  1. It looks like yesterday Epic moved to Marseille from La Seyne-sur-Mer where it was docked for a while. Is it a sign that she is going to be refurbished according to the original schedule?
  2. I've booked a large balcony room (12165) on Epic for summer 2021. Looking for opinions of the large balcony mid-ship rooms.
  3. Hello NCL Cruisers... So after 4 cancelled cruises, I am giving up and planning a ways out now. Looking at some transatlantics on the Epic in the Haven. I was in the Haven for my first cruise on the Joy and LOVED it. I really value my space in the stateroom. On the Joy, I have a forwarding facing suite...loved having a living space and then bedroom space. The table for breakfast, etc... When I look at the Epic, the suites are oddly shaped (HF-The Haven Courtyard Penthouse with Balcony). Round bed in the middle of the room, bathroom appears to be open.
  4. Hi All, Have booked the first Epic sailing out of Barcelona April 25th 2021 all going well it goes ahead, the ship arrives after a transatlantic so i am wondering what happens.Long waits, crazy port etc. I have sailed out Barcelona 3 times on the Epic so i am familiar with the process but think things will be different after a TA This time we have only 3 nights booked and sailing in the Haven so should board smoothly but i am just wondering will things be rather hectic and should we avoid early arrival. Usually we like to head to port early and start our vacation early
  5. Just a quick note to say that on the TA in April 2022 both the Spa balcony cabins and the spa mini suites are showing as sold out because they have been recategorised without the spa access. We have just booked 14098 which used to be an M9 and is now an MA. Guess I'll have to buy a spa pass instead
  6. We hope to be sailing on the Epic in late 2021 in the Haven. I've been searching high and low for a menu for the Epic Haven Bar & Grill. This is the casual bar/restaurant just outside of the courtyard area on the Epic. I can't find the menu anywhere! I assume it's like O'Sheehan's, only more limited? If anyone has a lead or link to the mysterious menu, I'd appreciate it!
  7. What's your favorite 2-bedroom suite on the Epic? Prefer Deck 16. Thanks!
  8. Looking for feedback from anyone who stayed in this cabin. Is it noisy being right next to the door?
  9. We've had our eye on some Epic Mediterranean cruises in November 2021, but they seem to have disappeared from the NCL (and all other cruise booking sites) the past few days. These were the standard Barcelona/Rome 7 day trips. Currently, the only November voyage I'm seeing is the Transatlantic from Rome-NY at the end of the month. Any thoughts/info on this? Drydock? Charter cruise? Heading to the scrapyards? 😉
  10. Looking at 2022 Epic cruises, and see they are squeezing an extra port in to the itinerary. Instead of the usual day at sea on Monday they are going to Ajaccio in Corsica. Then for some reason mixing up the Naples and Rome days some weeks. Price compared to 2021 is a quite a bit more though, unless 2021 is artificially low to entice bookings.
  11. I just went to check on the availability of my 1st November cruise on Epic on the NCL website and found that both Epic and Jewel are missing from the list for both November and December
  12. I know cruise lines have many issues at the moment but wondered if the Epic dry dock in November is likely to go ahead?
  13. I booked a balcony room for a seven day cruise out of Rome in June 2022. I figure by that time, things shall hopefully be back to normal. However, I am traveling with my (will be) 21 year old son. I did not know that the Epic had such a strange bathroom setup. What have been others experiences with that bathroom setup? I am not really loyal to any particular cruise line. We have been on eight or so cruises and I still haven't sailed on the same ship more than once. So far, NCL has been the only cruise line that has fares out for Europe for 2022. With the low deposit, I figure I have time to c
  14. Does anyone know which level of cabins are covered? Are there any Club Suites that have larger decks or special locations that you prefer? I know there was previous discussion regarding which cabins have a tub versus a shower, but never found a firm answer. I enjoy the balcony, but prefer some privacy if possible. Thanks very much!
  15. We have booked this cruise, which is one of Epic's last of the season in the Med I believe. The Epic is currently in Miami and I know that P&O have announced cancellations until mid Oct, so the others could follow. What are the chances of NCL bringing the Epic over to Europe just for a few sailings? We have the chance to change our non refundable flights free of charge at the moment to another destination next year. Any thoughts?
  16. Hello! Have cabin 12071 on the Epic booked for January...do you think there will be a wind problem on on balcony? I'm wondering if I should book an Aft balcony, even if it costs more??? Only Aft's are on the 12th deck of the Epic....any problems with that deck? Thank you in advance for your help!
  17. Been checking out port Miami web cam just about every day. Why has Epic been at the pier for 5 days at least ? Most ships seem to be an overnight then gone next day.
  18. I am planning my retirement cruise for 2022. I want to go to the ABC Islands but need some information. #1 Is the Epic ship handicapped accesible for a scooter on most floors or is it chopped up?. #2 How far is the cruise port from the airport in San Juan? #3 Is San Juan a good port to cruise from for a person in a scooter and is there a rental facility to rent a scooter? Your answers will be greatly appreciated. Thank you
  19. Looking at booking our first NCL cruise for next Feb 2021. There is what I think a decent deal for an guarantee inside cabin for 2 - $2049 CDN. Thoughts on if this is a good deal? Will I regret booking a “guarantee” cabin? To pick our own cabin inside would be $2183 and balcony is $2933. Any guidance on staterooms or ship would be appreciated.
  20. My husband and I am trying to decide between the NCL Bliss to the Mexican Riviera or the NCL Epic to the Southern Caribbean for March 2021. We plan to book a Haven suite. Please give me your opinion of pros and cons of both ships and routes. The Epic is scheduled for dry dock so may be updated but I am not sure what will be done. The Bliss is relatively new, correct? Any advice would be welcomed. Thank you in advance for your input. Lisa
  21. 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
  22. 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.
  23. So I’m getting ready to book on the Epic for next year. And I’d like to try and get the best balcony I can in the BA section or? Im open to suggestions for a good balcony location like a corner location, Aft, forward . any and all suggestions are appreciated.
  24. 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
  25. 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
