Norwegian Epic Cruise Review by mar1060
- Sail Date: May 2019
- Destination: Western Mediterranean
- Cabin Type: Family Balcony
Entertainment was very good—loved Priscilla Queen of the Desert, the Beatles group, Tina Turner impersonator and Burn the Floor. There was also a really good Irish rock band. The ports were all wonderful. If I had to pick favorites, it would be Livorno for Florence (beautiful) and Mallorca (lovely and delicious tapas).
Tours: Used City Wonders for Vatican and Colliseum. Both tours were too long (3 hr lectures each). Used ItalyTours for Best of Florence and Classic Amalfi Coast. Florence was the best tour to see the sights and have time on your own. Ravello was very nice, as were Positano and Amalfi. The ride there and back was long with constant winding turns—I’d take a boat next time! Barcelona was beautiful with lots to see—we did 1/2 day tour with great guide from Barcelona Day tours. Cannes and Nice very nice (ship tour) but guide was rude to some on the tour. So much to see and do in every port—you will need to pace yourself! Crew was excellent, helpful and friendly. Norwegian does cruising so well! They have become my favorite cruise line.

CannesBus tour with 1 hour on your own. No bathroom on bus, so grab a coffee and use restaurants restroom. Public bathroom had long line and wasted 15 minsView All 488 Cannes Cruise Port Reviews
