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

I returned yet again to the Epic because I personally think all the Staff on board are outstanding. NCL seem to have the happiest people working for them on this particular ship. Since the cruise lines have introduced the "all ... Read more
