Only short cruse available to book at the time. Glad it was only 4 day. Made friends with some first time cruisers. ran into them later; talk about being disappointed. Told them not all cruise lines were like this. Arrived at pier at 1pm. joined a wait line as long as the ship, no one greeting, no one with info, had to seek out where we could make show and dinner reservations. Service was hit or ...

Logistics getting on and off the cruise, especially debarkation which was the worst of any of the 25 plus times we have cruised. We had the drink package which did not include water in the room or the self service wine bar in the buffet. The lines at the bar discouraged getting a drink. Drinks with meals were no problem. We had specialty dining. However, getting a reservation was difficult or ...

Met up with 3 other families and was part of the game convention. The cruise was nothing special, too many people for the staff. Long waits for drinks little or no service from staff and the wait for all restaurants was unacceptable, 30-60 minutes before waiters and then 30-60 minutes before food arrived. On top of that our stop at the cay was canceled due to high waves. You would think a ...

Have been cruising for over 25 years and love it. NCL's Epic was the most horrible cruise we have ever been on. Waitingfor 40 minutes to get seated at the Teppanyaki restaurant with a reservation. Waited another 30 minutes till waiter takes drink order. Waited another 30 minutes till cook showes up. But that time I had gone to another restaurant and gotten food cause I was ready to faint from ...

Awful waste of vacation time and our money

We choose this cruise as our family vacation for the year. We enjoy beach type vacations and have enjoyed cruises in the past. We choose the Epic because it looked like it had a lot to offer our whole family. Unfortunately, we could not have been more wrong. The ship was severally under staffed. Everything had massive time consuming lines. For example, the boat offered 3 water slides, ...

First Time Cruiser • Age 20s

Me and my boyfriend booked a four night Bahamas cruise on the Epic for our first cruise. We are both college students on spring break in our early 20's, we got the drink package and it was well worth it. The first night we were very impressed, we thought the staff was very friendly and attentive. The first full day we stopped in Nassau and has a great time at Atlantis. The second day we were ...

Not great!

I will start by saying that our cabin steward BJ was amazing! We had a great view from our AFT balcony stateroom. But overall the communication on the ship was poor. Unless they were trying to sell you something. Here is a list of what we did not like. 1. To get a drink in many cases take 45 minutes or more. This was true all over the ship for the entire cruise. 2. Getting to eat dinner ...

We chose this cruise along with 12 others to celebrate a 50 year birthday, several had not cruised but, I had. We were supposed to get off at a private island but, we did not - said weather was bad and more coming, nothing but sun that day, the bottom line is they hit a reef and then we were penalized. Spoke with several other people on ship one couple had been several times and have failed to ...

-It took a solid 3.5 hours to disembark and our cruise director kept saying that this is normal -They canceled a port indicating choppy waters and we completely understood but what followed was a chain of events -They made no arrangements for any other port and no activities on board till the afternoon -Upon cancelation, they didn't make any backup plans and we remained at sea for 2 ...

Epic Failure

6-10 Cruises • Age 60s

I bought a full beverage package, but still had to pay for a bottle of water, ridiculous! Also carried on 2 bottles of my own wine, requiring a $15/bottle corkage fee especially when I'm also paying the full beverage package is larceny! Norwegian should be ashamed of this policy. Other cruise lines do not do this. The bars were nice, but overcrowded and understaffed, which made them not as nice as ...
