I had labeled myself as "not a cruise ship person" until I took this cruise on the NCL Epic. What attracted me was the availability of the Studio Cabin design and a way to avoid the usual single supplement charged by most cruise lines for solo travelers. The studio cabins were very well-appointed and had enough storage space if one utilized space under your bed for luggage, etc. The only issue ...

The cruise as a whole was extremely fun, but we avoided doing as much as we would have liked because of prices. We only had one drink a day each (there were 2 of us), and the drinks cost about $20 (together) every time we ordered. It was frustrating that we pre-payed the service charges, yet there was gratuity tacked on to every drink order. We didn't even do enough on the ship that would have ...

This was my first cruise, and my moms 6th cruise (5th with Norwegian). It was her first time on the Epic. As a first timer, if I had to make a decision on cruising again, I wouldn't cruise again based on my experience on the Epic. Here is a list of what we did not like: Food: - portions were small, and quality was lacking - too many specialty restaurants you had to pay for and the menu was ...

Just returned from a 7 day cruise to St. Martin, St. Thomas and Nassau. We were looking forward to experiencing the "super-sized" vessel. We've cruised once on Celebrity to Alaska and then been with NCL in Hawaii, Mexico and Western Europe. Flew into Ft. Lauderdale/Hollywood, primarily because of Southwest. Arranged shuttle with SAS who provided superlative service to and from Miami cruise ...

I have read long drawn out reviews on the NCL Epic, especially before we lneft on our cruise. For the most part the reviews were right. The good part is that the food and service was above average, but the Ship was so poorly designed that it made everything seem unpleasant. Here are the highlights: Embarkation was long and tiresome. I have been on larger ships that took significantly less time to ...

Myself, my wife, our two teenage daughters, and a family friend, just returned from the Norwegian Epic, having taken a back to back sailing, from the 14th to the 28th August. On the whole, we had a superb couple of weeks, went to some amazing places, and met some great people. However, this being the inaugural sailing, the ship has issues. We've never cruised with NCL before (the only other cruise ...

Eastern Caribbean Epic Adventure Trip Report We traveled as a group of 10 occupying 4 different rooms. This was a well planned trip with many dining reservations made in advance. Below is a list of highlights related to this trip. Things that went well: 1. Cagney's is by far the absolute best dining experience around. 2. The rock wall is a huge hit with the kids with short waiting lines. 3. ...
