The itinerary. We wanted to visit Rome and Florance. We found the cabin staff to be very pleasant polite and very good at their job. But in many of the other areas such as bars and restaurants they seemed disinterested. The waiting times at the bar could be up to ten minutes,staffing levels seemed to be an issue. On one occasion I asked for a slice of lemon in my drink and was told by the bar man ...

We booked an aft cabin and the view and experience added greatly to the our enjoyment of the ship. Most importantly, take some time to plan you port excursions and learn about the vessel. You should know all about the Epic - before - you get on board. There is so much to do and see you should take the time to plan. I would say I gave the planning phase about 20 hours before we boarded. It ...

We are a family of 3,husband,13 year old daughter and myself.We have previously only sailed RCCL,twice on Freedom,3 times Oasis and once on Allure( all in Caribbean).We loved all or RCCL cruises but decided to try NCL for a change. We also needed a European cruise as my husband has had a knee replacement so needed a short haul flight. Embarkation at Rome was a breeze,straight from the ...

Crowded, Poor Food quality-Western Med Cruise

I chose this cruise for the ports which were mostly good. However, there was nothing memorable about this ship! The food was of poor quality and not completely accurate in the description (fish, desserts) on the menus. I had food poisoning after eating at one of the buffets. When I called to see a nurse/doctor, the infirmary was closed while at port. The shows and entertainment were mediocre at ...

I have taken about 15 cruises in my life and this was my first with NCL. The ship itself is very nice. Tons of dining, bar and seating options throughout. The rooms were small as to be expected but it was nice to have a separate area for the shower and another for the toilet and a 3rd for the sink. Plenty of nooks and cranny's to put your belongings in as well. (Tip, choose a room in the middle of ...

Having to pay over $200 for Wi-Fi that does not work is just not right. And I mean "99% DOES NOT WORK". You try and log in and you get “The Proxy server isn’t responding”, and if you get logged in the time to load a page is forever. When I talked to the IT person he was rude and said: "Oh, yes it is normal for a web page to take 5 minutes to load, and I don't do phones, only internet." The 2nd ...

Not worth it!

The good: Great, comfortable, roomy cabin. Destinations and times in each port. Service at reception was good. The bad: The ship was way too crowded. Most people had no manners and would not respect waiting in the line to get food (example the Garden Cafe). I would have expected a little bit more class from people. Good luck using the elevators. You are better off getting a work ...

I've just returned yesterday from my first ever cruise vacation, which was on the Norwegian Epic around the Western Mediterranean. And what a great experience it has been! Amazing ship, very friendly staff, nice atmosphere, lots of dining options.... it was truly a fantastic holiday. Let me tell you why: After getting to the port in Marseille, the check-in process on board was surprisingly ...

Took my family of four ( two girls ages 18 and 19) on a seven day cruise, leaving from Marseilles. The Epic is certainly a beautiful and impressive ship...but I digress. Arrived at the Marseilles airport after a week in Paris. Just a twenty minute taxi ride to the port, and the ride was only about 42 Euro - not the 240 dollars that the cruise line would charge us for a transfer. It was very easy ...
