  1. Just booked Epic Haven Courtyard penthouse 17009. I know some of these rooms have solarium type balcony with a little window but it looks like this one might have an open one. Anyone know? First time in Haven!! Sent from my iPhone using Forums
  2. So I’m looking at booking a B2B well kinda. I’m already booked on RC Freedom in Jan 2021 out of Puerto Rico. Jan 31st - Feb 7th And was thinking about booking the Epic for when we get back on the Freedom. Feb 7 - Feb 14th. It visits 2 of the same cities as the Freedom, but I’m ok with that. So your thought on the Epic. And suggestions for a good Mini Suite cabin would be appreciated.
  3. We got to San Juan a couple days early and stayed at Casa Blanco in Old San Juan very nice we explored a little. We left from San Juan march 8th supposed to be a 7 night Cruise Sunday we pull into San Juan they didnt want us.Long story short we headed to port Cape Canaveral 2 days Later Everyone was healthy and we got off. The ship was great.Free Alcohol and Food. a couple extra days. All and all great cruise. I will update a little more Shortly.
  4. Anyone have an update from the Epic? Supposed to be in Puerto Rico this morning?
  5. Posting for my husband, who was most perturbed on our last cruise on the Sky, when there wasn't one. He had to play 3 card poker instead and complained that he lost all of his money way too quickly!! 🤣
  6. Just off the Epic this morning. A beautiful ship! After reading several reviews, not finding all the negative points that others complained about. Lots of seating around the ship, never had trouble finding a seat. Embarkation: Our check in time was 2pm. We arrived at Pier at 12:15, and were on the ship at 12:35pm! No lines, no waiting. Rooms were not ready until 2pm. We ate at The Great Outdoors and enjoyed the music from the band on the pool deck. Food: We ate at Taste every evening. We found a waiter the first night who took to our 10 year old son, and equated him each n
  7. My wife and I are going on the Epic and April. We are wondering what the dress code is for the 2 specialty restaurants we are going to. We are going to Cagney's Steakhouse and La Cucina Italian Restaurant. Thanks for any info!
  8. Wow! What a cheap cruise on the Epic! I'm shocked that they are not charging a single supplement fee either for a non studio cabin! Is there issues with the Epic? Wish I had vacation time! Lol!
  9. Sorry this one has been a little late coming - with Christmas and the NY following it I didnt get round to putting it together till later than usual and find I must now catch up as we have another cruise in a couple of weeks. I'll post as quickly here as I can but you can keep in front and see all the photos on the usual blog entry. NCL Epic - Transatlantic 2019 - Part 1 Barcelona - Palma Mallorca - Gibraltar Day 1 Barcelona The Norwegian Epic - often referred to as the marmite of cruise ships she is certainly one of a
  10. I'm trying to decide if I should keep my reservation for the Epic TA on 4/11/2021 from Miami to Barcelona. I'm in an H9 Spa Haven and have the premium beverage, internet, shore excursion credit & 5 night dining package. We also have flights from Detroit plus 2 day deviation at beginning and end and transfers from airport to the port. Our total price for 2 of us is 7200. I think this is a pretty good deal. These are the points making me second guess the reservation: The SPA cabins are in terrible location and there is alot of noise from the pool deck above. This is the only Ha
  11. Are there computers available for use on the Epic. I sail this weekend and may need to work a bit while on board and was hoping to not have to bring my laptop.
  12. We cruised on the NCL Epic in 2017 in the Caribbean and loved the White Party! We are booked on her again in October, boarding in Rome, Italy. Does anyone know if they will do the White Party on the 2020 Mediterranean route?
