Norwegian Epic Cruise Review by Scarlotte

Trip Details
  • Sail Date: Dec 2018
  • Destination: the Southern Caribbean
  • Cabin Type: Balcony

BE WARNED the stage show Priscilla is R rated and it ties up the main theater for several nights of th cruise. I’m not a prude but the ship’s write up did not warn it was r rated. I took my family and we were very uncomfortable. Just be aware. Otherwise the production itself is well done and the costumes were fabulous

The public areas are crowded and noisy. The atrium where they have many of the seminars is open to the middle of main hallway at midship right across from guest services— a very busy and noisy intersection

The Taste dining room is also very noisy. Its difficult to carry on a conversation. The food is good but service can be slow

The casino, which allows smoking, is also open to a main hall midship on deck 6 and to get from one end of the ship to the other you have to walk through the smoking area. Since the midship area is open from deck five to deck seven, you can smell smoke in much of the public area on decks 5, 6 and 7

Other than the 3 shows the Epic promotes, there isn’t alot of family evening entertainment unless you go to one lounge or another
