This was our 12th or 13th cruise, all on NCL! We wanted to cruise the Mediterranean, but didn't realize we would be on the MEGASHIP! All of our other cruises have been on the Jewell class and Spirit class ships. All of our trepidation about the megaship were dissolved when we got on board in about 20 minutes at the pier in Barcelona. Excursion disembarkation was very smooth and efficient. The pool area was crowded, but it was not a problem. There was so much to do we hardly saw other passengers. The excursions were fantastic! I highly recommend the Mediterranean cruise and look forward to being on the EPIC again. The crew was great, and the food was fantastic, but that is the NCL standard. Even with all the passengers on board, the Garden Cafe was not crowded and we were able to get our daily omelettes quickly! The specialty restaurants were all great, as usual. We never used the elevators, so I have no idea how long people waited.

Another Fantastic, but tiring, cruise!

Cabin Review

Mid-Ship Balcony
Cabin BB 10191
The cabin design on the EPIC is different than any of the other ships we've been on! There is a lot more storage space and the redesign of the shower and commode is great! A balcony is the ONLY way to travel!
