My husband and I booked this cruise for our 35th wedding anniversary. My husband had been on a cruise many years ago and enjoyed it, but I had been skeptical due to food poisoning reports on other ships and I wasn't sure if I would get sea ... Read more

We chose this through Diamond Resorts (Timeshare). We have previously cruised with P&O a few times. We found the entertainment about the best we've seen onboard and, whilst still very good, we found things not as good as our ... Read more

This was my first time traveling with Norwegian, and first time ever in Europe with one of my best friends. I had only ever traveled with Carnival before, so I was very impressed with the interior of the ship and it's overall size; much ... Read more

We sailed out of Barcelona on NCL Epic 7/23 for 7 nites. We were in cabin 11103, same weird bathroom design etc. Tons of storage, bed a bit too short, nice bigger balcony. My sis stayed in the solo cabin and it was awesome. I ... Read more

Being the first time we had tried a cruise we were delighted with the Epic and the whole experience. Balcony cabin had ample storage space and cannot fault the cleanliness of it and the whole ship. Had previously read about the small ... Read more

As a travelling group of 9 people, with the ages from 19-78, we had to choose a cruise worked for everyone. The Epic is a big ship but never felt over crowded. One person was a single traveller and had never cruised before. We chose the ... Read more

Grandson chose this ship because of the waterslides, as good a reason as any! He was right, excellent facilities for children of all ages. If so inclined parents could "dump" their children in Kids Club from 9/10am to 1.30am next ... Read more

We cruised the Mediterranean in mid July and were very happy with our experience. The staff was incredible, the food was amazing, and the entertainment was top notch. We were on the Epic and even though it's large it did not feel crowded. ... Read more

I chose this cruise first of all because of the solo cabins. I thought that the port of call excursions (all researched and set up by myself, and not through the ship) would be the focal point of my vacation, and I would treat the cruise ... Read more

We chose the Norwegian Epic because it made more sense for us. The ship looked nice and the destinations were awesome. In this case if you only care about the destinations and not the ship. You're on the right ship.... The level of ... Read more

What an amazing time me and my husband had. Embankment was so easy in Barcelona, we were on the ship and eating lunch in the Garden Cafe by 11:40am. Food in the buffet was brilliant, such a variety of different dishes and the cakes were ... Read more

Love this cruise and hope to do it again. I selected this cruise for the itinerary. Plenty to do in every port. Upon boarding I was surprised by the condition of my cabin. I shared an inside cabin and thought it may be clustrophobic, but I ... Read more

We chose this cruise because of the nice assortment of port stops in the itinerary. We were pleasantly surprised by several things about the ship. First, the cabin was, while not roomy, very comfortable and ingeniously laid out. It took a ... Read more

Other peoples reviews are accurate. The ship is very good with a wide range of facilities, but it is the crew which make the experience excellent and cope with 4000 passengers very well. Embarkation was a bit slow as most passengers did ... Read more

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

Our son and family chose Epic because it fit their summer schedule and offered for us to join then, which we did. We have cruised 9 times previously and never experienced anywhere near these problems. Our Stateroom required four ... 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

We chose this cruise because it was an easy way to travel around Europe and not have to pack/unpack, etc. We saw A LOT! We spent 5 days in Rome first, then boarded the ship there (you can board in either Rome OR Barcelona). We arrived at ... Read more

Sailed from Civitiveccia on 6/28 for a 7 night Western Med Cruise. Embarkation was smooth and our luggage was delivered real quick! As many have commented the cabin layout is not the best, but I will say that there really is plenty of ... 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

This was our first cruise so I don't have anything to compare it to. Reviews are always interesting because they are so dependent on each person's unique experience and expectations. My review will be based around reality and expectation. ... Read more

We embarked in Barcelona and it could not have been easier. Very efficient and well run port. We got to the port about 11 and in our cabin before noon. They said they may not be ready but we could leave our bags in the cabin, but the ... Read more

I just returned from my first cruise. My sister and I are in our 50's and traveled together on the Epic for a 7 day Mediterranean cruise. The Ship is huge, but surprisingly, we were able to find plenty of nooks and out of the way places ... Read more
