Norwegian Epic Cruise Review by klepa
- Sail Date: October 2011
- Destination: Western Mediterranean
- Cabin Type: Family Balcony
Being "freestyle," that means to be able to eat whenever and wherever we wanted, is a good idea. However, the food was good (not great) in the main restaurant, and below average in the bars and grills. The Garden Cafe (buffet) was our best choice.
The entertainment was not good at all. Blue Man Group was OK ( funny). "Legends in Concert" was awful. Spanish Ballet dancers were good, but the room was not suitable for this type of performance. The only good show was the "Cirque Dinner Show", but we paid extra for it. Live music on the ship was always too loud, that we could not talk to each other in the lounges, sitting far enough from the performers.
I like the spa, the only quite place on the ship, except my cabin, but ... I paid extra $100 to use it.

BarcelonaWe spent three days prior to the cruise in Barcelona. We were stayng in the hotel. Barcelona is a nice city with many places to visit. Flamenco show in the Pueblo Espanol was the best!View All 1,869 Barcelona Cruise Port Reviews

Florence (Livorno)The city is too far from the port. The private tour is the best choice there. We visited Pisa and Florence. We would like to have more time there.View All 932 Florence (Livorno) Cruise Port Reviews

Rome (Civitavecchia)Train from port to the city was good and not expensive. We took port shuttle to the train station. Still the stop is too short for Rome sightseeing tours.View All 1,881 Rome (Civitavecchia) Cruise Port Reviews
