We had the most EPIC vacation on the Norwegian Epic (pun totally intended). The ship had a great layout, the service was great and we really, really loved the food. The Chinese restaurant was the biggest surprise. This restaurant, along with the buffet, Irish bar and two main dining rooms, are included in the price of the cruise. The noodle bar that is part of the Chinese restaurant was great!! We ate there every other night. My six year old also loved the child care. The theming was amazing! He attended the pirate, spy and outer space nights and loved them. He even cried when we tried to pick him up early...he was having too much fun with all of his new friends. My only advice for next time would be to book specialty dining early. We enjoyed the Cirque show but would have loved to dine at the Japanese restaurant. It was booked completely. Also, if you are going to the private island, make sure you make a reservation for the tender to the island. We could have had an extra hour or two of island time if we had figured that out sooner. Don’t feel like this was clearly publicized. Overall we will book Norwegian again!!

Cabin Review

Mid-Ship Balcony
Cabin BB 9174
So glad we had a balcony!! The space on the balcony was great! The layout is awesome. Tons of creative storage! Also loved that the sink, toilet and shower were separated so everyone could get ready at the same time.
