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 ...

Booze cruise to PR

I was on the Epic Fail cruise of 2019. This cruise was best with problems that I mostly, luckily, avoided. I got to the terminal early and was checked in and seated in about 20 minutes total, very efficient. I was ...

Never again

This cruise was chosen by the group I was with. Terrible layout for the rooms - entry was in the middle of the bathroom. This made it awkward when ordering morning room service. Told it would be there in 30-45, ...

Understaffed but great destinations.

Embarkation was mass confusion. It made me think that this was the first time Norwegian did this. Chaos everywhere. The woman taking our picture for the card took way too long and the result was that we eventually ...

Too large and bureaucratic

About 50 members of my running group and my best friend chose to go on this cruise. Overall, I had a good time, but it was largely in spite of the service on the Epic. I suspect that they have built a ship that ...

Norwegian Epic 4-2013

This was our first NCL vacation and I had anticipated great times. The mini-suite cabin was difficult to move around in due to the curvy set-up. We expected a bathtub and had just a shower. The walls for the shower ...

Norwegian Epic- Not for the cruise expert

We booked this cruise with NCL directly. We have a 1 year old and a 2 year old. Yes, we were brave enough to start them cruising early! We were forced to obtain a balcony cabin, since there were no inside ...

The Epic Truth, the Whole Truth and Nothing But

This was our first NCL cruise and it will likley be our last. Overall, the Epic is crowded and casual and just not for us. Embarkation and debarkation was a breeze. However, from there we experienced some pros and ...

First time on NCL was disappointing

While the ship itself was very nice, that's where the pleasantries ended. I'm not sure if the staff was under trained, understaffed or just didn't care. There were many, many times we stood in line waiting to be ...
