Spring Break meets Low staffing & Low Morale

Norwegian Epic Cruise Review by Deuce021

Trip Details
  • Sail Date: Mar 2019
  • Destination: the Western Caribbean
  • Cabin Type: Large Balcony

Embarkation was smooth. Unfortunately several groups of college students on Spring Break basically took over. They were rude and immature. The crew seemed to be very short staffed. I had a waitress in the Manhattan Room flat out decline to bring me a soda because it was going to take too long. This was after our drinks didn’t arrive until after our meal. I also had 2 days where we didn’t see a server at the pool until after 3PM. I had a server at the pool decline to bring my friend a Mudslide because that drink takes too long to make. I was obviously less than impressed. The casino staff was not friendly, and they seemed to be poorly trained. The ship is fine. The entertainment is amazing. I recommend howl at the moon and the other entertainment. But I would be aware of the times where students may be on board, and maybe check the staffing levels on board.
