Moratorium ,over, NCL Epic not ready for prime time
"I tried to address my concerns in the Post Cruise Survey that goes out to guests but the survey website experienced difficulties and no one from the Guest Experience department responded to my email for well over 2 weeks.This could have been overlooked (written off to Covid or NCL being “rusty” after being on hold for so long) but what tainted this experience was an incident involving one of the Cruise Directors staff members one morning during a round of Trivial Pursuit...."Read More

Cruised out of Rome and my flights and transfers were all organised by my agent with no issues whatsoever, met in Rome and although I thought the transfer was probably too long from being greeted to departing for the port on a shared 50 seater coach. Actual embarkation was straightforward and very quick and I was soon at my cabin. I needed proof of a negative covid test, vaccinations and that ...

Sailed out of San Juan which was a great port to start with. I have read mixed reviews about this ship and was not as excited for the ship as I was for the Southern Caribbean itinerary. However, it was a great ship and I found it very easy to navigate. I've been on the Breakaway and really liked that ship too. Food review- My first stop on embarkation day was to O'Sheehans. That was meh...in ...

After months of being unable to cruise due to the moratorium, I was eager to resume sailing. I had booked one NCL cruise but that was canceled. I then booked NCL Epic`s sailing from Rome on 20 Nov 2022. There were several alterations to the cruise identified shortly before I boarded the ship (but subsequent to the cut-off date for canceling with no financial penalty). First, the production of ...

Some important bullet points: --The COVID tests on board were clearly not performed professionally or with the intent to garner accurate results. The very edge of my nostrils were swabbed for split seconds all four times I was tested aboard. NCL hires a company called Eurofins, and its job is clearly to ensure that COVID cases aren't reported, or at least not at particularly revenue-sensitive ...

Great ship, bad itinerary

My wife and I had been on Epic twice before this cruise so when the opportunity to go to the ABC islands out of San Juan we jumped at it. Without notice, without any explanation, and after the cruise was paid for and after the airline arrangements were made, the itinerary was changed dramatically. Bonaire as a stop was dropped and we had a day and a half at sea between Aruba and Curacao. The stop ...

We chose this cruise for the itinerary and ship size (not too big but amenities of a larger ship). The itinerary was excellent, although we missed a port (Bonaire) and were annoyed with “after final payment” changes. Tip: We flew into San Juan a day early and stayed right in the Airport Hotel. Sooooo convenient and only needed 1 taxi ride directly to the port the next day. It was clean and ...

The rooms used for shows are too small for that many people. We had to be in line for an hour before the shows even started. This is our first time sailing with Norwegian and I would not sail the epic again. Why were the Beatles put in a small, crapy room, when we couldn’t get in for a show we tried to get in there, guess what? Dining was great in the two big restaurants, the one in the middle ...

This was our first cruise ever for our 30th anniversary and I cannot find enough words to say how much we loved it. Yes, I read reviews prior to our leaving and did have a knot in my stomach before stepping onto the Epic since most of the reviews were bad. I am not an experienced cruiser and cannot tell you if this cruise was better than any other one, but I have traveled for most part of my life ...

An interesting itinerary was the main factor for choosing this cruise as well as previously positive experiences with NCL (we have been on more than 5 cruises with them before). Besides, we had a birthday to celebrate. After we boarded the ship, and throughout the cruise, we could not help but notice a complete lack of enthusiasm by the crew - even including the cruise director. As if they ...

Not up to NCL par

After 5 NCL cruises in the last 30 months, this was by far the worst NCL cruise I’ve taken. I’ve been trying to be loyal to NCL, but after this last voyage, I’m rethinking that. The entire staff seemed to be unorganized. It appeared that no one working for NCL was very happy to be on this trip. Not a lot of greetings or smiles. Service was very poor. Wait times in restaurants were long. It ...
