  1. Sailing Norwegian for the 1st time- Epic in February. Not sure I totally understand freestyle cruising, but I'm excited to try it. Any tip/tricks I should know about Norwegian? What's your favorite thing about NCL?
  2. We will be on the Epic Stateroom 10276 Accessible (Aft) in the New Year and have a question: It doesn't look like we can take the aft elevators and get to 5th floor Taste or Guest Services. Would have to go to forward elevators and then back to Taste or is there another way? Any other logistical concerns for a scooter on the Epic?
  3. We will be doing the 10 day Southern Caribbean on Feb. 5. Anybody have some dailies to share? Thanks, Lisa
  4. Like to know what movies are showing on the EPIC and where?
  5. HI I tried to search for this answer with no luck. I am wondering how early we can board Epic in San Juan? 9pm is the departure time. When I did the online check-in, I had to pick a time and got the 1:30 slot for boarding. I am used to boarding around noon time on other cruise lines but have never been on a cruise that leaves so late. Any info would be appreciated. Thanks!
  6. Hi all, second attempt at this as my first post was several weeks prior to the Epic moving to do cruises from San Juan, which starts tomorrow Dec 8th I believe. If anyone going on the Epic from San Juan could post a picture of the Viva Vino Wine List that would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
  7. Hi, I am looking for the hours for the thermal spa on Epic. I would love to take advantage of the spa very early in the mornings (maybe 6:30-7 am). I thought I saw the spa does not open until 8am. Appreciate any insight!
  8. I am booked on my 1st NCL Cruise 03/08/2020. I checked the boards and still cant find anything to do in St.John and St.Lucia and Tortola. I booked 2 things in Barbados and St.Thomas. I dont want to spend a fortune. I like to book on my own.What tours have you done? Any info will help.
  9. This is a supplement to the "hull balcony" listing that I provided here: http://boards.cruisecritic.com/showthread.php?t=1522322 Because of the shape of the Epic there are a fair number of balconies that are not covered by the balcony of the room above it (say that sentence fast 3 times). Sun worshipers may seek out these rooms due to the greater amount of sun on the balcony, but the downside is that these balconies are viewable from above and do not offer much/any privacy. From what I can tell, all of these open balconies are on the 8th and 9th decks. An additional issue with the
  10. This will be my very first NCL cruise, sailing on the Epic round-trip Rome in May 2020. A few questions if I may? Which dining venues are included in the cruise price and what cuisine do they offer? Is one of the cafes included? We took the beverage package as the free-at-sea perk - I understand that coffees are not included. On the other hand I read in the forum that O'Sheehan's is open 24/7 and has free coffee -- what coffee is served there? If a cafe is included in the complimentary dining, do you have to pay for coffee? Thank you in advance.
  11. I have read many posts about the bathroom setup for an inside cabin on Epic, cat 1C but all I seem to find are comments about the “weird” setup. Please help! What exactly does that mean? I am putting this out there but if I use the toilet and DH is in the room is there not a door to the toilet room? I am okay with the sink in the room but there comes a time when I want privacy when on the toilet 🚽 Thanks in advance for all answers
  12. Hi all. We’ll be on Epic with our 16yo DD in April. DH and I have the 3-night SDP as one of our perks. We don’t have a lot of experience with NCL and have a few questions about getting the most bang for the buck. 1) Should we get a package for DD or just pay as we go with her? Does that make things complicated? Every time I’ve looked, the price has been $118 (including gratuity) for the 3-night package, which seems expensive. Are there ever sales? 2) We want to see the Cirque show. Standard seating is $24.99/person, and there’s a $10 surcharge if we use the SDP there. A
  13. My husband and I sailed a few year's ago on this ship and never had a chance to buy the mini ship. Does anyone know how I could acquire one? I'd like to add it to my collection of ships. It has to come from the ship itself. We've already contacted NCL directly and they could not help us. We've even looked on line in such places like let-go, facebook market place, EBAY....no luck. If anyone has any idea of how I can buy one directly from the ship, I'd be open to suggestions. Thank you in advance.
  14. I know on Gem class that the Italian restaurant is near the buffet and can be used for overflow seating for breakfast and lunch. Is there anywhere like that on the Epic where someone can go to avoid some of the chaos? First time on a mega-mega ship. Hints on other quiet places would be nice too.
  15. Hi, Which is the best cabin location for a H9 Haven SPA Suite on the Encore? They are all on deck 14 and deck 15 has the water park and the climbing wall. Appreciate your feedback. Thanks
  16. Is there a bar that is similar to the Spinnaker with sunset views for pre dinner drinks on the Epic?
  17. Any returning passengers from the Southern Caribbean with Dalies to share?
  18. I booked a Sail away balcony on Epic and assigned Cabin #10013. Later, I learnt that it is a PrivaSea/Hull cabin. The balcony is enclosed, so, some people don't like it. It worries me. Today, i found that price for mini suite dropped. I might be able to upgrade to sail away mini suite for only $80/ppl. I am wondering if all mini suites have regular balcony and where and which floor they are located. Should I go ahead to upgrade it? What differences between a balcony and mini suite on Epic? Thanks for any comments.
  19. I seem to recall reading that the Haven experience is somewhat different on Epic. However, I cannot recall what the differences are. Is Haven on Epic better? Not better? What differences are there?
  20. I am looking for the brand name of soap, lotion, bath products used in the Haven on the Epic. We had stayed in a 2 bedroom suite and my daughter in law loved the products. I am looking to purchase some as a gift if I can figure out the name of the brand.
  21. 1. If I want to just be able to drink diet coke - what drink package should I order on the Epic? 2. I am booked in a balcony cabin. Are the towels large and plush and if not will the cabin steward provide us with extra towels or should we bring our own extras?
  22. Have travelled with Norwegian in the past and they weren't that great with the gluten free, very basic. Do they have a designated cooking area?
  23. We are currently in horrific horrific standstill traffic trying to get into the port. Many people have walked off the ships dragging bags. Our taxi guy is saying heard there were deaths on one of the ships,,, 5 people he heard. Now we are seeing news cameras and ambulances. Still stuck and not sure what’s happening. Has anyone heard anything? We are still stuck In gridlock and returning cruisers cant get taxis and are dragging luggage down the long road. Praying for any impacted people if they have in fact died.
  24. Question for anyone who can answer. On the Epic 4/4-4/11/2020 out of Miami. Ship comes in from San Juan on 4/1, so no sailings for 3 days. Then does a TA on 4/18. Does this indicate a change in crew? Not real concerned, will have a good time regardless. Just wondering
  25. At one time I thought I read there was no hair dryer in the Epic studio cabins. Can anyone tell me if this is so? I'll be on a Southern Caribbean cruise in January and I would sure hate to have to add a hair dryer to my luggage.
