Review for Norwegian Epic to Europe - Western Mediterranean

We are a family of 6, mom, dad, 19, 17, 6, 3. July 24-31 BCN-BCN We had two cabins 10087 and 10088. Booked flights through NCL with one free flight included per cabin. Since we had two cabins, they actually booked flights for each cabin separately and our family was split up 3 and 3 on separate flight itineraries! I was shocked that they would do this, but when I called (on hold for an ...

We chose this cruise for family activities and splash academy when the kids arent with us. Bad communication and organization: We missed the one email of hundreds of spam emails NCL sended out that described needing a covid test. As a result, about 1,000 people waited over 3 hours at the port to see the one technician administering tests. We showed up at about 3pm, and ended up boarding ...

We did this cruise because we wanted to try a new ship and a new location. We stayed at the Hampton Inn in New Jersey for the park and sail. It was a short ride to the pier. The process to board the ship was very easy. Of course, it helped that we were in the Haven. The room was fine but we really hated the tub/shower combo. We had to get a step stool to get into the shower. In the end, my wife ...

Although just 2 adult travellers, work commitments meant we had to travel in the school holidays, there are a lot of families aboard as expected but we have generally found adult only areas and it has not been an issue. Our cabin (14826) club balcony suite midship but a distance from either front or back stairs (no midship stairs on here), but is spacious, spotlessly clean, enormous bathroom ...

This was our first time on any NCL ship and we were travelling as a group of four (2 adults and 2 children aged 11 and 8). Our previous cruises have been with Celebrity, Seaborn and Royal Caribbean. We chose this particular cruise late in the day after not having travelled anything much over the last couple of years due the pandemic. The port of embarkation, we knew, and the destinations ...

Embarkation Off to a challenging start. IT problems. Many room keys not working even after being reprogrammed. Drinks package not working on some cards. Lines for guest services backed up for hours. Some key cards needed to be reprogrammed 3 times or more. Some guests not linked with credit card of primary guest even though we checked in online and imputed all this information. It was a ...

Getting onto the cruise took a little longer than expected as it was line after line between checking Negative covid results and Passports. The cruise ship staff was Amazing and always so cheerful and helpful. The lack of staff in the public dining facilities was obvious. Pre-covid there were many many staff members in the Summer Palace or Indigo to assist. We had a party of 10 and the staff ...

First of all never ever let the Cruise book your airline tickets it took us 30 hours to get home. Cruise embarkation was fine .Rooms were clean and very nice room attendant did a great job cleaning but she was so busy she really didn’t get much personal care and I don’t blame her I blame the Cruise for being understaffed. The food was mediocre. Varieties in the buffet minimal. Especially ...

Why did I choose this cruise? We choose this cruise because it appeared to have more port calls than a similar Princess cruise. Lessons learned: Look carefully at the times and places of the port calls, and ability to add a land option. With the NCL itinerary, we could not add excursions on the embarkation or debarkation days nor any days before or after the cruise. Tell people about ...

Our Cruise on NCL Joy - Joy-fully Perfect!

We chose this cruise because we have never been to Bermuda and wanted to see it. We chose NCL Joy because we love cruising NCL and, once again, they did not disappoint. We enjoyed a midship balcony cabin in perfect Bermuda weather. Actually, our first port of call was Norfolk, VA. We did a self guided walking tour around the town and we enjoyed our time in this friendly, clean, quiet ...
