Fun Cruise!

Jul 17th, 2019

The Epic is a really nice ship that offers lots of options for dining and on-board activities. Do your homework for what you want to see and do in the ports. The only negative thing I can say about the Epic was my spa experience. I had a 75 minute massage scheduled. It happened to be during the time the ship was ready to leave a port. The noise from the engine propellers was awful and very annoying. I spoke with the spa manager about the experience (this was a 200.00 massage!) I explained that I was not comfortable or relaxed during the massage. I also mentioned that the music that was piped in was a "cosmic" genre of music and not a relaxing type one would be accustomed to when having a massage. I asked the spa manager to meet me halfway and charge me just 100.00 instead of 200.00. She said they would give me another massage for 30 minutes which I didn't want. Overall, the Epic was fantastic and I will be sailing on her again next February in the Caribbean!

Our cabin was $4200 and we couldn't even get complimentary water,,,very angry about this. Only my girlfriend got the $150 credit for booking excursions and not me. Yea,,,I will Never use Norwegian again. My family of 22 will take Royal Carribean from now on.

For a solo first time cruiser at 72 years of age I found the trip to be fine. Don't know that I will become a regular cruiser however.

Fun Mediterranean Cruise

Jul 10th, 2019

Fun, well-organized Med. cruise. Not great for pool time or lounging on the pool deck. But lots of high energy or entertaining participatory evening events. Karaoke, dueling pianos, dance parties. An assortment of venues for musical entertainment. Tremendous dining. And a lovely setting for dining options. Cabin is clean and the staff is mostly accommodating.

It was a dream of a week. Cannot speak highly enough of the entertainment provided, the food, drink and the service of NCL staff. The entertainers and musicians are top of their fields. I was blown away by the dancers in Burn the Floor and I would not normally go to such a show but this "blew me". The musicians in every bar e.g. Beatles, Elton John and Billy Joel tributes as well as others were outstanding. The pianists in Howl at the Moon, particularly the female pianist was brilliant and very witty although I would remind them, their audience is not just USA folk whom they pampered to. Staff very frienly in stateroom cleaning, bars and restaurants were very friendly although I think they are over worked in Taste and Manhattan as service could be slow but considering volumes, I would be slow to complain. H2O bar staff also overworked but they do some job again with the volumes.

Nice cruise.

Cruise line nickel and dimes you to death for the small things such as a coke with dinner and they confiscated any soft drinks you purchase on shore when you return to the ship (even our bottle of water). Confiscating our purchases as we returned to our ship left a bad taste in our mouths...we will probably not cruise again with this company.

First NCL cruise, probably our last. We are big on customer service and the crew is just not friendly. The itinerary made our trip worth it because we could get off every day.

Epic Cruise on Norwegian Cruise Line's Epic

Jun 30th, 2019

An Epic cruise ship for an epic cruise will make up for an epic time. Norwegian Cruise Line sets the bar when it comes to entertainment, drinks and restaurants. If you're looking for a great ship with a lot to do, Norwegian Epic will be a great idea to go with. Specialty dining options a vast so you won't feel like you're missing out. Don't regret on doing the All White Party at H20 Spice on Deck 15 in the back of the ship.
