First, anyone thinking about this cruise should know that this cruise embarks/disembarks at both Barcelona and Civitavecchia (Rome). About 3/4 of the passengers use Barcelona and the remainder use Civitavecchia. I would recommend staying ... Read more

Overall a great experience, best of all was the Epic Beatles, and all the entertainment onboard. Make sure you do not miss the shows. The only con about the vessel I found is that I had to change my dining habits or I'd miss the ... Read more

Here is my breakdown: We embarked in Rome (there is an embarkation in Barcelona as well). The Rome port (we were told) gets less travelers than Barcelona. Getting on and off the ship in Rome was EASY EASY EASY! No lines. But we ... Read more

The itinerary was amazing, with quality stops - not unknown 'filler' stops along the way. It was an active pace! The ship had so many offerings of things to do while onboard. We enjoyed all the entertainment and games (and our 23-year ... Read more

First we got a great deal. But also we really enjoy Norwegian. Enjoy the "freestyle" environment. Part of that is eating on your own schedule, sitting where you want to. And no formal night; unless you want to. Staff were ... Read more
