My husband and I booked this cruise for our 35th wedding anniversary. My husband had been on a cruise many years ago and enjoyed it, but I had been skeptical due to food poisoning reports on other ships and I wasn't sure if I would get sea ... Read more

We chose this through Diamond Resorts (Timeshare). We have previously cruised with P&O a few times. We found the entertainment about the best we've seen onboard and, whilst still very good, we found things not as good as our ... Read more

We sailed out of Barcelona on NCL Epic 7/23 for 7 nites. We were in cabin 11103, same weird bathroom design etc. Tons of storage, bed a bit too short, nice bigger balcony. My sis stayed in the solo cabin and it was awesome. I ... Read more

Being the first time we had tried a cruise we were delighted with the Epic and the whole experience. Balcony cabin had ample storage space and cannot fault the cleanliness of it and the whole ship. Had previously read about the small ... Read more

As a travelling group of 9 people, with the ages from 19-78, we had to choose a cruise worked for everyone. The Epic is a big ship but never felt over crowded. One person was a single traveller and had never cruised before. We chose the ... Read more

Grandson chose this ship because of the waterslides, as good a reason as any! He was right, excellent facilities for children of all ages. If so inclined parents could "dump" their children in Kids Club from 9/10am to 1.30am next ... Read more

I chose this cruise first of all because of the solo cabins. I thought that the port of call excursions (all researched and set up by myself, and not through the ship) would be the focal point of my vacation, and I would treat the cruise ... Read more

We chose the Norwegian Epic because it made more sense for us. The ship looked nice and the destinations were awesome. In this case if you only care about the destinations and not the ship. You're on the right ship.... The level of ... Read more

What an amazing time me and my husband had. Embankment was so easy in Barcelona, we were on the ship and eating lunch in the Garden Cafe by 11:40am. Food in the buffet was brilliant, such a variety of different dishes and the cakes were ... Read more

Love this cruise and hope to do it again. I selected this cruise for the itinerary. Plenty to do in every port. Upon boarding I was surprised by the condition of my cabin. I shared an inside cabin and thought it may be clustrophobic, but I ... Read more

Other peoples reviews are accurate. The ship is very good with a wide range of facilities, but it is the crew which make the experience excellent and cope with 4000 passengers very well. Embarkation was a bit slow as most passengers did ... Read more

First, anyone thinking about this cruise should know that this cruise embarks/disembarks at both Barcelona and Civitavecchia (Rome). About 3/4 of the passengers use Barcelona and the remainder use Civitavecchia. I would recommend staying ... Read more

Our son and family chose Epic because it fit their summer schedule and offered for us to join then, which we did. We have cruised 9 times previously and never experienced anywhere near these problems. Our Stateroom required four ... Read more

Overall a great experience, best of all was the Epic Beatles, and all the entertainment onboard. Make sure you do not miss the shows. The only con about the vessel I found is that I had to change my dining habits or I'd miss the ... Read more

We embarked in Barcelona and it could not have been easier. Very efficient and well run port. We got to the port about 11 and in our cabin before noon. They said they may not be ready but we could leave our bags in the cabin, but the ... Read more

I just returned from my first cruise. My sister and I are in our 50's and traveled together on the Epic for a 7 day Mediterranean cruise. The Ship is huge, but surprisingly, we were able to find plenty of nooks and out of the way places ... Read more

The itinerary was amazing, with quality stops - not unknown 'filler' stops along the way. It was an active pace! The ship had so many offerings of things to do while onboard. We enjoyed all the entertainment and games (and our 23-year ... Read more

First we got a great deal. But also we really enjoy Norwegian. Enjoy the "freestyle" environment. Part of that is eating on your own schedule, sitting where you want to. And no formal night; unless you want to. Staff were ... Read more

It was our first cruise and we got hooked! We stayed in a mid-ship inside cabin which was great, spacious and very clean. The bed was soooo comfortable and the sheets were so soft! Our stateroom steward Wilfred was very friendly and made ... Read more

We flew into Barcelona, Spain (the departure point for our cruise) one day prior to departure. I would recommend this, as it gave us a chance to get acclimated to the time change and rest up from our long flight. Checking in to the ... Read more
