Review for Norwegian Epic to Transatlantic

User Avatar

My friend Jim and I enjoyed the Epic's December Transatlantic voyage from Lisbon to Manhattan. Here are some of my thoughts: The Good: We stayed at a terrific, boutique 22-room hotel in Lisbon called the Sao Vicente Alfama before embarking; Uber worked well to get us around the hilly Alfama neighborhood and to the Port; Our mini-suites(11249 and 11253)were comfortable and our cabin ...

The staff are amazing; however, the cabin design (bathrooms) are very uncomfortable.

The Epic is a very nice ship. The staff are amazing- ALL staff were excellent!! The food is very good Entertainment is excellent; especially the Howl at the Moon Dueling pianos ( JD, Sarah and Justin) BEST Ever!!! The Beatles Epic band was very good, but the shows were held in the Cavern Club. We arrived 1 hour before showtime and got the last 2 seats! There were at least 100 ...

Norwegian Falling Behind With Its Standards

Review for Norwegian Epic to Transatlantic

I have cruised with Norwegian 10s of times of the years and I get the feeling they are either failing as a cruise line or have become stagnant. There was nothing exciting about this recent voyage, the food menu and the entertainment hasn't changed for years. The ships looking old and tired, many patched up carpets and a lot of rust, its almost like they are not keeping on top of the ...

Review for Norwegian Epic to Transatlantic

This was my second NCL cruise, my first being on the Getaway last November. I tended to find myself comparing the full cruise with the one last year, so I might as well do that in this review where relevant. Embarkation: This was fine - we flew from Heathrow on an early morning flight, and just about managed to survive the taxi transfer to the cruise terminal by the time embarkation was ...

Review for Norwegian Sun to Europe - British Isles & Western

Between the two of us, my husband and I have been on 8 cruises, with various lines (Carnival, MSC, Norwegian, Princess and Royal Caribbean), so we generally know what to expect on a cruise. What we didn't anticipate when we booked an early December (2022) ten day Cruise on NCL from Lisbon Portugal to the Canary Islands, Gibraltar, Spain and back to Lisbon was to be on a floating nursing home. The ...

Review for Norwegian Sun to Canary Islands

The Norwegian Sun is a lovely fairly small ship with a maximum capacity of 1,936 passengers but it seemed really spacious as it was just 80% full. It was built in 2001 but refitted in 2018, so looked like new (after a 2 year pause for COVID). Embarkation in Lisbon was very easy and the 8 day cruise finished at Málaga having visited Madeira and various Canary Islands. In November 2022, ...

Review for Carnival Pride to Transatlantic

User Avatar
6-10 Cruises • Age 70s

This was a repositioning cruise of 13 days from Lisbon to Tampa. We chose it as a potentially relaxing way to return to the USA after several weeks touring Portugal. Our Ocean Suite was large and the cabin staff kept it very clean. However, the Pride is an old ship, and the cabinet doors and drawer fronts were sagging and squeaky. We hesitated to open the closet door for fear of disturbing the ...

Review for MSC Preziosa to Europe - Western Mediterranean

User Avatar

Embarkation was quick and smooth. The Preziosa is a beautifull ship with a good layout. We were cruising in an Aurea suite which includes the ‘Easy’ drinking package, massage and spa access. Overall food quality is below average, in the buffet hot food is just warm. If you’re looking for Nutella or something alike they refer to the shop where you can buy(!) it. Never heard that one before. At ...

Review for Crystal Serenity to Transatlantic

User Avatar
10+ Cruises • Age 60s

We just returned from another fabulous Crystal transatlantic crossing (our 5th) on Crystal Serenity. Crystal seems to just get better every year and a transatlantic crossing is the best way to take advantage of all the ship (and the cruiseline) has to offer. With only about 800 people on a good-sized ship, the ship is small enough to seem intimate, but large enough to have multiple activities ...

Review for Crystal Serenity to Mediterranean

As a couple we invited a family member to travel with us and Crystal Cruises offered us the trifecta: upscale cruise ship, fabulous itinerary and a single cabin supplement for our family member. We have cruised on HAL, Celebrity & Oceana and were not overly fond of the first two and felt that Oceana was an upgrade, but with something still missing. Based on the requirements (premium dining, ...
