This would probably have to be the most unique cruise I have ever been on.

Epic honeymoon cruise

Jun 20th, 2020

Our cruise hit a lot of trouble and was delayed badly. We boarded one day late and spent two days in Port before we left while repairs took place. Which messed up our honeymoon. However we were well compensated. (50% refund and 50% future credit)The communication after the ship hit trouble and leading up to the cruise itself was awful and the helpline was the worst customer service I've ever seen so be warned and we were seriously considering whether we would ever trust NCL again. However once we were on the boat the staff couldn't do enough to help us. Definitely their saving grace. The only thing we weren't sure about were the strange cabin design. We would definitely cruise NCL again but I wouldn't use the Epic again.

Good, but could have been better

The port on this cruise were great! The ship is getting a bit old and dated, and the staff on this ship was not as friendly as they were on the last ship (Bliss). Overall, it was a great trip.

This was supposed to be fun and relaxing- not fun! Excursions were great, but Norwegian doesn’t care about their guests red job

Nice Cruise

Apr 18th, 2020

Norwegian is my favorite cruise line. I always have lots of fun, great food and great service. I really didn’t get to enjoy the amenities on the ship because they were just too many people. I think if I had a longer cruise I would’ve enjoyed it more, because I would’ve had more time to explore. I prefer the smaller ships. But I still had a great time. If given the chance again I would cruise on the ship, but for a longer selling so that I could really explore everything and enjoy everything. I highly recommend the cirque du Soleil style dinner show, that was awesome and worth every penny. I do not recommend the ice bar, it’s a waste of money and the drinks are nasty. All in all this is a great ship for young people and families. This is not a ship for an older elderly crowd or people that like a more sophisticated fancy atmosphere

Almost Phenomenal

Mar 23rd, 2020

This was our 9th NCL cruise since 2016. We only booked this back in early February 2020 due to the low price (even lower a week + after we booked), but mainly for the itinerary that was awesome. We are a glass half-full couple that make the best of our time off while on vacation. NCL really makes our decision to continue using them in the future more and more each cruise we take with them.

Very nice trip through the ABC islands, second time on the Epic although it is a quirky ship we still had a great time.
