Norwegian Epic Cruise Review by Illerrep

Trip Details
  • Sail Date: May 2018
  • Destination: the Western Mediterranean
  • Cabin Type: Mid-Ship Balcony

We chose this cruise for the ports. We wanted to do the western Mediterranean. We were not disappointed. Everything was wonderful. The room was plenty big enough. There was more than enough storage space. Two closets for hanging clothes, plus three drawers. We were able to put our two large suitcases in the one closet one on top of the other. My carry on fit by the couch near the sliding doors. The balcony was large. We were in room 9224. Contrary to what some people said, the frosted glass on the toilet and shower areas was not a problem. There also was a curtain that could be pulled over to separate that area if it bothered someone. The food was excellent. We ate at the garden cafe several times. The choices were unbelievable. The taste and Manhattan room were also terrific. Shanghai had fantastic Chinese food.

The staff was incredible. So pleasant and accommodating. We usually stopped at Maltings whiskey bar on the 7th floor each night. Kit, the wait server was so nice and always knew what we wanted. Our housekeeping person, Arnold, was the best. Such a wonderful man. They both made us feel special.

The Cavern had a Beatles band, who were very good. Shore excursions were a little on the pricey side,but very good. The embarkation and disembarkation were fine. Was very quick and easy.

So much to see. You really need more days to see everything. We did get in the highlights. The colosseum, the Roman forum, the Trevi fountain and St. Peter’s basilica.
