A Dissapointment of Epic Proportions

Review for Norwegian Epic to Caribbean - Western

First Time Cruiser • Age 30s

Having cruised before a few times on a couple other lines, I was hopeful that my first taste of 'cruising like a Norwegian' would be a really fun experience... I am sad to say that it was quite the disappointment. I took my parents with me as a birthday present. (my mum was turning 56 on Jan 20th and my father 53 on Jan 21st) Having considered RCCL as usual, I checked dates for what was ...

This was out 81st cruise (12/14 Norwegian Epic sailing) and we did not have very high expectations. This was not the most luxurious cruise we have ever taken but one of the most satisfying. The crew is the friendliest and most helpful we have encountered including those on upper scale lines like Crystal, Celebrity, Holland, Radisson etc.etc. We had a handicapped balcony cabin at the rear of deck ...

Worst Cruise EVER

Wanted to try a larger ship. I've been on 20+ and this was the worst. Starting with the Terrible room layout when you walk in the room the toilet is in a small area on the left shielded by a frosted door and the shower is on the other side of the entry...the sink was actually in the main cabin at the foot of the bed. So you go to the bathroom and then walk to the main area to wash your hands or ...

EPIC---The Ship, Not Our Experience---Our First NCL Cruise

Will try to be objective and make this concise. First, we are seasoned, middle aged cruisers w/ 20+ cruises logged on RCCL, Celebrity, Carnival and Princess. We had heard mixed reviews about NCL but got a good deal on a balcony cabin ($649) and thought we'd give the line a try. First the Pros: *Cabin 8200 on the 8th floor aft had ample storage and comfortable bedding. Each guest has a reading ...

The NCL Epic is very new and clean--nothing is tired or needs updating. There are lots of options for dining and activities but most of them were not really memorable. Most things were just okay and sometimes "good" so first-time cruisers might not even notice. Here is my review: Getting on board the ship was very quick and easy and room was ready at 1 pm. In-cabin sink did not bother us at ...

For a family of 4, Norwegian Epic was a blast! We booked a balcony room and inside cabin for our girls (13 & 15)... The bathrooms are small on every cruise we have been on so our NCL cruise consultant recommended 2 room (plus we actually saved $$$). Rooms were clean and our room steward was amazing! We chose to eat in the main dinning rooms. We were never disappointed. Our youngest daughter is a ...

We are a couple - almost retired from the NY area. We have been on about 15-20 cruises with most of the popular lines. I am writing this mostly from my perspective (even though my wife pretty much agrees with me).We flew into Ft Lauderdale and took the NCL shuttle bus to the Miami port. All went smoothly and embarkation was a breeze. The easiest of any cruise. As expected, the rooms were to be ...

I'm back from another great cruise. We were on the 4/2 sailing. A bit of background for you guys. This was my 17th cruise. I've sailed all the major cruise lines RCL, NCL, Carnival, Princess, HAL, MSC and Celebrity. I sailed with my four other family members ranging in age from four to 74. So if you want comparisons between the lines just ask.Overall impressions: I really enjoyed my cruise on the ...

The ship is clean, big goes without saying, it is new and very forward thinking in design. Great staff all very outgoing and friendly and willing to take care of your needs . Ship so big and very difficult to find your way , yes the carpet is color coded and so are the elevators, great but no outside cue's to help guide you. No outside promanade deck ,a short jogging track , you batteled ...

A Quick Epic Review

This is a quick review of our Epic cruise. This was our first NCL cruise. We are fans of both Princess and Royal Caribbean, but we were very interested in seeing the Epic, so we opted to give NCL a try. Because of reading so many mixed reviews, my expectations for NCL were not very high, so I was very pleasantly surprised that I liked it so well. Loved the freestyle dining concept. This ...
