After being on the Epic in February I swore that I would never go onto another Norwegian Cruise again. However friends told me that they had experienced great cruises with Norwegian. When I discovered this cruise in early October with its ... Read more

Doing a Transatlantic cruise has been on the bucket list..... when we discovered a great deal on the Epic; we decided to go for it. With 10 days at sea, we got to explore the ship a lot (and saw LOTS of flying fish from our balcony). ... Read more

This was our 8th cruise in 6 years all with NCL, most out of NYC, where we live. We had always wanted to make a transatlantic crossing and to visit Barcelona. We arrived a few days early to spend some time in the city, which exceeded ... Read more

We took our second Transatlantic cruise having taken our first in September 2015. Embarkation at Barcelona. Very good and a lesson in how to throughput 4,100 travellers quickly. Our luggage was even at our stateroom before we were! ... Read more

Embarkation went pretty smoothly and they managed the crowds pretty well. It obviously takes a while to load such a large ship, so I was prepared for a longer line and pleasantly surprised how quickly things moved. Disembarkation in ... Read more

The Jade and its moderate size was perfect for the ocean crossing. Embarkation on Barcelona was smooth but with long lines, taking almost an hour. The ship itself has a good flow plan and offers good food in all its restaurants, ... Read more

We choose this cruise for the great price and the ports of call. The Jade was ok but due for much needed updating. Our cabin 11593 was extremely small even for an inside cabin. We had the special dining package. Cagney's Steakhouse was ... Read more

Excellent way to get from Europe to Florida for not much more than the cost of an airfare! Free Drinks package & 6 upgrade restaurants inc in our deal made it a no -brainer. All staff were great, cabin small but well kept. All ... Read more

This was our first Transatlantic cruise and our first time on the Epic. We decided on this cruise to get away from all the hustle and bustle (both electronic and non electronic) of life. All of our previous cruises have been stacked with ... Read more

The best part of the Cruise was the smooth sailing and beautiful weather. As others have posted the rooms are chopped up (I had a beautiful interior room)but would have been crowded for 2, and I did not care for the layout of the ship. 3 ... Read more

We did this same cruise 3 years ago and had a great time. We live in NH and the Boston departure port was excellent (no flying to departure port), and what can be wrong about New Orleans. Although we had visited a number of the Islands ... Read more

This was my 8th cruise with NCL and 4th on the Dawn. I chose the re-positioning cruise because I went in April 2015 and enjoyed the length of time and the amount of stops. I have only cruised with NCL so can't compare to any other cruise ... Read more

I was a big time lover of NCL before this cruise. The crew for the most part didn't seem happy to be there. Majority of the crew would walk by without smiling or saying hello. When we were on the Star everyone was happy and everyone said ... Read more

The cruise was 14 days starting in Boston and ending in New Orleans. The dining was good for the most part. The cooks at Teppanyaki were not really as good as we have experienced in the past. We went twice and had the same experience ... Read more

This was our 6th cruise on the Dawn. Living inland Massachusetts it makes for an easy ride to the port. Most of the changes done at the dry dock were favorable. The Theater is nice with new colors. O'Sheehans has taken over the entire ... Read more
