Norwegian Epic Tips

the ship itinery was excellent . it would show who and what going on. my suggestion for first timers is to bring your luggage aboard with them so they can change and be comfortable and not wait till 6pm for the luggage to arrive by staff, theyre to many passenger to expect luggage to be in room.
We wish the ship would have allowed us to buy pictures at a later date online. They are very expensive and most of the time at the end of the ship you have spent all your money. We know we would have bought online at a later time if we had the opportunity to do so.
Get a room near the front, the forward elevator goes right into the buffet, and don't miss the free liquor tasting each night at 8, they give out increasingly better scotch in the liquor shop each night.
Go to dinner early to avoid a wait at taste and manhattan
The customer service managers and the staff need more training. The morale is low. We only met one staff at the Manhattan restaurant who was cheerful. He was from Philippine on a master program for internship . Most of the staff was not well trained and was not happy.
Bring extra hangers. They have quite a few in each room but a few extra is always needed. As well, bring a closet freshener. You will know what I mean when you open the doors. Packing your bathing suit in your carry-on is a must as your suitcase will most likely not be there before supper.
The buffet on the ship had incredible variety, although we never ate dinner there. Also, don't miss the Cirque dinner show and get the premium seats. Sit in balcony if you can. Amazing!!
If you're looking to have some alcohol during the cruise, definitely look into one of the beverage packages.
Deck 18 has a really cool private sun area with couches and sunbeds.
Do see the Blue Mans Show, Plan on going to activities around 7-8pm or you will miss out as most activities happen then.

Cruise Reviews

This was our second time sailing with NCL and the first time sailing the Mediterranean.  We booked our cabin within the Haven and could not be happier that we did.  The only way to cruise.

Ok to whomever reads these reviews ! Just got off norwegian epic and a first time cruiser with norwegian ,this is my review compared to Carnival. Totally unbiased as I don't pay for my cruises as they are given to me from the land based casinos! All I pay is taxes and upgrades ! First hands down this ship has blown away any carnival ship I have ever gone on as far as public environment and ship atmosphere . The food was excellent I felt spoiled as I had the dining plan for the entire cruise which I purchased at time of booking ! It sucked for other guests becouse management saw they would not make as much money offering this so they discontinued it however honored ours but not all ship guests could get it ! Not fair to rest of people ! Many nice restaurants to choose from with this plan too . As compared too the lessee in quality of carnival of standard choices . Epics buffet more Beutiful but food not as good there especially the eggs Benedict . Enough said on food. Epic has headliners club very disappointed they did not pick up new comedian for this club at ever port like carnival did would have been very nice ! No comedian at all that I saw just a singer . So I had a suite and yea not having the private bath really ducked compared too my suite on carnival . My cousin would actually leave and take a poo daily in public restrooms . Who should have to do that !! The showering was not much an issue . Now as a gambler I loved this ship , for one Cash in tickets out was great! No bs to your on board account where on carnival that is only option, they had free drink cards for me at embarkation, where as carnival made me play many day before I got them . And believe me they know the player I am ! Jerks . Nice recognition casino staff epic . Also Oliver casino manager picked up $250 of my house charges for my play at end of cruise and my spa acess . Way to go Oliver . But in general my staff experience was far better on carnival than epic . I do think norwegian should start a morning tv show like carnival has its a nice start of the day ! I left epic on my worst feeling that they really were not hospitable and really were out to squeeze ever last penny out of you when front desk would not help me check in my airline. That's a common courtesy I get at every hotel I have ever gone and carnival gives you free access to airline sites at Internet cafe ! Prob would have cost me $20 to sign on and do it on epic with the fees and rates . So it's all norwegian again for me but I learned that I will put a list of demands with my casino management such as euro exchange for free if they want my 10-20 Grand gambling dollars win or lose By the way felt more luckier on this epic ship as I hit several jackpots on slots than I very did on carnival , except hitting big on table games with carnival! Fair and balanced folks sorry for so long ! Just a more rich plush look all around !
