1st Norwegian, 1st Transatlantic! Thoroughly enjoyed this cruise. Seas were very good in my opinion, only 2 days that we could feel the ship wobbling. Even the coolest day, last day I believe, there were still sunbathers out on deck. ... Read more

Sailed as a solo traveler and enjoyed the benefit of NCL having studio cabins so I do not have to pay double occupancy. The Cruise Director assigns a staff member to host the solo travelers to help arrange dinner and show reservations. ... Read more

I chose this trip after enjoying my trans-atlantic trip with Norwegian Spirit last year but this time there were a few problems. The main one being that the Epic is too convoluted and rest areas too small for the number of passengers. ... Read more

Even if you know the history, have seen the documentaries and understand the engineering, a full passage of the Panama Canal is a MUST for any lover of history, science or travel. The senior crew members were very assessable and were ... Read more
