Epic was disappointing: Norwegian Epic Cruise Review by 2peryearcruiser

Epic was disappointing
Destination: Europe - Eastern Mediterranean
In summary, we believe that Celebrity and Royal Caribbean are better for cruisers with grown children.
At Laverno, we chose Cinque Terra, and had good weather, but the boats would not run and there was an Italian strike against government policy and later the trains would not run. What we did get to was beautiful, At the Rome port, we chose Orvieto, which is an ancient village on a hill. The tour was well run, with a local expert giving excellent instruction. It is well worth seeing if you are already familiar with Rome.
On the next day we went to Capri. The island was beautiful and very commercial. We had the opportunity on these excursions to meet and have lunch with fellow cruisers. Ports of call are the only opportunities to meet them, because with freestyle cruising there are no dinner seating assignments. Less
Cabin review: BA12217 Mid-Ship Balcony
We chose a midships balcony cabin. Once on board we found that there are no midships elevators, only front and back. To go from our cabin to the service desk, one has to go the length of the ship. The balcony was the place where we could be side by side, because the room was so narrow that we could not pass each other without backing up.Read All Mid-Ship Balcony (BA) Reviews >>
