My wife and I just disembarked the Norwegian Epic, I wish I could give a good recommendation, but I can't.
Airline Accommodations: Very good, our trip started in San Francisco, minimal layover in Atlanta, both ways. Grade "A+"
Pre cruise accommodation: We paid for the 3 day pre cruise visit of Rome. Stayed at the Crowne Plaza St. Peter's. 4 Star hotel. Transfers were included. Grade "A"
Well designed except for TV. It was a flat screen that could only be watched while standing up
