We are a family of 6, mom, dad, 19, 17, 6, 3. July 24-31 BCN-BCN We had two cabins 10087 and 10088. Booked flights through NCL with one free flight included per cabin. Since we had two cabins, they actually booked flights for each cabin separately and our family was split up 3 and 3 on separate flight itineraries! I was shocked that they would do this, but when I called (on hold for an ...

Simply put, we chose this particular cruise line and itinerary because of the price. It was literally 1/2 the price of Royal Caribbean and about 1/3 less than other cruise lines, along with all of the perks (free premium beverage package, Internet minutes, etc.) and the smaller ship size. Overall, the cruise didn't live up to our expectations. We've cruised RC and Princess in the past with ...

We sailed on Norwegian Epic July3-July10 2022 the ports of call were absolutely amazing and the shore excursions were top notch! The casino staff and the staff in the bar outside Cagney's are great! That is where my praise ends, the ship is gross. We had a mini-suite and our stateroom was dirty when we arrived; unidentified substance on wall in shower. We found a shirt on floor next to bed. Day ...

We organised this cruise as a relaxing week in the sun for me and my wife, visiting a couple of new ports (for us) and a few old favourites. The pre-planning by Scotland's Cruise Centre was top notch. We flew from Edinburgh to Barcelona and jumped in a taxi to the port (39 Euros) without a hitch. The process of welcoming us on board was flawless and our luggage arrived at our stateroom within half ...

This was cancelled twice due to covid so we were excited to finally go. Second cruise on Epic, so we knew what to expect. Embarkation smooth and trouble free, food was wonderful, staff attentive and brilliant. Masks were not enforced, only when docked at Italian ports, which we fully expected. But Ship is starting to show its age a bit. Discoloured tiling and stains on pool, worn benches ...

This was my second time on the Epic and third cruise with Norwegian. Cruising is 99% back to normal, with very few COVID restrictions remaining (this took me by surprise). According to the GM at the Q&A session on May 21, we had 3000 passengers and 1500 crew onboard (about 80% capacity). He said they can’t go any higher with the current restrictions, but I am not sure what restrictions are left, ...

NCL CASH EXTRACTION

Never been with NCL before and probably won't cruise with them again. Everything they do board is about cash extraction. They charge a fee for for buying from their shops, for the pleasure of serving you. Gambling is the main feature on the ship, lots and lots of tables. Although we had a drinks package, bottled water was not included, for a litre of water $6.00 + 20% SC. There was no ...

First Time Cruiser • Age 40s

We are a Dutch family of 4 and this was our first cruise ever. For us, this holiday exceeded our expectations. First, of all, there is plenty to do for the whole family. Due to covid, we were informed that the "kids" club was still closed, but we and other passengers were lucky to have the possibility to leave them between 19.00 and 22.00 so mom and dad could have some romantic diner time. ...

Seemed good value at time and I hadn't cruised with Norwegian before. No queues etc at gatwick - brill! Smooth on time flight - brill! arrived Barcelona immigration arrivals - packed to bursting point with thousands of passengers - some from the USA - and no perceivable queue movement. Hot, stuffy, no toilets or water. After realisation that more staff an better organisation required some more ...
