the ones on the sides of the ship. Although we have done the Bahamas' thing too many ... Read more
