Epic, Great Ship, Poor Rooms

Norwegian Epic Cruise Review by Raandall1

Trip Details
  • Sail Date: May 2018
  • Destination: the Western Mediterranean
  • Cabin Type: Family Balcony

Embarkation and Disembarkation went well. My wife needed a wheelchair for distance and was accommodated very well. We went right to our room, it was about 11am. We really enjoyed the Cruise Director. He made the trip super fun. Food was great, although the French Restaurant was disappointing. If you travel on Epic, you must do the Brazilian Restaurant. The food was the best of any restaurant or Buffet on the ship. We stopped in Naples, great shopping. Rome - a must tour city. Florence/Pisa - we went to the tower of Pisa on our own. Its just a quick train ride (one stop) and your there, then we took a taxi. Be sure to get ice cream there, it was fantastic. Cannes, France - terrific stop. Cannes is great walking city. A Mediterranean cruise is all i will take in the future. We've been to Mexico, from Miami and LA, and to the Caribbean, but its nothing like the Mediterranean.

Cabin Review

Family Balcony
Cabin B5 11307

Could not get use to having a bathroom door as a curtain. The shower is on one side of the room and the toilet is on the other, then the bathroom sink is on the other side of the curtain. If you have a 3rd person, they will sleep on the hard couch or with you in the bed. Overall size of the room is very small.

It was raining in Naples and all we did was get off the boat and shop in the Terminal. Very good prices. My wife bought two pair of leather shoes.


We just walked around Cannes, we enjoyed it very much.

Palma de Mallorca (Majorca)

We took a cab into town. Very short ride. We walked and shopped for several hours. Great place to shop.
