  1. We sailed the Epic from Barcelona, to Italy and France and loved it! Only one sea day. Would sail that again!
  2. I booked once on board, I will never do it again. I brought all the information with me, including the room I wanted. As soon as I got home I had to cancel and rebook. The Cruise Next staff are more oriented for selling certificates. They aren't cruise consultants. They were not up to speed with the perks and they kept telling me the cabin I wanted was not available, but I eventually booked it when I got home. I my opinion, wait until you get home.
  3. The following is a quick review of the Escape, 7-day, western Caribbean Jan 25 to Feb 1, 2020 We are baby boomers with Platinum status. 13th NCL cruise, but first time on the Escape. Embarkation: Super fast. Arrived at the pier at 10:45 AM, we were on board at 11:06 AM. Disembarkation: Again, really fast! We waited for Yellow luggage tags to be called (right after Walk Offs) and we were in the Uber before 8:00 AM. The freestyle said to pick-up luggage tags after 3:00 PM on Friday however by 12:30 they were out and getting picked through! To get the Yellow tag (for Platinum
  4. I do a mock booking on line before calling NCL to book the reservation (so I know which room I want and the price). When they pull up your account, they will see the Cruise Next credits you own.
  5. Having cruised twice on the Epic, I totally agree with your assessment. As for the bathrooms, we always pick a room with the bed closer to the balcony and away from the bathroom.
  6. We have watched a few Super Bowls on NCL ships and have decided that we would rather be home. A few issues: You don't get the commercials. Few if any pre game coverage. The last time there were pretty bad audio problems. Seating can be an issue. Get to the Atrium early to get a decent seat.