  13. My brother, sister, and their spouses frequently cruise together, but the timing never worked out for me to join them until last year when my brother said he and his wife had booked a cruise of the Southern Caribbean embarking January 26, 2020. January--a great time to leave a St. Louis winter. Then my sister and her husband signed up for it too, so I decided to find out just how good a time they've been having. The itinerary: Since they were booked on the Epic, that meant I could choose a studio cabin. The rooms looked inviting enough in photos and having the studio loung
  14. We will be on the Jan 31-Feb 7, 2021 sailing out of San Juan. We will be in a Haven DOS suite on deck 17. I’ve been reading threads and reviews of the Epic for months now. It seems to me that some of the most common complaints regarding the Epic will be less of an issue being in the DOS in the Haven. Especially the complaints about the bathroom layout, food quality(since we have the Haven restaurant), lack of views of ocean(have large balcony and access to Posh), lines(have concierge), etc.... So, I’m not too concerned about the negativity plus any cruise in the Caribbean in Jan/Fe
  15. If I don't want the Picture Package . Can I buy a couple? How much are they each?
  16. Just returned from 11 day cruise out of San Juan and will share a few of my thoughts. We arrived around 3 pm and we’re able to walk right in and on to the ship. This was good as there is no place to sit in the terminal. Also good as our room was immediately ready. We had a standard balcony. Having been on Epic before, I was aware of bathroom situation which did not bother me. Room had adequate storage and a balcony which was larger than Breakaway class. Wish they would get rid of ,or downsize, that monstrosity of a sofa which takes up way too much room.
  17. We have a total of 64 people in our group next Saturday for the EPIC cruise out of San Juan. Many are first time cruisers. How strict are they at the dock when it comes to scheduled boarding times? We have smaller groups of 6-10 that want to head over together and board together, but some have 12:30 pm boarding and 2 of them have 3:30 boarding. Will the two be sent away until 3:30, or are they pretty flexible with the scheduled boarding? I've seen it both ways, but didn't know how it would be in San Juan at the Pan Am pier. Any thoughts?
  18. I just upgraded from a Solo to a Balcony (little nervous about quarantines). Just curious if anyone has been in cabin 14070? Seems to be blocked in a corner? Also, does the bump closer to the door on the deck plan mean the bed is by the balcony?
  19. I am helping my parents plan a cruise on the Epic in September out of Barcelona. Myself and my mom have cruised with NCL before and have both enjoyed the Vibe. I know that the Epic has Posh, which is primarily for Haven guests, but a few passes are sold to the masses upon embarkation. I am looking for up-to-date info on Posh. Do they still sell a small amount of passes? Anyone know what the average number of passes available is when sailing in the Mediterranean? What is the price/person/week? Where are they purchased on board? With a sail away of 6pm, at what time does check in begin and how e
  20. Sailing on the Epic and have seen the bathroom/shower/sink configuration. I am not overly concerned, but wondering if there is some way to cover the doors of the toilet and shower so that they are not as opaque? Can you hang something in front of or over the door? I understand there is a curtain that you can pull to close off that area, but just wanted to know if anyone has any other suggestions. Thanks! 🚿🚽
  21. Hi folks. Our Epic sailing in March stops in St. Thomas on the final day. Can anyone tell me what port we'll be using?
  22. Hi All! Doing a TA in April on the Epic. Is it true that there is no bulk laundry service, eg. a bag of a certain weight for a particular price? This type of service has been available on other cruise lines (Celebrity, Royal Caribbean, Holland America). NCL said they charge a minimum of $1.25 for each piece, even underwear and the cost just escalates from there. Is it $ feasible to do laundry on a 15 day cruise? I understand that you can do underwear in the sink...but the thought of wet underwear hanging in the cabin is not a pleasant one. Hate to have to bring enough of every
  23. We will be on the Epic in a month and my husband will be doing dialysis in the cabin. We have this arranged with NCL, but I just had one of those moments... Do the outlets in the cabins (we will be a Haven 2-bedroom suite) have three prongs or only two? I know NCL will provide an extension cord if needed, but if we decide to bring our own is that okay as long as it doesn't have surge protection? My husband needs to confirm some final details before we cruise, so we'll ask about this then, but I'm hoping someone here has some knowledge of the outlets (I don't always trus
  24. Hey everyone! I have loved the live reviews so much and I know others really get a kick out of them. It’s a little early, we don’t cruise until Sunday but we (husband and I) leave on Friday for San Juan. Epic 11 Day from San Juan! Background- This will be our 4th Cruise, all with NCL. This is our second time on the Epic and second time to the Caribbean but not this southern itinerary. All the ports are new to us! I’m 31 and my husband is 32. We are child free and both work extremely demanding jobs. We live outside of Seattle.(It has rained almost everyday this month
