Not So "Epic" Cruise

Embarkation was chaotic to get on board the ship. At one point, after methodically calling out group number in sequence, a GENERAL BOARDING announcement was called and a stampede ensued to the doorway. An employee stopped the herd at the doorway saying the announcement came from a different terminal. It was at that point it was just impossible to turn the entire crowd around and back to their ...

Transatlantic bliss - Solo!

This was the second time I had the pleasure of the EPIC and the first as a solo. I was much more impressed with the EPIC this time. Loved her the first time, but after having more time onboard, was able to find even better reviews and places and entertainment. The fact I was solo, also meant I discovered the exclusive studio staterooms and lounge. I am only 26. Quite young for a solo cruiser. ...

Our first time sailing with NCL and their freestyle dining system. We were very happy about everything pertaining to this cruise. The price was right. We had a balcony-forward which was partially enclosed for protection, but that meant a larger and more private area for our enjoyment. The embarkation went smoothly. As we had read online before departure, we knew the staterooms were on the cozy ...

This was our first cruise with NCL after two previous cruises with Royal Caribbean.THE SHIP - Huge and very impressive. Layout and decor was excellent. We found it easier to navigate our way around the ship than we expected. Pool area was fine if under utilised due to the weather.CABINS - No problem with shower, toilet arrangements. I think the negative aspects have been over exaggerated. The bed ...

We've just returned from 22 wonderful days on the Epic. We found the staff exceptionally friendly with many greeting us by name. As advertised, the entertainment is superb. The big name acts were as expected: Blue Man Group, Legends, Second City. All were enjoyable, especially as the transatlantic sea days provided time for special "meet the performers" sessions for BMG and Legends. In ...

Overall Comment....This was our first cruise and I would give the cruse a solid B+ to A-. The ship was practically new and the staff was extremely polite and helpful. We were worried after reading a few critical reviews that were not very favorable. Again, we were first time sailors, (not travelers), so please factor that into the comments here. Cabin.....B+Our cabin was #8079 and it had a ...

Epic missed the boat for experienced cruisers!

If you're a new cruiser or a single cruiser, you might have a great time on Epic. My husband and I have taken 8 cruises with 4 different cruise lines. This was our 3rd with NCL. We enjoyed the other 2. We had a balcony cabin. We are both average size adults. The space between the bed and the counter was only wide enough for one person walking sideways. Smallest balcony cabin ever! This ship is ...

We arrived a day early and stayed at the Hampton Inn, blue lagoon. It was OK for 1 night. The location was convenient to CVS, liquor store, publix and 3 restaurants (cuban-excellent, chinese and italian)I'm not sure I would stay there again, though. EMBARKATION; we arrived at terminal around ll;00 and everything was extremely organized, and were probably get onto the boat by 11:30. Our ...

This writing is basically for passengers on the Norwegian Cruise Line's Epic who are booked or are intending to book passage in the Solo Studio Cabins. The purpose is to show what the cabin presents to individual passengers. I will probably write additional reviews on other aspects of the ship and the sailing from the Port of Miami, at a later time. THE EPIC'S SOLO STUDIO CABIN The ...
