Nickel and Dimed...

1. Nickel And Dimed: I felt like everything was extra money after I paid for my cruise. - The app to message people around the ship was $10. - Most of the restaurants you had to pay for ($40-$50/person) - ...

No too bad!

I'll start with the things I enjoyed about about the ship. 1) I enjoyed the drink package! But, sometimes the wait at the bars were crazy. It was tolerable but could have been better. 2) The balcony view. It ...

Great Ship- Great Staff- but what a mess.

The smoke on deck 6 made us sick, had to see the onboard doctor, which really messed up our cruise. We love the Cavern club, but it was so packed that we couldn't enjoy it. People went to the show before and just ...

Second chance, and the last time!

This was our second Norwegian Cruise- the first was on Norwegian Sky which was a terrible experience as well but we blamed the weather for the most part. We have been on almost a dozen of other cruises between ...

Slightly below average.

Overall a very mediocre experience on a quick 3-day trip. I can honestly say that with the exception of the BBQ on the private Cay on day 2 every meal was just bad. Just really quite bad. Excessively greasy and ...

Review of NCL EPIC

I chose this cruise because it was a 3 day (perfect for my home situation--care giver). It was a great price for a balcony suite (that's what they call it--to me it was just a balcony room with lots of storage ...

Studio rooms, Dining, Entertainment and more

I choose this cruise because it offered studio rooms. The room was adorable. I loved it. It was very small , but fine for one person. The lighting could be adjusted to three different levels so even tho it was an ...

Ship too big; not enough staff

First off, we were unable to locate anyone from NCL at airport to assist with luggage and prepaid transfer from the airport, Embarkation was ok. Getting on board no problems. The balcony cabin was strange to say ...

Good first experience

This was my first cruise and the price was more than right! The cabin was better than I expected. The storage is actually really good. The layout is odd with no door between sleeping area and the bathroom. Beds ...

Nice Amenities but Crowded & Understaffed

I was attending a convention, so I did not choose this ship myself. I am typically not interested in very large ships, but was looking forward to having the opportunity to experience some of the amenities that only ...

WAY TOO BIG FOR ME

We chose this cruise because our car club wanted to go someplace warm together. The Epic was chosen because of the itinerary and cruise length. The wife and I had never been on what I would call a "Mega-Ship" ...

Initial Impression of Norwegian Cruise Lines

This cruise was sponsored by Park West Gallaries VIP program, consequently I can't comment on the value of the cruise, other than they were correct, this was the most expensive free cruise my wife and I ever taken. ...

Epic highs and lows

My family went on the Nickelodeon cruise July 24, 2011, and while the ship was impressive, I wouldn't recommend this cruise to others. Most of the staff seems to have been taught the importance of doing their jobs, ...

Ports of call where the reason I selected the ship. I didn't explore Barcelona as much as I would have liked due to jet lag. I didn't know that I could have selected the port to start my cruise. Had I known this, ...
