We wanted to see the new locks of the Panama Canal and get a respite from the cold of the northwest. Our travel agent offered an exceptional value for our cruise. We enjoyed our mid ships mini suite very much and our cabin steward was a ... Read more

We wanted to travel through the Panama Canal. The consultant that talked to us as we were going through was excellent. We liked the fact that we could view from the big screen in the Atrium, go outside on the 12-14th floors, as well as the ... Read more

Our embarkation in Miami was very easy and well organized. Check-in was quite smooth with minimal fuss. Once on board, we were able to visit the buffet for a light lunch while we waited for the call that staterooms were ready, which ... Read more

We had been looking for a Panama Canal transit cruise for some time and this cruise seemed like a good fit with the various ports of call and ending in Seattle (it was actually a 17 day cruise not a 14 day). We had sailed on NCL many years ... Read more

For the first time ever, we decided to go "all the way to the top" and booked a Haven cabin. With our own pool, hot tub, sauna, butler(s), room steward, concierge, exercise area, shower/changing area, eating area, and upper sun ... Read more

Reviews from other family and friends had told us that this was one of the best cruise ships. And my husband found it to be very nice so much so we are sorry that we did not take advantage of the promotion where you pay $250. and Norwegian ... Read more

Chose the 3 back to back cruises that go from Rio to San Francisco. Beaches, penguins, Falkland Islands, Cape Horn, Chan Chan, and the list goes on. Best way to see these, and each was great. Would forgo the start in Rio, but definitely ... Read more

I read a lot of reviews with pros and cons about big ships, and then appeared the Harmony with a TA by Nov 2016, but when a couple of weeks later decided to take it, no insides were left, so the bottom price was about $ 2,000. Too much ... Read more

We chose this cruise as it was repositioning across the Atlantic to Barcelona 1/4-14/4/17. When we arrived at Port Canaveral to embark it was chaotic with porters running round like headless chickens. There were badly organised queues ... Read more

As a solo traveler, Atlantic crossings with NCL have always been my favourites and this crossing was no exception. NCL make it so easy for solo travelers to make new friends aboard. The Norwegian Epic is not my favourite NCL ship with its ... Read more

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

We picked the cruise based on price which was great and included prepaid gratuities. Embarkations went smoothly. Cabins weren't ready until almost 3:00. Disembarkation in Barcelona was long. There were 3 customs agents handling 4000 ... Read more

This was my fourth cruise on the Epic. It must be my favorite NCL ship. As a solo traveler, I appreciate the studio cabins and the warm welcome by all of the staff. I was concerned the service with an unlimited beverage package might be ... Read more

This is a Haven Experience.....I'm sold. Don't let bad cruise reviews scare you off from cruising on the EPIC. This was a re-positioning cruise. Too crowded I didn't find it. Waiting in line for food at the buffet,, they have several ... 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

This ship is just not comfortable. Firstly our outside cabin was very small and required the double bed to be separated to have any room at all. Also there was no comfortable lounge in the cabin as there usually is, instead there was a ... Read more
