We were excited to try a new ship and new cruise route. First thing we noticed when going to our cabin was there were no fish swimming forward on the carpet! That is a staple on all NCL ships except this one. Minor detail but it helps at the end of a long day to help get you back to your cabin when you are exhausted. The ship design was choppy. Floors abruptly ended and later found out ...

Unusual ship design

We chose this cruise for the good incentives, it was a Norwegian ship that we had not sailed before and it left at a different port than we had experienced before. Port Canaveral was great. It was easy to embark the ship, there were the usual lines, but things kept moving and it was well organized. The ships design IS AWFUL. The designers "pranked" the public with the cabin design. The ...

This was planned well in advance with 4 couples and 2 adult children. This is our 11th cruise and this one would rate only about 3.5 stars to us. Food was excellent, staff we encountered were excellent, room was well kept. Now the downside. We went 12-15-2018 to 12-22-2018, the ship was packed. Not sure you could have shoehorned another person on board. Many of the activities you had to either ...

Noisy, smoky and R rated show

BE WARNED the stage show Priscilla is R rated and it ties up the main theater for several nights of th cruise. I’m not a prude but the ship’s write up did not warn it was r rated. I took my family and we were very uncomfortable. Just be aware. Otherwise the production itself is well done and the costumes were fabulous The public areas are crowded and noisy. The atrium where they have many ...

Worst cruise ship ever.

Never having taken an NCL Cruise we were looking forward to trying Freestyle cruising. From the very start it was a disaster. Tiniest room we’ve ever had, terrible lighting. Way too many people for the commons areas, elevators etc... lines for EVERYTHING. No outdoor space, no way to stroll the decks...no outside decks not crammed with stuff. Even trying to get off the ship was a nightmare, we had ...

Don't sail Epic or from Port Canaveral

Elevators were a total disaster! More later. Disembarkation at Port Canaveral was a disaster. Full cruise package for Internet was a rip-off. Frequently simple news pages would not load at all. Availability of information before and during was poor. There was almost no description of shows. Instructions of how to use amenities was sparse of totally non-existent. Food was mostly good, ...

Norwegian Epic an EPIC Fail

We chose Norwegian because this was a family trip and we had sailed on Norwegian several times before. We have also cruised on other lines such as Celebrity, Windstar, Holland America, Regent and AMA. I was somewhat anxious when we booked the cruise because the ship is so large, but it was for a family vacation so I thought it would be okay. One of the reasons we chose Norwegian is for the ...

Highly Disappointed Loyal NCL Cruiser

My husband and I wanted to take our 3 children and nephew on a pre-Christmas cruise. We had the 2 bedroom villa in the Haven and my son and nephew had a balcony cabin. The staff was not nearly as friendly compared to the previous cruises we’ve taken with NCL. This was our 3rd time getting the 2 bedroom villa in the Haven. My daughter and I decided to go up to the Haven’s private area where it was ...

I can definitely tell you that this was a whole different experience. I usually cruise Carnival. But i wanted to try something different. My husband and I never had a honeymoon, now that our children are older, we decided that it was the perfect time to take one. On their website Norwegian really "seems" to give you a good value, free beverage package and freestyle dinning always sounds nice, ...

This was our (my wife and myself's) third time on the Epic in as many years. The date and port were perfect and the Epic was available for sailing. There is only one gripe and an immense amount of compliments I could give the staff and ship. Let's get the gripe out of the way. During day one and two there was one, yes one, staff member roaming the lounge chair area taking drink orders in Spice ...
