It has been 25 years since we cruised on Norwegian, but this was a special cruise for our 40th wedding anniversary. (We are platinum members on Carnival.) Ship was very elegant, but layout was difficult to grasp. Food was different but ... Read more

The Good: 1. Embarkation and disembarkation were a breeze. We did not bring a lot of luggage, therefore the easy walk off was a great option. We were out on the pier in Southampton within 15 minutes of the clearance for ... Read more

This was our first time on a "Big ship" so we reserved at first when we were considering this cruise but we pick the location not the ship when booking. With that said we read how big ships are like small cities making it ... Read more

Needed a way to get to Europe without flying. Was familiar with Getaway. Like the layout of the ship. Courteous staff. Spa was great. Food was pretty good. Howl at the Moon was terrific as was Million Dollar Quartet and Burn the ... Read more

Firstly, we chose this cruise mainly for rest and "landed" in the UK without the dreaded jetlag! We stayed in the Westin, very close to the port pre-cruise and had a complimentary van transfer which took less than 5 minutes...$20 ... Read more

This was one of our choices for choice of cruise to spend our honeymoon and we are very happy that we did. The ship as itself is beautiful and had just been refurbished. The staff work extremely hard to keep the whole ship extremely clean ... Read more

Average experience. Our reason for choosing was Tampa departure, drink package and gratuities included with our mini-suite selection. The martini bar was very well staffed but nothing special. Celebrity has ice bars. The cigar lounge was ... Read more

We have cruised with a number of lines including NCL before and took this trip partly due to the good deal, (as it was a repositioning trip for the ship to travel to Europe), and partly as we quite like the transatlantic crossings with ... Read more

It has been a long time since we did a long cruise (this one was 14 nights). Overall the cruise was good but we can see where cost cutting has changed the feel of this company's ships. We has a BD class of cabin with a balcony. The cabin ... Read more

I've been on several NCL cruises now as I am Platinum Plus. (You may know they just revamped their Latitudes awards program) So, obviously, I LUV NCL and it's people! This was my third crossing as well. This was a TA from Port Canaveral ... Read more

Overall was a very pleasant Transatlantic crossing. Although there are some negatives to the Epic, the overall ship experience was positive. The weather was good during the cruise and port visits. The selection of ports was excellent. ... 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

My wife and I are veteran cruisers. We have been cruising since 1984. We have been on many different lines and many different sizes of ships. We have been on mega ships before, such as the Dream, which has about 50% more cruisers than ... 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

Wanted to try a TA cruise and so happy I chose this one. Met a great group of people. Balcony cabin was a nice size with more than enough storage space. Just wish the sink was bigger. Service was great. Food good. Like I said, no ... Read more

The Epic is a very large ship with a cozy feeling. The cabin was a family balcony with bed next to the balcony. The size is a little strange and bathroom unusual. This was the only thing we did not care for. The toilets lack of privacy. We ... Read more

This was my first transatlantic and it was chosen quickly by a travel mate because it leaves from Port Canaveral. Unfortunately for us Norweign continued to lower the price until the cruise was overcrowded. The automatic tips and ... Read more
