Norwegian Barcelona Cruise Reviews

US Coast Guard cutter making darkened ship/nighttime transit through canal.  Wonder why?
Evening conclusion of entire canal transit on Panama City/Pacific side.
Panama Canal transit.  New canal uses tugs vs tracked mules to keep vessels centered in the lock.
Beautiful ship.

NCL CASH EXTRACTION

Review for Norwegian Epic to Europe - Western Mediterranean

Never been with NCL before and probably won't cruise with them again. Everything they do board is about cash extraction. They charge a fee for for buying from their shops, for the pleasure of serving you. Gambling is the main feature on the ship, lots and lots of tables. Although we had a drinks package, bottled water was not included, for a litre of water $6.00 + 20% SC. There was no ...

Seemed good value at time and I hadn't cruised with Norwegian before. No queues etc at gatwick - brill! Smooth on time flight - brill! arrived Barcelona immigration arrivals - packed to bursting point with thousands of passengers - some from the USA - and no perceivable queue movement. Hot, stuffy, no toilets or water. After realisation that more staff an better organisation required some more ...

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 ...

First cruise and this ship/crew exceeded all expectations

Review for Norwegian Epic to Europe - Western Mediterranean

First Time Cruiser • Age 30s

This was my first cruise I've ever taken and I was blown away. This cruise exceeded all of my expectations. I was really nervous about being on a ship for 11 days for fear of seasickness and it was never a problem. One of the days we couldn't go into port because there were 50 mph winds and the boat rocked a little but I never actually got sick. The ship itself is massive and even after 11 days ...

This cruise fitted in with our holiday dates. We fell for the advertised special offers which were so badly advertised we found ourselves ££££££££ out of pocket. We decided to have the speciality dining. On our last NCL cruise this offer lasted the whole week. There was nothing on the advertising that said this was not the case. So imagine our surprise on the third night we were faced with a ...

Best NCL cruise yet - our first in the Haven

We took the same ship and intinerary in fall 2017 and had a bad medical experience (unrelated to anything on the cruise). So this was a redo. Due to pandemic, prices were crazy low so we booked a two bedroom suite in the Haven. I'm sure that colored our experience quite a bit, but still I found things on the Epic better than the previous time. Start with Covid testing, which was done by the ...

We booked this cruise with open eyes and performed every piece of diligence possible with the information available, but Norwegian managed to 'con' us, and as we learned onboard many other customers. From the home page online you quickly find the Sail Safe section which clearly states everyone onboard is vaccinated and there are no shore excursion restrictions (correct as of August 2021), but ...

First I would like to say the crew on Norwegian epic was wonderful!! Waited a year and a half just to go on my first cruise with Norwegian. We booked excursions for every port. We were so excited ! We enjoyed all our excursions until our last one to Florence and Pisa. That was the worst experience I’ve ever had on an excursion on any cruise. The tour guide was rude, she constantly put down Pisa ...

I like NCL cruise line just was not happy with this cruise experience this has not been my first cruise with the company. I do enjoy some things like free at sea that they offer and i didn not enjoy other this like they could have done more activities during the sea days but it was kind of monotone thru the sea days. I was really disappointed with the glow party i was expecting a little more in ...
