I chose this cruise to experience the Epic. We are a retired couple. We found the pool area very noisy, there were lots of children everywhere. The pools were very small and impossible to use because of the children jumping in on top of you. The shows were amazing. The food was excellent especially the buffet. The cabin seemed to be rather cramped with the massive bed. the service on board was good apart from some of the staff in the buffet area who were very glum. We found the shore excursions very expensive so we booked a independent package for four days. The ports of call amazing. We would go with NCL but a smaller ship in future. Our visit to rome was wonderful especially the Vatican city. Pisa and Florence another great day but lots of walking. Another day ashore to Sorrento and pompeii again great days despite some rain. Pompei our 3rd visit still more things to see and enjoy. One day at sea because of bad weather. Our last day spent in Marseilles, we had a great time.

Cabin Review

Inside
Cabin ID 9050
The cabin seemed cramped but was probably due to the very large bed. It had a large storage area and separate bathroom and toilet, however it would have been nicer if the basin was in the bathroom rather than in the bedroom (for privacy).
