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

Lots of changes I did not like on this cruse.  I had only one Great meal, a 2" T-Bone.  Fish & Chips and hamburgers at O'Shannons were also highlights. Overall, the breakfast menu was outstanding overll, with the best varity of food. I do have to comment the staff ooverll.  I have a handicap nd they helped me with assistqance thru the lines.  Entertainment was OK.  The Comedy Club had no comedian.  The best act was Circus ???? Overall the cruise was GOOD at best.  I think I will try another Cruise Line next time.

We were on a b2b cruise in January from Barcelona to Morocco etc. although the ship is not our favorite one, we liked the cruise. The ports were interesting. The tours were overpriced, but we had researched that before leaving home, so we were prepared. We also booked tours with outside companies that helped reduce the cost. (Check out Said in Morocco. Fabulous.). The food was great and our server excellent. (You do know that if you find a server you like, you can ask to sit in their section. ) The shows were the best we've seen on a cruise ship. The typical things to do, like the newlywed game, deal or no deal, are a bit too sophomoric for us. But that's ok because there is always something else to do. Even if that means hunting out a chair in a lounge and reading. The one thing I hate about this ship is the customer service desk is next to the big screen. The screen is almost always on full sound making it very hard to communicate with the service desk people, especially if their English understanding is not great. A tip for any cruise line is to check the location of your cabin. We didn't do that for the 2nd part of our cruise and ended up over the thrusters. Very noisy and shaking while docking. It would always wake us up, sometimes at 4:00am. But that was our fault.
