Long time cruiser, first on Norwegian

Review for Norwegian Epic to Caribbean - Eastern

I've been on many cruise with most being on Carnival. I think I've been on 19 Carnival, 1 Royal Caribbean, 1 Disney, and 1 Commodore (no longer around). We usually cruise on Carnival because it's cheaper, but we thought this was one of the best cruises we have been on. We had been on a similar route, and did our own thing as far as excursions go, but the class of people on board and certain ...

I will start this review with how horrible the disembarkation process was for this ship and that this ship was too large for Port Canaveral and Grand Cayman. Never in all of our years of cruising have we ever saw the disorganization that we saw on the Epic. We are seasoned cruisers (Platinum Plus with NCL) and picked this cruise purely because the dates worked to take our young grandchildren. ...

We chose Norwegian because we had not sailed with them before and had big time expectations since we’ve sailed several times on their cheaper competitors. In many ways they delivered on our high expectations and on others not so much. We arrived at the port a couple hours before embarking. The lines were very long but we were near the front luckily. When the embarkation process started, it ...

A group of 8 friends booked this cruise together. Our rooms were close to one another which was very convenient. My husband & I were extremely pleased with the comfort, cleanliness, and daily tending of our room by Francisco. He was superb. Other than the Brazilian style restaurant, Moderno, which was a huge disappointment regarding service and quantity & quality of food, all other ...

Oh if you didn't realize the ship was extremely crowded!! It was during kids Spring Break time, so being somewhat crowded was to be expected. That said, the venues such as Headliner's comedy club and the like were ridiculous (had to be there about 30 minutes prior to get a seat). The Ship is starting to show it's age and is certainly not on the same level as some of the other newer NCL ships. ...

Terrible Service and Overly Crowded

Very disappointed in this cruise. Booked a last minute vacation and regret not reading more reviews before choosing this cruise line and specifically this ship. The Epic is small for the amount of people on board. With my father using a walker, it was especially hard to navigate many of the public areas, and even getting in/out of our stateroom was challenging as he couldn't fit the walker ...

This was a sort of last minute cruise (booked end of January for 3/30-4/6 cruise). Despite all that was happening in regards to the Epic, we were going on this cruise to relax and that we did. Embarkation: We pulled into the pier parking lot at 10:10, dropped off are luggage, breezed thru security and check in (boarding group 10)and took a seat to wait. At 11:00 they announced that ...

First Time Cruiser • Age 60s

My friend was turning 50 so we got together for the cruise. The embarkation and disembarkation were the worst part of the trip. It took a long time and I felt sorry for older people and those with small children waiting so long in line. The entertainment was very good. We saw Priscilla, Burn the Floor and the comedians three times. I found the air conditioning very cold and as I spent a ...

Epic failure

Took family to see the Caribbean. Returned from our seven day cruise on the Norwegian Epic Saturday and it was truly an epic failure. Right from the beginning it was off to a bad start and it never recovered. We were hours late boarding and not one offer of an apology or explanation. The ship could have been so majestic but it really isn’t taken care of. It’s filthy and things are broken and ...

We went on a the Norwegian Jade a few years ago as a family for spring break and really enjoyed it. This year we went on the Epic which was somewhat larger. Overall, it was a very positive experience. The food was excellent but the entertainment was not good at all. We did not have many family friendly options which was a disappointment. The dance show was sexually inappropriate. There was a sign ...
