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 ...

This was my 9th cruise, and the 3rd with NCL. My past NCL cruises were really great, especially on the Escape. The Epic is oddly designed, which creates a poor flow and an uninviting presence. For example, one main dining room, Taste, has been placed on the 5th floor in the middle of the ship. To get around Taste, you must go up an escalator to the 6th floor, and than stairs to get back down to ...

We choose this cruise for my daughters senior trip. Since it was spring break, we knew we would pay higher than normal rates, which is to be expected during spring break. We had fantastic weather the entire trip. The ship was well run and the staff was very pleasant. Our room was always made up and turned down as indicated on our door wheel. We never had to wait for our room to be ready. We were ...

First Time Cruiser • Age 40s

We were first time cruisers and picked NCL for the freestyle cruise option and free drink package. We should have done more research! The boat is very clean and most staff was very pleasant and helpful but are overworked. The kids program was terrible and more like a poor daycare with not much going on. Our kids hated it! Pools were small and if you weren’t up on the deck by 6 am you wouldn’t get ...

I chose this cruise because it sailed out of Port Canaveral & my Aunt turned 70 on the day we embarked. I'm only giving this 7 day Eastern Caribbean Cruise 3 stars because of the excellent service we received at La Bistro. Our server Fraizer D was so good & the Assistant Manager Edgar M was very nice. We decided to eat there twice. The food was fabulous & our room Stewart Aniket was always ...

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. ...

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 ...

I want to start this off by saying that this was our first cruise. We sailed with friends who have cruised several times previous and so we had expectations of what we would experience. We were super excited for this cruise, and were really amped for the experience. We did book through a travel agent, so I can't comment on ease of booking because we had a fantastic agent who took care of ...

Embarkation was quick as we were the last bus coming from airport. We heard the lines were extremely long prior to us boarding. Once onboard it was a little chaotic at first. Cabin was mid ship, starboard side. Close to elevators, only 2 elevator banks so this was a plus. We didn’t mind the layout of the cabin with toilet and shower separate it was convenient to get ready. We only did ...

This cruise was chosen by the parents of our honorary grandchildren, with whom we sailed, based on price and timing during school vacation. We've all been to both Tortola and St. Thomas before. We were overjoyed to be invited along, and were fortunate enough to win an upgrade to a balcony room. Unfortunately, There was no room in the room for my mobility scooter AT ALL. Indeed GETTING to the ...
