  1. 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?
  2. I received luggage tags today (first time ever) and this enclosed note. ”The Norwegian Epic will not be ready for boarding until approximately 1:00pm. Check in will be held from 1:00pm-6:00pm Due to the layout of the cruise terminal, we are not able to begin check in before 1:00pm and you will not be able to come inside. There is very limited space at the cruise terminal, so to avoid congestion, we ask that you please arrive at the time you selected during online check in.”
  3. 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
  4. Has anyone stayed in cabin 14055 or 14040? Any pros or cons worth noting? Sent from my iPhone using Cruise Critic Forums mobile app
  5. Did a search and not finding anything. Last was 2015 it looks like.
  6. 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
  7. We are booked on the EPIC TA in April 2021 in H9 Spa Suite. It's 14 nights from San Juan to Barcelona. We've sailed mostly on Royal Caribbean and Celebrity. We sailed once on NCL Escape and won a bid for Aft Haven and we purchased week passes for the Thermal suite. We loved the ship, entertainment, food, Haven, Thermal Suite and the wonderful Aft balcony. I do think it would have been even more relaxing had we had a cabin in the Haven area but the walking was good for us. We have loved all of our 8 cruises so far. All have been balcony cabins with 2 suites - Aft suite on Escape and Sk
  8. Hi All, I bid on an upgrade from an inside to a balcony for our upcoming Epic cruise. I got an email yesterday that my bid was accepted, but we got an enclosed balcony, but it's supposed to be a large balcony on deck 11, cabin 11009. What can you tell me about these enclosed balconies? We've never had one...did I get a bad upgrade??? ~Joanne
  9. We have sailed the Epic once before, so we know the ship itself is poorly designed. However, I just read about a dozen reviews and about 10 are one star. I know there are a lot of complainers out there and have seen other ships get slammed, but this is unsettling. We sail the 26 th of this month and are hoping we have a much better experience. We have about 30 cruises under our belt and at least 10 with NCL,. We have never had a one star experience, so hopefully this will continue. We will report when we return with a detailed review. Has anyone had a recent good experience?😎😎
  10. If I don't want the Picture Package . Can I buy a couple? How much are they each?
  11. We sail Feb. 16th out of San Juan. We have a big group (60 passengers). Wondering what the current themed nights/parties are onboard so that we have the appropriate party wear/gear! Can anyone who's been on recently give us an update?
  12. 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?
  13. I have been thinking of the Epic Western Med cruise and thank you to all that gave me their opinons. After pricing airfare and itinerary it looks like the last week in Aug. is the best price for us. Now I am looking at which deck. Is there any advantage to either? Thanks.
  14. Hi All! We are looking to book at 13 day transatlantic in November. We've been on a handful of cruises but not on any of NCL's new ships. This cruise is on the EPIC. The balcony with thermal spa is sold out, but the mini suite with thermal spa is not. Can anyone tell me more about the thermal spa? Is it worth is to book the MS with the thermal spa? The balcony WITHOUT thermal spa is $1300 pp while the minisuite WITH thermal spa is approx $1800 pp. Can you purchase them separately and how does that work? There are still aft balconies available so I would rather book that and add on a thermal sp
  15. We are doing back to back cruises on 2 different cruise lines. Our first cruise is on the Epic and our 2nd cruise is on the MSC Seaside. So I was wondering the price of using the laundry services on the Epic. Thanks for any info.
  16. We sailed EPiC on its inaugural season almost ten years against on our honeymoon. Back then we had to reserve a time for the icebar. I don’t see that option anymore. Is it walk in now? Are you still required to pay a cover charge? on another note it looks like blue man group and second city are gone? Is this correct? Thanks much!
  17. Hello - we are sailing on the Norwegian Epic on 1/16 and are wondering about the excursions. Is what is on the website all they offer for excursions through NCL? Personally I feel like they are all the same and not a lot of selection? We have been on many cruises before and don't remember the selection being so little for each port. I admit, we may have "missed the boat" on reserving some excursions being this late in the game. Any and all advice would be appreciated! Are there more selections once we get on board? Thanks! **Edited to add -- any suggestions on where to go/what to d
  18. We'll be traveling on the Epic on 1/16/20. Is there a sports bar or public venue onboard that will be showing the AFC/NFC Championship games? Go Chiefs!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
  19. We will be doing the 10 day Southern Caribbean on Feb. 5. Anybody have some dailies to share? Thanks, Lisa
  20. Hi - It's been a long time since we have been on NCL. Just booking our first sail on the Epic - 3 aft cabins 13287, 13289 and 13291. Can the balconies be opened to adjoining? Also - are there lounge chairs on balconies? Thanks in advance!!!!
  21. Going to be on the Epic in April. Noticed on the deck plans that they indicate a poolside casino on deck 15. I have been on the Epic the last 2 years and do not believe it was there, although last year they were doing construction on that side of the deck. Anyone been on recently and have any info?
  22. Can anyone tell me if there are options for ship tours on the Epic? We are silver latitudes members and sail in February 2020...
  23. 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?
  24. Like to know what movies are showing on the EPIC and where?
  25. 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!
