  3. Norwegian Epic
Our booking agent recommended this cruise although she had never cruised with Norwegian . We were first time cruisers and all our friends and family that cruise several times per year told us how great the trip would be. We had an interior cabin that was small but very comfortable. We were surprised by the amount of room. Our room steward keep our room tidy although we only saw her twice during the cruise. We dined in the main dinning rooms and buffet. We were surprised by the limited menus in the main dinning rooms. The food was not impressive. The best meal we had was breakfast in the buffet. This ship was very large and we walked a lot to get from place to place. All and all the ship was very nice and clean. The truly down side were the number of Spring Break college kids on board. Their numbers were so large they took over the pool areas and bars. They were loud. We enjoyed the entertainment, seeing both Broadway shows. The Beatles cover band was really good. The weather issues keep us from going ashore at Great Stirrup Cay and the stop in Nassau had to be rearranged. No one could have predicted the weather issues. Disembarkation was a challenge. Apparently most people handled their own luggage to get off the ship faster so it took 30 minutes of waiting for an elevator to go down and another hour of standing in line and snaking through decks just to get to the door. Would we cruise again...that is still a question. Probably not with Norwegian if we do decide to try a cruise again.

First ever cruise and not impressed.
