We had a great time on the Norwegian Epic. We boarded in Barcelona, where it was a bit hectic to start but we soon got through the queues and onto the ship by about 11.30am. Our room was ready by about 1.30 so plenty of time to explore ... Read more

We have travelled on the Epic before and as adults would not be our first choice, but as we took our grandchildren (their fifth cruise with us) the ship has much to offer. For first time travellers there is little to complain about as ... Read more

We spent a day in Barecelona before getting on the ship and would recommend a couple of days before the cruise to explore the city. Embarkation was smooth. Our room wasn't ready yet so we started exploring - organized the splash academy ... Read more

My wife and I celebrated our 25th anniversary with this cruise - the second one we've taken. I read a lot of the reviews of the Epic before posting mine and while I echo many of the sentiments of others, some are simply way off. We ... Read more

We chose this cruise mainly for the port of calls, activities, and free style cruising. The ship was quite crowded especially for the day at sea. My son tried to go bowling 3 times and never was able to due to crowds. Food was very ... Read more

Firstly the booking and pre-visit information was good, everything we needed to know was available prior to boarding. Checking in ready to board was a nightmare, they had 3 sets of desks open and still we were waiting for about 1 hour, ... Read more

We booked last minute (1 month out) because we were going to be in Europe and the dates fit when we could go. The itinerary was good, especially Naples and Cannes. But the ship was just OK. It's big but there didn't seem to be many more ... Read more

originally booked this cruise with my girlfriend but had to amend the booking in favour of my son. They charged £280 for the name change. A lot of money, but I had no choice. However they then wanted to charge a further £1300 + ... 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
