We chose this because of the nine ports, and all of them were interesting... a perfect way to get to see such islands as Malta and Rhodes... places we would otherwise never get to see. Sadly Valetta was crowded and streets were closed ... Read more

We chose this cruise because our friends are big NCL fans. Even they were disappointed. We liked the itinerary, with the exception of the port at Messina, Sicily. This port city is run down and we could not find a way to get to other, more ... Read more

We had originally selected this cruise because of the itinerary & great price. After reading reviews our expectations were set very low; however, we were pleasantly surprised! We loved the ship. The staff, Crew & service were ... Read more

We chose this ship because we had previously had two wonderful experiences on the NCL Getaway and Escape and wanted this particular med. itinerary. Usually, I would travel on a ship older than 5 years, but we knew it had been refurbished ... Read more

We chose this cruise as it was the best alternative to a cruise which was cancelled earlier. The best ports were Livorno and Barcelona. The other ports were OK but would have preferred others (Venice and Santorini). I heard complaints ... Read more

We chose a cruise in the Mediterranean as we both like history and culture a lot. My boyfriend as a passion for the roman empire and I love seeing new places and people and learning about them. It was our first cruise and we were ... Read more

This was my first cruise, although my partner has been on one cruise before, in the Caribbean. I really enjoyed my first cruise experience. Embarkation was fine once we had managed to get to the ship, having walked all the way from the ... Read more

We chose this cruise for our honeymoon because of the itinerary and the price point. We were impressed with some aspects, but others left much to be desired. The room itself (10588) was in a great location, but there were constant ... Read more

Our 2nd cruise on the Spirit. We chose this ship again because it is smaller and more sophisticated than some of the larger ones that have water parks , and fairground rides. We are a couple in our 50s and we love the customer ... Read more

I've cruised on another Norwegian ship as I love Italy and the Mediterranean and this cruise took me to places I hadn't visited. The price was right too. We landed in Rome the day before and spent some time on the hop on hop off buses. ... Read more

We picked this cruise because we like NCL and we wanted to start and end in Rome. A stop in Marseilles was also important. NCL treated us well. We used none on the NCL sponsored shore excursions and booked all our own tours with others ... Read more

Itinerary was superb, weather was glorious and excursions booked through outside vendors were amazing. The NCL Spirit is a ship needing to go to drydock for serious updating. Cabins are small, balconies even smaller (knees hit glass as ... Read more

NCL Epic was sailing to the ports we wanted to visit, on the schedule we wanted, at a cost we were happy with. We are previous NCL cruisers. The first thing we encountered was a very swift registration process at the dock in ... Read more

The cruise chose me and not vice versa and it came with the package of the travel agency. We were skeptical at the beginning since we had bad experience in the Bahamas in a cheap claustrophobic cabin. Was pleasantly surprised this time ... Read more

Wonderful region of the world to visit, must see spots (with the exception of Nice, we were not impressed at all). The other cities were all amazing. I'm not usually impressed by cruse ships but when I walked on board the Epic I was very ... Read more

Choose the cruise because it had some single people going. Room was OK, but the studio lounge was not inviting at all. I did enjoy the freedom to dine when and where I wanted to. Breakfast buffet was very annoying by the 3rd day. Totally ... Read more

This was only our 2nd cruise, with our 1st also being on an NCL Ship (Escape) in 4/2016. We planned for 2 weeks away with our Mediterranean cruise in the middle of our trip. The days of departure/arrival worked well with our plans. We ... Read more

We picked this cruise because of it offered a good itinerary and the schedule worked for us. When I booked I did not realized NCL Epic was such a huge ship (4200 passengers). After reading the reviews prior to leaving I was concerned ... Read more

We have never taken a Norwegian cruise before and we will never take one again. We have cruised with Princess and Royal Caribbean. We were shocked by the constant nickel and diming on this cruise. So many things were an extra cost, ... Read more

To hit the positives, this was an awesome itinerary. Rome to Dubai with hassle free stops in Middle Eastern countries that would be very difficult to reach any other way. So I would give them 5 stars for itinerary and transportation. ... Read more

The itinerary was truly spectacular. A "bucket list" for us and our traveling companions. For us, every port from Cyprus to Dubai was a new adventure, and even several ports in Italy and Greece offered new experiences. [The ... Read more
