1-10 of 309 Norwegian Epic Cruise Reviews for Gourmet Food Cruises to Europe from Rome (Civitavecchia)
The Epic has great food and bartenders, entertainment was good and many music venues to choose from. There is always something going on on board and plenty of lounge chairs to just relax if that’s what you are looking to do. The specialty dinners were terrific and worth the money.
The only downside is the size of the cabins are good for two passengers we had were three in a rear facing balcony ...
We selected the Epic for our Mediterranean tour, starting in Rome (Civitavecchia). Experience on the ship was very satisfying. Many bars with singers/activities all day and night. Food on the Epic was very good with 2 separate but equal dining rooms or the Garden Buffet, and many specialty restaurants (I did not try). I was glad that they opened the buffet until 11:30 PM for late snacks. The ...
Back home just last week from my first Norwegian cruise aboard the Epic. I had an amazing holiday thanks to the lovely, friendly people that I met on board. Would I cruise again with the Epic though? Don’t think so.
I’ll start by mentioning the positive points about the ship that made my trip enjoyable.
The ship is clean, well maintained and the decor is sublime.
Very hard working crew. ...
I chose this cruise as a short getaway. As this is a mega-ship and relatively modern I was expecting something great. Unfortunately it was a let down in almost all areas.
The ship itself is in very poor shape. The outside is rusty and the crew were white-washing the hull when we were docked. The carpeting is threadbare in many areas, particularly the theatre and lounges. The furniture in most ...
I felt the need to write a review after seeing so many negative ones prior to sailing. There were some negative experiences but overall it was a great trip and I would book with NCL again.
Reduced Airfare - this was a great deal to fly from Newark to Rome for only $400. Our biggest issue was they wouldn’t let us change our arrival or departure date so we were not able to spend time in Rome. We ...
After reading some reviews on this site i was apprehensive about the cruise, but soon realized, that people complaining about this cruise are crazy!
My Solo Cabin was very comfortable, and had more space than i expected!
The Solo Lounge is a great place to relax, and make new friends. It was always stocked with refreshments and basic breakfast food.
I didn't think i would - but i loved ...
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)
- The best entertainment you had to pay for.
- All drinks except water you had to pay for. (other ships I have sailed with let you get a soda or lemonade or something similar with your ...
My wife and I just completed an Eastern Med Cruise on the Norwegian Epic. We have done a number of NCL cruises, and this was our first on the Epic.
The food in the Garden Cafe was good and we ate all of our on board meals there. Gluten free options were not marked and we found no gluten free desserts or breads. A posted sign indicated that you need to request gluten free bread, but all there ...
We chose the cruise for the timing and itinerary. We doubted our choice because of the size of the ship. While we still prefer the 2500 passenger size we didn’t feel completely overwhelmed by the size.
We did however hate the bed...my husband is 6’2 and his feet stuck over the edge of the curvy design so he ended up sleeping down the middle...not so great! We also really missed the promenade ...
We choose this cruise because of the itinerary. Also because it was a good deal with the drink package included.
Getting on and off the boat was very quick and seamless. That part seemed very organized. Even the tender in Cannes was not all that bad. But we didnt have any tours for the day, so it didnt matter when we got off the ship.
Overall it was ok. Our room was old looking but ...
