Not NCL best

I will start out with the positive... getting onto the ship was a breeze. The last time we sailed from NY it was a complete disaster so I was super pleased with the level of professionalism and efficiency from all ...

Pretty good with excellent potential.

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 ...

Not an Epic Fail

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. ...

Had a wonderful time

We had fabulous weather. The ports were very nice and of course the crew were exceptional as always on a NCL ship. However, the ship is too large and too crowded to really give everyone the attention they ...

Nearly everything was lame, late or super hard to get.

We wanted this cruise because the balcony rooms and being able to go to St. Thomas. We did have a balcony room, and I can say I enjoyed the room, even if the layout is strange. That was about the only ...

March 2019 cruise

We choose this cruise because we had taken the Alaskan cruise on the Norwegian Pearl and had a wonderful time. The cruise was not worth the money we had to pay. First there were problems with the ship which delayed ...

Disappointing overall

My husband and I had cruised once before, with another cruise line, on a big ship similar to the Epic. We wanted to give Norwegian a shot just to make sure we weren't missing anything. Embarkation was very smooth ...

Epic Letdown

Was going to call this Epic Fail, but everyone else will. I will start with the good because I’m sure plenty of reviews will focus on the negative. This was our second cruise, both on Norwegian. The food was as ...

Oh Norwegian ... where do I start?

Well I will start by saying that I am not typically the type to complain, but Norwegian left us less than impressed. The biggest issue was that the boat seemed way understaffed. Since the drink package wasn't ...

We had sailed on Regal Princess last year and had a wonderful time. As soon as we returned, we booked a cruise with our kids on Carnival for March 2018. After a few weeks, we decided we didn't want to wait two ...

An OK cruise with some definite highlights.

The cruise we chose was a 14 day Western & Eastern Caribbean. In fact it was two one week cruises and we had to disembark at the end of the first week and then embark for the second cruise. This process was slow and ...

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 ...
