The staff was lovely. The service was impeccable. What wasn't impeccable were the other passengers. I saw more people dressed like bums and more vulgar and inappropriate tattoos (is there such a thing as an appropriate tattoo?) including ... Read more

We just got off a 7 day cruise out of Miami on the NCL Epic. The stops were Jamaica, Grand Cayman and Cozumel. The ship is huge but none of the common areas, dining, theater and bars seemed any bigger than the other smaller NCL ships. ... Read more

My wife and I have been all over the Caribbean many times since we have lived in Florida for over 40 years. The real destination for us was the Epic. After hearing all the stories and comments we had to see for ourselves. I was some what ... Read more

Just went on my second solo cruise. Found Norwegian Epic searching for ships with studio cabins. I was not disappointed at all. The cabin had enough room for one. Shower and toilet room were tight, but large enough for me. Favorite ... Read more

This was our second trip on Epic, we loved the first trip so much we had to book another before she moved to Europe permanently. Our first trip was in 2011 almost exactly 3 years ago. The entertainment on this ship is excellent, plenty of ... Read more

Wanted to try a larger ship. I've been on 20+ and this was the worst. Starting with the Terrible room layout when you walk in the room the toilet is in a small area on the left shielded by a frosted door and the shower is on the other ... Read more

NCL Epic is a beautiful ship. She has something to offer for everyone. I found the staff to be friendly and anticipatory for the moving to Europe. Why the staff chose to share with me their feelings about moving to Europe is unknown since ... Read more

Embarcation was quick and easy, and the lines were much shorter that expected. Our cabin was ready almost immediately and luggage delivery was prompt. Our cabin steward, Benjamin was efficient , friendly and non-intrusive. We enjoyed the ... Read more

Epic is a nice boat, but there were many "blunders" this time in terms of service. All were promptly remedied but it was noticeably different from what we've experienced on Breakaway (sailed her twice) and the Star. Some examples are a ... Read more

This was our first time cruising like Norwegians. Our previous cruises were on Royal Caribbean (4) and Carnival (1). We tried to approach everything with an open mind but couldn't help comparing the Epic to Royal Caribbean's Oasis and ... Read more

This was our 3rd cruise (2nd Norwegian) so we are not as experienced as others on this site. Nonetheless, I'll share some thoughts. 1) One of the things we most enjoyed on our last NCL cruise was the great music on the pool deck every ... Read more

I just got back from a cruise on the Norwegian Epic and I must say I enjoyed just about every second if it. This was my second cruise on the Epic. The first was in June in the Western Med. It is interesting how you can be on the same ship, ... Read more

Cruised the Epic on Nov 9th. We had been on this ship a couple years ago. At that time, it was pretty new and the hot topic with it's new design. BTW, we just got off a Getaway cruise Nov 1st, so my review may be a bit harsh comparing the ... Read more

We are frequent cruisers with many different ships and found the Epic to be a mixed bag. We chose a spa mini suite and immediately we realized that we made a mistake by booking this cabin. It was too small, including the bed. We are not ... Read more

Luck provided weather for a first cruise that could not be improved upon. Clear skies, sunshine, warm temperatures were almost constant. I took this cruise as an alternative to flying to the USA. From that viewpoint I would rate it 10 out ... Read more

I heard a lot of bad things about the Norwegian Epic ship -- but honestly I cannot say that!  It was wonderful! Did the cruise ship from Barcelona, Spain early October and I will tell you this -- every day is a very tiring day! It's ... Read more

Maybe because we did the trip in October 5-12th out of Barcelona the ship didn't feel that full - maybe it was & I didn't notice it - we did port calls all day long - tons of walking on the tours! Spent most time afterward at Spice Bar ... Read more

I had a fun cruise, because of the company I was with - the ship was horrible. While the crew was great, the ship's decor and the food were completely dissappointing. I've cruised with other cruise lines and the food was spectacular and ... Read more
