First cruise

|

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 ...

Complete disaster

We chose this cruise because it was the one my cousin picked for their 10yr anniversary. They chose this cruise because it went to St Thomas, which is where they went on their honeymoon. Boarding was delayed ...

Had heard so many negative reviews......

I was so pleasantly surprised at how much I loved the Epic after reading so many reviews of people who didn't. The "bathroom situation" turned out great. I was traveling with a friend and we simply pulled the ...

Fun Couples Cruise with Friends

We chose this cruise because of the convenience of Port Canaveral and the ports of call. The Epic, while not the most beautiful ship, offered lots of dining and entertainment options. I think it is better suited ...

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, ...

Epic fail, terrible food, poor air quality

This was my much anticipated first cruise. The first day of the trip I spent an agonizing 5 hours freezing aboard ship. By dinner, I was too cold to stay in the dining room and spent the rest of the evening in my ...

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" ...

Service was awful from the moment we checked in at Port Canaveral to the last day. Most of the staff was unfriendly, lacked a smile and just rude. We had bad weather day 2, yet Norwegian shut down all outdoor ...

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 ...
